God's Daughters: Knocking on Vatican's Door


There is a renewed interest for the role of women in the Catholic Church.  God's Daughters presents an intimate portrait of two ordained Roman Catholic women priests.  They are part of an international movement of validly ordained women who seek to serve all people, but especially those who feel marginalized by the insitution.

I just watched the video and find it realistic and convincing.

How Does the Holy Spirit Assist the Church in Its Teaching?


Lecture by Richard Gaillardetz | January 31, 2014

According to St. Irenaeus of Lyons, the bishops are given at their ordination a charisma veritatis certum, “a sure charism of truth.” At Vatican II this was affirmed in the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, Dei Verbum 8. In the council’s Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Lumen gentium 25 the council taught that the bishops teach “in the light of the Holy Spirit.” Yet this teaching raises a number of important questions: how exactly does the Holy Spirit assist the bishops in their teaching? Does this assistance preclude the possibility of error? How does the Spirit’s assistance to the bishops in their teaching correspond to the assistance of the Spirit given to all believers by virtue of their Spirit-given sense of the faith (sensus fidei)?

Theresa Kane - Nun Who Confronted the Pope

In 1979, Sister Theresa Kane was serving as President of the US Leadership of the Women Religious when she was invited to publicly address Pope John Paul II during his visit to the National Shrine in Washington DC. She came before the Pope and the packed pews and said quietly: “We have heard the powerful message of our church addressing the dignity and reverence of all persons. As women, we have pondered these words." The Church, "must respond by providing the possibility of women as persons being included in all ministries.” While the Pontiff himself did not immediately respond, Sister Theresa’s words were broadcast and televised around the world. They continue to reverberate today. She says her plea was “a surprise” to the public, “but not to professional theologians or those in the sisterhood…we were looking at the role of women in the church and society and I was quite imbued in that culture.”

Audio:  The push for female priests in the Catholic Church - Debate   CBC Radio -  October 1, 2012 

Therese Koturbash's day job is fighting it out in court with legal aid in Dauphin, Manitoba. But she's picked a fight far more rough and tumble than she's likely to experience in court. She's part of a worldwide movement pushing for the ordination of women in the Catholic Church.

And she's just returned from Germany and the annual meeting of Women's Ordination Worldwide. The Church not only opposes the ordination of women, it considers the issue closed. But that has not deterred Therese Koturbash, who joined us this morning from Winnipeg.

Fiona O'Reilly is with Catholic Voices. It's a group based in the UK, whose members, while not speaking on behalf of Church officials, try to represent the view of the Catholic Church to the greater public. Fiona O'Reilly is in our London studio.

This segment was produced by The Current's Ellen Saenger.
