Women's Ordination Worldwide congratulates Pope Francis on his election as pope.
We take hope from the fact that he is a leader who takes seriously his sense of solidarity with the poor and marginalized. Our prayer is that during his papacy, he will extend that compassion for the marginalized to women in the Church.
