Australian priest challenges Church authority on women's ordination
Catholic World News - November 24, 2010
An Australian priest is waiting for a response from his archbishop after delivering a homily in which he called for the ordination of women to the priesthood.
"I believe certain women are being called by God to the ministerial priesthood and our official church is obstructing the work of the Holy Spirit,” Father Greg Reynods told his parishioners. “I feel I can no longer sit back and remain silent.”
The priest sent the text of his homily to Melbourne’s Archbishop Denis Hart. A spokesman said that Father Reynolds is now on leave.
