Excommunicated Priestesses Invited to the Vatican?

(Rome) last Friday to representatives of militant women's association Women's Ordination Worldwide (WOW) have been received in the Vatican. The organization calls for the introduction of women to the priesthood by the Catholic Church.
According to a WOW spokesman, the excommunicated Pole, Janice Secre-Duszynska, she had been received by a "senior official" of the Vatican Secretariat of State, together with other WOW "priestesses". They wished to leave a petition with which they begin a dialogue and the lifting of the excommunication against persons called by Pope Francis, who work for women priests in the Catholic Church.
Ambiguous wording of Pope Francis may have been conceived as "openness" to several controversial issues. But women priests are not part of his agenda. Pope John Paul II had uttered with the Apostolic Letter Ordinatio Sacerdotalis  in 1994, a definite no to women priests. His affirmation of the sacrament instituted by Christ is considered canonically a pronouncement ex cathedra. The dogmatic character leaves the question out of further discussion.
Last month, however, Francis announced towards the Superiors General of Catholic women religious that he wanted to form a commission to study the role and task of the early Christian deaconesses. The deaconesses of antiquity had no part in the sacrament of Orders, they were not ordained female deacons. Feminist and progressive Church circles have focused, since Ordinatio Sacerdotalis, increasingly on the "women's diaconate" on the grounds that John Paul II. may have indeed explicitly excluded women priests, but not  women deacons. Of this quibble the defender of the Sacraments spoke: There is only a sacrament of orders, which can not be split.  John Paul II had affirmed what the Church has always taught that the sacrament, no matter at what level, whether deacons, priests or bishops, is reserved for men.

WOW - Part of Radical Feminism

Women's Ordination Worldwide (WOW) is part of the radical feminism, which despite Ordinatio Sacerdotalis adheres to the demand for the female priesthood.The organization is therefore not considered as part of the Catholic Church. Their representatives are excommunicated, ie, excluded from the community of the Church.
Pope Francis celebrated from 1-3  June as part of the proclaimed by him Holy Year of Mercy, the "Jubilee for Priests". 6,000 priests from around the world gathered with the Church leader at the Vatican and conversed with them a retreat.


Radical feminism, rally in Rome in 1975

In parallel,  WOW organized an "anniversary of the priestesses", which occured in "International House of Women" in Trastevere, which would have been completely ignored had it not been for the anti-Church and supercritical activism safely assured it of knee-jerk media attention.
The "International House of Women" is a former monastery that was left vacant in 1987 became occupied by the Movimento femminista Romano   (Roman Feminist Movement). Since 1992 the establishment has been financed by  the Roman city left-governments and other left-governed institutions. Developed in the late 60s, the radical feminist movement demanded and promotes the killing of unborn children and homosexuality.

Consecration Simulations: "priestesses" in St. Peter's Square

Last Friday, some women gathered in front of Castel Sant'Angelo, who claim to have been ordained to as "priestesses". Since women have no part in the sacrament of Holy Orders, they are mere consecration simulations without any validity. From Castel Sant'Angelo, the small group moved to St. Peter's Square, where they initially had his picture taken with protest signs  against the backdrop of the St. Peter's Basilica. Then the women went into hiding in the crowd of faithful who streamed into Saint Peter's Square to participate in the Holy Mass on the anniversary of the priest.
"There are now 200 worldwide priestesses. The majority of them are located in the US," said Christina Moreira for AFP, who claims that she was ordained last year in La Coruña in Spain.
Although the "priestesses" of WOW do not believe that there will be priestesses in the Catholic Church in the foreseeable future, 'they applaud the change in climate  which took place in the Church where it now - as they say - is no longer, as formerly, forbidden is to address such an issue," said AFP.

"Priestesses" and promoters of women priesthood automatically excommunicated

The WOW is one of several groups that call for women's access to the sacrament of orders as deacons, priests and bishops. The requirement goes back to the Church 68 movement. The first organized group was formed in 1975. The organization Roman Catholic Women Priests (RCWP) organized the consecration in 2002 of an ordination simulation of several women by an "independent bishop" whose apostolic succession is as vertiginous as the entire staging of the consecration.
In 2007  the Roman Congregation ruled, with the approval of Pope Benedict XVI., that all are  excommunicated, who attempt to procure the sacrement for a woman, and every woman is excommunicated for attempting to acquire the sacrament. Thus the excommunication applies latae sententiae for comparable organizations like WOW.
The emergence of WOW led to the excommunicated Austrian Christine Mayr-Lumetzberger, a former Benedictine. WOW was founded in 1996 in the "First European Women's Synod" in Gmunden, Upper Austria. The aim of the "ecumenical" organization is the implementation of "women's ordination" in the Catholic Church.
The imitation of the priesthood, the speech is also of mimicry, imitating the followed "Jubilee of Priests". In July WOW wants to take part in  World Youth Day in Krakow itself.

