Poll-Release Monday #59

Here is this week's new poll question (and just in the nick of time too!):

True or false? The ordination of women remains an option which the Church may choose in the future.
Note that the question is not "Do you think that women should be ordained?" but "Can the Church choose that option?" or, in other words, "Does the Church have the power to ordain women if the Church so chooses?" Vote in the poll in the sidebar.

As for the last poll, here are the results:
  • True or False?: Ordination imprints an indelible sacramental character
    • True: 24 (92%)
    • False: 2 (8%)
The correct answer is:
  • TRUE, cf. CCC no. 1582: As in the case of Baptism and Confirmation this share in Christ's office is granted once for all. The sacrament of Holy Orders, like the other two, confers an indelible spiritual character and cannot be repeated or conferred temporarily (cf. Council of Trent: DS 1767; LG 21; 28; 29; PO 2).
The two of you who voted "False" have some learning to do! I suggest the following:Pax Christi,
