religion 6. 500 words

Reflective Question Due Sunday the 4- 500 words Fact # 1 Pope John Paul II in  Ordination Sacerdontalis from May 22, 1994 stated:  "I declare 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." Fact #2 Pat Farrell, OSF, in the Reflective Journal published by the Leadership Conference of Women Religious in 2013 made the following statement: "Nonviolence is creative. It refuses to accept ultimatums and dead-end definitions without imaginative attempts to reframe them." ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Fully consider the statements made by Pope John Paul II and Sr. Pat Farrel. Take into account the finality of the Pope's decision with regard to women's ordination and the blow that decision was to women seeking to have their full humanity (gifts, talents, charisms) recognized and accepted by the church. Yet, Pat Farell refused to see this as a defeat for women but instead as an opportunity to find a creative solution to a seemingly unwavering ultimatium. I would like you to now apply these circumstances to your own life experiences as you address the following reflective question. Recall a 'dead-end' situation that you personally encountered. How were you able to reframe and re-create that situation and it's outcome so that it ultimately had meaning for you.  This does not assume that the 'dead-end' situation was resolved to your satisfaction but instead that it was 'reframed' in a way that gave the outcome meaning. Note: the addtional information provided in 'Module 6 Question Explained for Students' may be of assistance to you in addressing this question. Your respone is due by 11:59pm on Sunday, December 4th. This assignment is worth 20 points. The Module 6 Reflective Question Explained Further is provided in the next tab.   Let me try and explain the question this way.... Fact #1 The pope said 'definitively' that the question of women's ordination was off the table.  Women’s Ordination in the Roman Catholic Church is therefore a 'dead-end' situation. Fact # 2 Many women in the Roman Catholic Church, despite the pope's pronouncement, feel strongly that women could and should be ordained priests. Fact # 3 Pat Farrell (a religious sister and member of a group that feels directly impacted by this dead-end statement) offers an alternative way to look at 'dead end' situations when she states that:   "Non-violence is creative...it refuses to accept ultimatums and dead end definitions without imaginative attempts to reframe them." So this is the situation for women in the Roman Catholic Church.  The question is how do women respond? There is any number of possible responses.  But Pat Farrell suggest that we look at a dead-end situation (be it the ordination of women in the Roman Catholic Church or any other dead end situation) more creatively. So the question to respond to boils down to this…. How does it feel to have something that is very important to you taken away by a 'dead-end' response or decision, as is the case with women and ordination in the Church? In the question I am asking you to think of a situation you are familiar with where the response to a question, problem or issue was 'dead-end'.  How might you re-address the issue, situation etc., so that it wasn't dead end or so that you could live with the decision i.e., so that it had meaning for you.
