IF WOMEN DEACONESSES COULDN'T PREACH AT MASS, WHAT'S THE POINT?

It seems clear to me that the term deaconess is not related to Holy Orders but some other kind of service which could include, I suspect, a sub deaconess.

Pope Francis seems to rule out ordained women deacons in this statement in which His Holiness highlights the necessity of the ordained man to act in the person of Christ who is a man but also God, one Divine Being with two natures, man and God.

Asked about the possibility of women preaching the homilies during Mass, the Pope said it’s important to distinguish between other types of liturgies, where the sermon can be preached by consecrated or lay women, and the Mass, where the homily is connected to the role of the priest serving “in persona Christi”.

This will put the final nail into the coffin of The Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church, most of us here saw it coming, and behold it has come. Flee to the S.S.P.X. for they will never come home to Rome now!!!

You know I just can't take this anymore, is he intentionally trying to drive us from Holy Mother Church? Because that is what is happening, I will seek shelter in the S.S.P.X. or any Traditional group until Rome returns to the Faith.
