The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Baptism, confirmation, eucharist, and reconciliation are mandatory for Catholics. Everyone’s called to do these, you can’t have a “vocation” to not take communion.

On the other hand, not only can you be a good Catholic while not being married or clergy, but also you can’t do both. Shouldn’t you be able, or even required, to do all seven sacraments?

The original priests DID marry. The prohibition against marriage was almost certainly a way to build the wealth of the church

Yes. The spiritual wealth of the church :^)

That’s not even the main issue thought. You can’t be a good Catholic and not receive communion. You can be a good catholic and not be married or a clergyman. So how are they sacraments?

Early in the Church there were problems with nepotism in the selection of Bishops and the fact that small parishes can't really afford to support a priest and his family. That is the practical argument. While it's true that clerical celibacy is a discipline, not a doctrine (set in stone), it is still an important part of the Church, especially when liberals are clamoring to tear it down. What most people don't understand about canon law is that any minister, priest or deacon, married or not, is called to clerical continence (that means no sex at all). I believe when the married diaconate was re-allowed back in the middle of the 20th century, deacons were encouraged to be older since there would be no touchy-touchy with the wife. Wives needed to give their consent to this too. The last thing the Church needs to do right now is give in to the modern idea that sex is paramount. There is also the issue that many parishes are in debt and can barely afford to run themselves, much less support the priest's family.

Deacons don't have sex with their wives? That's kinda weird

Because seven is a nice number. So they included enough things on the list to get to seven.

They are sacraments because they were raised to that dignity by Christ. The sacraments of the Old Law were not efficacious for salvation, but the new ones are; marriage and Holy Orders are not necessary for salvation but they do provide sanctifying grace (which is why it’s a mortal sin to contract marriage while you’re in a state of mortal sin!).

Only baptism and the Lord's supper are sacraments

>The sacraments of the Old Law were not efficacious for salvation

Hebrews says they were
