Hopping on board to the priesthood

The Serra Club of Tucson, Ariz., hopes to get men on board with the priesthood through new ads placed on bus benches. The signs, which are on 10 benches throughout Tucson, have slogans like "White collar workers needed. Heavenly benefits package!" and "Join Jesus in his priesthood. If YOU have a calling."

"Maybe a bus bench will help somebody reconnect and eventually answer the call to a vocation," club president Chuck Zaepfel told the Arizona Daily Star. "Where the next person would be who would make that phone call? We don't know."

  1. Perhaps money well spent would be to make the Sacristy a holy place again.

    Chasing the women off the altars and rebuilding communion rails in Churches would be a start towards vocations.

    A man becomes a Priest when his mother catechizes him properly. Eliminating women from the Sacristy would provide a proper place where Priests could once again form young men for the Priesthood.

    Then we wouldn't need stupid catch phrases and signs to advertise the best job in the world.

    May God our Lord in His infinite and supreme goodness be pleased to give us His abundant grace, that we may know His most holy will, and entirely fulfill it.
