Kvinnor utses ovanifrån - och från gräsrotsnivå
Ett litet inhopp får det bli i bloggpausandet.

Så börjar redan kvinnor "historiskt" utses till tjänster...

Som sagt - det blev en "exemplarisk" katolsk kvinna som nu får ta hand om välgörenhet - ett kall, menar hon.

"She is a talented leader from a solid Catholic family"

“[she] is an outstanding example of lay persons bringing their skills and talents to the work of the Church for the good of all whom we serve and the wider society”

"Working for a non-profit is something that Dearing has always felt called to. "I've been working with nonprofits and made a very conscious choice that that's where I wanted to spend my life"

Intressant jämförelse:

Samtidigt hittade jag också en artikel om kvinnorna som vigdes i New York - långt borta från det präktiga och oklanderliga idealet i artikeln ovan.

Journalisterna tar naturligtvis fasta på vad de vill - men detta tyckte jag var det viktigaste:

"The reason that the women are determined to remain Roman Catholics, instead of forming their own church or joining another - such as the Episcopal Church, which ordains female clergy - is that they consider the Roman Catholic Church to be their family, albeit a dysfunctional one, and they have no intention of abandoning it. “It’s in my bones,” said Fresen. “It’s in my blood. There are a lot of things wrong within the church, but I love it, and the only way to change it is to stay.” They added that excommunication, contrary to popular belief, does not remove one from the church; it only means that one cannot receive the sacraments. “Nothing can put you out of the church once you have been baptized,” said Fresen. However, after the first seven women priests ordained on the Danube in 2002 were promptly excommunicated, none of the other ordained females has been excommunicated."
