Reviews - What do customers think about Married Catholic Priests: Their History, Their Journeys, Their Reflections?

The amazing truth  Mar 13, 2006
Rome has for what ever reason abondoned a married priesthood. It is amazing that the first 10 popes were married and we can find reference of Jesus healing Peter's mother in law in the scriptures. Rome could take a lesson from the Orthodox who have both married and unmarried priests and function very well. The book is an eye opener.
 
Logical Argument from a still-loyal Roman Catholic priest  May 30, 2005
Tony Kowalski still loves the Roman Catholic Church whose highest authorities have mostly shunned him for over 30 years. This is clearly evident from the tone of this well-written book which covers the history of the celibate priesthood and the current state of celibacy among Catholic priests. Tony is always respectful in his approach, yet makes it quite evident from multiple examples that the current stance of the Catholic Church is irrational and hypocrital (my words, not his.)

While it is evident from the text that Tony wishes the Church to be welcoming of ALL of God's children, I was somewhat disappointed that he didn't come across any examples of openly gay priests in acknowledged, commited relationships who would just as likely be seen as outcasts. But maybe that's a topic for a whole new book.

For Roman Catholics who mistakenly think that a celibate priesthood is somehow based on Christ's teachings, this book is a must-read. I exhort those Catholics to learn the history of the celibate priesthood and see just how arbitrary, and absurdly unnecessary, it really is.
