Women Priests: We Are the Ones We Are Waiting For

Mary of Magdala - Apostle 
In this week's meditations from the Center for Action and Contemplation, Richard Rohr is focusing on the role of the prophet. Women Priests are prophets within the Roman Catholic Church calling for women's rightful place in ordained ministry. 

Today he writes:
Prophets can deeply love their tradition and profoundly criticize it at the same time, which is a very rare art form. In fact, it is their love of its depths that forces them to criticize their own religion. This is almost the hallmark of a prophet. Their deepest motivation is not negative but profoundly positive.
