Roman Catholic Celibate Priests

The church teaches that there is hierarchical priesthood, open only to MEN, must be unmarried and committed to living a celibate life. Once a man is ordained a priest it is permanent. Through ordination they recieve the power to consecreate and offer the true body and blood of the Lord and to forgive or retain sins. It is a sin to be a priest and have affairs or lead a double life ... a mortal sin, which any priest who considers this should immediately step down.

If the number of young men entering seminaries is falling because of celibacy then they are not committed to becoming a Roman Catholic Priest and the bottom line is they should consider another profession.
