कैथोलिक पादरी और यौन संबंधों से दूरी

By Staff

Brazilian Cardinal Claudio Hummes
Cardinal Hummes, who takes over the congregation for the clergy this month - and he must try in his new role to re-energise the seminary - believes there is a debate to be had. Celibacy is a discipline, he said; it's not a dogma of the church. Certainly the majority of the apostles were married and in this modern age the church must observe these things; it has to advance with history.

The seventy-two year old cardinal is viewed by some as a potential successor to Pope Benedict. His comments will be taken seriously. But two weeks ago, senior figures in the Vatican met for three hours to discuss this issue and they reaffirmed the need for solid Christian and human training.

In the Middle Ages there was no formal ban on marriage for the clergy. In fact in the early Christian Church many priests, and at least one pope, Hadrian II, had wives.
