Cardinal Hume Blast From the Past

Yes, but what is costing the Church in terms of spiritual growth and relevance to withhold ordination from both groups? To be completely pragmatic, filling the coffers begins by filling the pews. Ignoring the tremendous potential for solid, charismatic leadership from truly called husbands and women sounds in this context like bad financial planning.

It's true in any denomination, I think, that great pastors and leaders inevitably generate more than enough income to pay their way. As my dad says, a church's financial troubles begin in the pulpit. Remedy the deficits there and the books will tally out.
