On Female Clergy

Rom 16:7 Greet Andronicus and Junia, my relatives who were in prison with me; they are prominent among the apostles, and they were in Christ before I was.

If a woman can be a prominent apostle before Paul and, by Catholic tradition, was made one in a church founded by Peter himself, then women can be priests. The hierarchy hiding behind Jesus’ choice of 12 male apostles, one of whom saw fit for women in the apostalate, to justify patriarchy in our Church is sophistry at best. Full stop.
