The Other Side

For fair reporting, although I am not sure why, here's an article on the other side of the women's ordination debate. That he used a picture of the Little Flower disgusts me, really.

There are so many things I find wrong with this article! One is that fact that a Priest, a Priest of the Catholic Church, is writing this article!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the Jesuits currently under scrutiny by the Pope?

How he can call himself Catholic - without following the Magisterium's Teachings & Traditions is beyond me. Granted I have left the Church for awhile, but God has graced me with leading me back to the Truth.

Okay - I'm now ranting & raving...sorry. Just my opinion.

I'm completely unsurprised both by the use of the image of St. Therese and the fact that the author has the initials "S.J" after his name.

There is a section in "A Story of A Soul", I think, where Therese laments that she cannot be a priest. Yet the quote is taken out of context; her intention was never one of disobedience and all she was doing was musing.

One of the comments included a line that said something close to - 'The problem with the church to day is that is is so preoccupied with rules. It should alway put individuals first.'

Funny - that doesn't seem to be from the Bible or the CCC. That sounds like it's from some TV show full of psyco-babble.

The Bride of Christ - the Church - follows one individual - a person -Jesus and calls all the rest of us to follow Him.

These people have begun hedonistic pagens - they don't really believe in God - just themselves.

The problem is that too many of this bent, and I used to be one of them, is that they see the whole issue as a "power" struggle instead of a service issue to God and Church. Would I have a problem with the Church ordaining women?, no, but I don't see it ever happening.
