Valid Women Deacons leads to Invalid Women Priests
“By the fault of bad shepherds, the abominable will be embraced and the pain will be great for My poor children.”
5,122 Message from Our Lady, Queen of Peace 5/8/2021
My Speculation: that Pope Francis will approve of ordained women deacons, which will be licit and valid, but then some Bishops will take this too far and begin to ordain women, invalidly, as priests. This is similar to what is happening in Germany, where the Pope’s past words and decisions are being exaggerated and distorted to permit blessings of same-sex couples, something the Apostolic See rejected. The same thing could happen if the Pope approves only the ordination of women as deacons. Some Bishops could use that approval and a bad theological argument to justify invalid attempts to ordain women as priests.
Invalid women priests would lead to invalid attempted consecration of the Sacrament of the Eucharist (a precursor to the abomination of desolation) and invalid Confessions, as well as invalid Confirmations, invalid Anointing of the Sick, invalid Last Rites (all three last Sacraments), and only baptism — if performed properly and with proper intention — and perhaps some marriages might be valid. That is an abomination, as most of the Sacraments are destroyed by the invalid ordination of women as priests.
I believe that the Church has the authority to ordain women as deacons only. When Christ returns, that situation might change. But for now, women cannot be valid ordained as priests or deacons, and no woman can be a valid Pope.
