San Antonio Auxiliary Bishop Cantu + Women-priest "ordinations"

*Oscar Cantu will be ordained a Bishop tonight in San Antonio, and Fr. David will be in attendance. The two were classmates in seminary and Fr. David talks highly of him. As a gift from the entire class, Fr. David made the crosier for Bishop-elect Cantu, using his wood-working skills. I will try to get pictures soon. Rocco has more on the ordination.

*The Vatican has decreed that anyone "ordaining" a woman as a priest or any woman receiving such, is automatically excommunicating themselves. My former prof, Dr. Ed Peters, has the scoop on the change to canon law and the issues surrounding it all.
