A Problematic Notion of Sacrifice

Is this Biblical?

“I think people think that if we start having married priests, that would fix all the problems. But in fact, from a spiritual point of view, in terms of the actual communion that we share as the body of Christ, there’s actually less sacrifice being made.

“So do we need more sacrifice being made for the sake of the Church, or do we need less sacrifices being made?” Fr. Fletcher asks.

“To change that–to where we start ordaining priests because we think we don’t have enough–we’re actually instituting less sacrificial offerings being made for the life of the Church.”
