Essay by Mary Boys, SNJM in Comonweal
An essay by Mary Boys, SNJM was included in Comonweal magazine's "Regime Change" series of writings in anticipation of the new Pope. The essay begins: "In early January a beloved friend of mine died. A serious student of Vatican II, she was a passionate advocate for women's voices in the church. The night I received word of her death, a phrase came to me in a dream: 'strategic perseverance.' When I awoke, those two words, which I had never before juxtaposed, stayed with me. I regard them as my friend's wise counsel, particularly with regard to living in the Roman Catholic Church today."
