AMY MARTIN’S ANSWER TO THE SHORTAGE OF PRIESTS IN THE AMAZON IS TO SEND IRISH PRIESTS THERE FOR FIVE YEAR STINTS!
Has Amy forgotten that all over Ireland now there is a shortage of priests with parishes closing and amalgamating?
People everywhere are warning that with no priests there will be no Mass – and therefore there will be what many are calling a “EUCHARISTIC FAMINE”.
There are really only two solutions to these problems:
1. Let priests marry.
2. Ordain women.
The ones Jesus Himself called into ministry were MARRIED MEN.
For the first 1200 of the church priests married!
There is really no Biblical or Traditional precedent for not ordaining married men
The fact that Benedict has allowed all these married ANGLICAN VICARS to be ordained hammers the nail home.
One of the main duties of the priest is to preach the RISEN CHRIST.
The first witness and announcer of the Risen Christ was a……….WOMAN. That’s right!
The Apostles did not know Jesus had risen until a WOMAN told them!
Another main duty of the priests is to sacramentally give the Body and Blood of Christ to the world.
Who was the first person to bring the Body and Blood of Christ into the world?
It was another…………WOMAN!
Mary, the mother of Jesus physically and literally gave the world the Body and Blood of Christ.
She could do it literally – but the past and current clerical misogynists say she cannot do it SACRAMENTALLY!
Woman’s Body – Francis Croak
Did the woman say,
When she held him for the first time in the dark of a stable,
After the pain and the bleeding and the crying
‘This my body, this is my blood’?
Did the woman say,
When she held him for the last time in the dark rain on a hilltop,
After the pain and the bleeding and the dying,
‘This is my body, this is my blood’?
Well that she said it to him then,
For dry old men,
Brocaded robes belying barrenness,
ordain that she not say it to him now.
