Congratulations to Jessica Rowley, who has achieved distinction by becoming the world's first pregnant Catholic priest. [!!!! NOPE !!!! She is no more a priest than I am and thinking and believing that she is doesn't make her so.]Oh, and there's a picture included of the happy mom...in an ugly chasuble.
'A little over a year ago, 26-year-old Jessica Rowley shattered the stained-glass ceiling, so to speak, by being ordained a Catholic priest. Now the St. Louisan is on the verge of giving birth to her first child, and a Washington, D.C.-based group that advocates for women’s ordination says that makes Rowley the world’s first pregnant Catholic priest.
"I'm due November 19, but the doctor believes it could be any day," says Rowley. "I'm feeling very ripe."
There are no women priests in the Catholic Church. Zip, nada.
