Lord Have Mercy… Five Women To Be “Ordained” In Rochester

February 3rd, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

According to Ray Grosswirth, married priest from Rochester, New York and member of Spiritus Christi, five women will be invalidly ordained at Spiritus Christi on May 1st of this year. It was already widely reported about Chava Redonnet’s ordination to the fake priesthood, but apparently there will also be four other ordinations at this event. Anyways, here is the announcement, emphasis added:

“Did you know that two women from Spiritus Christi are preparing to be ordained? On Saturday, May 1, Chava Redonnet will be ordained a priest (and will serve St Joseph?s House of Hospitality [see Cleansing Fire post]), and Patti LaRosa [see DoR Catholic post] will be ordained a deacon. We will host the ordinations for Chava & Patti as well as for three other women, Theresa Novak Chabot of New Hampshire, Ann Penick of Philadelphia and Caryl Johnson of Baltimore. The presiding bishops are from the Roman Catholic Women Priests, an organization that has ordained 9 bishops and over 50 priests since 2002. I?m happy we can share Spiritus Christi with them! If you would like to be part of this extraordinary liturgy, there will be lots of ways that you can participate: singers, musicians, liturgical dancers (of all ages, genders, shapes and sizes) and greeters; people to help with food ? sandwiches, salads and desserts ? people to help with setting up and cleaning up, and to provide housing and transportation. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Caryl Marchand”

This is all happening in the diocese of a bishop who said: “In some ways it?s much easier to simply ?follow the rules.? There won?t be many questions. But what do we risk in living that way?”

I think the answer is obvious.

    Dr. K.,

    A couple of years back I put up a post regarding one of the priestess-ordinands-to-be (it's difficult to find the right term here), Patricia LaRosa.

    At the time I thought she was heading for the Episcopal Church but it now looks like she changed direction.

    This might be too nasty a comment but here goes:
    It's cute (and promising) when young boys play priest; when adult women (and men for that matter) play priest you have to worry about their mental health.

    Funny how we were reviewing Timothy chapter 2 last night at Bible study which specifically outlines the church.
    "they could not teach or have authority over a man" (1 Tim. 2:11?14)

    For anyone reading this blog that isn't Catholic or has a wavering opinion on the Church's stance on this, I would suggest you read the following:

    and

    http://www.catholic.com/library/Women_and_the_Priesthood.asp

    For all those who are fully aligned with the church on this issue, I would recommend reading the heretical opposite viewpoints as well so that you can be informed on how to address those points should you be questioned on them.

    I tried to pick the site with the least amount of pictures of females in priest garb since it sorta makes my stomach turn a little.

    However, in order to argue something effectively I believe you need to be your own toughest critic and study the counter point before coming to the table to debate.

    Maybe the powere to be on this website can do that for us. Explain the arguments against women priests so we can stand up to these heretics.

    I have no sexist discrimation against women, but the priesthood is not in their ballpark, regardless of what they say. Women priests have themselves proven it. Observe Sr. Joan's role in putting a wedge between the Catholics of Rochester. Or the role of the first female bishop of the Episcipal Church. This "bishop" was when the Episcipal Church began its decent into a religon now Christainity in name only. Sure, not all women are like them, but I find it funny that when women gain church authority, splits occur. Maybe you shouldn't ordain women perhaps? Oh well, if people were faithful to Scripture and tradition, this whole mess could have been avoided.

    Isn't it the Bishop of Rochester's duty to speak out against this? I will continue to read the blogs about the DOR to see if he says anything at all. How long, Lord, how long? Oh, yeah….890 days.
