CWN Editor's Note: “A revolution isn’t necessary to give women the place they deserve in the Church,” writes Lucetta Scaraffia, an Italian historian and frequent contributor to the Vatican newspaper. “It’s not indispensable to grant them the priesthood or the diaconate … We try to propose changes that can be carried out now, without touching dogmas or the Code of Canon Law.”
