Did Women baptize? DID they have the right to Baptize?
Could Magdalene have the RIGHT to BAPTIZE?
I think you've answered your own question:After his resurrection Christ gives this mission to his apostles: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you."
[b]The ordinary ministers of Baptism are the bishop and priest and, in the Latin Church, also the deacon.57 In case of necessity, anyone, even a non-baptized person, with the required intention, can baptize
58 , by using the Trinitarian baptismal formula. The intention required is to will to do what the Church does when she baptizes. The Church finds the reason for this possibility in the universal saving will of God and the necessity of Baptism for salvation.
Jesus didn't say only men can Baptize even the Church knows this
Well, yeah, one would assume that even the Church knows that "anyone" includes women.
So if Magdalene was faced with a dying person who was Pagan then as a merciful person doing Jesus's command since she was around the Risen Lord ...then therefore it was HER DUTY to save the dying person soul
If the dying person wanted it, yes.
I believe women baptized when men were not around ...and they have been doing it from that time of Christ to this day
Why do you believe that?
So when they say Magdalene converted Provence ....chances are she baptized them ...The church doesn't say that the Baptism is any less effective if a woman performs it verses a man
Could be - assuming, of course, the Provence years aren't pure myth.
Magdalene was The Apostle to the Apostles ...Christ didn't say Mary leave the room cause your a woman and you can't hear this...when we have him teaching women ...in the Scriptures....I find the image of Christ as a supporter of women rights ...a better image than a Christ who supports the enslavement of women
Yet we do have a story about the male disciples protesting Jesus teaching a woman, to which Jesus replied he'd make her male. Not quite the same as saying gender is irrelevant.
When I read the Scriptures especially the ones concerning women
I find Christ incredibly kind and understanding of women and respectful
He wasn't exactly preaching women's liberation though. There's kind and respectful, but it's not the same as telling women to throw off the shackles of misogyny and paternalism by standing up to their fathers and husbands.
I can't imagine him burning women at the stake for witchcraft and torture
No, not if his message was about repentance and forgiveness. That would be hypocritical.
The Inquisition did its job on making the Papacy very Rich and Powerful and run by men
Oh, it was that way centuries before the Inquisition.
Women's job were to Breed more Catholics or to serve the Church without a voice in any decisions
Not true in every instance, but mens' voices tended to override. Depended on many other factors, like class. A male peasant would never silence a female aristocrat or noble, for instance. Many women had power too, relatively speaking, it just wasn't co-equal to the men in their class.
