If good means rhetorical

The news that the Archdiocese of Milwaukee to get its first married priest, a married former Lutheran minister since ordained, gets a paragraph in the "From the Pastor's Desk" column in the August 10, 2008 bulletin at St. Al's.
In any case, today we have these married men willing to serve our church as priests. Some Catholics have asked about the logic of welcoming these married men to serve as priests and not allowing the same for married lifelong Catholics. It is a good question.

The page count of the bulletin has been down, so space constraints might have precluded answering it or referring to the Q & A: How married clergy become priests. It's a question I cover as a catechist, but that's only one tenth grade class at the parish, see bulletin page 3
