The Vatican

Hi Kate,
The Vatican is putting pressure on Roy Bourgeois, the Maryknoll priest activist who is involved with the Close the School of the Americas Campaign, because he has attended and preached the homily at the most recent roman catholic womens’ ordination. Are you involved in efforts to dismantle/transform church patriarchy or is it a non-starter for you?

Dear Sister,
I so happily remember those little Maryknoll books of my youth! They really inspired me to do missionary work. My particular work is within my area of expertise which is comedy. It is not religions I mind, it is their fundamentalisms. So in my work I do try to expose hierarchical hypocrisies. I admire anyone who tries to transform the church from within, but find I do not have the temperament for such work.
