    Once again Fr. Mullady’s has responded with a reasoned and precise explanation of a moral issue. His exposition of the moral implications of socialized medicine go to the core of the matter – the practice of medicine is, at its heart, personal. It therefore surely belongs under the principle of subsidiarity; with the reasonable exceptions cited.

    I am a long time reader and have appreciated the authors selected for this fine magazine Q&A column.

  2. An interesting pairing of questions. “Men only” is not prescriptive but descriptive. It also describes an action connected with the rite, namely selection. Isn’t it the sort of decision that is better suited to the “smaller community,” the local parish?

    Thank you Father Mulady, for this very clear idea showing the facts of economics and medicine. And with Pope Francis washing the feet of women there is the papal magisterium at work where there is no appeal from the pope. This was the Pope’s own action and if he wishes to allow the universal church to do the same it is up to him.
