PRIESTHOOD.......End-time Drama as Catholic priests beg Pope to end celibacy - Says we are lonely!

Roman Catholic Church to end the celibacy rule in priesthood.



A group of senior priests in Germany has called on the Roman Catholic Church to end the celibacy rule in priesthood.

The 11 high ranking clerics, who were ordained in Cologne in 1967, are of the opinion that every man should have the right to choose to take the vow or not as other Protestant and Orthodox Church pastors have.

They wrote the letter as part of a review of their 50 years in the Catholic Church.

A group member Franz Decker told DW, “We believe that requiring that every man who becomes a priest to remain celibate is not acceptable.

“We think, every Catholic should be allowed to choose if they would rather be celibate or not, regardless of whether they want to work as priests or not – just like in the Protestant Church or the Orthodox church, really, every church but the Catholic Church.”

To the group, celibacy causes many modern priests to suffer from seclusion and believe the men have little to gain from church-imposed solitude.

“What moves us is the experience of loneliness – as elderly people who are unmarried because our office required this from us, we feel it vividly on some days after 50 years on the job… We agreed to this clerical  life because of our jobs, but we didn’t choose it,” the group wrote.

They also gave a number of suggestions as to how the Catholic Church could “modernise”, including allowing women to join the clergy.

However, the office of Pope Francis is yet to react to the open letter.

I pray that the Lord will guide the Pope as he reviews their request. I am not surprised the request is coming at this time because of the heavy seduction and spirit of lust reigning in the society today.

A situation where sisters and even married women attend church with see-through dresses revealing their sensitive body parts in a highly sensual manner is very tempting.  


The Celibate of the Priests are put under intense pressure by the nakedness that now surrounds them....and many who are not celibates from the womb have had to marry secretly, while some younger ministers now have girlfriends.


Is it not better to let those who can live unto the Lord without touching women continue, while those who are not able should be allowed to exit the ministerial Pulpit for the sake of heaven.


Shalom!
