You know for certain the the Trinity can over come every flasehood and never be repressed when you read an article like this.

Mat 16:18

And the Gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.

From the article:

Miriam Picconi and Wanda Russell were ordained into the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests, a group that's urging the Catholic Church to welcome women into its clergy. About 150 people attended the ceremony Saturday afternoon at the Unitarian Universalist Society in Ormond Beach.

Bishop Bridget Mary Meehan, who presided over the ceremony, said the movement is "a holy shake-up whose time has come."

"One could say this is the church's best-kept secret," Meehan said. "But no more."

The Catholic Church won't recognize the women's ordination as valid, but Picconi and Russell say they plan to worship out of their home with a small group of people.

Meehan said her group is seeking justice for all people, particularly for women in the Catholic Church. The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests has ordained about 130 women worldwide since 2002.

No question about it.

And, as The Episcopal Church leads The Way with ordination and installation of women deacons, priests and bishops, the patriarchal christians are taking note.

At first, their reaction was ridicule and cries of heresy. After a couple of decades, their insults have become a quiet sullenness, occasionally lapsing into overt tantrum-throwing and attempts at condescension and embarrassment, such as demanding that the American bishop not wear her pointy hat while openly communing with her Anglican peers in Britain.

In other words, "We can't tell You People how to act over there. But, when you come over here, you are going to behave like the hypocritical bigots of Old!"

LOL!!!....

Well, in a show of reasonable humility, she politely carried her pointy hat around with her and didn't put it on, except, probably, when she went to the bathroom.

In the meantime, while adhering to the Teaching of Jesus which is that one cannot put new wine in old bottles, she shook them to their boots anyway.

Now that they have had a woman Priest-Teacher come walk around in their midst, they are all up in arms about admitting the reality of their own bishops, some of whom are closet homosexuals. Their hypocrisy is plainly out in the open and cannot be put back to where they thought it was safely in the shadow.

The Roman Catholics are having the same problem. But, they are still even more deeply in denial about it than are their Anglican brothers.

The Eastern Orthodox are likely to move first, eventually reopening the Diaconate to women ordinants.

It is a time of transition. A very slow, but absolutely sure, decades and decades-long time of change for all of us. It is a rebirth of the Early Church, including the reconsideration, liberation and re-acceptance of some of the important and valid Teachings that were incorrectly declared "Gnostic" and therefore buried for a time.

Keep the Faith.

Todays catholic church is in utter chaos. World wide Sex abuse scandals by clergy, and lieing and coverup artist bishops that scan 1700 years. Many Priests worldwide now demanding optional celebacy. 2 investigations of the nuns in america by the vatican, and the nuns group representing 80% of them pushing back. Most catholics use or have used forms of birth control, Most catholics in much greater numbers do not attend mandatory sunday mass weekly. Most catholic laity believe celebacy should be optional, and growing groups believing women can be ordained priests. JUST TO NAME A FEW!....and the POPE SCREAMING BACK "NEVER"......

Yes its one big happy family!(lol)
