The Catholic Women’s Ordination group writes,
‘In our 21st century democracy, so celebrated by Pope Francis, we must challenge our lack of freedom of speech in the Church.
At Westminster Piazza, on Vocations Sunday on 7th May, CWO were warned off the Cathedral steps, and told that we could not receive Communion, because we ask for women’s ordination and equal treatment as people. ‘Ordinatio Sacerdotalis’ still prevails. We may not speak out against its injustice and inaccuracy, despite its widespread condemnation by theologians. Does not the hierarchy understand that we love the Church, and wish only to serve it fully, equal in every way to the men who are allowed to do so?’
To disrupt a Mass and bring upset to a priest is sinful. The piazza of our Cathedral Church isn’t the place for arguing and protest.
If these women truly cared for the church they’d offer to fold the priest’s roman chasuble and cook him lunch.
Women have the greatest honour within the Church- raising Catholic families.
