"The May 2014 issue stands out in my mind as one of the finest ever for its portrayal of those [individuals], many of them women, who devote themselves wholeheartedly to the well-being of others. They are the true saints. This is the true Christian faith, beautiful in thought and action. This faith, not doctrine or religious tradition, is what brings hope to a desperate world". "Religions that do not progress alongside modern cultural improvements die out or fall into extremism, the Taliban being an example of the latter. If a woman can give birth to us, nurture and nurse us, run our household, keep the family together, stay strong in faith and action when so many men are falling by the wayside, surely, if she so wishes, she can do as well or better than a man as priest and preacher".
