Due to various scheduling issues, especially spring break for the college students, this week we will be shifting gears from talking about faith & science, and we will talk about the priesthood. On the balloting, I listed two different topics; the priesthood, and “married/women priests.” This week I will combine both into the one session.
Here are the readings for this week, you will note that I have listed the paragraph numbers in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The reason for only listing them instead of adding them here has to do with the formatting and citations. Frankly, it would take me quite a bit of time. So if you have a hard copy of the Catechism you can crack it open, or you can go to this link on the Vatican web site.
The readings this week come from:
- The Council of Nicaea I (325)
- Catechism of the Catholic Church (1992)
- Ordinatio Sacerdotalis (1994)
- Homily of Pope Francis (2013)
