I was talking to a friend about the fact that the priesthood, and marriage are very much alike and practically the same thing--And how one can choose either to be married to a woman, or be married to the church. In the priesthood, the priest gets the opportunity to multiply Jesus in the Holy Eucharist; while in a regular marriage, the couple produces children to grow and love God in the Catholic Faith. It seems as though both are equal in importance. Then you can also relate a woman to the tabernacle. Think about that one for a minute.. The fruit it bears.. That's why Catholics respect women so much. Then I started saying to my friend that if the Church is like a spouse to priests, that's one heck of a wife the Pope has!!! I mean, that's why you have to be the Vicar of Christ to be involved in that marriage!
