I had always thought there are two vocations for a Catholic – marriage and the religious life. But, I also know that the discipline that priests must be celibate is something that could change, and in fact we already have married priests (eastern rite Catholic priests and married protestant ministers who have converted).
So if a priest is married, does this mean he has two vocations? How exactly does that work? I thought priests and other religious were supposed to be married to the Church. How can a priest be married to both his wife and the Church?
