Women Risk Excommunication to Become Priests
From an news AOL post this morning, it seems that there is going to be an ordination service in Pittsburg today, Monday July 31, 2006, in which a few Roman Catholic women are going to be ordained priests. Seems that such services have occurred in Europe and in 'international waters' in the last few years, but not on US soil. This will be a first. Anyone else know something about this?

    What do I know about this?

    That Victoria Rue did the same thing up here in Canada last summer Here's an article about her: http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/archive/2005/July/19/local/stories/08local.htm

    I'm glad to hear that it's happening down south as well. I think God is proud of these women.

    Thanks Lydia!

    They are brave! It's always so difficult to go against the flow ... like paddling a canoe upstream!

    This has motivated me to pull a book off my shelf titled: When Women Were Priests by Karen Jo Torjesen.

    Time to review a little history! :-)
