What do you consider key elements of being a Priestess? Do you consider yourself a Priestess? Do you use the term when speaking of ritual facilitators only or as any woman dedicated to her Goddess?

In my reading I came across a definition of Priestess that I personally thought was quite odd - that only trained or recognised ritual leaders are true Priestesses and that those that only facilitate rituals in a solitary or small group capacity are (p)riestesses.

I know this is getting into symantics, but I was wondering if this is a wide spread opinion?

I've always considered myself a Priestess of my Goddess (nevermind whether it's in a capital or not). I recognise the authority of High Priestesses in coven rituals, but it seems like taking a step backwards to stipulate restrictions on the title of Priestess.

Ack! *facepalm*
The one time I didn't do a search before posting and I've fallen flat on my face.
I've found other threads on this topic, so my appologies for my repeating it.
If a mod reads this, could you please lock or close this thread?
Again, sorry all.
