Celibacy is one of the most widely recognized characteristics of a Roman Catholic priest. But though it is well known, celibacy itself is often misunderstood. Technically, celibacy is the commitment not to marry. In the Latin (Roman) Catholic Church, it is a prerequisite for ordination to the priesthood. The candidate must freely assume this obligation publicly and for life. Because church teaching reserves sexual activity to marriage, celibacy also requires abstinence. Celibacy, however, was not always a requirement for ordination. In biblical Judaism, being married and producing offspring was an expectation. St. Peter, for example, had a mother-in-law (Luke 4:38), and St. Paul's instructions regarding ministers included bishops and deacons being married only once (1 Timothy 3:2, 12).

Yesterday morning I had the opportunity to lead devotions for the Operation Christmas Child team in Charlotte and I spoke on not worrying for the future and taking risks for God. Thought I would share what I said yesterday. Mark 10: 29-31 says, No one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age. I thought this scripture was encouraging. Although it is hard for me to imagine leaving everything behind for Jesus, as the disciples did, I know that God will provide everything I need and more. Shane Clairborne in Irresistable Revolution goes on to say, Rather than accumulating stuff for oneself, followers of Jesus abandon everything, trusting in God alone for providence.
This is part of our series on kidsБ health. Read the other articles in our series. When toddlers are learning to walk, many spend some time walking up on their tip toes, which is known as toe walking. Commonly this is to get into things they arenБt meant to, but as they perfect their walking, they walk more with their whole foot on the ground. The majority of toddlers will walk with their whole foot by the time they are three. Some toddlers are unable to walk with their whole foot, and this is something that should be checked out by a health professional. Toe walking can be into four groups.
