Pope Calls for Expanding Role of Women in Church

The Pope "expressed a desire for women to become more involved in the Catholic Church. Recalling the 'indispensable role' of women in society, Francis said he has been pleased to see women sharing pastoral responsibilities with priests and families, adding he wants women to take on a role that is 'more capillary and incisive' in the Church. In the address, Francis praised women for their "gifts of delicacy,' including a 'special sensitivity and tenderness.'" 

"Capillary"?  women should be more like small vessels connecthing the ateries and veins of the church??
