Cardinal John J. O'ConnorJesus and Cardinal O'Connor have the answer why priestly celibacy must be preserved in the Church for "No one can serve two masters"

   In his column today, Pat Ludwa brings up the same issue that was discussed by the American bishops at the Plenary Assembly in Milwaukee last week, the shortage of priests. He focuses on the hollow argument that priests should be allowed to marry and proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt that it won't work because that is not what Christ intended. Pat points out, through exerpts from the late Cardinal John Joseph O'Connor's book "Celibacy Isn't The Problem" as well as Sacred Scripture and writings of the early Church fathers, that man cannot serve two masters and the whole crux of the problem is that the only way to ensure vocations to the priesthood and good priests is through sacrifice, prayer and a total fiat to God's Will, not man's.
