Fr Hans Kling said in Washington last week that the re-. cent Vatican declaration opposing the ordination of women "is an example of how you cannot use the New Testament. '
He continued: "According to the document itself, Jesus in his time was ahead of developments with regard to women. If we would follow him we would be ahead of the development. but we arc far behind. We have to see how we can translate the Gospel in this matter into the present time."
