UPDATE: I adjusted a volume/balance problem.
Today is the 20th Anniversary of St. John Paul II’s Apostolic Letter Ordinatio sacerdotalis, which removes all doubt about the impossibility of the ordination of women to the priesthood.
To celebrate this wonderful anniversary, I give you a podcast.
I read, for your edification, the Apostolic Letter, and then the CDF’s official Response to a dubium about the level of assent to be given and the level of teaching of the Apostolic Letter, and then the Commentary on the whole matter from the CDF which was surely penned by Card. Ratzinger, then the Prefect.
Here are links to the texts themselves:
- Ordinatio sacerdotalis in Latin and English. Check these for the footnotes, which I don’t include in the reading.
- The CDF’s Response to the Dubium in Latin and English.
- Concerning the Reply of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on the Teaching Contained in the Apostolic Letter Ordinatio Sacerdotalis
In this you will hear the beginnings of different version of the Creed. There is one by Gounod, Arvo Paart, Palestrina and Mozart. Enjoy!
