Pope Francis said yesterday that he could see a way for the Roman Catholic Church to ordain married men, a move that would overturn more than a thousand years of Vatican insistence on an all-celibate clergy. He pointed out that married men already serve Eastern Rite Catholics. Women priests, however, are very doubtful, he said. He doesn’t have the power to make such changes on his own, but his statement gave hope to countless married men who would love to serve God as a priest. (Andrew Medichini/Associated Press)
