Good News From The East

Per Zenit, it looks like a rousing success story on the vocations front from the East.

Ukrainian seminaries are having to turn away up to half of the young men seeking to become priests due to a lack of space.

Coadjutor Bishop Jaroslav Pryriz of the Eparchy of Sambir-Drohobych reported to Aid to the Church in Need that in some places, there are three candidates vying for every place in the seminary.

He stated that many young men are attracted to the priesthood because of the examples they see of living a challenging vocation.

How about that? Sounds like they need to be building some more seminaries. What a magnificent problem to have!

If only we had that problem...

Vocations and schools, vocations and schools. These are the two ares where the Church is in huge trouble in America.
