priests not carrying weapons in war
Question from Dave on 9/6/2012:

I was wondering why priests do not carry weapons and act as infantry men, etc. during wars.

Thank you.

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 9/8/2012:

Dear Dave,

The priest is a man of God. Christ, who had legions of angels at his disposal, allowed himself to be crucified by his enemies. The priest is to behave likewise.

Dr. Geraghty
