International News, News

According to Pope Francis, Catholic Church ban on women ever becoming priests will continue to hold, forever and ever. Returning to Vatican from his visit of Sweden, the Pope was asked whether there is any chance of overturning this 22 year old doctrine. Pope John Paul II had introduced the doctrine in 1994 that barred ordaining of women.

Answering to the question, Pope Francis said, “St Pope John Paul II had the last clear word on this and it stands, this stands.” The doctrine was introduced citing the fact that Jesus only chose men as his apostles. Protesters argue that it was due to the norm of those times and has bearing upon Jesus’s view of women. At the moment chances of women ever getting to become Catholic priests look very bleak.
