Commission On Female Deacons Concluded Its Work

Pope Francis’ commission on female deacons finished its work in June, and Cardinal Ladaria personally handed the final report to Francis.

According to VidaNuevaDigital.com (December 17), the report contains only a few pages and was agreed on unanimously.

The Commission consisted of twelve theologians and started its work in August 2016. It did not have the task to answer the question whether there should be female deacons but to studied “this reality” in the first centuries of the Church.

One anonymous member of the commission told VidaNuevaDigital.com that there are "few historical witnesses and they did not give us the information we would have wished for."

In the first century "female deacons" were [obviously] not ordained ministers but some kind of charity workers.

Will there ever be female deacons (Deaconettes)? I personally believe it’s gonna happen... soon. There are 1000s of pushy nuns and like minded women who want it and eventually they’re going to get it. 🤬

The Orthodox Church has traditionally ordained female deacons. In order to facilitate unity, as JP-II sincerely wanted, both churches will need to adapt 'somewhat' to the other.

A more interesting question is what about female priests? 😲 Catholicism has the concept of “persona Christi” along with Ordinatio Sacerdotalis which makes the possibility of female priests impossible. Even Francis is against female priests. However, times change. If the all-male priesthood is based on the idea that women can't represent Jesus “persona Christi” then only a first-century Jew could come near to that. 🤨

Could there be scandals with female priests? You bet. From time to time I’d expect stories of Fr. Tony and Fr. Rosa being caught in the back seat of Fr. Tony’s 20 year old Fiat Cinquecento (I had one of these once) 🚬 However, that scandal (the weakness of human nature) doesn’t compare to the unnatural/criminal scandals that are currently plaguing the Catholic Church. 👌

If a female deacon looked like this lady, 👌
she could make me a sandwich anytime. 🤫

I hope you also wouldn't mind fetching her a sandwich, because I'm pretty sure this is what the whole fuss is about. ☕

nuchurch is not the Church. A cabal of sodomites are abusing the Mystical Body, revenge for Sodom and Gomorrah no doubt. When the Lord finally cleanses, it will be something to behold.

In FALSE church "everything floats" as Jewish communist major BAUMAN, big Francis pope advisor, said...relativism, relativism, relativism...

"Today's church no longer needs to be built on ROCK...just moving SAND..."
Let's PRAY for pope, cardinals, bishops, priests !
APOSTASY TIME came.
