The Church's position on this is to maintain tradition as set forth by Jesus. The church He estiblished was run by male priests, with woman having other roles to play.
thanks. I really had no idea. Pretty sure they wouldn't want me anyway
What people seem to forget is that Mary Magdalene was probably one of the closest people to Jesus on earth. The Church many, many years ago decided that a woman could not be Jesus' confidante and so decided that she should be a whore that Jesus saves.
As one who grew up in the mid-50s Church, a lot of things have changed. I know a number of Nuns who are wonderful people and serve in various ministries, I would certainly have no problem with them, or other women, becoming priests. They would have to be Diocesan, as the Orders would probably not change their Rule.
