Female Priests
Just a quick question, is there any reason beyond the fact that Paul mentions it in the epistles that women cannot be priests. I would suspect that one of the church fathers would have commented on this, I usually find their reasoning pretty sound. I have heard that it is possible in Eastern Orthodox tradition for women to be Deacons or Deaconesses is this possible within the Oriental tradition ?
take care
Kyle
