World Day of Prayer for Women's Ordination

Today is the World Day of Prayer for Women's Ordination. For more information check here. It's important to remember that the ordained order of deaconess is being revived in the Orthodox church. For the last 900 years or so Rome has insisted that women can't be ordained at all to anything. Not as far as the Orthodox are concerned. Further information here, here and here.
