Why Celibacy : Reclaiming the Fatherhood of the Priest
by Fr Carter Griffin and Scott Hahn




Overview -
"The Church today demands a profound renewal of celibate priesthood and the fatherhood to which it is ordered."

Priestly celibacy, some say, is an outdated relic from another age. Others see it as a lonely way of life.

But as Fr. Carter Griffin argues in Why Celibacy?: Reclaiming the Fatherhood of the Priest, the ancient practice of celibacy, when lived well, helps a priest exercise his spiritual fatherhood joyfully and fruitfully. 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.
