VATICAN CITY — A U.S. Catholic priest who supports ordination for women has been detained by police after marching to the Vatican to press the Holy See to lift its ban on women priests.
The Rev. Roy Bourgeois and two supporters were taken away Monday in a police car after their group marched down the main boulevard leading to the Vatican and chanted outside St. Peter’s Square “What do we want? Women priests!”
One of Bourgeois’ lawyers, Bill Quigley, says police had tried to take the group’s banners and members resisted.
Bourgeois and members of the Women’s Ordination Conference and other groups that support women priests had come to Rome to deliver a petition backing Bourgeois, who is facing dismissal from his Maryknoll order for his support of women’s ordination. [Source]
“What do we want? Priests faithful to the magisterium!”
“Bourgeois and members of the Women’s Ordination Conference and other groups”
Considering that there were three people including Fr. Bourgeois involved that statement seems off.
