Bishop Jukes reflects gratefully on celibacy

Bishop Jukes, former auxiliary bishop of my home diocese of Southwark with pastoral responsibility for the Kent area where I was parish priest for 9+ years before my sabbatical here in the US, has a reflection on celibacy at Damian Thompson's blog.

For me, the commitment to life-long celibacy has proved a constant reminder to me of Jesus Christ who came to our world to give of Himself even to suffering death as an act of loving service of me and fellow sinners in ensuring the achieving of eternal salvation for all.
