London - Arabstoday

The former Bishop of Derry Dr Edward Daly has called for an end to clerical celibacy.Dr Daly, who was a bishop for almost 20 years, said there needed to be a place in the modern Catholic church for a married priesthood.He also said that many young men who considered joining the priesthood turned away because of the rule.Dr Daly, 77, addressed the controversial issue in a new book about his life in the church, A Troubled See.The former Bishop worked in Derry at the height of the troubles.A photograph, showing the then priest waving a white handkerchief on Bloody Sunday, has become one of the most enduring images of the troubles.Speaking on BBC's Good Morning Ulster programme, Bishop Daly said allowing clergymen to marry would ease the Church's problems."There will always be a place in the church for a celibate priesthood, but there should also be a place for a married priesthood in the church," he said."I think priests should have the freedom to marry if they wish. It may create a whole new set of problems but I think it's something that should be considered."Dr Daly said that he found it heartbreaking during his term as Bishop when priests or prospective priests were forced to resign or unable to join the priesthood because of the celibacy rule."I'm worried about the decreasing number of priests and the number of older priests. I think it's an issue that needs to be addressed and addressed urgently," he said.While Dr Daly accepted he might be out of step with current Vatican thinking he said he was "not engaged in a popularity contest".From / BBC
