Pope Francis thanks mothers and sisters…

Tonight in New York, it was gratifying to hear Pope Francis recognize the plight of single mothers oppressed by abusive husbands and fathers, and those who support us, all of us mothers and sisters of mothers.

“To you, religious women, sisters and mothers of this people, I wish to say thank you, a big thank you … and to tell you that I love you very much,” he said, calling us “women of strength, fighters, with that spirit of courage which puts you in the front lines in the proclamation of the Gospel.”

In 2013, this Pope reportedly said women “are more important than bishops and priests.”
