Liturgical Abuse By Womenpriests

The recent Womenpriests issue by a "Catholic" magazine and the pending announcement of the formal excommunication of two Saint Louis area Womenpriests has prompted me to document my recent observations and interpretation of events.

First, the Womenpriests might could have been taken seriously and would have had a stronger case had they been more faithful to the Mass. Unfortunately, the Womenpriests have not limited their disobediance to the Church to just women's ordination but to grave liturgical abuse:

- Confecting rice cakes for communion.
- Confecting grape juice for communion.
- Use of glass vessels for the "Eucharist".
- Consecrating wine in a carafe for later pouring.

If at some future date the Catholic Church should determine that it does have the authority to ordain women, Catholics would still expect any Womanpriest to follow the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM) and confect a valid Eucharist. These first priestesses have poisoned the Eucharistic well, either intentionally or accidentally.

Second, the replies of the two Saint Louis area Womenpriests don't bode well for the long term health of the womenpriest movement. Their statements regarding disassembling the ecclesiastical structure and authority of the church would turn their "churches" into Protestant-styled churches. The lack of centralized authority and ecclesiastical structure has led to the fracturing and babel of doctrines and beliefs in the Protestant world. Have these ladies studied no church history? Have they not read of the Reformation?

The one thing I find intersesting is the return of young Catholics to the traditional Latin Mass. It's quite possible that, at a future date, a formal Latin liturgy may become the primary indicator of a valid Catholic Mass. How would Catholics know that they are where they are supposed to be? A male priest in ornate vestaments with his back to you just said "Oramus".

I agree that the "womanpriest" problem goes beyond the fact that these are woman "priests."

I disagree that they have poisoned the "Eucharistic well.” Their "communion" isn't the Eucharist at all.

They are just play-priestesses acting out a theatre production of mass. Since it isn't even remotely the real body and blood of Christ they aren't doing any damage to the body and blood of Christ.

They are just a new breed of Protestant.

I recently read a "missal" from a womanpriest mass. Among the abuses they listed they invited anybody to the table...whether they profess Christ or not! They also changed the "Our Father" to make it more "inclusive" and "gender neutral."
