WHY CAN'T WOMEN BE PRIESTS?

Brother Tom Forde (OFM Cap) answers this question quite well...


...Actually that's the wrong question. One should ask: why is ordination into the Catholic Sacrament of Holy Orders restricted to men? The answer requires first answering some other questions such as what is the Sacrament of Holy Orders and what is its relation to the Church?, what is a priest?, who is Christ? and what is the significance of gender to the human person?... Whole posting...

I have asked myself, "Where do we come up with this notion of rights for everything?" When someone is denied Heaven by sin, let them try using that arguement on God.

Thanks to Bro. Tom, from Dublin.
