Pope Francis says women will never be Catholic priests

Pope Francis, has stated that the restriction on women becoming priests will not be lifted. Speaking to a Swedish journalist on Tuesday, during a press conference on-board his papal plane, the Argentine, Pope said:
‘On the ordination of women in the Catholic Church, the last word is clear,' Francis said, referring to an apostolic letter written by Pope John Paul II in 1994. The letter holds that ordaining women was not possible because Jesus chose only men as his apostles. ‘It was given by St. John Paul II, and this stands.
"But for ever, for ever? Never, never?" the reporter asked in a follow-up question and Pope Francis replied:
‘If we read carefully the declaration by St John Paul II, it is going in that direction.’

Yup ,that's the faith ! That's our doctrine, Not even global change can change that .

JayBoss said...

The Church doctrines, especially the Catholic Church doctrines, are cast in granite and will not change notwithstanding the trends of the society at any given time! Y'all should give it a rest biko, the Catholic Church was the one church founded and handed down by Jesus Christ Himself!, not these churches founded by some people who we can point out today, and who are eager to please their congregations or the society. As for me and my household, we are Catholic for Life!

Women are special! They occupy a special place in the life of the church and in the heart of God. However, to become priest? No. And this is forever and ever. The church teaches that the motherhood of the child is sufficient work for the woman.

Yes my man. Catholic Church remains the back bone and the custodian of Christianity even in this era of dwindling Christian faith.

Godson Ikechukwu. Show your children the way of the Lord that when they grow up they will never depart from it. Thus says the Lord. So yeah parents do have an earnest obligation to show their children to God the child dedication or christening that we all do even in protestant churches. If you know the significance and essence of baptism you wouldn't compare that of Jesus to us. He was born without sin ( original sin )

Lol anonymous 11:30 she be obodo. Ask her when the bible was written or rather assembled. The Catholic Church had existed so many centuries before the bible. And the collation was overseen by The pope at that time. That makes me wonder when people say the Catholic Church does not read the Bible. Who the hell wrote the bible y'all are referring to

The Catholic Church remains the back bone and the standing rock of Christianity even in tthe era of dwindling Christian faith. All eyes are on them. They remain the last hope for Christ's prayer "" that my church may become one "

If it were not for women, there would be no Christianity. It was either Mary or Salome that first saw the risen Christ and went to call the apostles.

Christie! A beg, make you tell these idol worshippers.

That's the catholic doctrine and it should be respected. People should learn to respect each others religion

Anonymous said...

Penticostal churches ordain women as pastors but catholics dont. Different churches have different doctrines and should be respected that way. Nextbpls

Anonymous said...

But it's a known fact na. Why are they still stressing it? Is this supposed to be a topic for discussion?

Anonymous said...

Women, na Eve for bible cause una wahala. Ever since God cursed woman for making Adam eat the forbidden fruit, that is when women's problem started. God cursed women and said men will rule over them and also cused man by saying he will sweat before he provides for his family. So dont blame this generation. It is Eve that caused it.
