Married Roman Catholic Priests

“I support married priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church. Certainly, this will augment the vocation to priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church. As there is shortage for priesthood and since total celibacy in the Roman Catholic priesthood discourages priestly vocation in the present modern society and also the existing priests go through untold emotional and psychological and sexual pressures, it is better priests are married and render service to the people of God.” (Father J. Arokia Nathan)
