Hi, I had a 2 questions on the issue of women being ordained as priests. 2 main responses I’ve heard are:
- Infallible teachings need universal consent by the bishops and the faithful. This is what happened with the Assumption of Mary; the pope asked many bishops and faithful if they would hold this belief. Ordinatio Sacerdotalis lacks this, therefore it is fallible. Do you have any idea where this objection originated?
- This is not an issue of faith or morals. Thus, it does not fulfill one of the requirements for infallible teaching.
