    If the Church wants tested married men as priests how 'bout it start by reactivating some of the not insignificant number of priests who left the ministry to get married? Okay, bad idea. But it makes way more sense than this viri probati ruse. As for this article, if people don't need what the Church has to offer (Salvation) maybe Catholicism isn't for them. Even St. Paul could strike out. Shake the dust...Jesus anticipated.
