I have heard that members of the Church of England are still debating the thorny issue of women’s ordination. Just to help our brothers and sisters see the issue more clearly here is the teaching of Pope John Paul II on the issue:
Wherefore, in order that all doubt may be removed regarding a matter of great importance, a matter which pertains to the Church’s divine constitution itself, in virtue of my ministry of confirming the brethren (cf. Lk 22:32) 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. — May, 1994 - Ordinatio Sacredotalis

So what’s all the fuss?
