From a Reuters article “Pope reaffirms ban on women priests, assails disobedience”:
“Is disobedience a path of renewal for the Church?,” he asked rhetorically in the sermon of a solemn Mass in St Peter’s Basilica on the day Catholic priests around the world renew their vows.
Disclaimer: I am an atheist, not a lapsed Catholic having never been Catholic, and should, therefore, maybe, not be so interested in this subject. But I can’t help it. This anachronism of an institution to me is like a train wreck in super-slow motion.
Pope, your holiness, forgive me for butting in, but the answer to your question, which something tells me you don’t know, is yes.
