Most women ministers in the U. These gifts should be celebrated and utilized, just as was done in the early church. I have utilized great restraint in not even mentioning the call to orders by very competent and courageous women serving the Church right now.
I am very concerned about the priest shortage and its effect on our sacramental and communal life as a church. This should be a formal and well-written letter.
This is not just. Please sign your letters with your signature in pen, followed by your typewritten name. Moreover, seeing how overburdened our priests are will only discourage potential candidates for the priesthood.
I am deeply concerned about the morale and health of our current priests, who are working beyond human capacity. Adapted from a letter recently sent to a Bishop in Green Bay Wisconsin.
How can we remain a sacramental Church if the Mass is not readily available for all Catholics, now and in the future?
