Woman 'priest' seen wandering around St. Peter's square

Most likely a silent protest for female clergy

Woman 'priest' seen wandering around St. Peter's square

Rome, March 6 - A woman dressed as a priest spotted wandering around St. Peter's square on Wednesday refused to comment, but is most likely part of a group seeking to liberalize the ordination of priests in the Catholic church to include women. Witnesses said that the woman is approximately 60 years old, a "foreigner" and is wearing black trousers, a black shirt and a priest's collar. In 2010 the Vatican caused outcry from groups supporting women priests when it made the ordination of women one of the most serious crimes under its canon law, almost on a par with child sex abuse.
