“Pink Smoke Over The Vatican is a new documentary that delves into the controversial and growing movement of women seeking to be ordained as Roman Catholic priests. The film explores their internal struggles as they challenge the church they love as well as the external battles with the Church hierarchy, centuries-old tradition, the police, and rampant prejudice. To date, nearly 100 women have been ordained or are training to be ordained as priests in the Roman Catholic Church.”
Father Ron ~ A Change of Heart?
Fr Ronald Lengwin, a spokesman for the Pittsburgh Catholic Diocese, was the only Roman Catholic official willing to go on camera for the movie, “Pink Smoke” …perhaps caught unaware by the questions lobbed over the net – he bumbled – he fumbled – he kept looking the toy Vatican on his desktop for inspirations. Audiences everywhere laugh out loud at his futile efforts to decipher the Logic of Rome and their enormous disregard for Women.Pray for Father Ron
In 3 Countries, Challenging the Vatican on Female Priests
More than 150 Roman Catholic priests in the United States have signed a statement in support of a fellow cleric who faces dismissal for participating in a ceremony that purported to ordain a woman as a priest, in defiance of church teaching.
The American priests’ action follows closely on the heels of a “Call to Disobedience” issued in Austria last month by more than 300 priests and deacons. They stunned their bishops with a seven-point pledge that includes actively promoting priesthood for women and married men, and reciting a public prayer for “church reform” in every Mass.
