About that 'Gay Seminarian' Instruction

I was going to post some thoughts; then I read what Amy Wellborn wrote, and I don't have much to add. See it here.

I like this part:

"There are two indissociable aspects in every priestly vocation: the free gift of God and the responsible liberty of the man. Vocation is a gift of divine grace, received through the Church, in the Church and for the service of the Church. Responding to the call of God, the man offers himself freely to Him in love. The desire alone to become a priest is not sufficient and there is no right to receive Ordination."

Many people forget that there is no right to the priesthood.
