O'Malley's "Some Basics About Celibacy" (10/28/02) presents clearly and concisely the Western church's traditional understanding of clerical celibacy.

      A number of Popes, bishops and priests were married until clerical celibacy was made a rule in the 11th or 12th century. The present Pope recently declared that he wants to see the clergy of Brazil being allowed to marry for apparently many of them including bishops are living with wives and have children without the benefit of marriage. Celibacy was hard enough, but monks and nuns were comitted not merely to celibacy, but chastity. Girls of good family but without good marriage prospects were often packed off to nunneries in the Middle Ages, where their natural sexual desires manifested themselves in a variety of ways. some nunnery's were little more than brothels, but in others the rules of chastity were strictly enforced.

    The Council of Trent declared that celibacy was possible, founded on scripture, and that it was heresy to say that virginity and celibacy were not objectively superior to marriage (). If the Protestant ministers were married, the new men of the Counter-Reformation would be celibates, trained and organised with a precision and uniformity. Clerical celibacy is the discipline by which, in some of the particular Churches that constitute the Catholic Church, only unmarried men are, as a rule, to be ordained to the same discipline holds in some other Churches for ordination to the episcopate.. Chief of the Catholic particular Churches that follow this discipline is the Latin Rite, but, among the Eastern Catholic.
