Pope Francis Champions Women’s Role in the Church

In a landmark meeting with participants of the international conference “Women in the Church: Builders of Humanity,”  Pope Francis delivered a poignant message affirming the indispensable role of women within the Church and society at large.

“The Church needs to keep this aspect in mind, because the Church is herself a woman: a daughter, a bride, and a mother,” declared the Pope, underlining the intrinsic connection between the Church’s identity and the feminine principle.

Emphasizing the need to recognize and appreciate women’s contributions within the people of God, Pope Francis called for unity, discernment, and collaboration as essential pathways towards achieving this imperative goal. He acknowledged the profound impact women have had throughout history as agents of change, builders of communities, and bearers of faith.

With unwavering conviction, the Pope reiterated his commitment to fostering an inclusive environment where women are empowered to fully exercise their gifts and talents within the Church’s mission of love and service to humanity.

The conference, which convened esteemed leaders, scholars, and activists from around the world, served as a platform for meaningful dialogue and reflection on the critical role of women in shaping the present and future of the Church and society.

As Pope Francis concluded his address, he urged all members of the Church to embrace the richness of diversity and to work tirelessly towards creating a more just and equitable world, where the inherent dignity and worth of every individual, regardless of gender, are upheld and celebrated.
