  • In his letter Ordinatio Sacerdotalis, Pope John Paul II stated: "Wherefore, in order that all doubt may be removed regarding a matter of great importance, . . .I declare that the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be definitively held by all the Churchs faithful." With that declaration, the question of womens priestly ordination in the Catholic Church was effectively closed. While the Churchs position is clear, many priests, religious, seminarians, and lay ministers search for a way to answer questions regarding the Churchs teaching. In The Catholic Priesthood and Women: A Guide to the Teaching of the Church, Sister Sara Butler attempts to answer those questions through a close examination of the Churchs teaching on the ordination of women to the priesthood. In response to a call for a greater articulation of the Churchs position, Sister Butler seeks to both clarify and defend the Churchs teaching as well as explore why so many have struggled to accept it. The Catholic Priesthood and Women: A Guide to the Teaching of the Church successfully explores the complex and fundamental questions surrounding the ordination of women to the priesthood for anyone interested in a deep examination of this issue.
