Author’s Foreword to the Reprint Whatever past evidence may have revealed about the ministerial involvement of women, the present position of the Church’s magisterium is clear. In his Apostolic LetterOrdinatio sacer-dotalis(Priestly Ordination) of May 22, 1994 Pope John Paul II declared that “the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be definitively held by all the Church’s faithful.” The document of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith issued on October 28, 1995 indicated that the teaching about ordination of women to the priesthood contained in the Apostolic LetterOrdinatio sacerdotalisis to be held definitively and is to be understood as belonging to the deposit of faith.
