A Reflection by Fr. Giles Dimock, OP, STD

An interesting thought:

Through time, I have come to see clearly the urgent need for women religious in the world. While some groups of sisters were embracing a secular view of religious life and loosing their numbers, I never realized that a corresponding drop in priestly vocations would also be coming. Since those days, I have come to realize that John Paul II's teaching on the complimentarity between men and women holds also in the suprenatural realm; numbers of vocations among men tot he priesthood are proportionate to those women religious who support them in prayer and friendship

  1. Yep: women who thirst for domination forfeit their real power.

    Plus, they tend to be ugly.

  2. Mark, you've got some idiot who doesn't have the guts to use his name desecrating your excellent post with stupid spam comments.

  3. Perfect post!

    God bless.
