The tradition of Mary as Priest
Throughout the centuries the faithful have felt a devotion to Mary as priest.
They intuitively saw, with their ‘Catholic sense’, that Mary shared in Jesus’ priesthood more than anyone else.
Implicitly their devotion contained the strong but usually unspoken conviction that Mary, though a woman, could easily have been ordained a priest, as much as any man.
This conviction about Mary’s priestly status has consequences for the ordination of women.
