Links to Articles on Women's Ordination/ Altar Girls Will Be Future Priests/Bridget Mary Meehan



The barring of altar girls by a priest in San Francisco California is another example of blatent sexism in the Catholic Church. I believe that  altar Girls today will  become vibrant future priests! The God who calls is calling women to be priests today! Contrary to Ft. Illo, the catholic priesthood is not a male charism as there are over 200 women in the global Roman Catholic Women Priests Movement.  Bridget Mary Meehan, ARCWP,  www.arcwp.org


The first, he said, is that "boys usually end up losing interest [in altar service] because girls generally do a better job."
The second and more important reason, Illo said, is that "altar service is intrinsically tied to the priesthood and serve as feeder programs for the seminary."
"If the Catholic Church ordained women, altar girls would make sense, but the Catholic priesthood is a male charism," he said. "Nothing awakens a desire for the priesthood like service at the altar among the brotherhood of young men. At the risk of generalizing, I suspect young men serving with young women might just distract them from the sacrifice of the Mass, and perhaps even from a priestly vocation."
