More Good News: Ordination Numbers Are Up!

Zenit reports that, according to statistics from 2009, more priests are being ordained worldwide, and there has been a noticeable decrease in the number of men leaving the priesthood. Of course, the number of priests in the United States and Europe is still declining, but the vocation boom in Africa, Asia and Latin America not only cancels out the decline – it actually leaves us with a net increase in the number of priests worldwide!

Like I always say, we have good reason to be optimistic about the “vocations crisis.” Things are (finally) looking up!

Lord, send us priests! Send us many priests! Send us many holy priests!
