WAITING. Maryknoll Father Roy Bourgeois, founder of SOA Watch, stands outside a congressional office building in Washington in 2007. The superior general of the Maryknoll order warned Father Bourgeois that unless the priest recants his belief women should be ordained, he will proceed under canon law to seek the priest's removal from the order and request that he be laicized.

WASHINGTON — Time ticks away for Father Roy Bourgeois.

He’s the high-profile Maryknoll priest who took part in a women’s ordination ceremony in August 2008.

Despite a canonical warning from his order soon after the ceremony, which was sponsored by Roman Catholic Womenpriests in Lexington, Ky., the priest refused to recant and was automatically excommunicated three months later.

“Sufficient time has now passed for you to consider the gravity of the matter,” the canonical warning said. “You are hereby asked one final time by the superior general and his council to publicly recant and accept the teaching of the Church on this serious matter concerning priestly ordination and the explicit...READ MORE

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops expressed strong objections March 30 to the “doctrine of God” arising from the methodology employed in Quest for the Living God: Mapping Frontiers in the Theology of God, a popular textbook used in some undergraduate theology classes.

Asserting that its author, Sister Elizabeth Johnson of the Sisters of St. Joseph, a highly regarded Fordham University theologian, “employs standards from outside the faith to criticize and to revise in a radical fashion the conception of God revealed in Scripture and taught by the magisterium,” the 21-page statement issued by the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Doctrine defended the rare public notification as...READ MORE

BOSTON — Criticism of the Boston Archdiocese’s lay pension system escalated last week, first as a former chancellor called for an independent takeover, and then as mediation with an order of nuns suing the archdiocese failed.

The Daughters of St. Paul filed suit in December against Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley and the pension plan trustees. They had tried unsuccessfully for six years to withdraw the pension money of 44 of their lay employees from the archdiocesan fund.

The sisters are an international order with about 135 members in the United States. They run a multimedia publishing house, Pauline Books and Media, as part of their mission.

The Daughters had planned to establish a...READ MORE
