sorry, I can't read a word of what is written here. this is the most pathetic thing I have seen. Sorrry if I am offending anyone, but it is. There is not respect to/for themselves, much less God.
And if the admin wants to take this off that is ok too. But it is a sad state of affairs in my opinion for what my two cents is worth.

If you want to know what they say, watch them here.

They are Roman Catholic women attempting to ordain other women to the priesthood. The Roman Catholic Church considers their attempts invalid and illicit and it automatically excommunicates them. Somehow they think that attempting the ordinations on a boat exempt them from the problems associated with it and makes it all OK. I haven't taken the time to try to figure out the logic.

Shlomo Wondering,

The reason that these women were ordained on a boat is that they claim that at the river was not part of any diocese. Further, they claim that 3 active Roman Catholic Bishops ordained them. I say when we find out who these bishops were we throw their bones into the very same river.

Poosh BaShlomo,

And the simplest question must be asked:
WHY STAY CATHOLIC?
I mean, these women can be priests, bishops or what ever they wish to be in other so-called Churches... so why insist on being Catholic?
they want a so called "renewed church" they can go ahead and renew it with all protestants - they will even have the privilege of deleting or even inserting new verses in the bible!!! (stated sarcastically)

just my 2 cents

Hi,

I've read a little about this group and all of the comments I read from the women involved have at least a hint of a grudge against the Catholic hierarchy.

I guess they keep calling themselves Catholic (although none of them actually are, any more) because it is a way to get in the face of all orthodox Catholics, especially the bishops who won't grant their wishes.

It is all very sad. Some of these women are quite capable and could do so much good as leaders in the Church. Unfortunately most people on their side and at least some on ours seem to think they need to be ordained to exercise their leadership in the Church.

People just need to get out more and observe. We do have female Church leaders and they come good and bad, just as their male counterparts, both ordained and not.

Shalom,
Memo
