    Priestly Celibacy Analysis

    • 1171 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Lord. But a married man is anxious about the things of the world, how he may please his wife, and he is divided. An unmarried woman or a virgin is anxious about the things of the Lord, so that she may be holy in both body and spirit. A married woman, on the other hand, is anxious about the things of the world, how she may please her husband” (1 Cor 7: 32 – 34). By the same token, it is imperative to clarify that celibacy is not a dogma. It is a disciplinary rule that might be modified or suspended without affecting the sanctity of the Church. In fact, in some Eastern churches, married men are admitted to receive validly the sacrament of Holy Orders. Additionally, the Catholic Byzantine Rite also ordains married men to the ministerial priesthood. As for the Roman Catholic Church, or the Latin Rite as it is better known, celibacy as a requirement for ordination is fully in force and there is no sign that this rule will be abolished any time soon. Likewise, it is important to understand that celibacy is not a mere absence of genitality exercise, an inconvenience or a burden to man, much less, a coarctation of human freedom. If celibacy is seen from this perspective, it is clear that the criticism towards this practice is engendered from the judgements, which are often far from its true essence, either because of ignorance or because of convenience. What it means is that priestly celibacy must be understood from a holistic perspective. In fact, sexuality is integrated into…

    When I was a baby my mother took me in to get baptized at our local Catholic church to welcome me into the Catholic faith. I wore the little poufy white dress with frilled white socks and the white shoes. My hair was done up in a white bow and wearing a small gold rosary. I was the symbol of purity. Years later when I reached the age of seven, I was beginning my rite of passage of my First Holy Communion. I grew up in a Catholic household continuously going to Catholic Mass every Sunday at one…

    “Well my mother did it for my father!” I could hear the tension in his usually seductive voice. Tears began to gather in my eyes as I looked out the window. I had wanted to scream, or cry, or not talk at all. However, in reality I did not know what I had wanted. I knew what he wanted. He made that extremely clear. He was my first real boyfriend and I would have done almost anything to please him, but this was too far. Granted I am stubborn in my ways, but for good reason! I should not have to do…

    John Henry Newman was one of the most important Roman Catholic theologians in the 19th century, otherwise known as the Victorian Era (Shiefen). He is known greatly for his involvement in the Oxford movement, a movement in which many men argued for the want of older Christian traditions to return so that the Church of England could be brought back to its Catholic roots. Before Newman was a part of the Oxford movement, he was a very popular priest at Oxford, and he later became a cardinal.…

    Fasting is a Christian discipline for one who wants “to let go of an appetite in order to seek God on matters of deep concern for others, myself and the world” It is a discipline that is to be done for God and seen only by God. At the commencement of Bible College I understood fasting to be a practice that people in the church did in order to get God to hear their prayers and move on their behalf and answer the prayers that they had placed before Him during the time of fasting. It was…

    No family is perfect…We argue, we fight. We even stop talking to each other at times. But in the end family is family…The love will always be there.” This quote by an unknown author relates to the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” and to my family in many ways.
