Father Martin Fox of Piqua, Ohio, who blogs as Bonfire of the Vanities has a post today regarding some joint Lutheran "catholic" service whereby "priestesses" from an organization called "Roman Catholic Womenpriests" [sic] officiated at some blasphemous ceremony at Luther Seminary in St Paul. There was no indication whether or not the seminaries administration knew of the event.
It was described as "a beautiful celebration with inclusive language and a model of the discipleship of equals." Apparently there was no mention of Jesus. But there were some special attractions that more than made up for that omission: "During the homily, Dagmar invited us to stand and bless the people next to us. I heard the Holy Wind, Wisdom Sophia, move through that upper room as the voices of women whispered blessings upon each other. I'm getting chills just thinking about it."
Apparently, Roman Catholic Womenpriests will be ordaining another priestess and a deacon this Summer, probably in the middle of a river to be named at the last minute. [Read more if you can handle it!]
