Remember that in the Latin Church, most of those pushing for married priests as the norm also have other modernist/liberal tendencies. I posted this more as affirmation that allowing married clergy isn't the end-all-be-all solution as many Catholics think.
Amen. The religious life is one of contemplation, among other pursuits. It's difficult to imagine that as a married man or woman.

(Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness. And then what do you have? Bupkis.)
What they are proposing is a professionalization of the priesthood. There is a difference between a calling and a profession, because the latter focuses on
earning a livehood with service secondary. The second reading today, I corninthians 12, is about the different gifts that members of the Church enjoy. We need to reflect on that.
