Irländsk präst ber om kvinnliga präster

Detta händer nu i kölvattnet efter de uppdagade skandalerna. Liknande röster hörs från Tyskland.

Hoppas kyrkan vaknar ur sin törnrosamardröm nån gång.


"Athlone priest Fr Shay Casey has said this week that it does his head in thinking about the abuse of children by Catholic priests and the fact that more wasn't done about it.

And he said the introduction of women priests would help to usher in a new era for the church."


"Speaking about the pope's letter to the people of Ireland which was read out at masses last weekend, Fr Shay said: "It's one of the many tiny steps that need to be taken."

He added that Pope Benedict XVI seemed to be engaging with the people on the issue.

"They're sending in the 'CAB of the Catholic Church' to investigate, it's a pity they didn't send them in 20 years ago," said Fr Shay.

"I hope it's not just dressage. We have to get back to being authentic and living the gospel and doing what we're supposed to be doing. Alongside that I hope it will bring about a shake-up in the Church," said Fr Shay, saying the whole organisation of the Church needed to be changed, saying there was a need for female priests.

"It's incredible in this day and age that you can deny a person the right to exercise a ministry because of their gender. It would make a big difference to the decision making process," he said. "We need a feminine influence. I pray for the day it will come, but I wouldn't hold my breath."

Fr Shay said there was a need for renewal in the Church, and said this shouldn't just be about painting buildings or statues, but a profound awakening in the Church."
