The Womens Ordination Conference in Philadelphia

Tomorrow, please God, I will be in Philadelphia, to attend and address the Womens Ordination Worldwide Conference.
I have already been reminded many times, and no later than this morning, that I should not be attending, that I am putting myself even more out on a limb, and greatly lessening whatever chance there might be of being restored to public ministry. I have been reminded that the sainted John Paul has said the final word on this subject, and that forever and a day, it can never be discussed again.

Not much chance of dialogue here, I’m afraid! This email came to me this morning!

  Dear Fr Flannery,
I take this opportunity to question your latest position on the new marriage streamline scheme edict by the holy father. I would note first, that I have become aware of your liberal and progressive view, which have become unpopular among many of faithful and laity alike. I am writhing to you because you and your cohort of have embraced this new age modern way.
