For New England Catholics and anyone else... [Jul. 15th, 2007|07:43 pm]
LiveJournal Catholics
The Archdiocese of Boston is facing a shortage of priests. Am I surprised? Not too much.

Link here: http://www1.whdh.com/news/articles/local/BO57459/

I am wondering if they know why. And maybe they do know, they just don't want to admit it. Personally, I think it's because people still haven't gotten over the sex abuse scandal and the whole idea of a vow of chastity.

Any thoughts?

Instead of wondering where the blame should go, I think it's better to pray for vocations all over, not just in Boston.

The problem is that people disagree on where the blame should go. Some conservatives say that the answer is to ban all men with homosexual tendencies from the priesthood altogether. Other people say that getting rid of clerical celibacy is the nswers.

Right, which is why trying to ascribe blame is a losing proposition.
