Remember Cardinal Policarpo, the one who said just a bit ago that there is no theological obstacle to women’s ordination? Some of us wondered how long it would be before he “clarified” what he really meant. Not very long, it turns out.
He had never really thought about the question before, and he wasn’t aware of the magisterium’s statements on the question. Now he has, and is. On the impossibility of women’s ordination, he is in full communion with the Pope.
