Exclamation " Nun to be ordained as 'Priest' "

Have you all seen this?

What are you thoughts on this, and her 'calling' ?

I also think we should pray for her, so she wakes up.

This video is her talking about it.

She should skip the worldly offices she doesn't qualify for ... and go for the higher office even the Pope can agree she is called to. Being a saint.

A Saint outranks a living Pope let alone priest, as the living are still trying to make it to sainthood and won't until their life is over.

If you are going to promote yourself go for it ... but public disobedience doesn't fly even for those who are already priests.

This woman has gotten her fame now ... it would be best for her to rethink things if she is sincere about wanting to serve the Church.

And one must be ordained by a Bishop in good standing also. Not some group.
This is not even just a woman's thing - the Church does not ordain every man that applies
anymore than a job app guarantees a person a job because he (or she) feels "called".

If the Lord had wanted women priests, He would have first ordained His own Mother, but He did not!

She say what she wants and go through whatever hocus pocus might be used for " ordination " and she won't be any more of a priest than I am. Pure delusion.

I hear you , but:

The priesthood is NOT a worldly office.

Saints don't "outrank" others who have died in Christ, neither do they have more authority over the Church as the Pope or the parish as the priest.

But then again, I hear you!

Dissenting view :

If the Holy Spirit decides that she should be a Priest, nothing any of us think or do will change anything. If the Holy Spirit does not decide she should be a Priest, then she won't be one. This is not our call.

For those that claim the requirements for the Priesthood "cannot" change, keep 2 things in mind.

1 ~ Priest were not always celibates. In the early Church, they married. So the requirements have changed in the past.

And most important 2 ~ "For God, all things are possible"

God bless

Well, she ain't no nun, and she won't be no priest either.

Celibacy is not an absolute requirement for priests. It is a discipline imposed by the Church on the men who would serve as priests. It can be lifted tomorrow if Benedict feels led to do such. There are a number of men who are married and priests in the Roman rite of the Church.

While this is right, it has been taught by Blessed John Paul II that the Church does not have the authority to ordain women, and as such, it is impossible for the Church to ordain women as priests. So pretty much anything short of Our Lord riding down on a cloud and walking into the Vatican and Personally telling Benedict to go ahead and ordain women, it's not going to happen.

Celibacy has always been seen as a disciplinary matter, rather than a question of the validity of the sacrament. Many eastern Catholic churches have married priests and even in the Latin rite, there are married priests today.

The ordination of women is a completely different matter altogether.

This is one of the stories that sadly remind me of the Icon of the Heavenly Ladder of St John Klimakos. The closer you get the harder you can fall.

I think that you miss the fact that God cannot contradict himself and that denies the possibility of ordination for women to the priesthood in kronos (a.k.a. our times). There is the infallible statement that the Church does not have the authority to ordain women. Bishops are the ordaining authority in the Church and they do not have the authority to ordain women. Bishops are one of the requirements in terms of valid matter for the ordination to the priesthood. Thus women cannot be ordained to the priesthood in kronos.

This group that is proposing to 'ordain' her is simply delusional. She will not be a priest, and her attempt to do so puts her outside the communion of the Catholic Church. Women priests are an impossibility.

Sadly I disagree with you, they are not delusional. It would be nice if they were delusional because their culpability would be reduced, but I am afraid that it isn't so.
