Satire - Pope Francis and the 'Third Vatican Council'

The claims are untrue. The report comes from the SATIRICAL WEBSITE DIVERSITY CHRONICLE and is a work of FICTION. There is no Third Vatican Council and Pope Francis made no such announcements.

Celibacy is not a doctrine of The Church, but a discipline of choice.
There are many married Catholic clergy, they are known as permanent Deacons
However, the candidates for orders are solemnly warned by the bishop at the beginning of the ceremony regarding the gravity of the obligation which they are incurring.
He tells them:
"You ought anxiously to consider again and again what sort of a burden this is which you are taking upon you of your own accord. Up to this you are free. You may still, if you choose, turn to the aims and desires of the world. But if you receive this order it will no longer be lawful to turn back from your purpose. You will be required to continue in the service of God, and with His assistance to observe chastity and to be bound for ever in the ministrations of the Altar, to serve who is to reign."
http://newadvent.org/cathen/03481a.htm
In Matthew 19:12, Christ clearly commends those who, "for the sake of the kingdom of God", have held aloof from the married state, though He adds: "he who can accept it, let him accept it".
St. Paul is even more explicit:
"I would that all men were even as myself; but every one hath his proper gift from God .... But I say to the unmarried and to the widows, it is good for them if they so continue, even as I.
And further on:
"But I would have you to be without solicitude. He that is without a wife is solicitous for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please God. But he that is with a wife, is solicitous for the things of the world, how he may please his wife: and he is divided. And the unmarried woman and the virgin thinketh on the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and spirit. But she that is married thinketh on the things of this world how she may please her husband. And this I speak for your profit, not to cast a snare upon you, but for that which is decent and which may give you power to attend upon the Lord without impediment." (1 Corinthians 7:7-8 and 32-35)
A rose by any other name is still a rose......

By stepping forward despite this warning, when invited to do so, and by co-operating in the rest of the ordination service, the candidate is understood to bind himself equivalently by a vow of chastity. He is henceforth unable to contract a valid marriage, and any serious transgression in the matter of this vow is not only a grievous sin in itself but incurs the additional guilt of sacrilege.

If he does not accept this requirement by stepping forward....a priest he is not...pure and simple...

Celibacy in the Priesthood
In examining the issue of celibacy, we should first address its historical development in the life of the Church and then, next week, its spiritual basis and relevance for todayís clergy.
Our Lord presented celibacy as a legitimate lifestyle not only by His very life, since He never married, but also in His teaching. When our Lord emphasized that marriage was a covenant between husband and wife and thereby prohibited divorce and re-marriage (cf. Mt 19:3-12), He concluded, "Some men are incapable of sexual activity from birth; some have been deliberately made so; and some there are who have freely renounced sex for the sake of Godís reign." Traditionally, our Church ó as cited in the Catechism (No. 1579)ó points to this "free renunciation of sex for the sake of Godís reign" as a basis for celibacy.

Jesus didn't marry because He didn't come to make more flesh in the world. He came to overcome the sin into which flesh had fallen. he couldn't do that by obeying the flesh.
He also said that there were very few who could 'deal' with celibacy...not hundreds...even thousands...who are required to promise to do so as a requirement for their position in the CC...and many of them don't make it.
I know that you will say that they 'willingly' take that pledge...but YOU know that if they do not, they will not be accepted.

I'm beginning to believe it was a hoax. But then we have to face the reality that the pope truly believes his church is the only true church.

"Few" does not mean "None". Obviously, "Some" could accept it even in Jesus' time.

The Orthodox Church also has celibacy requirements as I noted in a subsequent post. What are your thoughts on that?

The definition of the Greek word for tradition in Scripture is: a precept; specially, the Jewish traditionary law:--ordinance, tradition.

You, typical of graduates of Hollywood 101, use the English definition: A time-honored practice or set of such practices....

Beginning to believe? Why didn't you check it out instead of putting your trust in web sites such as "Diversity Chronicle" and "Historical News" or whatever? That would have been the wisest and most prudent thing to do, the most "Christian" thing to do.

How many churches did Christ build? To how many churches did he impart His authority to bind and loose and give the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven?

So, of course, the Pope believes it! It's true! Have you ever read the document referred to in those articles you keep linking to? Just like your error about the "3rd Vatican Council", you're accepting whatever you read on the internet, no matter who publishes it, instead of going to the source and finding out what is truly stated, truly taught, truly believed. Knowledge is a wonderful thing.

When churches split, each keeps some of the original beliefs. Celibacy is still not a lifestyle that can be commanded of others. It is the foundation stone of the abuse scandal so prevalent today. Many of those men had high hopes of living a holy life, but they didn't understand that "the flesh is enmity (at war) with the spirit."

You might try using the internet to study evolution so that you can somewhat intelligibly debate the topic. Otherwise, good luck with your new costumed job at The Holy Land Experience. I guess they will always need sheeple like you at the Holy Snack Hut....
Darwin and modern evolutionists still have lots of faith that given long enough periods of time,(lots of time) frogs would evolve into handsome princes.

[QUOTE who="ReginaM."]In the Eastern Church, a distinction was made between bishops and other clergy as to whether they had to be celibate. Emperor Justinianís Code of Civil Law forbade anyone who had children or even nephews to be consecrated a bishop. The Council of Trullo (692) mandated that a bishop be celibate, and if he were married, he would have to separate from his wife before his consecration. Priests, deacons, and subdeacons were forbidden to marry after ordination, although they were to continue to fulfill their marital vows if married before ordination. These regulations still stand for most of the Eastern Churches.

[/QUOTE]

....but why??? You tell us the rules but you don't give clear information of what the real purpose for being celebrate is.

.....HUH!.....The clergy endorses the loving marriage of their followers, to love, be loved and have children, but the very same church that encourages marriage forbids their own clergy to enjoy the love of marriage and children themselves.

ReginaM.

....Its all about control.

....today you say no marriage for clergy!! But when the church finally changes their stance (and they will) and makes celibacy optional, that too will be the day you will say that's a good idea!!

.....,I wish for once you would use your own abilities to make decisions yourself, instead of changing your mind ONLY! When the church changes their mind.

No, I had not heard that...but, why am I not surprised? Have you ever heard of Helen of Troy? An opposing army could not get through Troy's defense, so they "gave the city a gift'...a wooden horse that contained some of their soldiers. They were in...not by force, but by deceit.
