Product Description

•••••
"Today, the Church calls for a dramatic regeneration of celibate priesthood and the fatherhood to which it is ordered."

Some argue that priestly celibacy is a outdated relic of a past era. Others consider it a lonely way of life.

However, as Fr. Carter Griffin argues in Why Celibacy? : Reclaiming the Fatherhood of the Priest, the ancient practice of celibacy, when lived correctly, assists a priest in joyously and fruitfully exercising his spiritual fatherhood. Along the way, Griffin explores:

  • the question of optional celibacy
  • some pitfalls of celibate paternity
  • the selection and formation of candidates for celibate priesthood
  • why biological fathers are also called to spiritual fatherhood
  • the powerful impact of celibacy on the Church and the wider culture

In a critical moment for the Catholic priesthood, Fr. Griffin brings light and hope with a new perspective on the Church’s perennial wisdom on celibacy.
