I was directed to your old blog site by a twitter friend: https://twitter.com/#!/MyFeminineMind, April.
She, and some other Catholic Twitter moms, and I were discussing the role of moms/women in the church and I had shared a blog post I had written, which I refer to here in this comment. She thought I might find your old blog site with its Holy Priesthood post interesting. I did, and I am leaving you the comment I tried to to leave there, here:
Father thank you for your wonderful and balanced post. Many of the things you said I found helpful in furthering my understanding of the role of man and woman, but it did nothing to explain why God would give me this deep desire to be a priest and yet not allow me to express it. https://pattyperkowski.com/2012/05/31/when-i-was-younger-i-would-play-priest/. Like Anonymous, had said, (referring to the comment he/she made on your old site), I believe there is a voice that is not being heard: the one of women. I have worked as Director of Project Rachel her in my diocese of Lansing, and the Church seems to only care for women/mothers when they are in crisis: miscarriages with Elizabeth ministry, or post abortive with Project Rachel/Rachel Vineyard. Women/mothers need more!
Many of the mothers I journey with as a spiritual director are angry that there is not MOPS for Catholic Moms!
I know many wonderful priests who don’t have a clue on how to deal with moms/women!
Our voice is muddied Father you must know that. Our voice is often silenced because we bring up uncomfortable issues.
I do not want to be silent anymore! I love my Church, my faith, but I hate being a second class citizen!
