Cute Baby Animals or the Married Priesthood in the Catholic Church?

What should I write about today? These two subjects are the most popular in terms of page views, and I believe I need to kick it up a notch to increase views. All bloggers, perhaps blogs like mine (Godblog/Mommyblog/Whateverblog) the most, see a big drop-off in readership during the summer months. The nerve! Everyone is picnicking and swimming and living their lives instead of perusing blogs. 
But I'm not in the mood to be controversial. Maybe some other time.

  1. I'm patiently waiting for you to answer my survey question. You said you'd answer it Monday, but Monday was a feastday. Will you answer it soon, please............ :-)

    1. No problem - hey that's a good screen name for me - couldn't think of one. No worries - sorry for being impatient. Take your time. :-)

  3. Might I suggest that you publish two manuals? One (for guys) entitled "So you think you might be called to married priesthood" and the other (for girls) entitled "So you met a guy who thinks he might be called to married priesthood?" Just a thought :)

    1. good idea...maybe parts of this blog could be re-purposed for that...and I will get the reputation of being that wife that 'forces' our Eastern bishops to say YES to married men...be not afraid bishops!

    2. Not that marriage, or absence thereof, is a deal breaker, but is the situation that bleak for married Eastern Catholic men, wanting to be priests? I just spoke to the vocational director for St. Irene's eparchy (and I think it's eparchy for Father Calin's parish, too), saying there are rare exceptions. Again, it's not a deal breaker. However, a fellow parishioner suggested I jump to Orthodoxy (which came as a big surprise, given she, herself, told me to talk to Father Frank about going forward), because of this lack of a restriction. This aside, I think I've fair amount of time to discern, so there's no rush :)

    3. Ruthenian Byzantine eparchies seem to be a little reluctant- but Romanian and Ukrainian Byzantine are more open- maybe you could change your jurisdiction- but to "jump to Orthodoxy" because of this issue is wrong...while it is sad that all Byzantine bishops are scared to embrace our traditions- no one is 'owed' the priesthood. if you have a heart-felt conversion to orthodoxy, that is another matter- but it shouldn't be to 'get' the priesthood

    4. I agree on the jump to circumvent a ruling being in bad taste, and wouldn't be fair to either church. Changing jurisdiction is an intriguing proposition. Given our discussion, when you, and your family were here in July, it's something to really consider, because of how the eparchy has treated St. Irene's from my limited perspective/exposure. It's kind of sad, because I genuinely like the people there.
