Confusion on Priesthoods still around

News article – APOSTOLIC VISITATION DEEMS US SEMINARIES GENERALLY HEALTHY, NOTES NUMEROUS PROBLEMS notes that there is still “an “insufficient grasp” of Catholic teaching and the distinction between the common priesthood of the faithful and the hierarchal priesthood is blurred.   Some religious institutes speak primarily of “ministry” rather than the priesthood in a “mistaken attempt” not to offend opponents of Catholic teaching on women’s ordination.”  This, I think, is a big problem where it is a problem.  This really needs to be corrected, too bad that it will take until to bishops from the “60’s” retire or die.
