Time to allow women and married priests
Reading the recent article, "Women priest movement controversial," on the ordination of woman priests in the Roman Catholic Church, it becomes obvious the assisted suicide on the Eucharist by the Vatican and cooperating bishops continues.You would think they would welcome the assistance of these women.
The Irish-born priests who have served Florida so well are getting older, and there will not be any replacements from the Emerald Isle because of the cover-up of the sexual abuse of youth, leading to empty seminaries. U.S. bishops are importing priests from Third World countries, when these priests are needed in their own countries.
The majority of Catholic priests and laity would welcome the assistance of married priests and women priests, but if the priests dared voice that opinion, they would be sent home without a pension. So American Catholics sit idle watching their bishops close churches.Hopefully the Anglicans, Episcopalians, Lutherans and the other Christian churches will keep up the tradition of the Eucharist that Christ commanded at the Last Supper on the night before He died -- "Do this in memory of Me."
The Vatican and most of the American bishops are only interested in personal palaces, the Vatican Bank and masculine theology.
