the non-story of a non-priest
What's wrong with this story?
Janinie [sic] Denomme who was ordained a Catholic priest in April last year has died of cancer. The Archdiocese of Chicago is refusing to allow her to be buried at her Catholic parish.
And this one?
A Chicago woman who devoted her life to the Catholic Church and advocated that the church accept women as priests died Monday, and now the church will not allow her to be buried at her own parish.

The unfortunate woman was 45 years old - probably the youngest, by far, of those women who have attempted ordination.

Both headlines from the seculars are absurd. It's amazing how the pc crowd wants to claim for itself the power to validate ordinations as if they care about such things. This is another example of a press corrupted by anti-Catholic bigotry venting it's rage. In reading these things play Handel's aria from Messiah: Why do the nations so furiously rage together ...?

May the Lord have mercy on her soul. And should she be granted that mercy, let us pray that 'she' can now pray for all those who deceive themselves and others in the Church.
