Pratice of Mandatory Priestly Celibacy Upheld

The practice of mandatory Priestly Celibacy was again recently upheld. I completely agree with this as I am preparing to become a seminarian. It is not possible to discern a priestly vocation while dating or discerning a vocation to marriage. One must take each step at a time. For a priest, celibacy is necessary to give his life completely to God.

"The value of the choice of priestly celibacy, according Catholic tradition, has been reaffirmed, and the need for solid human and Christian training, for seminarians as well as already ordained priests, has been reiterated,". This statement by the Vatican again reaffirms priestly celibacy.
