Only men can be ordained in Catholic Church

The lead article on the Faith & Values page of The Gazette on Aug. 8 described the path of Eda Lorello being ordained a priest. The group known as Roman Catholic Womenpriests does claim to ordain women as priests, but in doing so separate themselves from the Roman Catholic Church. With regard to women being ordained as priests, early on in his papacy and consistent with settled Roman Catholic doctrine, Pope Francis clearly stated: "The church has spoken and says no... That door is closed." While Lorello may be a loving and caring person, as far as the Roman Catholic Church is concerned, her ordination has no validity.
