    It appears that you don’t understand why women cannot become ordained priests in the Catholic Church…..Priests stand in for Jesus Christ, called Personna Christi. Jesus was a man; the Catholic Church is the Bride of Christ; Priests are married to the Church [Personna Christi] and most love their Spouse and would want no other; Marriage is between a man and a woman, making a covenant with Jesus Christ. So a woman could not take Christ’s Bride, the Church, for her Spouse; the Church cannot change the Truth to suit people’s ideas of today if it goes against the Truth. We know that Truth is constant, never changing. At least we have that stability in our lives, thank God!
    God bestowed wonderful gifts upon women; His Mother, a woman, had the highest honor a person could ever receive….she was the vessel which brought Jesus to the world. We have Mary as our model of perfection–be perfect as your Father in Heaven is perfect, the Bible tells us. When a man and woman unite in the Sacrament of Matrimony, they have the gift of possibly bringing life to the world as long as they remain open to this covenant with God. No others are to partake of this marital covenant except a man and a woman, married to each other.
    I hope this helps you understand why women cannot stand in Personna Christi now......

    Really a sad day... I am not Catholic, but I truly feel for my Catholic friends. And then to lump ordaining women in with pedophilia is beyond stunning. The Church has truly lost its way at the top, and all of Christianity will suffer for its moral failures...

    Well it said topic is going to be once again discussed, lets repeat some commentary. Is not this topic a bit overdone? The RCC is collapsing from within for many reasons. Might as well watch as all of Christianity also slowly passes into oblivion. Jesus simply did not rise from the dead and was never some son of some three part god. Add to this the pedophilia in the RCC, the Seventh Day Adventists, the Southern Baptist Convention, and the very "Christian" Boy Scouts and one can hear the foundations crashing.
