I have been a reader of more magazine for many years but have never felt compelled to respond to an article. Your article on women priests upset me greatly.No matter what they say, they are not priests. To be a priest in the Catholic Church you can only be a man. These women are not priests. You can not choose what you believe in the Catholic Church . To be a true Catholic you must embrace it all. If these women want to be priests join a different church. Jesus did not say to Mary Magdalene come join me and be a priest. She loved him and followed him.
Yes, we are placed on this earth to love and serve each other but not as we decide but as the Catholic Church ,which has existed for over 1,000 years decrees. I believe as do other faith filled people of God that when we follow Gods will ,not our own we are fulfilled in our Life. I have been an RN for over 25 years and live this every day in my care of patients.

I found the article "Cancer: A Huge Leap Forward" in More February 2013 eye-opening. As a breast cancer survivor, I have researched the disease, treatments and so-called progress a great deal, as well as the fund raising and spending. I follow it all in awe.
I was astonished that this article confirmed my suspicions with a medical professional admitting the truth. They don't want to cure the disease.
According to Dr Brian Drucker, "the goal is to turn cancer into a chronic disease like AIDS." The goal is not to cure cancer. I firmly believe this to be true. How despicable!
Cancer is an enormous business that is critical to the "success" of the ever-powerful pharmaceutical industry, not to mention the medical industry, fund raising organizations and limitless other leaches. If they cured it, the trillions of dollars they've had at their disposals would go away.
I knew it. I just didn't ever think I'd live long enough to hear someone say it, and you printed it.
I am writing about the "Secrets of Gorgeous Hair". I can guarantee that if I had the hair of any of these women, I could consider it gorgeous, even if I let it air dry without any product. Here's an idea for a story; how about secrets for those of us that do not have thick, glorious locks? So many of your readers (or soon to be former readers, judging from the online letters about the May issue) have thin, sparse hair from chemo or menopause or just life. How about giving us some tips on how to make our hair look great?
I have been a subscriber for many years, but I am doubtful that I will continue. Your magazine is just not relevant to my lifestyle or budget.
I cringed when I saw this title. I have treatment resistant bipolar I with mixed episodes, complicated PTSD, ADHD, borderline personality disorder, and somatization disorder (I am a hot mess). I also obtained a Master's from a prestigious university and rose through the ranks to be a Director of Human Resources focusing primarily on employee relations. A few years ago I could have been in your article.
However, the reason I cringe, is that after a horrific year, I was forced to disability retire. My very creative psychiatrist has given up. I have literally taken every medication but two, had electroconvulsive therapy 3 times in 10 years, been in weekly therapy for 12 years, been hospitalized at least 15 times, tried CBT, DBT, Hypnotherapy, group therapy, art therapy, etc.....
When I see "recovery", I am both glad and saddened. Glad because in my lifetime I have seen an increase in awareness about mental illness and that many people can be valuable, contributing, successful people who happen to suffer with a chronic, life long illness.
I am saddened because using the word recovered implies people can overcome and control their illness if they just do the "right" thing. This is paradoxically both empowering for the newly diagnosed struggling to integrate the illness in their lives and disheartening for those of us who can't.
Love your magazine!
