    In a break with the past, but still in a limited way Belgian Cardinal Danneels has endorsed the use of condoms to prevent the spread of AIDS.

    One small step, but an important one.

    seems odd for the catholic church... no chance of him being voted pope now...

    I my experience, fellow Catholics tend to not care so much about the contraceptive rule. It's not focused on so much, and certainly not seen as an horrible sin.

    OT: As for women priests, I'd think an easier, more palatable way to bulk up the number of clergy would be to elevate the status of deacon to where one can say Mass. If a deacon's wife dies, he may not remarry, so he'd automatically become a full priest in many cases.

    And even if he IS in line for the Papal vote, he'd probably pull out at the last minute...

    :p
