"Seven months after his death, a Jesuit priest's call for the ordination of women has been released in a video.
Jesuit Fr. William Brennan died Aug. 11, 2014, at age 94. But he had previously asked his friend Alice Iaquinta -- a woman ordained in the Roman Catholic Womenpriests movement -- to record him standing by his conviction that women are called to the priesthood. He asked that she wait to release the message until after he had received a proper Catholic burial...."
In the video, Brennan credited his mother for his sympathy toward women's rights. He said that when his Jesuit brothers disputed women's ordination, he realized he "did not share their hostility," recalling his "childhood awareness" of his mother once being unable to vote. ..."
Bridget Mary's Response: Thank you, Fr. Bill, Alice and Janice for your witness for the full equality of women in the Roman Catholic Church including priesthood!
