Priestly Celibacy

Priestly Celibacy

Theological Foundations

Book - 2016
Rate this:
Pope Francis has called mandatory priestly celibacy "a gift for the Church" but added "since it is not a dogma, the door is always open" to change. As this Church discipline continues to be debated, it is important for Catholics to delve into the theological and not merely pragmatic reasons behind its continuation. Priestly Celibacy: Theological Foundations, therefore, fills a critical gap in the current theological literature on this important topic of ecclesial ministry and life, and also helps to contribute to the advancement of the rather underdeveloped theology of priestly celibacy.
