Marriage is the ‘real vocation crisis’

Archbishop Dolan: Marriage is the ‘real vocation crisis’ August 13, 2009
Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York has identified marriage as the “real vocation crisis” facing the Church in the United States.
“We have a vocation crisis to life-long, life-giving, loving, faithful marriage,” he said. “If we take care of that one, we’ll have all the priests and nuns we need for the Church.”
Archbishop Dolan said that other major challenges facing the Church include maintaining the Church’s “public face” of parishes, schools, charities, and hospitals, inviting fallen-away Catholics to return to the practice of the faith, and confronting secularism.
