Jamie is in pain, the pain felt by so many victims of injustice.
She is in even more pain because of Francis saying that women can’t be ordained! She writes:
As a woman who has discerned a calling to the priesthood for more than 20 years, Francis’ hiding behind John Paul II’s theology and claiming that the “door is closed” on the ordination issue was profoundly painful. Hearing these words, I felt the same kind of humiliation I would have experienced if a door had literally been slammed in my face.Jamie Jamie Jamie… you think you’ve known pain?
What about my pain?
I was thrown out of seminary twice…
… before I was ordained by the author of Ordinatio sacerdotalis. - Fr. Z
Fr. Z knows the really dark side of "nice".
People should give him a break. I know who some of the people are who had a hand in his 'exile'. Many have no idea how mean 'nice' religious people can be. Talk about abuse.
