The Vatican has rejected a proposal that married men be ordained as Catholic priests, warning the archbishop who made the suggestion that it was "out of place." Milwaukee Archbishop Rembert Weakland, the first American bishop to openly urge the church to consider married clergy, disclosed the rebuke in the final draft of a 30-page pastoral letter that was published Wednesday in the Catholic Herald, the archdiocesan newspaper. Rome's rejection of the proposal was expected. Although the possibility of married priests as one answer to the growing shortage of clergy is often discussed privately among bishops, Pope John Paul II is adamantly opposed to changing the rule.

America is watching with keen interest and profound concern the tensions among Roman Catholics in the United States, and the tensions between the national church and the Vatican. Some of the issues, including that of authority, have a relevance to secular society as well.
