(Vatican Radio) The Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano’s monthly insert “Women
Church World” (Donna Chiesa Mondo) will be offering a series of articles focusing
on the theology of women, beginning with its next edition January 2-3.
series comes in response to Pope Francis’ repeated calls for a reexamination of the
“theology of women” in the Church.
As editor Lucetta Scaraffia explains in
a January editorial, each month a male or female theologian will analyze “this open
question central to the Church today” as a means for “enriching…the discussion” about
the contributions to and the role of women in the Church.
and writer Msgr Pierangelo Sequeri will be the first to author a piece in the series.
monthly insert also highlights the family which will be the focus of the Synod of
Bishops in October 2014.
