Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 30, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 8 The Cedar Rapids (iazette: Tues.. July 30. 1171 Episcopal bishops, Edward Willis, jr., (with hat) and Antonio Ramos, begin the ordination ceremony in Philadelphia Monday with eleven women who were elevated to the priesthood. The bishops involved in the ceremony face possible dismissal by other Episcopal bishops because of their actions. Bishop Ramos, an active prelate from Costa Rica, unexpectedly joined three other bishops in officiating at the ceremony. Packed, Jubilant By George Cornell PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ The Episcopal Church now has its first women priests, an office they gained in an open re- volt against age-old ecclesiastical barriers. They face threatened disciplinary restraints on their new ministry. But the 11 women ordained here Monday, with four bish- ops conferring on them the order of priesthood, indicated a confidence about their future that resembled the exuberance of (he occasion. "I've been ministering to oppressed people, and I'll continue to do that as a priest." said the Rev. Katrina Swanson. of Leawood. Kan., one of the newly ordained wom- en. Their hopeful mood, expressed at a news conference, followed a crowded, clamorous but jubilant three-hour cere- mony of hymns, litanies and solemn vows. About people boomed out the responses and songs. they thundered after each prayer. Applause swelled repeatedly through the high-domed sanctuary, the century-old Church of the Advocate. Pries ts Co-Affirm "Take thou authority to execute the office of a priest in the church of the bishops pronounced in turn, placing their hands on the heads of the new ministers in the ancient ritual, as television lights glared in the chancel area. Scores of robed priests extended their hands, in a gesture co-affirming the action. Many came from oilier cities to cheer the advent of women priests. It happened in defiance of the church's practice and traditions, and ran counter to 21) centuries of male dominance nf Christian priesthood. "Ue believe it is a Christian duly to disobey unjust laws." Charles V. Willie, a Harvard professor and vice pres- ident of the church's lay-clergy House of Deputies, told the congregation. The women are not only the first female priests in the Episcopal church.'s history, but the first in the Western world to be ordained through the so-called "apostolic succession." This is a chain of authority carried on through the gener- ations by bishops since the time of .lesns' apostles, a lineage maintained in Roman Catholic. Eastern Orthodox and An- glican churches, of which the Episcopal Church is the Amer- ican branch. Dissents Voiced At a point in the rite when retired Colorado Bishop Dan- iel Corrigan asked if those present knew of "any impedi- ments" to the ordinations, several priests stepped forward to voice dissents. "Unlawful and schismatical." protested tile Rev. Charles II. Osborue, executive director of the American Church Un- ion, an Anglo-Catholic group. A "renegade service." said the Rev. .lames Leach, of Providence, H. I. "Perversion." accused the Rev. George Rutler. of Phila- delphia, drawing a wave of boos. Bishop Corrigan replied that Scripture and Christian teaching challenge "our customary rules and ways." and not only permit the ordination action but "command it." Above the altar hung a Scripture quotation "In Christ there is neither male nor female We are one." Unexpectedly, a currently active prelate. Bishop Antonio Ramos, of Costa Rica, joined Bishop Corrigan and two other retired bistiops-iii officiating at the service. s Twin Pines Junior Winners Monday were: Juan Peck, medalist. Christ!

My hus- band is the best. He's a good provider, we have a nice home, he loves our kids and spends his time and money on the house and family. The problem is my frustrations. Our rela- tionship has dwindled to prac- tically nothing. He gives me the usual good- bye and hello kisses, but, they're completely without feeling. He never really holds me, or caresses me. He kisses me like I was his sister. Should the honeymoon be over after 12 years? I'm no sex-bomb, so don't suggest I meet him at the door in a see- through apron. I mentioned a counselor once, but he couldn't under- stand why he needed one. Sometimes I'm so frustrated I could scream. I don't want to hurt his masculine ego. Must I learn to live with this or is there a solution? FRUSTRATED DEAR FRUSTRATED: Don't worry about hurting his mas- culine ego. Tell him what you've told me. But also ask him if he thinks you're doing your part Problems? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest. For a personal reply, write to .ABBY: Box No. 69700, Los An- geles, Calif. 90069.
