Pope Francis has insisted that women can never be ordained catholic priest, a trend his predecessors has maintained.
After he was recieved by the head of the Lutheran Church in Sweden who doubled as a woman a reporter asked the Pontiff about his stance on female Catholic Priest.
The Pope responded saying:
“St. Pope John Paul II had the last clear word on this and it stands, this stands, If we read carefully the declaration by St. John Paul II, it is going in that direction.”
It would be recalled that Pope John Paul II released a 1994 document which ended speculation on the potential for female priesthood.
