Pope Emeritus' Reflection on his Priesthood

Picture source

"...Bound up with this was naturally the question of whether I would be able to remain celibate, unmarried, my whole life long...I often pondered these questions as I walked in the beautiful park of F├╝rstenried and naturally in the chapel, until finally at my diaconal ordination in the fall of 1950 I was able to pronounce a convinced Yes."
- Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
