WOMEN, THE VATICAN, AND HOPE FOR THE FUTURE: AN ECUMENICAL PROCESS

Clint Le Bruyns

Abstract


The prevailing position against women’s ordination to the ministerial priesthood in
the Roman Catholic Church presents itself as an ongoing ecumenical dilemma
within and beyond its ecclesial borders. This paper is critical of current attempts at
defending or opposing the Vatican ban for different reasons as these do not
contribute constructively to unlocking the deadlock. Instead, this paper recommends
that the Vatican engages in a strategic process with its dissenters and the broader
Christian communion as a point of departure towards a more promising way
forward.
