I came upon some astonishing photographs in the "Sunday Review" section of the Sunday New York Times. These photos show Catholic Womenpriests, a group of women I had no knowedge of before last Sunday.
Apparently seven women were ordained as priests by some adventurous Roman Catholic Bishops in Germany in 2002. Then these seven went on to ordain more women as priests.
I couldn't get over was how priestly the women in the Times photo display look. I am not a Catholic, but if I were, I'd have no trouble at all accepting the women in the photos as priests.
What I love about this new movement is that it adheres completely to the Serenity Prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, (the Catholic, male hierarchy up to and including the Pope), courage to change the things I can (find like-minded bishops and go ahead and produce a body of women priests anyway, and the wisdom to know the difference (these women priests look plenty wise and at peace with God.
