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.

Long before Jesus Christ came into the world as the love of God made visible (cf. 1 Jn 4:9), the ancients were already convinced that friendship held a unique and irreplaceable position among the four loves. Aristotle, in fact, claimed that without friendship no... Read more
Greater Love Hath No Hobbit
By John Holmes
J.R.R. Tolkien’s monumental fantasy novels, The Hobbit (1937) and The Lord of the Rings (1954-55), have a great deal to teach about friendship. Many readers first encounter these works in adolescence, when our first encounters with friendship are forged—and, unfortunately, tested and maybe broken—by fallen humanity. But even if we first came to... Read more
