Homily: Bishop Gumbleton: Time for Dialogue with women called to priesthood

Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
By Bishop Thomas Gumbleton

"...maybe God is calling us to a profound change and that is something that I think about this week because just a few days ago, -- a week ago now -- there was another ordination of a woman to the priesthood that happened in Lexington, Kentucky.

"Maybe if we think about this, pray over this, and maybe within our church if we really entered into dialogue with women and come to experience how they experience "I'm being called by God" just as honestly and with as much prayerfulness as any man who was ever called to the priesthood. Maybe if we listen to them, look at their faith, the love that they have for our church and for the ministry, maybe if we engaged in dialogue, we would see that yes, God has planted a seed where women have a role of leadership.

You removed my comment because I disagreed with you. I said nothing obscene, nasty, etc. Very intellectually dishonest of you.
