Pink smoke

Pink smoke

After a couple days of black smoke, those anxiously waiting outside the Sistine Chapel finally saw what they were waiting for: white smoke…the confirmation of a new pope.

During the day, many also saw pink smoke:

At the height of the papal conclave, a group of women gathered at the Vatican to protest the church’s policy forbidding women from becoming priests….

“The Catholic church should be a healthy and vibrant place with equality, with both men and women called to the priesthood. Jesus did not exclude women. Jesus encouraged women and actively sought to include them,” said protester Miriam Duignan.

The BuzzFeed report includes pictures of the women releasing pink smoke, as well as video.

"Pink Smoke over the Vatican" is a documentary by filmmaker Jules Hart on the topic of ordination of women.

I just discovered this film a week ago and have not had a chance to check it out yet.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
