Women Priests, a Canon Lawyer Speaks

by Steve Ray on October 8, 2008

My friend and Canon Lawyer Ed Peters on a recent priest’s comment on Women’s Ordination:

Fr. Theodore Hesburgh’s recent interview with the Wall Street Journal is getting some attention in the Catholic blogosphere, and it should: the WSJ article presents a casus classicus of how priestly ministry disappeared under the allure of social activism for the last 50 years or so. In any case, it is Hesburgh’s assertion that “I have no problem with females . . . as priests, but I realize that the majority of the leadership in the Church would” that deserves a canonical comment.
