Girl Power?

I get very frustrated when people start to tell me that there aren't enough women in positions of power in the Church (by which they usually mean that there should be women priests running the parishes). For a start, this completely misses the point about priesthood, which is nothing to do with "power" and everything to do with self-sacrifice...

So I was delighted to come across the following quote from Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State, on women in leadership:

"I'm not a person who thinks the world would be entirely different if it was run by women. If you think that, you've forgotten what high-school was like."

Thanks to Fr. Stephanos for highlighting that one.
