- there is a "crushing shortage of priests worldwide"
- women are involved in all sorts of ministry but because they can't be ordained "their hands are tied"
- there is a sacrament called absolution
- women are forbidden to administer the sacrament of the sick to a dying Catholic
I am sure this would all be news to Alice Von Hildebrand, Pia de Solenni, Peggy Noonan, Mother Angelica, Mary Ann Glendon, etc...
