Opnieuw praten over wijding van vrouwen?

Een internationaal netwerk voor wijding van vrouwen voerde een brievenactie om dit onderwerp opnieuw op de agenda te krijgen. In mei 2014 was namelijk het 20 jaar geleden dat de brief Ordinatio Sacerdotalis verscheen van JPII, waarin hij de deur sloot voor het wijden van vrouwen.

Het Vaticaan nam meer dan 700 brieven in ontvangst.

2014 WOW actie

{slide=1. de oproep}

May 22, 2014 will mark the twentieth anniversary of John Paul II's Apostolic Letter Ordinatio Sacerdotalis in which he attempted to officially ban discussion about the ordination of women.

In a now infamous July 28, 2013 interview with reporters at the end of World Youth Day, Pope Francis referenced this document when he said, “On the ordination of women, the church has spoken and said no. John Paul II, in a definitive formulation said that door is closed.”
Take Action

In preparation for the twentieth anniversary of Ordinatio Sacerdotalis, Women’s Ordination Worldwide is collecting letters from the faithful who:

  • support dialogue about women's ordination in the Catholic Church
  • support the opening of doors to the ordination of women;
  • and who recognize that women, like men, are not only created in God's image but are also called to serve all God’s people in all ways, including holy orders.

A delegation of women’s ordination advocates from around the world will, during prayerful vigil hand deliver these letters to the Vatican -- letters from women who are called to priesthood and from all those who stand up for justice in the church.
