Pope considering ordaining married men and giving women official ministries
Pope Francis urged South American bishops on Monday to speak ‚Äúcourageously‚ÄĚ at a high-profile meeting on the Amazon, where the shortage of priests is so acute that the Vatican is considering ordaining married men and giving women official church ministries.
Francis opened the work of the three-week synod, or meeting of bishops, after indigenous leaders, missionary groups and a handful of bishops chanted and performed native dances in front of the main altar of St. Peter‚Äôs Basilica with a small wood canoe containing religious objects.
Led in procession by the pope, the bishops then headed to the synod hall to chart new ways for the Catholic Church to better minister to remote indigenous communities and care for the rainforest they call home....
The Catholic church already has ordained priests who are married.
Eastern rites priests of the Catholic Church and Anglican priests who became Catholic.
The RCC need people to perform the "magic" act of the Mass
John MacArthur wrote: .... Scripture does not waver on the finality of Christ‚Äôs sacrifice on our behalf. He came to make a one-time offering for sin, never to be repeated. It was a contrast to the Mosaic covenant, which necessitated a system of near-constant sacrifices. But none of the Old Testament sacrifices could actually atone for sin. They could only serve as a reminder of God‚Äôs deliverance and foreshadow Christ‚Äôs final sacrifice which would conquer sin.
In the practice of the mass, the Roman Catholic Church has reinstituted an unbiblical system of repeated sacrifices, blaspheming Christ and perverting His work on the cross.
How important is the mass to Catholicism? The Catechism of the Catholic Church refers to it as ‚Äúthe source and summit of the Christian life.‚ÄĚ That is to say, it is the origin and the high point of the Catholic faith. It‚Äôs not peripheral‚ÄĒit‚Äôs the heart and soul of the entire system....

Quote:- "the obligation to be celibate is seen as a consequence of the obligation to observe perfect and perpetual continence for the sake of the Kingdom of heaven. Advocates see clerical celibacy as "a special gift of God by which sacred ministers can more easily remain close to Christ with an undivided heart, and can dedicate themselves more freely to the service of God and their neighbour." (Code of Canon Law)
How can Francis break or void Canon Law of the Vatican/RCC by using the inferior 'married' person as a priest. Does this indicate the UNspiritual worldly nature of RCC Canon Law?
This discriminates between the celibate and the married priest - Which of these will be the most effective in his ministry?
The future relevance of the RCC witness is at stake and the witness of its obedience within the community.
Or is Francis simply making a mundane choice when the RCC numerically is disappearing from world view? Regardless of RCC Canon Law?
It‚Äôs amazing that an ‚Äúinfallible‚ÄĚ pope is acknowledging the mistakes made by prior ‚Äúinfallible‚ÄĚ popes. Satan blinds minds (II Corinthians 4:3-4), and the Roman Catholic crime syndicate is one of his all-time favorite blindfolds.
The Romish Church likes to give the appearance of movement when there isn't any‚Ěó
Pope Franny wrote: .... A living Church can look back on history and acknowledge a fair share of male authoritarianism, domination, various forms of enslavement, abuse and sexist violence,.... .... A Church always on the defensive, which loses her humility and stops listening to others, which leaves no room for questions, loses her youth and turns into a museum...
excerpt from, "Pope Francis recognises Catholic 'male authoritarianism', but refuses women priests"
His Unholiness is right about women priests anyway.
