Regarding Melinda Henneberger’s commentary “Will Priestly Celibacy Last? Pope Francis Opens the Issue for Debate Within the Church” (May 29 Perspectives):

There is an old saying that “honesty is the best policy.” Everything I read today speaks of the critical need for more priests. There will be no new evangelization or “church alive” without a drastic increase in the number of priests. The obvious answer that everyone speaks of is to ordain married men. The only ones who don’t recognize this seem to be our bishops.

It is about time for them to publicly demand the permission to do that from the Vatican. Pope Francis is open to the idea of collegiality. In fact, he embraces it and encourages it.

What are our bishops waiting for? For all the parishes to close?
