Why women cannot be priests

This is not difficult, unless one has lost sight of Jesus..

Let’s see:

The image of God as we read back in Genesis is male/female/marriage/family. The image of God imprinted upon human nature was destroyed with sin. Fallen humanity has ever since rebelled against the image of God, assassinating the image of God by same-sex sex: a denial of male/female, a denial of marriage, a denial of family, a blasphemous attack on God.

Redemption is, in justice, wrought, ever so fittingly, by a marriage of God with His Immaculate Bride, the Church, God Incarnate suffering the punishment for sin, death, the Innocent standing in the place of the guilty, so that He has the right in His own justice to have mercy on us, providing that we are once again the image of God, and even more, as members of the Body of Christ, Jesus the Head of the Body, we the members of that Body.

The marriage banquet of the Lamb of God who takest away the sins of the world is the Last Supper, which we call the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The wedding vows are the total self giving of Jesus at the consecrations: This is my body given for you in sacrifice, my blood poured out for you in sacrifice. It’s the fulfillment of all righteousness, of justice, that makes the mercy of the provision of the image of God to us once again possible.

What a terrible mockery of Jesus’ Wedding it would be to have a woman “priest” attack the image of God in marriage by taking the place of the Bridegroom, of Jesus, at the Last Supper, at Holy Mass. That would be a lesbian image. No.

Back in the day, most “priests” in the pagan cults, sacrificing children, were women. Men set that up, of course, protecting that mockery of God. That’s what fallen human nature does. Jesus didn’t do that. Jesus redeemed us the right way, with such majesty, laying down His own life for us to do this.

How terrible that the whole world is now sexualizing children, sacrificing children. How terrible that the whole world is promoting same-sex “marriage.” How terrible that it is the leaders of the church which promote this activity either actively, or by “benign” neglect. A reprimand given but with no penalty is, in the end, active promotion of that sin, that blasphemy, that mockery of God.

And so many souls run to take the scandal into their souls. And that risks the eternal damnation of so many.

Pray for good, strong, holy vocations to the priesthood, for strong men. Ask Immaculate Mary for her intercession. Hail Mary

    This is what we need Father – concise instruction with reason – not “dialogue”. I pray for the priests, all priests we have now must be under a terrible burden of the world, and hope, they, like you, remember what it is to be a holy priest forever.
    (and in the back of my mind, I’m reminding myself to Buckle up, coming soon, volcano day in Pompeii 😐 )

    In reality (wherever that has gone), there should be no need for explanation. The priest is alter Christus. Christ walked among us as male. The priest of necessity must be male. Like the children of Hamlin town, we are dancing behind a pied piper leading us to destruction. Pray God we may wake up before we are lost forever.

    While it is still December 8th in your part of the world, may I wish all here the joy that comes with celebrating the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.
