As the new Pope takes over the Vatican as Pope Francis, in Uganda a Priest has come out openly to say, his life is empty without a woman. He called openly for a fresh debate on the marriage of priests saying priests are living void lives here on earth. They claim to be experts in counseling rocky marriages when in fact, they have no idea what marriage is all about.
He argued that in their pretentious lives of celibacy, priests are known to be consummate abusers of children, they are factors in many broken marriages with women they have themselves wedded. A few Ugandan Priests have been jailed for the crime of defilement and all these Father Musala believes is happening because of the difficult vows of celibacy among Catholic clerics.
Father Musala put his views online and the article went viral. His Kampala Cardinal felt the Priest had erred when he used the wrong forum to express his views on such a touchy matter as ending celibate vows by priests.
As if by coincidence, Pope Francis has also been widely reported as having said, a girl once made him dazzle with butterflies in his stomach while he was young Seminarian. He met the girl at the wedding of his uncle and did not pray for a full week because each time he tried to pray, the image of this crush would instead pop up in his head. For the Holy See to insinuate these views just a few days old as the new Pope at the Vatican spells signs that the Vatican may after all in the leadership of Pope Francis, revive the debate on marriage among priests.
When I imagine how Monks hide away in the wild, deep in the mountain caves to live a complete life of prayer and communion with God, I admire them, but I also know that they are ordinary mortals without the extraordinary powers to escape the naturally sex drive. Perhaps, getting them through holly matrimony could make them appreciate God’s creation even better.
