Unlike their prot counterparts parish priests work 24/7. Most people don't know Catholic Churches are a primary stop for folks needing resources for everything from food to gasoline. I knew a priest who kept an account at a local gas station just so those in need could go fill up. It would take a very special person to be married to a priest to be able to put up with the demands and interruptions from not only parishioners but the general public.<quoted text>
Left their fish gear and boats??? SS rides again. They left everything but the clothes on their back. He told them let somebody else bury their dead.
You know Jesus preached from Peters boat often. He still had it, but he was to become fishers of men.
The Church is often called the Barque Peter.
I think the fact that Jesus never married or any of the other Apostles and Paul highly recommended it was bigger reason for celibacy.

I agree. I don't Jesus would have picked him if his wife was still around. She must have died. She did not travel with Peter and Jesus. There is no mention of her in scripture or history.
They list many women traveling with them, but no wife of Peter.