Networking among non-Church and within the church circles

If organizations like RCWP, WOC and WOW are outside the Catholic Church, the transition to the left wing of the Church is not exactly defined. The thinking of these organizations extends into Church circles in no small measure. Proof of this is panel discussion event organized on June 1st  at the "Casa Internazionale delle Donne" for the  20th anniversary of WOW.
Participants were: Tony Flannery, an IRISH redemptorist  suspended from the priesthood, who was condemned by the Vatican for disseminating heresies (abortion, homosexuality, women priests); Dana English, pastor of the Anglican Church in Rome; Jamie Manson, a columnist for the progressive US magazine National Catholic Reporter and Marinella Perroni,  professor of New Testament at the Pontifical Athenaeum of Saint Anselm, the Benedictine University in Rome.


Marinella Perroni, gender theologian at Benedictine University Sant-Anselmo

Marinella Perroni, because of her teaching position at a papal university and other ecclesiastical projects, the only real "Church member" in this round, is convinced feminist and gender theologian. Perroni raves for the "pluralistic world" and for representatives of Marxist liberation theology. She sees gender as the "interpretive key for the historical analysis". Perroni found no words of praise for Benedict XVI.   He had been guilty in her eyes of having "worked forcefully against gender theory" and "designated homosexuals as enemies of peace."  Perroni is a member of the governing body of the abortion favorable Fraueninitiative SNOQ. This woman initiative originated in 2011 in the orbit of the political left against the then Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, whom they accused of "sexism."  SNOQ claimed the killing of unborn children as "women's rights". For the gender Theologian Perroni this was obviously no problem.
In June 2014 was Perroni was speaker at a meeting of the Grand Orient of Italy 's "The Secret Council - Second Vatican and Freemasonry". Perroni belongs to the intellectual milieu of those to whom the faithful and vocation-strong Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate were delivered, who were placed, just like the male religious branch  under the provisional control of the Congregation of Religious.

"Pope Francis is a Reformer Like Martin Luther" -- Margo Käßmann in "Osservatore Romano"

Edit: Käßmann is the first female Lutheran Bishop who was arrested for drunk driving in 2010, yet never the less, appears frequently to promote gender ideology, contraception and heresy at events staged in the fabulously wealthy German Catholic Tax-Church.   
(Rome) German Catholic media started ​​it, the Osservatore Romano now follows, and is "celebrating" the commemoration of the Protestant Reformation with pleasantries. On May 7, the daily newspaper of the Pope published the article "A Year to Celebrate the Reformation". From October 31 2016 to the October 31, 2017 "the German Evangelical Church has" a calendar full of events.
"The 500-year celebration of the Protestant Reformation will last exactly one year, which is traditionally associated with the publication of the Disputatio per declaratione virtutis Indulgentiarum which was in conjunction with the 95 theses, which Martin Luther nailed at the door of the episcopal church of Wittenberg in Saxony-Anhalt on 31 October 1517," said Osservatore Romano .
The kickoff  on October 31, 2016 will be a "great ceremony in the Marienkirche of Berlin". In May 2017 the "World Exhibition" in Wittenberg will take place, where "the products derived from the Reformation in the various countries and churches,  but also the fruits of culture and civil society," will be showcased.
The Kirchentag will be held from May 24-28.  A Kirchentag "in motion", which will be held in eight German cities, and then all will merge in Wittenberg for its completion.
"The German Evangelical Church has been preparing for this anniversary beginning in 2008 with a way of contemplating and to set up a network between 69 cities of the Reformation in Germany and in Europe, important places for the history and the presence of Protestantism. The conclusion of the festivities will take place at the national and international level on 31 October 2017 with a number of public events. The calendar of the ecumenical events is rich," said the Vatican daily.

Ecumenism is "in a very good state, thanks to Pope Francis"

"We can 2017 make a critical revision daring to see the reformation on an international and ecumenical horizon as a complex factor," said the "theologian and Lutheran Bishop Margot Käßmann, Ambassador of  Luther Year" recently held at a Catholic-Lutheran Reformation Conference at Pontifical Athenaeum Sant'Anselmo in Rome.
Käßmann said this about Ecumenism in an interview with Vatican Insider:
"We are in a very good stage because ecumenism on the one hand is a discussion about what the Church, the Eucharist, baptism, officials, means, but then also acting as Christians in the world, and since we are currently [the Catholic Church] very close, thanks to Pope Francis, a reformer in his Church, as Martin Luther a reformer was in his."
For Käßmann, said Osservatore Romano, it was "a good opportunity" to ask, "what we can find in his other church, which we did not." As a specific example she cited: "What I really admire about the Roman Catholic Church is that it preserves the global unity of the Church, despite the many internal differences."

