When it comes to vocations the only crisis is a matter of faith!

    In his column today, Pat Ludwa writes one of his best columns ever as he addresses a misconception that there is a crisis of vocations. He syllogistically points out, with excellent references from Cardinal John O'Connor and Archbishop Elden Curtiss of Omaha, among others, how this is all a smokescreen to cover up the ineptness and disobedience of the radical left. He proves without a shadow of doubt that the so-called crisis of vocations is something concocted by liberals to push their own agenda in hopes they can swell the ranks with dissident priests and nuns who will bend the rules and effect the new "American Church" as they see fit, not God. The truth is there is no crisis because those dioceses and orders who are loyal to the doctrines and dogmas of Holy Mother Church and are obedient to the Vicar of Christ are still flourishing but you won't hear the good news from the doom and gloom media brigade or the modernists intent on denigrating the orthodoxy of Catholicism.
