Benedict Altar Girls 01

Benedict's altar girls
On October 15, 2005, in a ceremony of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament realized at St. Peter's Square, Benedict XVI admitted girls on the altar. The tradition of the Church, which forbids women on the altar, never made an exception to altar girls.

The constant teaching of the Pontifical Magisterium before Vatican II is well expressed by the following words of Pope Benedict XIV:

"Pope Gelasius in his ninth letter (chap. 26) to the Bishops of Lucania condemned the evil practice which had been introduced of women serving the priest at the celebration of Mass. Since this abuse had spread to the Greeks, Innocent IV strictly forbade it in his letter to the Bishop of Tusculum: 'Women should not dare to serve at the altar; they should be altogether refused this ministry.' We too have forbidden this practice in the same words in Our oft-repeated constitution Etsi Pastoralis, sect. 6, n. 21" (Pope Benedict XIV, Encyclical Allatae Sunt, July 26, 1755, n. 29)

One sees that admitting altar girls is a way for the "conservative" Benedict XVI to rubber stamp the increasingly frequent feminine presence on the altar that is found everywhere in the Conciliar Church.
