As a woman, I am happy to serve in other areas of my church. I do NOT need to be a priest!

So, how did other denominations come to the conclusion that women could be ordained?

Most Christian demonimations have a different conception of “ordination” than we have in the sacrament of Holy Orders, and a different understanding of the role of an ordained minister.

If the Catholic Church EVER decides to ordain women [which I'm sure they won't], I'll start learning Greek.

And if the Greek Orthodox Church ordains women . . . I'll start learning Hebrew and become an Orthodox Jewess.

But as I said, as long as there's a Pope in Rome, the Catholic Church will not ordain women. Jesus didn't ordain his Blessed Mother, Mary, or any of the women who assisted Him and His disciples. Now matter how a protest[ant] tries to skew the Scriptures, women were never intended to be ordained. We have a much higher calling.
