Wimmin’s Ordination?

If there is any doubt in your mind about women’s ordination in the Catholic Church go over to Creative Minority Report and not only view the video of the recent illicit ordinations in Philadelphia, but more importantly, read Cardinal Rigali’s clear and unambiguous re statement of the church’s teaching on this matter.

    A line from somebody else: ‘The Vagante Monologues’!(These women in fact have joined another church, albeit a tiny and largely imaginary one.)There are two Catholic opinions on women’s ordination, impossibilist and improbabilist. In any event the church has never done it and that doesn’t bother the devout much. You only hear calls for it from a rich minority living in Protestant countries, which is where their theology comes from and not from the life of the church.WO does seem a hobby issue among the English-speaking RC elderly.P.S. Note the huge revival of membership, fervency and influence in society of the Episcopalians after they did it… oh, wait.

    If one understands the primal origins and nature of the priesthood one must conclude that the priesthood is ontological. Since women have never been priests (going back to the dawn of time), we must conclude that the priesthood is an order of creation fixed to the human male. Since God doesn't change anything in the fixed order of creation, God doesn't ordain women as priests.
