I feel called because I am a Catholic, an ally, and a human being.  As a Catholic, I want to make a life-changing pilgrimage that embraces true equality and justice.  As an ally, I want to witness against teachings that exclude so many and demean us all.  As a human being, I want to honor our interconnectedness and participate in a more loving and complete vision of church.
