A reader from Arizona sends in this note:
This is an interesting perspective of Joseph Ratzinger some 41 + years ago.
Someone who is now so opposed to optional celibacy was in favor of it at least discussing the subject over 41 years ago. I don't know whether or not you are aware of this article. It might make a good read in NCR. I certainly enjoyed knowing this information.
I always enjoy reading NCR. Keep up your outstanding reporting and articles.
