What SHE means ( ) is just what she said. The Church does not have the authority to ordain women.
Oh, and point to the OP: the priest who said that the Church “used to allow slavery and then changed”. . .I’m sorry, that priest is wrong. Chattel slavery was NEVER approved by the Church. The Church did not “change” because it never approved slavery to BEGIN WITH.
It is statements like those of that priest which are most troubling. Here are ordained men who supposedly know and believe the teachings of the Catholic Church who quite obviously do NOT know, or do not ACCEPT, those teachings, and are handing on AS Church teaching things which are not Church teachings, or denying as Church teachings things which truly ARE Church teachings.
Ahimsa, again the Church (which is the Body of Christ) has NO AUTHORITY to ordain women, because to do so would be to change the UNCHANGEABLE teaching. It would be like suddenly saying that God was no longer Father, Son, and Spirit, because we were going to add Mary into the equation in order to promote “gender equity”.
When it comes to dogma and to defined doctrine held as magesterium teaching or defined infallibly taught teachings, there is no “change”. . .and there never will be.
JP2 did not “make” the subject of women’s ordination a moot issue. It was made a moot issue by Christ Himself, just as the idea of a 4-in-one God was made a moot issue by God Himself making it clear that there is a TRIUNE God. When were these teachings made? In the deposit of faith which has been overseen by the Holy Spirit Himself. . .just as was promised to the Churchh.
