Pope Francis open to married men being priests
POPE OPEN TO MARRIED MEN BECOMING PRIESTS
(CNN) – Pope Francis is open to the idea of allowing married men to become priests.
The Pope says the catholic church should consider the move to help curb the shortage of clergy around the world.
He called the shortage “an enormous problem.”
The church currently allows married priests who convert to Catholicism to continue serving as priests, but does not allow married catholic men to take holy orders.
The Pope did not indicate any openness to the idea of allowing men, who are already priests, to marry.
