From the Depths of Our Hearts
Priesthood, Celibacy and the Crisis of the Catholic Church

“The priesthood is going through a dark time”, according to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and Robert Cardinal Sarah. “Wounded by the revelation of so many scandals, disconcerted by the constant questioning of their consecrated celibacy, many priests are tempted by the thought of giving up and abandoning everything.”
