There are two reasons why Catholics greatly profit from studying the movement towards the ordination of women in other Christian Churches:

  1. By studying the heart searching, discussion, prayer and struggle experienced by brothers and sisters who share our Christian faith, we can discern the Holy Spirit at work.
  2. The arguments for or against the ordination of women discussed in the other Churches are closely parallel to those that now occupy the minds and hearts of Catholics.

We are gradually publishing the classic texts on our website. We welcome suggestions and advice in this matter from anyone who can help us.
