Yes, this article is very well written. But Jennifer, I don't know why you insist on lumping EO and RC together as the same faith. They are not! Go back 1000 years ago and maybe they were, but certainly not today. It's a misrepresentation of reality, despite what your mind and your reasoning tell you!
As far as the "EO position" on motherhood, the "church's response" to the issue comes from all of her members, since while the Bishop is the earthly leader of the Church, Christ Himself is her head, and the "church's position" on any issue comes from how the faithful lead their lives. (This is why, for instance, my Bishop, His Grace TIKHON of San Francisco and the West says that the TRUE keepers of the faith are not bishops themselves but Orthodox Christians in Orthodox villages in Greece, the Middle East, Slavic lands, etc., for whom the Church is the center of their life and has been for hundreds of years....)
Most Orthodox Christian mothers I know choose to stay at home and spend the majority of their children, or have part-time jobs or work-at-home jobs that allow them to do so. So, I think, this is the "EO response" to this issue, i.e., how many, if not most, Eastern Orthodox women deal with it.
