Pope requiring Priest to leave wives


I was told by someone with anti-catholic sentiments that there was a Pope who, during a move toward total celibacy in the priesthold, required those priests who were currently married to leave their wives. I have yet been able to find evidence of this or proof to disprove it. Any help?


For the history of celibacy in the Catholic Church, please read the article in the original Catholic Encyclopedia:
*]Celibacy of the Clergy[/LIST]
