Milwaukee-Native Poncho Lady Takes Maryknoller Down

A Milwaukee native was the object of a faux-ordination (technically, an "attempted" ordination, invalid for matter).

And a Maryknoll priest was part of the ....ahhhhh.....ceremony. Now he's been asked to "visit" with the Maryknoll superiors about his participation.

Maryknoll Father Roy Bourgeois will meet Aug. 18 with the three members of his order's General Council to discuss his participation in a recent ceremony sponsored by Roman Catholic Womenpriests.

The Aug. 9 ceremony involved what Roman Catholic Womenpriests considers the ordination of Janice Sevre-Duszynska to the priesthood.

The organization, which is not recognized by the church, has sponsored numerous ceremonies since 2002 involving reported ordinations of women deacons, priests and bishops. These ceremonies have led to the excommunications of all involved because women cannot be ordained Catholic priests.

Fr. Bourgeois is best known for his failed, but constant efforts to close the School of the Americas at Fort Benning, GA.

He may soon have to add two letters to his title 'priest.' The letters? E and X

Given the Maryknoll's sad track record, I am sure that without Cardinal Egan's concern they would be honoring him, not calling him in. & whatever they end up doing, it will be cosmetic,& nothing serious.
