It was with sadness that I prayed in church on International Women's Day. As every other Sunday, I prayed these words, "For us men and for our salvation" in the Creed.

Some of us women were discussing lately how it could take those working on the new wording in the liturgy so long, and yet no one pointed out the need for inclusive language. Or, did they intend to exclude?

The power of language is very significant.

I am still living in hope that one day our Church can truly celebrate this day.
