The Vatican on March 8, 2018, released a brief video of words of Pope Francis about women and their importance to the Church and world.
Here is the text of the video:
Woman is harmony, she is beauty.
Without her, the world would not be so beautiful; it would not be harmonious.
A world where women are marginalized is a barren world because women not only give life but they also transmit the ability to see beyond, to feel things with a heart more creative, more patient, more tender.
I also like to think of the Church not as an “it” but as a “she.”.
The Church is a woman, she is mother, and this is beautiful.
Women are more courageous than men.
