Cardinal Ouellet: ‘Involve More Women in Formation’

“I believe that for the priest, learning to relate to women in the context of formation is a humanizing factor which promotes the balance of man’s personality and affectivity,” Ouellet said in an interview in the May edition of the Donne Chiesa Mondo magazine also published on the Vatican News site April 24.

In the interview the Canadian cardinal said he believed that “the experience of collaborating with women on an equal level helps the candidate [for priesthood] to envisage his future ministry and how he will respect and collaborate with them.”

“If we do not start during formation, the priest risks to live his relationship with women in a clerical way,” he suggested.
