Oh! Yes! the media is already spouting the agenda for celebicity to end and marriage to begin...but! but! I always assumed that our clergy were untouchable, devoting their lives to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ...When the first apostles were chosen, some were married and forsook all in order to follow Christ and participate in His spreading of the Word. What pray tell do our modern day clergy have in mind.....Exactly, there has been an infiltration of men whose main desire is to destroy the one and only holy Catholic church, no if's and's or but's....To the faithful clergy I say remain steadfast and pray that we may be rid of this abomination...Peace to all.

Jesus never asked or required his priests/apostles/disciples to be celibate. In fact, St. Peter was married as Jesus cured Peter's mother-in-law.
There are probably many men out there who would make good priests, but celibacy is a strong and unrealistic burden. This is a man-made law, not God-made. If anyone is Catholic out there, remember when we could not eat meat on Friday? I can't remember if that was a mortal or venial sin--but now it's okay.
God is shaking up the Catholic Church and that's very good.
