Priests should be allowed to get married, says top Vatican official
Archbishop Charles Scicluna, who leads Malta’s Catholic Church, said the church was losing people because of its strict celibacy rules.
Scicluna said the Catholic Church had allowed priests to marry until the 12th century, and said he would like the Vatican to revert to that position
“The Vatican should consider allowing priests to marry,” says Archbishop Charles Scicluna in an interview. Pope Francis has ruled it out.
