The Conclave Begins.

The process to select a new Pope begins.

Lately it was noted that a small majority talk about hoping the new Pope will be open to women priests, married priests and a more lax attitude when it comes to contraception. Wow, isn't that the Episcopal Church?

I see the reason for unmarried priests. A priest must give his all to the church and to the flock he ministers to. He must be willing to leap out of bed at a moments notice to attend to a sick parishioner, he must not be expected to be home at a certain time. In short a married priest would be of divided loyalty.
