The survey which I posted on below, with its reference to the Papal visit to the US of just over a year ago reminds me of something I meant to write about last month.
A newsletter I receive for a religious order had an article in their April issue about their surprising up-tick in vocation inquiries they had experienced in the preceding 12 month period.
The article speculated on what the reasons for this happy turn of event might be. The author came up with several different possibilities.
Interestingly, not one of their hypotheses required use of the words "pope," or "Benedict" or the phrase "apostolic visit".
There are none so blind as those who will not see....
