A Dutch priestess in the making
The two are always broadcast together on Dutch TV. They are, respectively, Fr. Peter Denneman from the Diocese of Breda in the Netherlands, and Mrs. Joke Litjens, his "pastoral assistant." Both habitually appear dressed in the same style and color of vestments. She is always at his side on the altar when he says Mass, as shown in the photos above and below.
What impression is transmitted to the Mass attendees and spectators? It is difficult to deny that she appears as a priestess.
Since many of the novelties that today are spreading over all the Conciliar Church started in the Netherlands, we wonder if shortly we will see the ordination of women there.
Breda is a city in the Archdiocese of Utrecht, whose Cardinal is Adrianus Johannes Simonis. Needless to say that this practice is well-known and approved by Card. Simonis.
