Jubilerande jesuit sorgsen över Vatikanens skrivelse
Läste en mycket fin bloggpost idag i America Magazine, skriven av Francis X. Clooney S.J., som snart firar 30 år som jesuit!

Nedan några utdrag:


"We all know that there are Catholic women with a very deep conviction that God is calling them to priestly service in the Church. Many of these women, during long years of service to the Church, have discerned the matter over and over again, tested it in community -- and still affirm, "God is calling me to ordained ministry, to the priesthood." Some of these women have suffered very patiently and quietly in a Church that says it cannot ordain them; some have left, often sadly, and welcomed ordination in another Christian community; and some, reports tell us, have been ordained by bishops -- and for this, they are to be counted as excommunicated.


But no matter what we think, there is room for quiet lament, and particularly those of us who are ordained should feel this sadness mingled with the joy appropriate to anniversaries of ordination. The priesthood is, as I have said, a great gift, and I know how very sad it would be to have been barred from it, from the start or along the way. I can only try to imagine the sentiments of a woman who has experienced, with humility and conviction, this calling, faced as she is with the prospect of the Church's insistence that it is incapable of ordaining women -- as if to say: "Even if God calls, the Church cannot."
