Some Good News from The Carmelite

She has had a real rough time but a little bit of good news has turned up:

Join me in giving thanks and praise to God Most High! today I was accepted into Graduate School at St. John’s Seminary in Brighton, MA! I will be working on my Master’s in Pastoral Ministry for Laity….

More than ever I need your support — with prayers and with anything you can donate toward my tuition…the college told me to leave it all in God’s hands…

I can tell you there is absolutely no comparison between my situation and hers and anything you can do to give her a hand either via cash or via prayer would be a blessing.

Blogchild of mine the Carmelite has gotten a piece published at the Worcester Telegram & Gazette on the subject of Women priests in the Catholic Church:

As I said, in order to confect the Eucharist, the priest must be validly ordained — not “done in secret” by bishops who “secretly support their cause.” All sacraments are gifts of God to the Church and therefore cannot be performed in secret. The great exception to this is in areas where there is grave danger of persecution of the Church in some countries.

Thus, the ordination of women as priests is indeed a grave matter against the sacrament of ordination and the other sacraments as well because priests administer all. God becomes incarnate in today’s world through two means: the birth of a new child (see Genesis 1:26) and through the Holy Eucharist.

You should of course read the whole thing, and as she is looking for sponsorship for her trip to the canonization of Br. Andre Bessette, feel free to give her a hand.
