archbishoptdolan-officialfromarchdioceseofmilwaukeeIn a recent interview with Catholic News Agency, the new Archbishop of New York, the Most Reverend Timothy Dolan spoke about the challenges facing the Church in the United States. These challenges could be just as applicable to Canada as well.
I found of particular interest his comment that the real vocations crisis is not in a lack of men entering the priesthood, but the real vocation crisis is in marriage. "If we take care of that one, we’ll have all the priests and nuns we need for the church," says the Archbishop in the article.
