Fr. Longenecker is a wonderful blogger (I’m sure he is a fantastic priest as well, but I only know him by his online presence). He’s very insightful and great at explaining Catholic teachings in a way I can actually remember long after I’ve read the post. Lately I’ve had several conversations with friends, Catholic and not, about the priesthood, celibacy, and contraception. So enjoy this post and we’ll get back to our usual programing starting Monday.
