I received my Summer 2012 copy of The Latin Mass Magazine this past week. The Latin Mass Magazine is an excellent magazine that really shows the rich history and Tradition of the Church. I cannot think of another publication that spends so much time on historical figures and eras in the Church.
In their “Roman Landscape” section, I saw a headline stating “Vocations in the United States on the Rise”. Under this part of the Roman Landscape, Alessandro Zangrando writes:
Vocations in the United States are on the rise, with 467 ordinations last year alone. The seminary of Boston has become a symbol of this revival. This year, the Boston Archbishop, Sean Cardinal O’Malley… had to turn down a number of applications for enrollment in the seminary due to limited space.
The article goes on to say that unlike the United States, Europe is not doing so well, with vocations down an average of 10.4 percent. But vocations are up in Africa, Asia, and Oceania.
Hopefully the rise in vocations in the United States continues.
