Pope Francis could allow MARRIED men to be ordained as Catholic priests

October 5, 2019   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: , ,

Pope Francis  could allow married men to be ordained as Catholic priests in remote areas, in a move traditionalists fear could end celibacy.

Francis will commence a three-week synod of Amazonian bishops at the Vatican on October 6 which will consider breaking the centuries-old tradition.

It is among 146 items to be considered but it is the controversial focal point, with cardinals saying they will call for the Pope’s resignation if it goes through.

The proposal calls for older married men with grown children and a strong standing in the Church – ‘viri probati’ or proven men – to join the priesthood and help fill a gap in sparsely populated communities.

    Aaron had a wife and children. How else would the Levites continue their inheritance and so forth. Who are we to change God’s words…especially for priests? The, the catholic church, changed this along time back into something wicked….God will not withhold ANY good thing from ANY man, even priests, and a wife is to have Favor in the sight of God….it is a good and perfect gift from the amazing Father…our Lord…above!
