 "I declare that the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be definitively held by all the Church's faithful"
~John Paul II
I am so thankful that the Catholic Church has not bowed to the modern world on this issue. Follow the Bible, folks!

Catholic Ping!

I am conflicted on this.

The Church says no, but many of the holiest and strongest Catholics I know are women. Should they be denied the chance to serve the Lord as His voice?
Simplest case, take a look right here on FR. Catholic or Protestant both, the mightiest warriors for the Lord are women - and I am profoundly grateful!

I know it is the rules, but it is one I am not fond of. Accept it, of course, but really don’t like it in this case.

I know - obedience is a virtue - but I can still grumble about wasted talent.

What a difference a letter makes.

“Follow the Bible, folks!”

Yes, but whenever I mention Corinthians 14:34 and 14:35, I get a lot of “I just found something nasty in my Cheerios” looks.

Amen to that.
Jesus CHOSE to be a man as our Messiah. He CHOSE 12 men as His apostles. He could have done the opposite. He didn't and our Church respects His choice.

I never did think it was a big deal even way back in my quasi-feminist days. The women who get their grundies all bunched up are women who don't like themselves .... and Catholic priests have ALWAYS been a target of men-haters.
