The case for ordination of women has become more acute with thousands of Catholic women  the world over feeling the call to priesthood. And while every vocation needs to be tested, if a Catholic woman shows all the signs of a genuine vocation, how is the case to be explained?

Soline Humbert, spiritual guide and advocate for women’s ordination felt her own vocation to priesthood when she was seventeen and a first year student in Trinity College.
