This is what Pope Francis has to say:

“A church without women would be like the apostolic college without Mary. The Madonna is more important that the apostles, and the church herself is feminine, the spouse of Christ and a mother.”

“The role of women doesn’t end just with being a mother and with house work … we don’t yet have a truly deep theology of women in the church. We talk about whether they can do this or that, can they be altar boys, can they be lectors, about a woman as president of Caritas, but we don’t have a deep theology of women in the church.”

“On the ordination of women, the church has spoken and said no. John Paul II, in a definitive formulation, said that door is closed.”
