Catholic women 'want new recipe'

I wish to add some comment to the recent Vatican pronouncement on women priests.

The Vatican statement can be interpreted as the death-knell for the centralised patriarchal church.

As Rosemary Radford Ruether put it so memorably in a lecture in Dublin many years ago, Catholic women are not asking for a slice of the cake, they are demanding a new recipe.
