πŸ’’ Sacrament Starved Coaching: Arguing For Priestly Celibacy While Dismissing Marriage As Only About Sex Is Dishonest by Elizabeth Shauby sacramentlife.com

August 17, 2019

So I hear often, and painfully so, a defense of celibacy because marriage is all about sex.

I don’t think celibate priests arguing against priestly marriage because marriage is just a sexual relationship helps, in anyway their cause.

To claim that the sexual revolution hurt the celibate priesthood is dishonest, to claim that all men who are called to serve God and women, must be celibate is dishonest. Celibacy is a specific blessing for a celibate order and can’t be forced as a β€œjob requirement” as all rational and faithful people understand this.

A lot more on this....listen in...
