How bad is the situation of vocations to the priesthood tragic Germany?
“In 2017, only 76 priests were ordained in Germany; in 2000 there were still about twice as many, namely 154. When the German Bishops’ Conference tallied this number nationwide for the first time in 1962, there were even 557 ordinations to the priesthood.”
A friend sent a link to an article in katholisch.de and included an ironic observation about the photo used with the article.
Germany would appear to have so few priests, they can’t even get photos of their own!
The photo shows a seminarian reading his breviary… at Dunwoody seminary in New York.
The German bishops are killing the Church in Germany and poisoning the rest of the Body of Christ as well.
On a related note, a story from 2013 about the German Church selling off churches. Think about it. If the German Church takes in billions of euro, why sell a church… unless there is some other agenda than money or the parishes are well and truly dead? HERE
