The Telegraph's website is reporting that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), under new rules, considers attempts to ordain women a crime against the sacraments. As such, it is placed at the most serious level alongside pedophilia (though the latter is a crime against morals).
Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales is fretting over the Vatican's position on birth control and may not show up for so much as a handshake and official photo-op with the pontiff during BXVI's upcoming visit to the sceptered isle. Seems HRH thinks the world has too many brown babies as it is.
