Catholic Europe's falling down


  1. Big deal. My mother's diocese (Perigueux, in France) reduced from 555 parishes to 32 a decade ago.

  2. I have different take on the Archdiocese of Vienna situation. It's a rank disaster! The Cardinal Archbishop's comments regarding lay participation in pastoral activities and the administrative amalgamation of parishes allowing more time for evangelization is hogwash. The smaller, leaner, more orthodox (in the faith) Church of Pope Benedict XVI IMHO is not characterized by the decline in the number of Catholics and priests in the Archdiocese of Vienna and what the Cardinal is doing in response. The Cardinal's comments sound just like the malarky that the Red Guru, formerly of Los Angeles, used to spew forth regularly.
