About time too!!
Patsy McGarry in the IT today reports about an 80-yr old woman, the mother of a monk who is organising a one-day boycott of mass:
I hope every Catholic woman in the country will join her on the boycott on the Sunday 26th September.Jennifer Sleeman from Clonakilty in Cork said she wants “to let the Vatican and the Irish church know that women are tired of being treated as second-class citizens”.
She has called on the Catholic women of Ireland to “join your sisters on Sunday, September 26th. On that one day boycott Mass. Stay at home and pray for change. We are the majority. We may have been protesting individually but unremarked on, but together we have strength and our absence, the empty pews, will be noticed”.
