Parish Priest - Poem by Saiom Shriver

He is the only priest
for a parish of 2500.
He conducts 14 masses a week,
over 100 confessions,
visits the sick, counsels
the married, conducts baptisms,
weddings, and funerals,
supervises the grade school,
etc.etc.

He needs help.

There are not enough priests
for the Catholic population.
Is it time to allow priests to
marry?
