Demolition Via Married Priests

 

I know, I know… it is a doctrinal requirement that a priest be male, not unmarried; and in fact, married priests (people who have married before ordination) have been common in the Eastern tradition and are, on occasion, found today (say: Mickey Mouse Anglican “priest” who converts to Catholicism and is ordained a real one). 

But this is not the point. 

The point is that celibacy is so intimately linked to the way Catholics understand the priesthood, that to do away with it would very seriously undermine the way the Catholic Church sees herself all over the West. 

There are very valid reasons why a priest should not be married. In general (and your uncle, who is a former Mickey Mouse priest now become a real one, is most certainly the exception) it is safe to say that a celibate priest is free to serve God only, but a married priest has to think of his wife and children. From transfers to martyrdom, and thinking of the cares of daily life alone, a priest is not as free to be exclusively dedicated to his flock, if he has a family under his roof. His son’s flu will be in the way of his flock’s illnesses. His wife will be a constant element in his life decisions; he will not be so free to even choose persecution at the hands of his own bishop, if wife and children are in the picture. 

The now widely reported rumours about Francis authorising a sort of generalised married priesthood    (perhaps only in certain Countries first, like Brazil and Germany; using the incremental demolition methods so often used in the Age of Madness) would be, whilst not heretical in the way Amoris Laetitia is heretical, a terrible blow to the Church, making her even more similar, from a pure factual point of view, to the Protestant sects we have seen dying all over Europe for many decades now. Francis’ hate for everything that is Catholic does not stop at a frontal attack to the Sacraments. Everything must be sabotaged, deformed, and made unCatholic in a pathetic attempt to rescue a Barque which, if it were not for Her promised Indefectibility, would at this point appear condemned to sink.   

Let me say this once again:  if we had had real Cardinals and Bishops instead of kitten in the last two years, we would not be at this point now. If Amoris Laetitia had plunged the Church into an extremely hard confrontation between Catholics and heretics, Francis would now think thrice before throwing more petrol on the flames. It is only the utter silence (with the isolated meowing here and there) of our clergy that allows him to go on with his devastation work with the currently enjoyed – bar divine intervention – certainty of impunity. 

Make no mistake: this rumoured “married priesthood” would be a bone cancer for the Church. A cancer even worse than an isolated, at some point unavoidably terminated Francis papacy. A cancer sure to spread in years to come, leaving a trail of self-destruction the like of which we have, up to now, barely imagined. 

As I sit writing this, I have troubles even to think of a Western diocese in which the majority of priests are married as “Catholic”. It goes against what I always thought of the priesthood since a little child. It is a fundamental facial plastic surgery to the Church as we know it in the West. 

We need to pray every day for the death of this Pope and the demise of the toxic legacy of this Pontificate. It won’t get better, and the more our kitten limit themselves to meow, the more these enemies of the Church will feel emboldened.

  1. There are extremely few celibate priests functioning in our parishes to-day. The only interest of the large contingent of sodomites amongst them is where the next drug-fueled orgy is being held. The straights often have girlfriends or fill their days on the golf course in the company of the more wealthy parishioners or end up bitter & disgruntled old men who hate the ‘ignoring’ Church for their sad existence. At least with married priests we would know they were with their families & consequently where to find them. They wouldn’t be speaking against Holy Matrimony but would be a visible example of it.

    Presently, the vast majority of ‘celibates’ are not inclined to hear confessions or celebrate Holy Mass at times suitable to the working faithful. Our churches are now closed during the week which doesn’t allow Catholics to make a daily visit, or say the Holy Rosary in the presence of the Blessed sacrament as was normal. I would say VII was the death knell for celibacy & for Catholicism as we knew it & as this Council will hardly be rescinded (which it ought to be) maybe for all our sakes a married clergy would bring back the services we took for granted in our youth while providing a great example for both the sacraments of Ordination & Holy Matrimony which needn’t be seen in opposition to one another but rather in communion.

    • This is a false argument.

      “Things as they should be are bad, let’s make them less bad” can never be an argument.

      If priests are bad, let’s pray and fight for better priests in the way priests have always been in the West, for all the reasons I have mentioned.

      Besides, it is illusory to think that these priests would be examples when the other priests aren’t. We would have a lot of adulterous, cuckolded or divorced priests.

      Also, to talk of “death knell” for something that is one of the most sacred traditions of the Church (if never dogmatically defined) borders on the sacrilegious: you take an institution that has always been there, declare it dead, and want to have a new one. Good Lord…

  2. How can they allow priests to be married when priestly celibacy is required?

    The priest, as the alter christus, like Christ, must be celibate. So how married priests again? God bless~

    • They receive a dispensation.

      This is the case, for example, for the mickey mouse Anglican “priest” I have mentioned in the text. It’s rare, but it happens.

      Once again: it is not a matter of doctrine that a priest be unmarried, it’s a matter of discipline.

  3. I will never pray for the death of the Pope. I will pray for his health and safety, both physical and spiritual. If I can pray for his death I may as well pray for his conversion and protection from demonic influence. The latter is clearly to be preferred.

    And how soon after married priests will we be treated to sodomitical married priests? Imagine the pageantry and falderal as they baptize, 1st communion and confirm their adopted boys from Thailand.

  5. I guess what I was implying is that it’s not discipline but doctrine from the apostolic age…something the Church hasn’t officially defined yet as doctrine but is ordinary magisterium and Sacred Tradition nonetheless. It’s what the books listed in the link (I believe) are noting. Maybe it’s high time the Church officially nailed celibacy down as doctrine:+) What a wonderful thing that would be:+) God bless~

    • The way I understand it is that it could not be defined as doctrine as it has not been what the church has always believed. However, it is generally understood that the institution is now hallowed by 2000 years of history and could not be discarded as a quasi-depositum fidei.

      But the real point I was making is that we as Catholic should never think of discarding something that is traditional merely because we are having problems with it. We fight for what is ours, “against the wickedness and the snared of the devil”

  6. I think the demolition is underway, not only via married priests. The sacraments are being attacked, hierarchy is exposing itself as anti-christian, Jesus’ teachings are being crushed with political correction, mercy and luv….IMO married priests will be one of the last bricks standing

  7. There are also reasons of prudence. The post-VII Church has had trouble finding men to be priests. This places the churchmen in the position of choosing either a return to orthodoxy or a Church almost without priests. By expanding the pool of potential priests, the move to a married priesthood relaxes this constraint and obviates the need for this choice. Which married men does HH want to ordain? Orthodox ones?
