Now. For the last time in this conversation, I am going to state clearly the issue in these remarks. PB Katherine Jefferts-Schori is an active priest in the Ministry of Jesus Christ. Her actions in helping to define the elements of this Ministry are legitimate, valuable, properly focused and in keeping with the directions and commandments given by Jesus to His disciples.
Period. End of conversation.
