Militant feminists the world over have long been clamouring for Catholic female ordinations, but few in any of them know that this has been the case in Poland for well over a century. The Mariavites, which started out in the 19th centurfy as a Franciscan-rooted religious order, evolved into a sepate denomination in its own right (rite? - no pun intended) which had both woman priests and bishops. Before WW2, it split up into the Old Catholic Mariavite Church (which had no female clergy) and the Catholic Mariavite Church which has them to this day. Their base is Felicjanów near Płock. It's an interesting developmennt for religion buffs.

rc is not the same as the pol-am cc. pol-am cc is it's own branch.

Zakonnica - nun. Why do we call a nun a nun? Because she gets none, LOL

Related: Poland already has woman priests

While the femi-fascists of the West are demanding the ordination of women to the priesthood, married clergy, lesbian nuns and God know what all, Poland ahs had woman priests (priestesses?) and even bishopesses for decades. They belong to the very interesting and colourful Catholic Mariavite Church headquartered in Felicjanów near Płock. Lesbian nuns? I saw a film about them once. Can they get married? I want one :-D

Of course they're lesbians, why else would they join the nunnery? Why lesbians cant be nuns? at least someone will have heaven while still alive.
