I have dreamed of the priest I once loved long ago. My dreams have been recurrent. I have had them for the past 20 years or so. In none of these dreams is he wearing that white clerical collar around his neck. The collar used to drive me nuts, but the way I felt when I was near him told me that he was no priest to me. He was a man, plain and simple.

I have heard about the letter that several Italian women have written to the Pope recently asking him to do away with Celibacy. Years ago, I myself wrote a letter similar to theirs to John Paul the Second. When I received no reply (I really didn’t expect any), I decided to write my novel Different Flags.

    I think the Church could find higher quality priests — and deal with fewer lawsuits — if they would allow priests to marry. All the other major faiths allow for it.

    Don Gregorio, I agree with you completely–100%. Priests should be allowed to marry. They are men, like you, like other men. Appreciate your comment. Eugenia
