Freeing CelibacyBook - 2006
In Freeing Celibacy, Donald Cozzens explores priestly celibacy as source of power and burden of obligation, as spiritual calling and gift of the Spirit. Putting mandatory celibacy in historic perspective, he examines the ancient and contemporary experience of married clergy in the Eastern churches and the Roman rite church. Cozzens affirms celibacy as a charism, a gift that is true for some, but only when received as a grace.
