“Voice of the Faithful has squandered a unique opportunity to unite all Catholics — hierarchy, laity, men and women in religious life, and priests — and has traveled a path that will only further divide the church. In its Web site, the group expresses a desire -to shape structural change within the church.- It believes it can accomplish this by establishing chapters in every Cath-olic parish in the world. These chapters would be called -Voice affiliates.- Never mind the obvious logistical problems inherent in such a venture. More important, the group has failed to articulate how these -affiliates- relate to the church-s constituent bodies and to those who are responsible for their day-to-day operation and governance.”
