I just call it political correctness and posturing, I may be wrong. All this does is give the other side justification to start the polemic of women priests. IMHO
I remember in past FR threads people quoting the Sacramentary instructions for Holy Thursday and the definition of the word Vir and so on, I guess it’s a moot topic now.
vir and viri = men
I really encourage all men to step forward next Holy Thursday evening and volunteer to be one of the twelve washed by your priest.
Don’t hang back.
