I am glad to note that the Holy See has finally put its foot down and said no absolutely to the attempted ordination of women priests, on pain of excommunication!!
It is high time they put a stop to this nonsensical talk of women priests, which is an abomination unto the Lord and which flies in the face of the Divine Order.
Our Saviour did not choose any women to be His apostles, although He certainly permitted them to serve Him and attend to His needs, as it should be. Even when His own Mother came to seek Him (Matthew 12:46-50), He taught us by His words that the place of women in the Holy Gospel was clearly circumscribed. Who is my mother? He demanded, rebuking the meddlesome woman who presumed to question His movements, even though He be her Son.
Likewise, when a man seeks Holy Orders, he must first demonstrate that he is physically whole in every way. This is because our Divine Lord did not summon cripples or those with deformities to follow Him.
There is great wisdom in the ancient laws of Mother Church, and they should not be set aside by the fripperies of a brief and fleeting fashion to elevate “Women’s Lib” above the Law of God, which is constant and immutable.
We spend too much of our short lives questioning that which is given to us by the Lord and his Vicar on Earth, the Holy Father. It does us little credit to question the Holy Father’s word, for this is a learned and holy man.
I do not know why women would choose to be priests when there are many religious orders constituted specifically to provide an outlet for their feminine urges to care for and serve mankind.
Truly, the ways of Woman are a mystery to us all!
