Celibacy

Wednesday, October 04, 2006

"The secret to the heart of a priest, and the reason he can choose celibacy is because he chooses to love Christ, to love the Church, to love souls in a very particular way - with absolute dedication. Because he has made this love-choice, even if someone attractive comes along, even if things do not work out like a dream, he too is faithful. He knows what he has done, and he reaffirms the choice to love Christ when difficulties arise, and even when they don't."

Fr. Anthony Bannon, LC.
