I was born and raised Catholic and let me tell you what, as an asexual, I might not have won the sexuality lottery but I damn sure came in second when it comes to the Catholic church. Because while my orientation, along with all other nonheterosexual orientations, is a result of the effects of original sin on the world, at least the whole celibacy bit comes a little more naturally to me.
See, because while so many people, including close friends, are going gaga over Pope Francis’ comments that he has no place to judge someone* if that someone “ is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will,” yet these same people tend to gloss over the fact that while being gay is okay, gay actions are still verboten. Worse, very few seem to realize that this has literally been the Roman Catholic Church’s position for years: nonheterosexuals and the unwed are called to abstinance and chastity. 
Nothing has changed. Nothing at all.
Basically, if you want to be a good Catholic, you’d best be heterosexual or be celibate. Because hey, it’s sure been working for those priests.
*specifically, he talked about gay priests
