This is a revised edition of "Desire and Denial". The central issues surrounding the rule of celibacy for Roman Catholic clergy are explored through this account of the lives of Father Breslin, Father Philippe, seminarian Andrew, Sister Victoria and Sister Clare. The book looks into: what calls them to the religious life and how do they cope with the denial of sexual relationships? and how do their experiences at different stages of the Church's development over the last 50 years differ and how are they similar? With an updated introduction to take into account the controversy stirred by the case of Scottish Bishop Wright, this book dramatizes the issues, and gives the reader an insight into the dilemma faced by those with a real calling to serve Christ and, yet, who struggle with the demands of the Church's rule of celibacy for them.
