ARchbishop Levada with an altar girl

Archbishop Levada with an altar girl

Above, the present day Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Archbishop William Levada, is incensed during a stadium Mass in 1999 by a young woman acting as a altar girl.

According to the Sacred Scriptures (1 Tim 2:12; 1 Cor 14:34-5), women should not have a place of prominence in the church.

Correctly interpreting these passages and reflecting a centuries-old tradition of modesty, the Code of Canon Law of 1917 by St. Pius X and Benedict XV formally forbade women to be acolytes at Mass or have access to the altar (Canon 813, # 2).

It seems that disobeying this teaching of Scriptures and breaking this 2000-year tradition became one of the presuppositions of the Conciliar Church. This would explain why an Archbishop favorable to altar girls had been chosen to be the "guardian" of Faith and Morals in the Church.

Undoubtedly a sign of the times ...
