"Bread, Not Stones"


The Women's Ordination Conference and our partners in church reform gathered on Monday in Baltimore for a prayerful witness calling for "Bread, Not Stones," ahead of the US bishops' conference meeting where they were to vote on a controversial document on the Eucharist. Just about 50 of us where there, praying, marching, chanting, and singing, as the US Bishops met behind closed doors.

WOC led the way as we carried our message of inclusion to the hotel where the bishops were meeting, encountering aggressive hecklers along the way. We stood courageously and firmly in our faith that teaches us that it is wrong to weaponize the Eucharist, and that there were no orthodoxy tests at Jesus’ table.
