The State of the Catholic Church Today--Celibacy and the Married State

I'm going to continue to post short articles that promote other works that I consider significant.

One such,  linked by Ramesh Ponnuru in The Corner (National Review Online) is in First Things, is an article by Patricia Snow, Dismantling the Cross--A Call for Renewed Emphasis on the Celibate Vocation.      Snow takes her thesis from the state of Catholic life today and from many literary works on the Catholic religious life, ranging from Willa Cather to Dan Brown

It looks on our present situation sadly with respect to the situation of the priesthood and religious life, but is guardedly optimistic about the future.

Read, ponder, spread the word.
