New German Bishop Calls For Married Priests

New German Bishop Calls For Married Priests

[Does His Excellency have a “hidden agenda” about this issue – such as did King Henry VIII’s Arch-heretic of Canterbury Thomas Cranmer and also as do some bishops of the Chinese Patriotic Church – namely, a secret wife? – AQ moderator Tom] – 2/20/18
Three days after Father Franz Jung, 51, was appointed as bishop of Würzburg, Germany, he called it “conceivable” to abolish celibacy.

Talking to the Bayerischer Rundfunk (February 19), Jung pointed out that Pope Francis has brought up celibacy for discussion.

As the vicar general of Speyer diocese Jung has reduced the number of parishes from 350 to 70. He is expected to do the same in Würzburg.

The German Church does not live from the real life in the parishes but from a State imposed tax. 90% of those paying the tax are not practicing Catholics.
