When I grow up (if I do), I would love to be half as well-educated and as eloquent as my dear friend Pat Gohn. The author of Blessed, Beautiful and Bodacious and the host of the Among Women Podcast, Pat is the perfect person to help us better understand the context of Pope Francis’ now famous airplane press conference, and specifically his comments on women.
Today over at the Washington Post’s “On Faith” platform, Pat Gohn offers a fantastic primer for those seeking a better understanding on the Church’s current “theology of women”. Over the past several years, Pat’s academic pursuits, her work online and in social media, and her authorship of a groundbreaking book for women have all been aimed at transmitting the Church’s teaching on the dignity of women and the feminine genius in clear, uplifting and resounding ways.
And Pope Francis, if you’re reading this, give Pat a call. She’d be the perfect person to help you move forward with communicating Catholicism’s theology of women.
