Sponsor an Evangelist

Jasbir, who blogs at One Man's Hope for a Better World, brings up a very important topic, that of generosity, especially in support of the Church. He says that Americans are more generous than Canadians. And he examines a little more closely the relationship between socialism, lack of generosity and the decline of the Church in Quebec and Ontario. What he says is much more intelligent than the muddled version I have put here.

He points out that for the Diocese of London, for instance, it is projected that by 2025 there will have been a 59% decrease in the number of priests from the number there were in 1991. It's as I've been saying, or thinking, anyway: let's take evangelization more seriously.

Sponsor lay evangelists, man! Hey, I'm one, and all too happy and eager to spread the word. And, this guy at Mission of the Redeemer Ministries.

There aren't enough priests left to get people interested in the priesthood and religious life. Sponsor guys who can and who want to.
