About this Episode 

Should married men be ordained priests? Is celibacy still important for the priesthood? The Amazon Synod has made celibacy a hot button topic—but what hasn’t been talked about is how celibacy builds up the Church and why it is a gift, not a burden. Scott Hahn and Fr. Carter Griffin challenge us to rethink celibacy—and fatherhood—on this episode.
