Women in the Priesthood sign now

Dear Pope John Paul II,

The Roman Catholic Church is in a time of crisis. Cases of child abuse in the hands of priests are on the rise, the number of men joining the religious community is in decline, and once faithful followers are beginning to turn away from the Church. Catholicism is in need of a great reform in order to thrive and progress through this new millennium. It is necessary to return to our rootsto the origins of Christianity.

Catholicism, in its truest form, is meant to spread love and Gods truth to His children. Agents are needed to evangelize the word of God as Christs apostles did over 2000 years ago. Christs message was spread by his devoted followers like Peter, Mary Magdalene, James, and Matthew.

As time progressed, and the basis of Catholicism slowly blended with the beliefs of the patriarchal society it was surrounded by, it lost some of its original traits. One of the Churchs most unfortunate losses was its view towards women. Although, in the early church, women were great teachers of Christianity, and were priests working alongside men, over time their importance dwindled. Women started to be treated as spiritually inferior to men. This misogynistic stance on women in the Church should be eradicated, and we must allow our Christian sisters to play a greater role in the Church.

Women are not spiritually or intellectually inferior to men, and in fact, it has been statistically validated that more women attend church than men and partake in daily prayer. While they are certainly not incapable of being priests, and many are willing to join the priesthood, the Church continues to refuse equality to all. As Catholics, we should be fair and not allow our pride to cloud what is best for our church. As a Christian and as a follower of the Church, we request that women be allowed to enter the priesthood.
