Wrong.A (very) imperfect one to be sure but Catholic nevertheless.
when you were young maybe you missed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church the part about the priests being celibate.
1579 All the ordained ministers of the Latin Church, with the exception of permanent deacons, are normally chosen from among men of faith who live a celibate life and who intend to remain celibate “for the sake of the kingdom of heaven.”70 Called to consecrate themselves with undivided heart to the Lord and to “the affairs of the Lord,”71 they give themselves entirely to God and to men. Celibacy is a sign of this new life to the service of which the Church’s minister is consecrated; accepted with a joyous heart celibacy radiantly proclaims the Reign of God.72
sooooooo.. you may actually be protestant if you really believe that, maybe you will fit in better with the Episcopalians.
While pointing out that "the Maronite Church admits married priests" and that "half of our diocesan priests (in Lebanon) are married", the Cardinal Patriarch said that "it must be recognized that if admitting married men resolves one problem, it creates others just as serious."
"A married priest", he said, "has the duty to look after his wife and family, ensuring his children receive a good education and overseeing their entry into society. ... Another difficulty facing a married priest arises if he does not enjoy a good relationship with his parishioners; his bishop cannot transfer him because of the difficulty of transferring his whole family.
He noted that "married priests have perpetuated the faith among people whose difficult lives they shared, and without them this faith would no longer exist."
"On the other hand," he said, "celibacy is the most precious jewel in the treasury of the Catholic Church,"
Our parish is very small (70 active families) and the cost of maintaining a celibate priest is already a stretch. Fortunately, we are most blessed to have a young (34 y/o) Maronite monastic missionary as a spiritual guide. Several other young priests from his community serve various parishes across the US. Our pastor also volunteers his services to the local RC ordinary who has granted him Latin Rite faculties to say mass during the week at a priestless parish to consecrate a sufficient number of hosts for their weekend services. He also says mass at a local catholic hospital, all while attending to the needs of his own parish. Were he married, this would not be possible.
