John C. Cavadini, Ph.D., explores the connection between celibacy and the deep practice of spiritual accompaniment.
If the two sacraments “at the service of communion and the mission of the faithful,” holy orders and matrimony, and the charisms appropriate to each, celibacy and fruitful conjugal love, are to be related, then the “nuptial” character of both, as arising from witness to the spousal love of Christ and the Church, must be drawn in to the explanation. This is also true of the celibacy that is part of the vowed religious life. John C. Cavadini, Ph.D.. explores the proposal that the integration of celibacy into the life of the Church as a whole is Eucharistic, and that the discipline of priestly celibacy and the charism of celibacy in religious profession represent a deep practice of such spiritual accompaniment as that described by Pope Francis in Evangelium Gaudium (169-73).
Priests, deacons, men and women religious, lay ministers, and those involved in vocations, formation, or clergy and ministry personnel needs.
