Deacons and perfect continence
#51
I haven't thoroughly read over all the responses, but it seems like some precision is missing here with regard to the definition of celibacy.

Celibacy is the promise not to marry, not the promise of continence. Now the promise of continence is implied for an unmarried person who promises not to marry, but it is certainly not implied for a person who is already married, but who by taking such a vow is promising not to marry AGAIN after the death of their spouse.

See "Vow of Chastity" here: http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/15511a.htm
