on that note

And on the Blessed Mother being a priest, Cardinal Arinze offers his thoughts on women priests. via Adoremus

In the history of the Church, were there ever women priests? Women can't be made priests, at any time; even the pope can't do that, can he?

No, the pope issued a document about seven years ago* saying that the Church has no power to ordain women priests. There were never women priests in the Church. If Christ would have wanted women to be priests, His Blessed Mother surely should have been number one.

But she wasn't, she had a bigger job.  Remember humility before you answer a "call".  Is the call from myself or from God.  Who am I looking to serve?
