For New England Catholics and anyone else... [Jul. 15th, 2007|07:43 pm]

The Archdiocese of Boston is facing a shortage of priests. Am I surprised? Not too much.

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?

There is a very informative book on the "priest shortage" that might offer some insight. I highly recommend Goodbye, Good Men by Michael S. Rose.
