|OECTA formally denying an infallible teaching that belongs to the Deposit of the Faith.|
Women as priests? Yes, says Canada's largest Association of Catholic Teachers. The Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA) has for quite a few years formally supported the heretical proposition of the "ordination" of women as priests in the Catholic Church.
|OECTA proposing action to promote heresy|
Though Pope John Paul II reaffirmed Catholic doctrine that women cannot and never will be ordained to the sacramental priesthood, OECTA continues to promote the idea that women can be made, I should more accurately say, priestesses.
Before we review OECTA's two formal HERETICAL statements, we need to review what the Church teaches and why OECTA's position is HERESY.
In Ordinatio Sacerdotalis, Pope John Paul II wrote:
Wherefore, in order that all doubt may be removed regarding a matter of great importance, a matter which pertains to the Church's divine constitution itself, in virtue of my ministry of confirming the brethren (cf. Lk 22:32) I declare that the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be definitively held by all the Church's faithful.
Further, A Dubium and Responsum clarified that this belief belongs to the Deposit of the Faith.
We must now ask: how is it possible that 23 years after the formal declaration of the late sainted Pope, and the formal Responsum that this pertains to the Deposit of the Faith, as INFALLIBLE TEACHING, OECTA continues to promote Heresy?
How is it possible that numerous Handbooks contain the same Heresy?
How is it possible that Catholic teachers approve of Heresy?
How is it possible that Catholic Boards of Education remain silent?
How is it possible that the Ontario Catholic School Trustees Assocation is silent?
