What Upsets Women Most

From: Leona Heraty

I am responding to something disturbing I read on your Web site. (See: Women Priests?) How could you possibly know "what girls everywhere dream of" and what "upsets women most?" Have you ever been a woman? Since I am a woman, I would never assume to know what boys everywhere dream of and what upsets men the most


Dear Leona,

Others have also got stuck on that point, so I figure it was poorly expressed. Still, can men and women not communicate to each other our dreams - and irritations? If not, I have spent a good part of my life in an exercise in futility. But I don't think that is the case. In fact you have shared with me something which disturbs you.

God bless,

Fr. Phil Bloom
