Reforms in the Ramon Catholic Church desired
PERCIVAL B. ALIPIT, Baguio City

The Roman Catholic Church is in a tempestuous situation on account of disgraceful acts committed by its clergy, and it seems to be falling from power, dignity and influence and losing its reputation as a dominant religious place of worship.

Sex scandals and corruption have invaded its ranks, and we wonder if the church could still uphold its prestige. The Pope recently convened a prelates summit to address indecorous concerns but specific remedial measures to avert abuses.

Think about this – a way that the Church could persist is to institute reforms in its administrative policies that hinder the provision of needs of the priests including nuns.

For instance, to give sufficient compensation to them that they need to live a comfortable life and efficiently perform their missionary services. Also, to repeal the celibacy law and allow them to marry to satisfy their biological urges which are natural desires.

When God created humanity, he said “go forth and multiply.” Priests and nuns who have families will have the experiences in interpersonal relationships which are useful in making them more credible and effective in dealing with their congregation.

All who proclaim the Word of the Almighty should set a model of harmonious and righteous family and community life.
