Maryknoll Liberation

Fr. Roy Bourgeois
In 1990, following the murder of six Jesuit priests in El Salvador by graduates of the SOA in November 1989, Bourgeois and a small group of supporters founded SOA Watch. Fr. Roy Bourgeois has also been an outspoken advocate for the ordination of women into the Catholic priesthood. 
Because of his participation in the ordination of a woman as a priest in 2008, he is considered automatically excommunicated by the Vatican, which demanded, in an October 2008 letter to Maryknoll headquarters in Ossining, N.Y., that he recant his support of women’s ordination. 
However, Bourgeois considers the denial of priestly ordination of women part of the “sin of sexism” by the Catholic Church, and openly defied the Vatican.

Fr. Bourgeoise is deeply confused morally, theologically, spiritually, anthropologically. Pray that his hardened heart softens so that he returns to the light of Catholic faith and truth.
