Celibate Orders

Celibacy is living a chaste life, decision not to marry during the time committed to the service. St. Paul speaks much about his life of celibacy: “He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord—how he may please the Lord.” (1 Cor. 7:32-35). St. Paul willingly chose this life of celibacy from an early age, and urged unmarried men to live this life as well: “For I wish that all men where even as myself.” (1 Cor. 7:7). The celibate life has been associated with the monastic life from times of old.
