Those who  in life choose  continence for the  kingdom of
heaven do so,  not because it is inexpedient  to marry or
because of a supposed  negative value of marriage, but in
view of  the particular value connected  with this choice
and which  must be discovered and  welcomed personally as
one's own vocation. For  that reason Christ said:"He wwho
is able to  receive this, let him receive  i" (Mt 19:12).
But  immediately beforehand  he  said:" Not  all men  can
receive this precept, but only those to whom it is given"
