What is needed to ground the ban on women's ordination as an infallibly taught dogma pertaining to the deposit of faith is not merely a longstanding canonical ban but a clear and constant teaching by the College of Bishops with moral unanimity and in union with the pope that the ban is grounded on divine revelation and must be held definitively as such by all the faithful. On the face of it, we do not have this requirement in this case. (Peter Burns S.J.)
