This isn't especially a "trad" article, but I still think it offers an interesting perspective on the sacrifice of clerical celibacy.  This sacrifice is emphasized a lot- whenever I hear vocation talks, it seems I always hear about giving up marriage, family life, etc., but I usually don't hear people talk about what they gave up by not becoming priests.  It's too bad the article is so short.  There's a lot more that could be said about this topic.

Just a tiny little part of the article...
