Here is the story from the Boston Globe, in advance of the "ordinations."

Here is the link unmasked, if I have made an error that needs editing.

We have had some discussion in another topic about female priests and bishops. Here is the issue in the context of the RCC and the United States, with regard to women who want to be, and think they are, priests.

In 1994, in the most definitive recent Vatican statement on the issue, Pope John Paul II issued an apostolic letter in which he wrote, "I declare that the church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women."

In its own statement, sent to priests by a vicar general, the Rev. Richard M. Erikson, the archdiocese said, "The ordination of men to the priesthood is not merely a matter of practice or discipline within the Catholic Church, but rather, it is part of the unalterable Deposit of Faith handed down by Christ through his apostles."


The last statement sums it up pretty well. Historically, Protestants verify the unalterable Deposit of Faith in the Scriptures--and it is, indeed, there. It is the Lord's decision to make, not ours, and He has told those who obey Him what to do.

Christ had many disciples in whom he placed his trust and his expectations that they would spread his word- deposit of faith. One of these was Mary Magdalen - unalterably female!
Where is the problem? If Christ himself chose a woman aren't those who argue against women going against the word of the Lord ?
