When I read about women who are "ordained" in the Catholic church, I always wonder what they are thinking. Church doctrine cannot be changed because of personal WILL or DESIRE. It is doctrine, not an opinion. It seems to me that this is what the thinking is with these men and women participating in these pseudo-ordinations. There is a desire to have it 'my way' and not follow the Church. There is always the option of leaving if you find our teachings so difficult. Why get ordained in a ceremony you know will only cause trouble and have you standing there with egg on your face? And yes, I am sure causing trouble is very much on the mind of the people who are doing this, but if you truly believe you are called to serve, do so in a manner which actually helps. No true Catholic is going to come and celebrate Mass with you or have you listen to her confession. What is the point are you trying to make? You cannot be a woman and ordained in the Catholic church. A women priest is an oxymoron. It will not happen, should not happen, and what you think or want cannot change those facts.
