Francis is "very much in favour of the female diaconate," secularised Salesian Sister Linda Pocher told the anti-Catholic ReligionDigital.org (9 February).
The Vatican is currently trying to understand how the [invalid] diaconate of women could be put into practice, she said.
According to her, Francis wants to rethink and reorganise (sic) the relationship between the sacramental priesthood and the priesthood of all the faithful [which are essentially different], extending to all the baptised some "rights" that until recently were reserved for the clergy.
The use of the word "rights" reveals Francis' legalistic and neo-Marxist understanding of the sacrament of Holy Orders.
So far Francis has only toyed with the concept of deaconesses. But unlike his weakness for homosexual sin, he has taken no concrete steps and even warned against a "clericalisation" of the faithful.
However, it can be ruled out that Sister Pocher made her statements without Francis' approval. Only on 5 February, she …More

Sister Linda Pocher reports that Pope Francis is “very much in favor of the diaconate for women,” and is now trying to determine how the practical roles that female deacons could fill in the Church.

I don't think Pope Francis will try to ordain women priests but like his gay blessing they will innovate and use subtle sophistry to allow for some new non-ordained category for deaconesses who will wear some type of pseudo clerical garb that will look like an ordained minister. The idiocy of this will be that the Catholic Church already has deaconesses; they are called nuns and that's the role …More

I greatly suspect that there will be no Priestly Ordination of women during his reign. That much at least, Pope Francis has made clear, thank God. He'll permit the Deaconess monstrosity perhaps (whatever that is or turns out to be), but not the lady priestess monstrosity. God be praised, we will in all likelihood, be spared the blasphemous horror of that particular mummer’s parody. With this …More

Being as he said this recently Pope Francis on women deacons: ‘Holy orders is reserved for men’ one can only wonder if he is suffering from some kind of schizoaffective disorder or going the same way as his pal Joe Biden. P.S. Just as an asides, he looks really ill in this photo.
