CWN Editor's Note: Citing unnamed “Vatican sources,” the London Daily Telegraph reports that Pope Francis will encourage discussion of the possibility that married men might be ordained to the priesthood, during a Synod of bishops from the Amazon region.
The Telegraph story has not been confirmed. But a number of bishops in South America have made the same suggestion, citing the acute shortage of priests.