Holy Father: No Opposition Between Tradition and Progress in the Liturgy

Editor: Pope Benedict is addressing one of the chief sources of Liturgical abuses in the Church today, the Benedictines of Sant'Anselmo. He seems to make a backhand swipe at Dom Beauduin, perhaps. New Liturgical Movement got an Italian translation which describes Benedict's critique in terms of going "beyond" the Council. [About which Rorate Caeli was more circumspect, and Vatican Radio didn't touch on any of this at all.]Basically, this is more reform of the reform talk to Old Liberals who will do their best to ignore the Holy Father's admonitions and prescriptions. That doesn't appear in the following essay by theologian Armin Schibach, but there it is:

'sana traditio' and 'legitima progressio': The program of reform of the Council Fathers. Back in the future on the way to "Sacrosanctum Concilium'. The river of Tradition. by Armin Schibbach

Rome (kath.net/as) In the area of Liturgy, Tradition and progress are not put together in "an "awkward manner" one against the other. Actually, both enrich each other: Tradition contains in itself the principle of development and is always a living reality: "The river of Tradition always flows from its source as it strives toward its mouth". With these words Pope Benedict addressed today's Friday lecture, taking part in the event, organized for the the Papal Liturgical Institute 'Sant'Anselmo', on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of its founding.

Benedict XVI next addressed the reason for the memorial, which lead to the founding of the Liturgical Institute. In this, it was the wish of Pope John XXIII to take up the Liturgical Movement [Editor: Its Revolutionary character, founded primarily in illicit and therefore sinful liturgical abuses don't get mentioned in talks like this.], whose aim was to give a new impetus to the prayer of the Church, shortly before the Vatican Council, by forming the Liturgical Institute at the Benedictine University at the Aventine. The Pope was to have a firm basis for the Liturgical Reform of the Council in this way.

On the eve of the Council, continued Benedict XVI, the need for the reform of the Liturgy made itself ever more certain. The pastoral necessity, which the Liturgical Movement ensouled, made it requisite that the active participation of the faithful in the Liturgical Celebration would be encouraged by the use of the vernacular and that the adaptation of the rites deepening the various cultures.

Similarly, there has been a necessity present from the beginning, to study the depths of the Liturgical foundation, "in order to avoid falling into Ritualism or to validate the subjectivism and protagonism of the celebrant." The reform should find itself centered in the area of the offering of the divine Sacrifice and its justification in the Tradition of the Church.

Proceeding with the theme of the Congress (The Papal Liturgical Institute between Commemoration and Prophesy") the Pope stressed that the reason for the institute is "Commemoration". The Institute has accomplished its task toward the reception of the IInd Vatican Council. For that reason it has become possible to help the holy people of God, "to live the liturgy as an expression of a praying people, as Christ's presence in the midst of the people and as constitute an actuality of salvation history".

The Constitution of the Holy Liturgy "Sacrosanctum Concilium" poses the twofold theological and ecclesiological character of the Liturgy: "The celebration simultaneously makes real an Epiphany of the Lord and an Epiphany of the Church, two dimensions, which is bound to the reality the Liturgical assembly". In the Liturgy of the Church "gives the active presence of Christ: What he brought into fruition during His stay among the people, whose focus formed in the Eucharist is made real."

The Liturgy of the Church "goes out from the 'Conciliar Reform'", says Benedict XVI. Its goal is not, above all, to change the rites and texts, but it is much more to renew the mentality and put the Christian life and the pastoral care of the celebration of the Pascal Mystery of Christ at its center.

"Unfortunately the Liturgy would-- even among us shepherds and experts -- be seen as an object, that it was necessary to reform, and not as a Subject, that is capable of renewing the Christian life, where there was a very narrow band between the renewal of the Liturgy and the renewal of the whole life of the Church: the Church draws its power to live from the Liturgy." In that point, he recalled Pope John Paul in his Apostolic writing "Vinesimus quintus annus" (4. Dezember 1988)on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Constitution of "Sancrosanctum Concilium".


The Liturgy is "the highpoint, to which the action of the Church reaches and is the source from which all of her virtues proceed", said Benedict XVI. So She becomes the great tutor of the primacy of the Faith and of Grace. The Liturgy is the "privileged witness of the living Tradition of the Church", in truth Her fundamental mission, in the "Today" of human affairs the "opus Redemptionis" between the apparent and the existent. For that reason the Liturgy lives "of a correct and standing relation between 'sana traditio' and 'legitima progressio'" (compare. Sancrosanctum Concilium, Nr. 23).

With these two concepts the Council Fathers desired to lay out their "program of reform", "to put the same weight on the great liturgical Tradition of the past with that of the future".
