Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa...

... Oh dear, what have I done? I may have led other traddy womyn astray! I wonder if that's an excommunicable offence?

Ekurlowa must be seriously traddy... she not only understands Latin, she can blog in Latin too!

She wants to join me as a traddy womynpriest. To that end, she suggests sending the following petition to the Bishops. It's in Latin verse, so we shall have to enlist the services of Fr. Z to find out what it means...

Feminarum personant saepius clamores:
sumusne servitio sancto digniores?
Quaesumus te, optime antistite domne
te petentes feminas ordinare omnes.

You can read the rest of it HERE.

Gem - somewhere in there you forgot to add an 'oy vey'!

Mac - what are you on? I know the school term starts next week - perhaps it's the pills messing with the little grey cells.

Zombie bishop?

You might mention to her that she still has an error in the Latin in the last line: ignorants should be ignorans.

Thank you, father. It was lapsus calami - I tried "ignorantem" to edit in "ignorans".
And I would newer write "ignorants", because there is no word "ignorant" in my language.
