There is a video interview on Wall Street Journal about a new book which explains that vocations to the priesthood are at a 20 year high.
The interviewer is surprised! She wanted to know if the Church be being more progressive. Quite the opposite is true.
As a matter of fact, stronger, clearer bishops seem to be able to foster more vocations. Imagine my surprise.
Of course we know this, don’t we! But it is nice to hear this in the media.
It’s NOT rocket science, friends. Clear, strong, hard Catholic identity inspires that “YES!”
NB: There is a spectacularly annoying ad in the video before the interview starts.
The book in question is Renewal: How a New Generation of Faithful Priests and Bishops Is Revitalizing the Catholic Church by Christopher White.
I added it to my Kindle Wishlst. I mean, I can’t read dystopian TEOTWAWKI stuff all the time!
