"For the third time this week Pope Francis returned to the topic of women in the Church in his general audience catechesis. On Holy Saturday he had dedicated his Easter Vigil Homily to the women as the first witnesses to the novelty of the Resurrection. On Tuesday morning he had spoken of the tears of the Magdalene and how we should follow her example of faith in our life’s journey. On Wednesday he expanded his reflections to the women of the world, whom he said have a special and fundamental role in the Church and the transmission of the faith."
I believe that the holy father is working up to something really significant concerning women in the church. Perhaps before long we'll see female permanent deacons? Any chance?.... Bonnes Fêtes de Pâques, Buffalo!
Are we going to have deaconesses and priestesses in our Catholic churches soon?

"Priestesses" would take a while longer as there is so much theology at stake, but deaconesses are more possible - even the Greek Orthodox Catholics have "cautiously" ventured into ordained a few women deacons in recent years. The Roman Catholic diaconate since Vatican II has been restored to its original place as a free-standing order; those ordained to priesthood experience a temporary "transitional" diaconate of a few months, but "the diaconate" is not meant as a stepping-stone to presbyteral ordination.

You are right! There is enough trouble already with the permanent deacons. Competition with priests!Some are very aggressive!

Nothing new under the sun! Those white vestal virgins always find something wrong with everyone! Naturally, the White Fathers are not free of scandal either!

This is somewhat reminiscent of the Secundo case: no evidence, no credibility in the eyes of the police and DA. However, with Secundo he admitted to doing something, just not sure what it was.

I read the article. As sick as it is, I think this may have happened. The two things that bother me are: 1. Who in their right mind would go to a priest for marriage counseling? 2. When are people going to realize that priests are the same as anyone and they will manipulate people for their own purposes? Not all of them, but some.

Do not trust the Pauline priests. They are a sexy bunch!
Stay away from them.

The Paulines have been in trouble in their native land, Poland for quite some time. Many diocesan priests thoroughly despise them, because of their financial intrigues and sexual misbehaviot

Money and sex - this describes most dioceses, unfortunately. Look at all the deviant behavior in our own DOB. And Bialkowski is still hanging...
