Sacerdotisas, ¿por qué no?: Una guía para los catequistas

Authored by William Newton in Issue #32.4 of The Sower

En una época en que la igualdad y la no discriminación son consideradas por muchos como los más altos e incluso los únicos principios de moralidad, entre las verdades que hoy en día más les cuesta a muchos Católicos (o que podrían ser católicos) comprender, aceptar o justificar, es la reserva del sacerdocio únicamente para varones.

Mi objetivo aquí es dar una clara presentación de lo que la misma Iglesia dice acerca de este tema, con la esperanza de que será útil para aquellos que transmiten la fe de la Iglesia, en especial con aquellos que están involucrados en programas de catecumenado o de RICA, o similares, que se ocupan de personas que pueden muy probablemente influenciados por estos dos “dogmas” modernos de igualdad y no-discriminación. Consideraré sólo los argumentos que se encuentran dentro de los documentos del Magisterio, ya que con ellos viene una cierta seguridad de su validez.

About the same time, I received the results of a questionnaire on the resurrection presented to several hundred college students. Almost 90% agreed... Read more
From the Shepherds: Missionaries of Hope Today
By Pope Francis
Free The Christian is not a prophet of misfortune. …The essence of the Christian proclamation is the opposite, the opposite of misfortune: it is Jesus who died for love and whom God raised on Easter morning. And this is the nucleus of Christian faith. If the Gospels had ended at Jesus’ burial, the story of this prophet would have been added to the many... Read more
