"The priest must make himself available to the Lord in the fullness of his being and consequently find himself totally available to men and women. I think celibacy is a fundamental expression of this totality and already, for this reason, an important reference in this world because it only has meaning if we truly believe in eternal life and if we believe that God involves us and that we can be for Him."
Pope Benedict XVI, Meeting with the clergy of the Diocese of Bolzano-Bressanone, Aug. 6, 2008
