Pope Francis: No, women can never become Catholic priests

Pope Francis: No, women can never become Catholic priests

Pope Francis I reacted to a debate which has spanned for centuries regarding whether women should be allowed to enrol into seminaries and become Catholic priests like their male counterparts.

The Pope spoke before he boarded a flight heading back to Rome from Sweden on Tuesday 1 November 2016.

When presented with the question, he answered, “Saint Pope John Paul II had the last clear word on this and it stands, this stands.”

His response was in reference to the 1994 statement by the late Pope John Paul II who maintained that women can’t be reverend mothers (ie female version of reverend fathers).
