What is the justification for the regular rotation priests in the Patriarchate of Rome? Was it originally intended to prevent priests from accumulating too much wealth and power? We don't rotate children around to different parents, so why would we do that for spiritual fathers? Is a priest a mere functionary, or dispenser of the sacraments? Is it correct to assume that leaving a priest in place is more of a norm than not in the Eastern churches?
