Reasonably Catholic: Keeping the Faith

As promised, yet more!

Hi! Welcome — and thanks for your patience with my belatedly posting the following bells and whistles related to the women-priests series!

First, so you don’t have to go back a day, here’s the audio to the Jan. 1st show, the interview with Rev. Gabriella Velardi Ward, pastor of St. Praxedis parish in Manhattan:

Here are the uncut interviews with the three subjects of the women-priests series: Gabriella; Jules Hart, producer of the documentary film Pink Smoke Over the Vatican; and Judith Levitt, whose photo essay on women priests ran in The New York Times. The black and white photos of Gabriella are by Judith.

Here are some audio excerpts from a Mass I attended at St. Praxedis. (It was a “shared homily” that month and so to preserve congregants’ anonymity, I didn’t record it.)

And some pictures I took with my cell phone:

This is Michael, who speaks at the end of the Jan. 1st episode about why he enjoys being a member of his regular parish and St. Praxedis.

This is a clip of Gabriella listing the ingredients in her special vegan shake as I set her audio levels:

And the print version:
Acai juice, liquid calcium/magnesium, liquid Vitamin B complex, liquid multivitamin, liquid CoQ 10, liquid acidophiles (carrot source), powdered rice protein, lecithin granules, liquid greens like E3 live or other green powder and a frozen banana (or another frozen fruit like blueberries)

Here is the link to the list of Roman Catholic Women Priests (RCWP) churches/faith communities/ministries. Find one near you with which to have dual “parishionership,” and thus advance the cause of women’s ordination!:

And click here if you would like to donate to RCWP.

Don’t forget to tune in on Jan. 15th for a show about, among other things, raising Catholic youth!

Happy New Year!

Maria
