Gerard is a Catholic Christian. He worked as a teacher in a Catholic institution. He has actively participated in agitations conducted by teachers associations and was imprisoned. Currently he is writing social essays. He is also a spiritual thinker and hopes to see reasonable changes in the Catholic Church.
Author Gerard presents his case against the Catholic hierarchy with a combination of cold logic and heated diatribe.
He believes the loving service of Mother Teresa should serve as an example for all Christians and that the Church should open the roles of priestess and bishop, cardinal and even Pope, to women.
Rather like a modern Martin Luther, the author rails against the Catholic structure in which priests are called "father" and are the intercessors, along with saints and the Pope, between humans and God.
Thoughtful Catholics and other religious activists may find in Gerard's points a helpful guide to future useful changes in the internal structure of the Catholic Church.
