Op-ed explains Church teaching on ordination of women
December 14, 2011
In a cogent op-ed piece of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Katherine Thomas explains why she has come to find it offensive when acquaintances ask her whether she wants to become a Catholic priest. She explains:
After thorough consultation, it was determined that it is not in the church's power to ordain women -- not just that it won't, but that itcan't. There is nothing the church can do to "make" the ordination of women valid.
This is because the Catholic Church does not manufacture what is true, but looks at the way things are, the way God has given them to us.
