Regina Jonas (1902)

After being denied ordination at least once, German Jewess Regina Jonas finally found a rabbi willing to defy convention and make her, in 1935, the first ordained woman rabbi. A victim of the Holocaust, Jonas's story went forgotten for many years, only coming to light when some of her writings, including a document titled "Lectures of the One and Only Woman Rabbi, Regina Jonas," were rediscovered long after her death at the hands of the Nazis.

I am not a Catholic.

But I feel that the Church is right to limit the priesthood to men.

Women, of course, have an important role, too. They make excellent nuns in schools, hospitals, etc.

I have read that the number of nuns is rapidly falling. That is a shame. So many students have learned so much from nuns, and so many hospital patients have been comforted by them. Nuns truly have a calling and deserve our deepest respect. (I personally wish that they would return to wearing the habit. They should look the part.)

Well, I am Catholic. And, a woman.

The new Pope seems very open to new ideas. Perhaps he will consider your views on this topic.
