Editor's Note:This excellent article is a Remnant translation of "Défense du celibat sacerdotal" by the SSPX French District back in 2013 in its Lettre a nos freres pretres.  It can be read in French here. Our translator has not asked for credit but would very much appreciate your prayers for his intentions. MJM
