Pope Francis Ready To Abolish Celibacy

Pope Francis is willing to allow “older” married men to be ordained to the priesthood where there is a "pastoral necessity", a trick-term by which in the modern Church almost anything can be allowed.

During his flight from Panama back to Rome (January 28), Francis said that he was "not in agreement" with making celibacy optional, only to add that abolishing celibacy "is a thing to think about when there is a pastoral necessity."

He mentioned areas of the world like the Pacific Islands and the Amazon region where Catholics are deprived of the Eucharist,

"I believe that the issue must be open in this sense: where there is a pastoral problem because of the lack of priests."

It is obvious that a married priesthood cannot be reduced to certain geographical areas nor to certain ages.

Bergoglio wants to abolish celibacy in remote areas, abolishing with this the catholicity of the Church.
The apostate Bergoglio in Argentina supported the priests who left the priesthood to get married.
I used to be very opposed to allowing married men into the priesthood for the Latin Rite. However, Paul's admonition to be celibate in order to devote all one's time to the Lord was an **option** given by him and the Church for the first 1100 plus years! It was only when primogeniture of Church lands, titles and wealth (even small parishes had enormous wealth and were inherited by the next …More
I used to be very opposed to allowing married men into the priesthood for the Latin Rite. However, Paul's admonition to be celibate in order to devote all one's time to the Lord was an **option** given by him and the Church for the first 1100 plus years! It was only when primogeniture of Church lands, titles and wealth (even small parishes had enormous wealth and were inherited by the next generation) became a huge distraction/problem did this discipline change. We have ways to hand the inheritance issue, now, and our present sick problems of priestly rape of adolescent boys/young men/seminarians and the effeminate priestly class made me reconsider. His Church is at risk of becoming inconsequential and little more than a museum relic to the vast majority of the West. We need good, faithful and manly priests/bishops/popes to lead a counter charge/revolution to win back souls for Him. Even faithful clerics like Cardinal Leo Burke have proven to effete and effeminate to find the energy and will to FIGHT AND CALL AN IMPERFECT COUNCIL TO ELECT A VALID POPE!! God needs warriors, but even the FSSP cannot raise their voices to say, "Enough! This is HERESY!! YOU ARE *NOT* A VALID POPE!! YOU ARE AN *ANTI-POPE*!!" Time for some testosterone. Time for some holy warriors. Time for orthodox married priests, bishops and even a pope!!

Cardinal Stickler's book (The Case for Clerical Celibacy) would be helpful for you to read and would put paid to the false history you present here. Celibacy is in fact very manly. Celibate faithful priests are far more powerful spiritually. It is no surprise that Satan and his minions continually rail against it.

Another example of how Francis hates tradition.
"I am reminded of a phrase of St. Paul VI: "I prefer to give my life before changing the law of celibacy." This came to me and I want to say it because it is a courageous phrase. In a moment more difficult than this -- it was in the years 1968-1970."
What part of the interview was this? The bit where a journalist asked where the cocaine from Coccopalmerio's party went?

This was the real breaking news.
Vatican also allowed communion on hand as an exeption; and so Mass facing people, vernacular instead of latin etc
Now "optional" celibacy.

“In Panama I saw parents raising their children and saying: this is my victory, this is my pride, this is my future. In the demographic winter that we are living in Europe, it must make us think. What is my pride? Tourism, holidays, the villa, the dog? Or the child?” Pope Francis [who is praising European abortionists]
Satan at his best!

I don't understand how he is thinking this is helpful. What? Is he getting letters saying, "I will gladly give almost my all to the Church"? That would be identical to the contraceptive mentality that has all but destroyed marriage. (Married, contracepting priests, now there is a recipe for extinction...)

Why this obsession with making non-priests into priests? It is easier to just make a new rank of clergy. That is controllable. Changing celibacy means that you loose control over individuals rights and plights inside the priesthood.

For example: With a new clergy "context" you can adjust rights per clergy context.
If you make celibacy optional then you must adjust rights per individual.
And that…More

And that means hell, because you create two types of priests in the same clergy context.

If everything goes fine you can merge clergy contexts but only after 200 years or so.
If you run into trouble (foreseeable) then you simply revoke rights to one context and solve the problem.

This is how they do it in the networking industry.
