Breaking down the clerical hierarchy

Ken, yes, it's patriarchy that must end [What's left when things get broken? Ken Trainor, Viewpoints, Aug. 29]. In ending it, the Church will also have to break down the clerical hierarchy. Ordaining women might also lead to that, but I think decentralizing power from Rome to parishes and from clergy to laity won't occur without addressing it directly.

Thankfully, Jesus wasn't a Roman Catholic. Love can be tapped wherever hearts are open to it.

I appreciate your pointed and thoughtful piece.
