Pope John Paul II has claimed to have no authority to ordain women to the priesthood. Since the Catholic Church believes that all legitimate authority is derived from its source---God, the Creator, Dr. Javier shows how the authority is present in the Church to ordain women priests by virtue of God's own example.
In choosing Mary as the one human parent of Jesus, the Christ, God ordained her priest by definition. Dr. Javier shows how the belief has been implicit in the Church since its inception, using scripture, tradition, and theological writings including those of Pope John Paul II and Cardinal Ratzinger.
Examining the need of today's church for priestly vocations and the expressed desire of women to serve the Church through the Sacrament of Holy Orders, Dr. Javier concludes that Mary, the Mother of God, first woman priest, is the exemplar for the ordination of women.
