Woman priest struggles for acceptance by Roman Catholic Church

She suffered public humiliation in front of her fellow Catholics - all because she wants to be a priest.

Still, Christine Mayr-Lumetzberger is persistent in trying to change the Roman Catholic Church’s ways.

For the past 7 years, Mayr-Lumetzberger has been something of a renegade.

In 2002, an independent bishop ordained her and six other women along the banks of the River Danube. The church did not recognize her holy orders and excommunicated her.

Undeterred, Christine was ordained as a bishop in a secret ceremony in 2003.
