242a

On CELIBACY 

Matt 19   Mar k      Luke  
10 The disciples said to him,    
  "If such is the case of a man with his wife,    
  it is not expedient to marry."    
11 But he said to them,    
  "Not all men can receive this saying,    
  but only those to whom it is given.    
12 For there are eunuchs who have been so since birth,    
  and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men,    
  and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs    
  for the sake of the kingdom of heaven.    
  He who is able to receive this,    
  left him receive it."
