Many have pointed out that to say that the teaching is "founded on the written Word of God" completely ignored the 1976 findings of the Pontifical Biblical Commission.
In order to avoid any fortune-reading of Scripture, the plain (and unbiblical) equation of Scripture and the written Word of God has to be abandoned.
These elements include such things as the written word of God and persons who live lives of grace, faith, hope and charity.
Still, along with other learned men, I believe that the true apostolic tradition is the biblical canon, the mark of the apostles, the sanctification of the Lord's Day, and those other canons that best correspond with the written Word of God, because neither the institution nor the author of those traditions are revealed in the histories.
Thesis 2 In addition to the written Word of God, there are traditions that are useful to the church and those that are almost essential, which are not contained in the sacred writings.
On the ordination of women, Bertone wrote, "the Roman pontiff has confirmed that this teaching belongs to the deposit of faith, since, being founded on the written word of God and constantly preserved and applied in the tradition of the church, it has been set forth infallibly by the ordinary and universal magisterium."
This doctrine is based upon the natural law and upon the written word of God, is transmitted by the Church's Tradition and taught by the ordinary and universal magisterium.(3)
Part of it reads, "The teaching that the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women, which is presented in the Apostolic Letter, Ordinatio Sacerdotalis, is to be held definitively and is to be understood as belonging to the deposit of faith." It concluded, "This teaching requires definitive assent, since, founded on the written Word of God, and from the beginning constantly preserved and applied in the Tradition of the Church, it has been set forth infallibly by the ordinary and universal Magisterium during the Second Vatican Council, in the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church.
The Supreme Pontiff, while not wishing to proceed to a dogmatic definition, intended to reaffirm that this doctrine is to be held definitively, since, founded on the written Word of God, constantly preserved and applied in the Tradition of the Church, it has been set forth infallibly by the ordinary and universal Magisterium.
Confirming that euthanasia is "a grave violation of the law of God," the pope declares that "this doctrine is based upon the natural law and upon the written Word of God, is transmitted by the Church's Tradition and taught by the ordinary and universal Magisterium." It could seem that there is only a logical element in the doctrine on euthanasia, since Scripture does not seem to be aware of the concept.
Moreover, the Church is guardian of the Scriptures, and we must have the reverence of faith for the Church's actual achievement of preserving the written word of God for our sake.
The response also claims that the teaching is "founded on the written word of God." However, in 1976 the Pontifical Biblical Commission, at the explicit request of Pope Paul VI, investigated the matter and found no support for the exclusion of women from the ordained priesthood on the basis of the biblical evidence alone.
The new document from Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger says the initial papal statement, published as "definitive," was really "infallible." It says the infallibility of the position rests on the fact that the non-ordination of women is part of "the written word of God." It says that this means that the position is part of the "deposit of faith," to be held, in other words, with the same kind of assent we give to the traditionally held belief in the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
