Joanna Manning is a former nun from England who studied theology then left the order under the influence of Vatican II. She long championed the rights of women in the Church, but now she is a Canadian Anglican priest. Her three books are: Is the Pope Catholic? A Woman Confronts Her Church (1999), Take Back the Truth: Confronting Papal Power and the Religious Right (2002), and The Magdalene Moment: A Vision for a New Christianity (2006). In this interview, she discussed misogyny in Church theology, from Aquinas through John Paul II, as well as views of the poor and the role of Opus Dei in Church politics. An update describes Pope Francis's 2022 cancellation of Opus Dei's representation among the Bishops, and its new status as a diocese without borders.
Interview by Mary O'Grady; update by Frieda Werden, WINGS Series Producer.
Original interview recorded 1999.
