Not illustrated. 1899 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER IV. THE GREAT "DAY OF ATONEMENT." LEVITICUS 16:3-33. The Oedee Of The Type And Its Antitypical Significations.--The Bullock. --The Peiest.--The Enteance Of The Holies With The Blood.--The InCense, The Sweet Odoe, And The Stench.--Enteeing The Most Holy.-- The Loed's Goat.--The Scapegoat.--T.he Blessing Of The People. THE Day of Atonement as a type should be considered -*. as separate from and yet a part (r)f and related to other Tabernacle types. Indeed, these types are each separate piftures, so to speak; each has its own subject and teaches its own lessons, and yet all are in agreement--parts of one gallery, and harmonious as the work of one great Artist. In all of them we are to look first for the Head and then for his body, the under priests, the Church. To understand the significance of the Day of Atonement and its work, we must realize that while our Lord Jesus personally is the Chief Priest to the under priesthood, the Gospel Church, "his body," yet in the more full and complete sense he is the Head and we are the members of the body of the world's High Priest. Just so Aaron was chief over his under priesthood, while really in its general and proper sense, and representing the under priests, he was ordained to minister as High Priest "for all the people" of Israel, --the typical representatives of all humanity, desirous of having atonement made for their sins and to return to divine favor and obedience. 4 T 49 As the consecrating of the antitypical priesthood includes all the members of the body, and requires all of the Gospel age to complete it, so also with the sin-offering, or the sacrifice of atonement: it commenced with the Head, and we, the members of his body, fill up the measure of the sufferings of Christ which...
While numerous provocative works have sought to justify why women should be ordained as Catholic priests, "When Women Become Priests" is the first sustained reflection on the differences that would obtain with women at the altar. In the face of a centuries-old tradition of a male priesthood, what are the implications for the Catholic church of ordaining women? Would women priests become co-opted into the male clerical caste, particularly in relation to celebrating the sacraments? In an analysis that deftly unites feminist criticism, psychoanalysis, and Catholic theology, Kelley A. Raab explores the symbolic implications of women at the altar, providing rich insight into issues of gender, symbolism, and power.
"When Women Become Priests" addresses critical issues about the effect of a female priest on the parishioners she would serve, on the sacrament of communion, and on the significance of the symbolism of Jesus that priest maintain during certain ceremonies. Rooted in her firm belief in the place of women within the Catholic priesthood, Raab's work is one that -- rather than reducing religious convictions to psychological construct -- seeks to re-invigorate these convictions for the contemporary world.
Supported by interviews with women in the Episcopal priesthood (which has ordained women since 1977), Raab draws upon object-relations theory, Freudian concepts of the unconscious, and French feminist thinkers Julia Kristeva and Luce Irigaray to show how the celebration of mass by women priests would require a constructive reenvisioning of core dimensions of Catholic theology.
These papers are personal letters addressed to a parish priest of the Church of Borne, Father A. M. S.-, whose acquaintance I made on a railway journey, and with this cultured gentleman it was a pleasure to converse. When we parted, he accepted from me a little volume dealing with a portion of Holy Scripture, concerning which he afterwards wrote me a very appreciative letter. Our correspondence was interrupted by illness on my part, which for a long time hindered my again writing him. Of the earlier letters I kept no copies; but the latter ones were written in duplicate, and are now published with the hope that they may prove helpful to the reader.
