The NATIONAL SYNTHESIS document from the 26 dioceses was sent to Rome by the Bishops last Tuesday. This is a Major milestone in the history of the Catholic Church in Ireland as the Vatican is urged to make radical changes. This LANDMARK report on the views of tens of thousands of Irish Catholics has called for equal treatment of women in terms of leadership and decision-making, and for their ordination to the diaconate and priesthood. Demands by Irish Catholics for major change in the church’s attitude to women, LGBTI+ people, those who are divorced or remarried, and single parents have been sent to Rome. They have also urged the removal of the mandatory celibacy rule for priests. Former president Mary McAleese on Tuesday night described the document as “explosive, life altering, dogma altering, church altering”. Who would have thought that this was possible a year ago? Mega changes, please God, on the way.
