"I can't unlearn that there is truth within me. I can't forget that the words I say — or don't say — have an impact on my sense of self, other marginalized individuals and future generations. I can't apathetically accept that status quo within the church where I work and the community in which I live."

- ​Teresa Coda, from her reflections on being part of the inaugural Joan Chittister Institute for Contemporary Spirituality: A Feminist Benedictine Option, shared in "Young women ask difficult questions to challenge church at recent Joan Chittister institute," published on Global Sisters Report
