Oh Pope Benedict, for what do you fight? where is the battle? Open your heart. First you ignore pedophile priests? and now you turn your back on the only women who seek to make the church manifest in the world? Listen, with your heart.

Unfortunately, American Christian/Catholic women have allowed themselves to be seduced into thinking they can be like secular “Amazon” women. While the men of the church need to be again sensitized to their spiritual and natural duties visvia the great Lady the Church, women need to reimagine God’s balanced order where there is a divison of labor, responsibility and accountability. Look to the office of Prophet and leave Priest as Yahweh intended, male. Besides the named Miriam, Debroah, Mary etc.; the church should research Geramiah and Elisha more in depth for others.

The real power behind the Social Justice Sista’s would never be caught dead in a habit. A butch haircut and pantsuit is the fashion of the day. The Leftists that run this Organ like to hide behind the habit, with the press willing to play along with the game. Chauffeur is correct… they wackos have finally pushed the church into a corner…When Benedict passes….the full court press will be on.

They should just carry on their good work and ignore the Taliban in the Vatican. By the end of this year, the Christ will have returned to the world openly. When he does, he will straighten out these Vatican bishops who think they are the boss and that they are authorized to speak for God. See www.christmaitreya.org for more info.

There, with the discernment of the Church community, they may seek to be priests and bishops… and they are valued for their service to God, and for their insights as people, especially women. I left the Roman Church because of the lack of value and lack of a place for women, other than that of – as nuns – hiding behind high walls, or being teachers or nurses.
As an Anglican, I am happy to see women fully incorporated into the Body of Christ — and fully valued as persons who are capable of doing everything men can do. “Glory to God, whose power working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.”

Seriously? How can they thumb their nose at the official teaching of the Church and then be stunned by a reprimand? Do they think this is a Democracy where popular opinion determines what Truth shall be? If so, sure, then abortion would be fine. But all good Catholics (and good Catholic nuns) know better.

For those who know Catholic prophecy “…smoke will enter the Church…” and the events of Medjugorje, be aware that the fireworks are about to begin….
