This article with an Irish Catholic bishop sums up the slow change toward women priests.
The reality is that women do most of the work in parishes in Ireland and thatcthe Catholic Church is on the brink here because in next 10 years they predict an catastrophic drop in male priests.
So, they will either have to ordain women or change sacramental theology to allow lay ministers to preside at all sacraments. Actually, in some places now, they are training lay ministers to preside at baptisms, weddings, and funerals.
The interesting thing is the Roman Catholic Women Priests international movement has been leading the institutional Church by ordaining women and empowering the baptized as partners in sacrament all ministry for 20 years.
