Thinking about Bishop Zavala's resignation

The day after Bishop Gabino Zavala's resignation became public, the local National Public Radio station did a call in show on the topic "Is celibacy relevant in the Catholic church today?".

It was kind of a historical, theological look at celibacy. NCR regulars will recognize the contributers to that discussion, NCR columnist Phyllis Zagano and A.W. Richard Sipe, who ocassionaly contributes to NCR. In fact, Sipe's latest contribution is an essay titled: The reality of celibate life: Reflections from Henri Nouwen

The show is worth a listen.
