Pope Want Episcopal Conferences to Decide on Married Priests

Cardinal Walter Kasper has told German media he believes Pope Francis favors ordaining married men of proven virtue (known by the Latin term, viri probati), but is also sure the pope wants to leave the decision up to individual bishops’ conferences.
“The (vocation) situation differs so widely in different parts of the world that a uniform worldwide solution is not possible,” the cardinal said on April 6th in a long interview with the German Church’s Internet portal 
The occasion was the 60th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.

That would be wonderful if women could be ordained. However, if the mandatory celibacy law is still in force, women will have to be subjected to celibacy just the same.
