It's time to give women real roles in directing the life of the church
St. Ignatius Loyola recommended the use of the imagination in prayer, placing ourselves in the Gospel events in order to experience and understand them. It can, indeed, be a way to deepen one's encounter with the Lord in Scripture.
However, there is a story in John's Gospel that defeats my imagination. John 8:3-11 tells of a woman who had been "caught in the very act of committing adultery." The men who arrested her bring her to Jesus in order to hear what he might say. They point out that the law of Moses calls for the execution of adulterers, and they are ready, willing and even looking forward to flinging the stones that will do that.
Jesus merely crouches down and starts writing something in the dust with his finger.
