Rosemarie Smead is one of about women around the world who have decided not to wait for the Roman Catholic Church to lift its ban on women priests, but to be ordained and start their own congregations. In an interview before the ceremony, Smead said she is not worried about being excommunicated from the Church — the fate of other women ordained outside of Vatican law. I am way beyond letting octogenarian men tell us how to live our lives. The ordination of women as priests, along with the issues of married priests and birth control, represents one of the big divides between U.
Catholics and the Vatican hierarchy. Seventy percent of U. Male priests have been stripped of their holy orders for participating in ordination ceremonies for women.
In a statement last week, Louisville Archbishop Joseph E. The Catholic Church teaches that it has no authority to allow women to be priests because Jesus Christ chose only men as his apostles. Proponents of a female priesthood said Jesus was acting only according to the customs of his time. They also note that he chose women, like Mary Magdalene, as disciples, and that the early Church had women priests, deacons and bishops. The ceremony, held at St. Andrew United Church of Christ in Louisville, was attended by about men and women. Many identified themselves to a Reuters reporter as Catholics, but some declined to give their names or their churches.
The modern woman priest movement started in Austria inwhen seven women were ordained by the Danube River by an independent Catholic bishop.
Other women were later ordained as bishops, who went on to ordain more women priests and deacons. She taught at Indiana University for 26 years, and works as a couples and family therapist.
During the ordination ceremony, Smead wept openly as nearly everyone in the audience came up and laid their hands on her head in blessing. During the communion service, Smead and other woman priests lifted the plates and cups containing the sacramental bread and wine to bless them.
One of those attending the service was Stewart Pawley, 32, of Louisville, who said he was raised Catholic and now only attends on Christmas and Easter. But he said he would attend services with Smead when she starts to offer them in Louisville. More articles from the BDN. Crash reported at intersection of Griffin, Ohio streets.
