Pope Benedict XVI on the Priesthood

Was just re-reading this the other day:

The “power” of the priest is not as decision-maker exercising veto- powers in faith and morals against the will of the majority. The power of the priesthood is to fix the point where the will of the majority ends and obedience begins: obedience in confronting the truth, which does not come from voting.

There will be no women priests, nor married priests, under this pontiff.

In other news, my local station is doing pinhead-on-the-street reaction, and it’s incredibly painful to watch.
