Papal advisers say Francis will know right moment to act on women deacons
Crux Now
Members of Pope Francis’s study commission on women deacons spoke publicly for the first time Tuesday, saying the pope has their report and expressing confidence that when the moment comes, he’ll make the right call.

Uh oh. Looks like girl cooties coming to a Roman Catholic church near you real soon now. :mrgreen:

Most U.S. bishops say they would ordain women deacons, if Vatican gives OK
Crux (Roman Catholic slant but not official)

Not a sure bet of course.

Update: That's right even more Roman Catholic girl cooties.

Irish Bishop Backs Female Priests as Diocese Votes to Ordain Women
Church Militant (Traditionalist Roman Catholic outfit)
An Irish bishop has committed himself to a specially devised delegation process for ordaining female priests after 69% of Catholics in his diocese voted in favor of the ordination of women.

The vote was part of a "listening process" initiated by Bp. John Fleming of the Killala diocese in north Mayo and west Sligo, after an analysis of clergy numbers indicated that the 22 parishes of the diocese would be served by three to six priests by 2037.

...

Father Brendan Hoban of the Association of Catholic Priests told the Irish Examiner that Bp. Fleming had committed himself to incorporating the suggestions made by the assembly into diocesan policy if they were within the diocese's capacity to pursue.

Suggestions outside the diocese's capacity would be forwarded to the Irish Catholic Bishops' Conference and to the apostolic nuncio who would be asked to forward them to the relevant authorities in Rome.

...

The Buddha's Prediction

Ananda sat at the Buddha,s side and argued on behalf of the ordination of women. The Buddha continued to refuse the request. Finally, Ananda asked if there was any reason women could not realize enlightenment and enter Nirvana as well as men.

The Buddha admitted there was no reason a woman could not be enlightened. "Women, Ananda, having gone forth are able to realize the fruit of stream-attainment or the fruit of once-returning or the fruit of non-returning or arahantship," he said.

Ananda had made his point, and the Buddha relented. Pajapati and her 500 followers would be the first Buddhist nuns. But he predicted that allowing women into the Sangha would cause his teachings to survive only half as long -- 500 years instead of 1,000.

Kinda looks like this will probably happen eventually.

I take it that it would require overturning official dogma though? Something they have been loathe to do in the past.

If it does, there will be a split, just as there was when the Lutherans in the USA went that way.

Each claiming to be the real-o true-lo Roman Catholic Church, and each with a Pope.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Deal! The Pope's palace there is one of my favorite examples of medieval (defensive) architecture.

John Paul II’s ban on female priests ‘not a dogma’: key Amazon Synod organizer
Life Site News
...

Bishop Erwin Kräutler, the retired bishop of Xingu, Brazil, made this claim in an interview with Blickpunkt Lateinamerika, the journal of the German relief agency Adveniat – a group which heavily funded the preparations for the upcoming Synod happening in Rome October 6-27.

Making it once more clear that he is in favor of female priests, the Bishop explained that the reason why he never speaks of “viri probati” (morally proven married men who could possibly be ordained), but, rather, of “personae probatae” (proven persons) is because the former is “too much bound to one sex.”

“I know it is not easy to oppose exclusion of women from the ordained priesthood, as it has been cemented [sic] by Pope John Paul II in his 1994 apostolic document Ordinatio Sacerdotalis,” he said, adding: “But, even if the Pope explained at the time that 'all the faithful of the Church are definitely to hold this decision,' it is nevertheless not a dogma.”

In 1994, St. John Paul II declared in an apostolic letter Ordinatio Sacerdotalis that the Church has “no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be definitively held by all the Church's faithful.”

...
This is one of those very very few times when I have to admit I was wrong about something.

I always figured the next big split in the Roman Catholic Church was going to be the gay thing, but it looks like it's going to be the girl cooties thing.

Was the late pope speaking "ex cathedra" or whatever it is that makes what he says officially infallible?

So ridiculous.

And wasn't he just reiterating what was already the official dogma?

That is exactly what they are disagreeing about.

Ecclesia Amazonica - Prepare Your Hearts: Deaconesses Coming Up Sometime in the Near Future
Rorate Caeli ("Traditionalist" blog)
...

In August 2016, Francis first established a commission to study female deacons. The commission reached the only logical result, though, as fits this pontificate, a muddled one: there can be no female deacons, not in the sense of the current use of the word "deacon", because the deaconesses of biblical times were charity workers, and not in Holy Orders, as the true Order of the Diaconate has always been.

Now, prompted by his handpicked Amazon Synod, Francis has announced he will reopen the commission, pick new members, and now we can be sure they will reach whatever result he tells them to reach. Which can only be one.

And the Catholic wars will make the battles of the Anglicans look like child's play.
Note that the "true Order of the Diaconate" is explicitly un-Biblical.

Not trying to sound like a bloody Prot here, but generally don't the RC's claim to be Biblical?

Ecclesia Amazonica?

Amazon Synod Pachamama Idols Thrown into Tiber River in Rome [Updated with Reactions]


Image

Breaking news from Rome, everyone: Some courageous soul has decided there’s been enough dialogue and bridge building and it’s now time for some action: The disgusting Pachamama idols that had popped up in the church of Santa Maria in Traspontina and that Francis had blessed in the Vatican Gardens on Oct. 4 in connection with the ongoing Amazon Synod, have been removed by an as-yet unidentified individual and cast into the Tiber river.
