Why can’t women be priests?
In the Living Water Inclusive Catholic Community, they are. And that’s just the first way this community brings to life a spirit of radical inclusivity. For both the women-priests and lay members, being catholic means being as inclusive as possible, even if it means breaking with tradition and risking excommunication.

(1.3) christianity first, with John Dominic Crossan
do you spend more time thinking about christ or the pope?
for john dominic crossan - leading scholar of the historical jesus - being catholic means, first and foremost, being christian. if christianity claims to see a vision of god in jesus' life of nonviolent resistance to rome, then putting christianity first gives us a new vision of what it means to be catholic second.
(1.2) really present, with Joseph E. Jensen
is god really present in the world?
for emily, being catholic means grappling with the idea that god is really present in the bread and wine we receive at communion.
special guests, catie grace (9) and will (5), talk about the mystery of the eucharist, which joseph jensen elucidates through a lens of inclusivity.
