Pope says ordaining women is not the church’s choice to make

“The church has ‘no authority’ to ordain women.  The point is not that we are saying we don’t want to, but that we can’t,” he said.  This requires obedience by Catholics today, he added.

“This obedience may be arduous in today’s situation, but it is important precisely for the church to show that we are not a regime based on arbitrary rule. We cannot do what we want,” the pope said.
