  • Remember in the first footnote how I said there are 23 Catholic churches within the Catholic Church, *all* with different traditions?

  • This is one of the times that matters. Only the Latin Church, the largest of the 23, requires priests to be celibate.

  • The other 22 Catholic Churches known as the Eastern Churches allow married men to become priests, but not to advance any more.

  • But even this is a bit of an oversimplification, because priests in the Latin Church *can* be married under certain circumstances;

  • most notably, former Anglican priests who *were* married at the time of their conversion to Catholicism are not required to relinquish their wives.

  • But as with the Eastern churches their marriage prevents them from rising any higher.
