Perhaps it's time to look at how celibacy (unmarried men) came about in the church.
It came as a continuation from the Jєωιѕн Temple rites.
When it was a priests turn to offer sacrifice in the temple, he had to remain celibate from his wife for the time he was on duty and possibly the two weeks before.(Pg 94)
A Priest offers the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass DAILY so therefore must remain celebate always. NO MARRIED PRIESTS.
Also, both men and women ate the first Passover in Egypt but afterwards God gave them special regulations and restricted the feast to men alone (Pg 131)
That is why there were no women at the Last Supper and why ONLY MEN CAN BE PRIESTS.
Christ said He came not to destroy the law but to fulfill it.
In the book, How Christ Said the First Mass by Father James Meagher D.D. 1906 are examples of where the Church gets her rubrics, ceremonies, traditions etc. ....everything from why we use holy water Pg 56 , why the clergy wear cassocks and their different colours Pg 297, why 3 P.M. is important Pg 92, death of the scapegoat Pg 74, Judas, Caiphas' nephew the only strict Jew among the apostles Pg 247. only linen to be used for altar cloths at Mass Pg 287 Jerusalem first called Salem "peace" by Melchisedech then Jireh "possession" by Abraham then joined to make Jerusalem "City of Peace" Pg 224.
Sem, Noah's son became know as Melchisedech the just king Pg 223
If we just knew why Christ continued to do traditional things we wouldn't be questioning every little thing and certainly not the big things.
I recommend this book to everyone looking for answers. I've quoted from the Tan edition 1984 which is word for word from the original but EACH PAGE is headed with the subject of that page and makes for easy reference.
