    I like to be precise. So I looked at the number of men ordained to the priesthood last year by the Archdiocese of New York. It was 10. They also have a Catholic population of about half (45%). So if we account for population, it’s more of a comparison of 22 priests to 70 priests. So ArchNY would need to increase their ordinations by 218% to see the same numbers as Guadalahara. So, for anyone who thinks this is an exaggeration, the numbers don’t lie.

    [Looking more closely at the numbers… how many were from NY and how many were ordained for some special group. That makes a difference.]
