Priest Shortage = Lack of Faith

"Participants in the Synod of Bishops agree that the lack of priests is a big concern for the Church, but that it is a symptom of a problem rather than a cause. Synodal fathers stressed this point during a press conference today as they made a preliminary evaluation of the working sessions of the synod on the Eucharist..." "...The real problem is the crisis of faith, as the priesthood is the fruit of the community's faith. Without faith, there are no priests, no vocations." The Synodal fathers go on further to stay that secularization is a main concern to the lack of faith and the shortage of priests. I certainly agree. I don't believe that making celibacy optional and allowing priests to marry will remedy the situation. In fact it will make it even worse by continueing to 'secularize' the Church, which will only add to the problem. For more click here.
