There are four million Catholics in England and Wales and about 5,200 priests.
There are 78.2 million Catholics in America and about 39,500 priests.
Do the math....
Up to one-third of the Millenials have been aborted. St. John Bosco said one out of every four men have a vocation. Some of those future priests have been destroyed.
Will there be a church in your area in two years, five years, ten years?
That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
In me thou see'st the twilight of such day
As after sunset fadeth in the west;
Which by and by black night doth take away,
Death's second self, that seals up all in rest.
In me thou see'st the glowing of such fire,
That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
As the death-bed, whereon it must expire,
Consumed with that which it was nourish'd by.
This thou perceiv'st, which makes thy love more strong,
To love that well, which thou must leave ere long.
