www.vocation.com is an information site for young men considering the priesthood that has just launched a world-wide campaign for new priests. It’s a wonderful resource, and if you know someone considering the priesthood, regardless of geography, and they have questions, www.vocation.com has answers. While it is coordinated by Regnum Christi, young men are encouraged to find the order or seminary right for them. Of particular interest are the thoughts of Fr. Anthony Bannon, who rights about the gift of celibacy, and the discipline of of a celibate priesthood in the Roman Catholic tradition. A better understanding of this tradition is necessary for traditional Catholics to confront to pressure by the media and modernists to allow for married priests to ‘solve’ the priest shortages and the abuse crisis. This is a long article, but contains many valuable insights. KJM
