Women can have a vocation too

WHAT I find most interesting about the Pope's recent pronouncement on women priests is how it relates to the concept of a vocation.

When I attended school in the 1960s, we were always taught that the priesthood was a vocation, a calling from God to serve Him. Those called somehow knew this and so they acted on His wishes.

It seems the Pope knows better than God and has decided that he should have the power to overrule God's selections.
