Why preserve the history of Chicago Catholic Women? 1) To give a gift to all people, now and for future generations, so that they will know what was done for them by women and men who were committed to ending gender discrimination in the Catholic Church and society. 2) To write the history--her story--of Chicago Catholic Women so that our role in one of the greatest movements of the twentieth century, the Women's Movement, will be known and celebrated. 3) To convey the importance of Chicago Catholic Women as one the founders of the Catholic Women's Movement. 4) To sustain the strength, courage, and perseverance of great women who planted the seeds of justice in a Church that never appreciated their contributions, and of those who continue to work for equality for all women and our daughters. Join author Donna Quinn as she recounts and reflects on 25 years of Chicago Catholic Women (1974-1999), the group's work advocating for full equality for women in church and society, and its pivotal involvement in the Catholic Women's Movement. Donna Quinn is a feminist, activist, scholar, sister, and friend to many. She coordinates the National Coalition of American Nuns, advocates with the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and works with Women-Church Convergence, a coalition of feminist women and men working through twenty-six organizations.

Born to a Jewish mother and Protestant father in 1923 Berlin, Gregory Baum has devoted his career to a humanistic approach to Catholicism. In The Oil Has Not Run Dry, Baum shares recollections about his lifelong commitment to theology, his atypical views, and his evolving understanding of the Catholic Church’s message. Baum reflects on his groundbreaking work with the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) and how it helped to open the Church to a new understanding of outsiders - one that advocated cooperation with world religions in support of peace and justice and respected secular philosophies committed to truth and social solidarity. Later embracing Latin American liberation theology, he became a leading thinker of the Catholic Left in Canada, adopting radical positions that initially earned support from Canadian bishops in the 1970s. Diverging from official Catholic doctrines regarding women and sexual ethics, Baum eventually left the priesthood, but continued to teach theology and remained active in the Church. The Oil Has Not Run Dry also discusses the contrast between Catholicism in Quebec and English-speaking North America, and the ways in which Baum sees Quebec’s culture as more marked by social solidarity. This significant difference has inspired his own writings which present the original development of Catholic thought in Quebec to an English-speaking readership.

The word "ordinary" holds a double meaning. In one sense, it refers to something inconsequential or everyday. In the second sense, "ordinary" refers to the absolute church authority of a bishop, archbishop, or priest. In the Catholic Church, these figures are to be trusted with deepest, darkest secrets. To their congregations, they can never do wrong-or can they? When a series of international and seemingly unrelated events lead to the brutal murder of a Catholic altar boy, conflicting notions of the law, obedience, forgiveness and revenge test the faith of several Roman Catholic priests and two Catholic women. With the boy's death comes scandal and pain for more than just the family who lost a son. In the aftermath of the horrific crime and with the revelation of sexual abuse in the church, ordinary people must now confront ordinary authority, uncovering a web of deceit that stretches from the towns and cities of New England all the way to the Vatican. Even the law cannot reveal all things. In the end, despite the terrible acts committed in his name, only God will ever know the truth.

I acknowledge that researching this book was both a challenge and a (benefit/ blessing/joy). A lifelong Catholic who served in the priesthood for 28 years, I believed I would learn nothing new about the role of women in the Church. I thought that the conflict between the Church's male hierarchy and women religious was something that began less than 50 years ago...WRONG. I also thought that none of the leadership positions in the international church organizations were headed by a woman...WRONG. The hostility between the male hierarchy and women religious in the Church actually began a century before Vatican Council II (1962-1965). On the issue of women's leadership in the Church, Wall-Street Journal reporter John J. Fialka, author of Sisters: Catholic Nuns and the Making of America, tells their story and passionately analyzes their remarkable contributions to education, healthcare, social reform, civil rights, and their patient but determined persistence of a meaningful role in the Church. Today, with Catholic women religious and Catholic lay women becoming leaders of international Church organizations, there is a renewed promise for women sharing equal authority with men in the future Church. As reported in an earlier chapter, Sister Donna Markham, OP, Ph.D., was appointed the first female president and CEO of Catholic Charities U.S.A. This Dominican sister supervised a staff of 70,000 employees and administered social services to 10 million people at a time when, according to Crux Magazine, Pope Francis was pushing to give women more prominent roles in the Catholic Church.
