Two Different Worlds

Emerging in the media coverage surrounding the Synod against on the Family were several little "liberal" wish-list items being proposed by this or that cleric.  Fr. Rosica, the English language spokesman for the Vatican, stressed that persons stuck in a pattern of committing sodomy aren't to be pitied, and even went so far as to opine that polygamy might be a matter for local consideration-- part of the uberimperative to end "exclusionary language".

In light of that, the old hippie yearning for women deacon(esse)s proposed by a Canadian bishop is almost beneath notice.  And please don't post that there is precedent for this in the early Church, or that it doesn't involve ordination and thus wouldn't affect the teaching on Holy Orders.  It is what it is: always and everywhere a prelude to women's priestly "ordination".

The reason for this post is to highlight the chasm that exists between orthodox Catholics and modernists on this and all the issues coming to a head at the moment.  They demand "dialogue", but any dialogue is impossible.  Consider these two paragraphs from the above article at STLToday:

That’s because if the trial balloon floated by Quebec Archbishop Paul-Andre Durocher flies, it would represent a historic breakthrough for the Catholic Church, and Catholic women, by giving them access to the kinds of offices that only priests and bishops can hold.

“The only way a woman can fully ‘obtain’ many church offices is by ordination — by becoming a cleric — and the ordinary way to enter the clerical state is by ordination to the diaconate,” said Phyllis Zagano, a leading expert on women deacons and a researcher at Hofstra University in New York.

Holy Orders is a sacrament requiring particular form, matter and intention to be valid.  Only males can be ordained.  This is an infallible teaching of the Church based upon Our Lord's example. 

Moreover, this sacrament is one of service and sacrifice.  At least, that is the way a Catholic would see it.  But to modernists, it is one of power. Political power. 

And you can see this by the way the secular reporter wrote those paragraphs.

That is why it is so important for female modernists to have access to ordination; they want access to political power.  They want their share of telling everyone what to do.

Just like accommodating sodomy, or polygamy, or anything else that allows pride to reign over nature--  how do you dialogue with that?

You can't.  You can only remain faithful to the truth or reject it.
