Former nuns Love (left) and Dunn claim they were called by the Holy Spirit to serve at relatively young ages (2nd grade and age 20, respectively), but the established church was not capable of accepting ​— ​or even recognizing ​— ​their calling.

As a matter of faith, the Vatican insists women cannot be ordained, in part, because Jesus Christ selected only men to serve as his apostles. Reverends Love and Dunn counter that Mary of Magdala (above, by artist Guido Reni, 1634) was described in scripture as “the apostle to the apostles.” Ironically, it would be on Mary of Magdala’s feast day that the Vatican announced the excommunication of the first seven women to be ordained as priests.

Dunn and Love cut their teeth theologically when Pope John XXIII (above) was ushering in the groundbreaking reforms of Vatican II 49 years ago. Since then, they contend, successive popes have beaten a steady retreat from Vatican II. “You can’t be empowered and then disempower yourself,” Dunn said.

Lifelong Roman Catholics Suzanne Dunn (left) and Jeannette Love did what the Vatican claims is impossible: They were ordained as women priests. They insist they’re working within the church to make it more inclusive. But the Vatican insists they’ve been thrown out.
