Priestesses Flock to Baltimore

This past week while the bishops met in Baltimore, the Women’s Ordination Conference (WOC) and the Roman Catholic Womenpriests (RCWP) had their own 'meeting' with supporters in the same city.

A earlier Press Release provide the details:

Ordained Catholic women and advocates present a new vision of church while U.S. bishops meet
There is so much wrong with the headline - where does one begin? So what's right with this?

Ordained Catholic women? - Nope, an impossibility!

Present a new vision of church? - I'm certain they did that, but only for their own church, not the Catholic Church.

BALTIMORE, MD - November 7 - Women’s Ordination Conference (WOC) and the Roman Catholic Womenpriests (RCWP) will host an event on November 12, in Baltimore, Md., at 1:00 p.m. in the Stony Run Friends Meeting House, 5116 North Charles Street, while the U.S. bishops hold their bi-annual conference. Andrea Johnson, RCWP and former executive director of WOC, will preside at an inclusive eucharistic prayer service, and a panel discussion will follow. WOC has been demonstrating for women’s ordination at each of the bishops’ bi-annual meetings since 2000.
An inclusive eucharistic prayer service? Is this a simulated Mass, perhaps? Does inclusive mean its open to all heretics and schismatics?

“This event will bring the church one step closer to better reflecting the values of Jesus’ ministry, where women held undeniable positions of leadership,” stated Aisha Taylor, executive director of WOC. “In fact, in all four gospels, Mary Magdalene was named as the primary witness to the most central event of the Christian faith — the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
This event will bring the church one step closer to better reflecting the values of Jesus’ ministry...Right! And while Mary Magdelen did receive the honor of being one of the first to see Jesus after His Resurrection, they don't seem to find it at all strange that Jesus did not make her an Apostle, bishop or priest, invested with certain sacred powers...I don't recall that Jesus breathed on her and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit, whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven..."

For thirty-two years, WOC has advocated women's ordination in the Catholic Church, with the mission of bringing about structural change and creating a more accountable and inclusive church.
For 32 years, this group has been wandering in the wilderness while the Lord continues to beckon them to return to bosom of His Church - instead they endeavor to change the Church to fit their own ideas rather than submit to Christ's Church, guided by the Holy Spirit...

“We are reclaiming our ancient spiritual heritage and shaping an inclusive Christ-centered discipleship of equals, where all are welcome,” stated Bridget Mary Meehan, representative of RCWP. “We are focusing on living out our call and ministry instead of asking for the Vatican’s approval.”
What does this really say?

We are focusing on our pride and arrogance and our desires to be as disobedient as we possibly can. In emulating Eve rather than the Blessed Mother, we choose a spiritual heritage of disobedience to God, seduced by the father of lies...

The Roman Catholic Womenpriests movement is building a new model of priestly ministry for a renewed Church, based on union with the people they serve, so as to achieve the full equality of women and men. Women priests remind us that women are equal symbols of the holy and that the identity of priest should reflect the experiences of women.
Is must be wonderful to have been blessed with the authority to change what God has ordained - Rather than simply echoing Satan's "I will not serve" they go further, demanding that God serve them...

“We will amplify the voices of the 64 percent of U.S. Catholics who support women’s ordination. As the law of the Roman Catholic Church requires of us, we will express our opinions and share our vision of a revitalized church with the bishops,” concluded Taylor.
Amplifying the voices of confused Catholics still does not make right that which is wrong...These deluded misfits are lost, wandering about in complete and utter darkness. Remember to pray for their conversion.
