Google News Publishes Roman Catholic Womenpriest Bridget Mary Meehan's Article on Historic Ordinations in Boston and Kentucky in 2008

History -Making Roman Catholic Womenpriests Ordinations Viewed by Millions--Maryknoll Priest Co-Celebrates and Gives Homily in Ordination in Kentucky--a First Step of Solidarity with Womenpriest Movement - Aug 20, 2008

An official from Google News invited me to write this article on Roman Catholic Womenpriests for publication in July 2008. The official stated that Google News noticed that there were a great number of articles on the Boston ordinations indicating media interest from around the world. They wanted our perspective on the movement and invited the ordinands and me to write a commentary. Thus, Judy Lee and I published an article in response to the invitation.However due to some technical difficulties, the article only stayed up for one day.
In August, they invited me to write again. So this time, we linked the article to the Kentucky Ordination of Roman Catholic Womanpriest Janice-Sevre Duszynska. The National Catholic Reporter published the news of Maryknoll Fr. Roy Bourgeois's homily and the call of Maryknoll to initiate a dialogue on the issue of justice for women in the Roman Catholic Church.
My updated article is now up on the Google News site for 30 days according to the Google News Division.
The moral to the story is to never give up!
Bridget Mary Meehan
