Christ as a man

THE PASSAGE of St Paul ("there are no more distinctions between male, female, Greek, or Jew etc") quoted in defence of women priests is a misinterpretation.

Christ died for each one of us individually man and woman. According to God's divine plan to redeem mankind He sent His Son to be born of a woman.

Now Christ was born a man, He lived as a man, suffered, was crucified and died on the cross as a man. The priest offering the sacrifice of the Mass represents Christ as a man. The sacrifice of the Mass and the manhood of Christ are synonymous. Therefore as women cannot represent Christ's manhood neither can they offer the sacrifice of the Mass.

So I would say to these women wanting to be priests: Accept God's divine plan, and think again.
