Pope Francis has opened up the question of priests’ celibacy, saying the practice is not a matter of unbendable church dogma, amid calls for the requirement to be scrapped. The pontiff made the remarks during a press conference on his return flight from the Middle East, adding that there are married priests in the Catholic Church, like those in the Anglican, Coptic and some Eastern churches. His remarks come as church faithfuls suggest the ordination of married men, who are already very engaged in church business. In addition, Pope Francis said that he would meet at the Vatican with a half-dozen victims of sexual abuse by clerics in June, a first such meeting by the pontiff.
