Priestesses

From The Mercery News:

The fledgling congregation gathered in a circle at Sunday Mass at Spartan Memorial Chapel to introduce themselves. A woman in a long, white robe spoke first.

``My name is Victoria Rue,'' she said. ``And I am a Roman Catholic woman priest.''

Rue belongs to a renegade movement that is ordaining women as Catholic priests, in defiance of the Vatican. Today, Rue celebrates Mass at the non-denominational chapel at San Jose State University.

Joining her at the altar on Sundays -- also in clerical robes -- have been a married man, his wife and another woman. The ceremonies prompted the Diocese of San Jose this month to warn Catholics that the sacraments there would be invalid.

It's a prickly issue more Catholic dioceses will face as increasing numbers of women join the ordination movement.

``God has called me,'' said Juanita Cordero, a Los Gatos woman who will soon be ordained as a deacon and aims to be a priest by 2007. ``Growing up it was never a possibility because it was always for men.''Read Entire Article


First, there are no Roman Catholic woman priests.
Second, nothing has changed since growing up. It's still not a possibility. The priesthood is still reserved for men.
