If it ever happens, I’ll bet they will have to be ‘celibate’ women...A whole new can of worms...
Petrosius has a new year’s resolution for The Daily Beast: be open to God’s plan for the proper distinctions between men and women.
And dogs once flew spaceships.
Of itself, being married does not preclude ordination.
Better look quick before they all dissappear.
Correct Catholic Masses would never permit a woman server. I realize this doesn’t apply to your Protestant service.
Half the Nazis spewing hate at the Daily Beast were fired last month. This anti-semitic Julius Streicher website has only weeks left before it sinks into the tarpit mire.
Die you democrat Nazi freaks.
As a Latin Rite (Roman) Catholic it does, until I’m a widower. The Eastern Catholic churches (in Ukraine or Iraq, for example), they have married priests, but I don’t believe they ascend in the hierarchy.
Iirc, Bishops in the Eastern and Orthodox churches have to be celibate. Anyway, I was just being technical.
As you said above, there are plenty of denominations that have women in pastoral roles. I wish Sr. Joan Chittister would be honest, before she dies, and join one of them!
And good morning! Is your family ready for Christmas?
I agree with you; these people (including plenty of men) seem to know the Catholic Church is the True Church, but rather than abandon it they’d rather pretend the truth can be conformed to their way of thinking.
Good morning to you as well (I never know when people are just getting on - as in “morning” - or working an odd shift where it is their “afternoon”). Still have to get a few things, but I have some days off to do it. Northern NJ will be a traffic nightmare today, since we have lower sales tax than neighboring NYC and our malls in the county nearest to NYC are closed on Sundays (”Blue Laws”).
It’s morning for me. I think we’re done shopping for gifts, but we need to get more food. The Christmas tree is supposed to go up tomorrow, in spite of the toddler, the cats, and the imminent arrival of the guest-dog. We’ll see how it goes!
Best of luck; it should be easier shopping for food than gifts. My mother describes how the parents put the tree up on Christmas Eve (after the kids had gone to bed) Christmas morning would be the first time the children saw it.
We have women and men Eucharistic Ministers serving Holy Communion at my Catholic Cathedral where I attend Mass.
These people need to go and start their own church. They don’t want that, of course, they want to corrupt and infect the churches/orgs/institutions they don’t like.
Not a Roman Catholic. Yes God loves men and women equally, but he also ordained different roles for them. Men are the spiritual and physical head of the household as well as the Church. But this is an awesome responsibility, not a power trip. Men are also to love their wives just as Christ loved the church and gave His life for her. Somehow the sacrificial love part gets left out of the “women obey your husbands” part.
I dont want women to lead the Church anymore than men could have children. There is nothing wrong or demeaning about having different roles in the family and in the Church, God ordained it that way. Neither is lesser or less valued than the other, just different.
Funny she doesn’t look like Barbie AT ALL!
You have Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC). The only Eucharistic Ministers are priests and deacons.
My teeth clench when I hear or read such things. I am an EMHC myself, serving only because there is a need/Fr. has asked - I am borderline against them personally.
When I first started, they were referred to as 'special' instead of extraordinary. As if people couldn't understand (once it was explained) that priests and bishops are the Ordinary Ministers, and we laity who help out are extra-Ordinary.
Well, and what is leadership? Teaching would be a leadership position, and one that women can do well as long as they don’t make it up as they go along.
Sorry I did not use the correct name. However, we do have men and women performing this task at the Cathedral where I attend Mass.
