Letter From Fr. Neil McCaulley

Dear Editor:

There is an old saying that “honesty is the best policy”. Everything I read today speaks of the critical need for more priests. There will be no new evangelization or “church alive” without a drastic increase in priests. The obvious answer that everyone speaks of is to ordain married men. The only ones who won’t recognize this seems to be our bishops. It is about time for them to publicly demand the permission to do that from the Vatican. Pope Francis is open to the idea of collegiality. In fact, he embraces it and encourages it. What are our bishops waiting for? For all the parishes to close?


Fr. Neil McCaulley
