In this episode, we are going down the Holy path of Catholicism, but from the perspective of uncovering the radical truth. 

Most religious institutions tend to have largely hierarchical structures when it comes to making decisions and sharing common laws for those who would like to be priests. But with thousands of years of history, there may be some truths that were buried underneath layers of discrimination.

We are here to find out what that radical truth really is so who better to talk about this with than Margaret O'Connor. 

Margaret Mary O'Connor is a former chaplain and currently as a Eucharistic minister at Our Lady of Charity Parish in Buffalo, New York. she walks on picket lines to help keep the issues of women's ordination and church accountability on the priest sexual abuse issue at the forefront of any Catholic's attention.

Also a member of Call to Action, Future Church, Roman Catholic women, Priests Women's Ordination Conference and SNAP, which stands for Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, Margaret is the voice of truth in trying to gain accountability and admittance for a lot of wrongdoings and coverings of truth done by the Catholic church. 

So we will be diving into the Catholic church, unraveling its structures, hierarchies, and where people are getting abused. This episode is for the brave and curious.

We talked about:

  • Margaret's origin story, how she became betrayed by those around her after figuring out that there were women priests, deacons, and more. 
  • The radical truth of catholicism, what she found out (hint: it's about mother Mary)
  • The evolutions over time within the Catholic Church in enabling women's ordination

Enjoy!
