Compliments to you for your gracious attitude.

It's refreshing .

And thanks for posting this article. It's very helpful in presenting the Latin rite discipline of celibacy. It also points out the need to encourage vocations. I am convinced that the vocations are there, as God will always provide them. They only need to be fostered, encouraged and supported.

There is something heroic about the celibate priesthood. I am reminded of the movie, "The Keys of the Kingdom," with Gregory Peck. The contrast between his life and that of the American missionary couple is striking. because as much as they have given, he has given even more. John Wesley who devoted his life to spreading ding the Gospel to the common people of England, was married and a poor husband, because he was always away.
