Baloney Kay, there are many ways a person can be of service to God in the Church. There are deacons, Eucharistic ministers, lectors, ushers, music ministries, etc.who="Anthony MN"
I do know why young men and women give up marriage, they do it for the kingdom of heaven ....it's in the bible. Why do you have a problem with people sacrificing earthly pleasure for Jesus's sake?
It is wonderful when people GIVE up anything for the sake of the gospel. But celibacy in the CC is a condition of service required BY the CC...not the Lord. I know that it is said that the candidates willingly give up marriage...but they really have no choice. They are not accepted unless they DO pledge to give it up.
Wouldn't you feel better about yourself if you weren't so busy causing trouble all the time?
