Storyline

Pink Smoke Over the Vatican is a documentary film about the controversial movement of women seeking ordination in the Roman Catholic Church. More and more women are answering a spiritual calling to take on the vestments of priesthood and seek equality in the religion they love. These daring women have risked banishment, loss of livelihood, and even excommunication to take part in what the Church calls illicit ordinations. The Vatican has vowed to end this threat to the male hierarchy, even forbidding the mere discussion of female priests. The papacy has reached a time of crisis and the controversy over women's role, and their place in the Church, must be addressed if the Vatican is to have any relevance in the 21st century.

Intensely personal views of women seeking ordination in the RCC
16 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

The first time I viewed "Pink Smoke Over the Vatican" I too wept. One after another, women who have spent their lives doing exactly what Jesus asked us to do, live the Beatitudes, spread the Word, keep God's laws, and see the face of Jesus in the poor and disenfranchised, shared their longing to be in the ordained ministry. For 1200 or more years after Christ died, there were women deacons, priests, and bishops. As patriarchal views became entrenched, women were no longer ordained, and to boot, word was spread that they never had been. Jules Hart, Director, is not a Catholic. But she felt so strongly that this movement within the Catholic Church should be spread that she spent her own money making the video to do so. In 2002 seven women were ordained by two bishops in Apostolic succession on a boat in the Danube. The next year, two other bishops consecrated 3 of them as bishops. There are now 200+ validly ordained Roman Catholic women priests. Patriarchal hierarchy will keep their stranglehold on power as long as possible, but the women are coming, and the Kin-dom will blossom.
