The prophetic call

“The prophets of our era lament the lack of religion’s concern for underpaid women, trafficked girls, beaten wives, and the miserable second-classism of women everywhere—in both church and state. Today’s prophets try to deter the ruthless, relentless, systemic violence practiced in the name of patriotism, calling itself “the Will of God.” The prophets understand why spiritual seekers cry out in despair for church leadership in the condemnation of nuclear weapons but get condemnations of condoms and contraception instead.”

— The Time Is Now: A Call to Uncommon Courage by Joan Chittister
