Reviews - What do customers think about Out of the Depths: The Story of Ludmila Javorova, Ordained Roman Catholic Priest?

You can't argue about what really happened  Oct 26, 2003
This story was moving because of the trials she had to overcome and the denial she had to face. She continues to serve in spite of the ignorance and the complete disregard of the facts of her story. It is amazing to me that her faith stays intact after the Church she has risked her life to serve denies her.
Inspirational Page Turner  Oct 4, 2002
Very inspirational. I very much enjoyed this story of Ludmilla Javorova as an example of one who served in the underground Church. The dedication with which she has served the church moved me to consider my own calling to ministry within the church. She served long before she was ordained and continues to serve faithfully today.
Poorly written  Aug 3, 2002
A poorly written account that is deceptive because just because a Bishop lays his hands on a woman does not mean she has been ordained. SInce the church forbids it, the ordination was invalid. History teaches that whenever women are ordained (episcopal church) , heterosexual men and families leave the church in mass numbers.
The Only Opinion that Matters.....  Jun 7, 2002
...that is, the "opinion" (read: authoritative judgement) of Christ's Visible Representative on earth, the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II (emphasis added):

"4. Although the teaching that priestly ordination is to be reserved to men alone has been preserved by the CONSTANT and UNIVERSAL Tradition of the Church and FIRMLY taught by the Magisterium in its more recent documents, at the present time in some places it is nonetheless considered still open to debate, or the Church's judgment that women are not to be admitted to ordination is considered to have a merely disciplinary force.

Wherefore, in order that ALL DOUBT may be removed regarding a matter of great importance, a matter which pertains to the Church's divine constitution itself, IN VIRTUE OF MY MINISTRY OF CONFIRMING THE BRETHREN (cf. Lk 22:32) I DECLARE that the Church has NO AUTHORITY whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be DEFINITIVELY HELD by ALL the Church's FAITHFUL."
-Pope John Paul II in his 1994 Apostolic Letter, "Ordinatio Sacerdotalis"

Great story, could have been more in "depth"  Apr 18, 2002
When I first heard about Rev. Javorova, I was anxious to hear her story. So naturally I bought this book as soon as it came out. I give it high marks simply for being the first account of this historic event, and I recommend it highly for that reason. But in many respects, I was disappointed with the book. I looked forward to, but did not get, an account of Ludmila's sense of "calling"; I don't know if Ms. Winter didn't ask about it, asked but didn't write about it, or if Rev. Javorova declined to answer. But this issue to me is central to defending the validity of this ordination. I also felt that I was reading two different accounts: One was what would be expected from a biographical account: the writer's narration, based upon and peppered with Rev. Javorova's own words. The other was more like a diary: paragraph after paragraph of direct quotation from Rev. Javorova. I guess the bottom line is that I just wasn't crazy about the manner in which Ms. Winter put this together.
