Anglican Priests and Contraception

 |  NCR Today

Cathleen Kaveny has an interesting reflection up on the dotCommonweal blog today about how Anglican priests who convert (married ones in particular) will need to change their views on contraception.

As Kaveny points out, Catholics will be have to be willing to support priests with large families - perhaps seven or eight children or more. And, converting Anglican priests (and their wives) will have to be prepared to live in what might be a rather uncomfortable fishbowl regarding their more private moments.

It seems there's going to need to be lots of flexibility from everybody involved on this one.
