Why would we women think we were better than others?
Seriously, Pope – is that truly your reasoning?
The Anglican church (of which I am a member) has as many, if not more women priests as men. In my own diocese, of 37 trainee priests and Readers (licensed ministers) currently undergoing training, all but 4 are women.
Since our first woman bishop was appointed 2015, they’ve been rising through the ranks hand over fist. One of our two diocesan bishops is a woman – she’s great!
If the Pope’s worried about arrogance – look to the nature of individual, not the sex of the appointee.
