The Ordination of Women in the Catholic Church: Arguments for Teachers and Students in Catholic Schools to Consider--Part 2 the Case For
Bourgeois, Roy
International Studies in Catholic Education, v7 n1 p15-27 2015
Vatican authority is being challenged as Roman Catholic women act upon their vocations to the priesthood, receive ordination, and openly serve their faith communities. Since 2002--when seven women were ordained by male Roman Catholic bishops--190 women have been ordained to the priesthood, including a dozen women bishops. Vatican officials dismiss their ordinations as "illicit", but many Catholics believe these women are ushering in a renaissance of the Church as a truly egalitarian faith community. In this paper, I explain why I believe women should be priests.
