New article on Feminism in the Church

A new article by Patricia Phillips, number IX in the series, is available to download here. It will appear in the next edition of Christian Order.

Highlights: the dissident Women Word Spirit (formerly Catholic Women's Network) has not been listed in the 2008 national Catholic Directory, but is still listed in several diocesan directories. Their entry makes it abundantly clear that they support the ordination of women; they also support abortion and contraception, and ceaselessly promote the ideas of radical feminists such as Tina Beattie. May of the people they promote and publish are no longer Catholics; those that remain in the Church do so only for tactical reasons. ('The Catholic Church has the Xerox machines. You can't win the revolution without the Xerox machines.')

Most importantly, they are completely dominant in the National Board of Catholic Women, supposedly an umbrella organisation for Catholic women's organisations, and an official agency of the Bishops Conference of England and Wales.

NB In late 2006 the orthodox Association of Catholic Women resigned its membership of the NBCW in protest at its approach. If WWS is not fit to be in the Catholic Directory, all the more so it is not fit to be a member of the NBCW.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
