Would you believe it....

Five seminarians...
Five white albs (cassocks would be nicer)...
Two (maybe three) bowed in prayer...
One striking his breast in a mea culpa...
And this in the Journal-Sentinal...

It's getting cold out, but I did not think it was that cold.

A better ad for vocations than anything the archdiocese puts forth on it's website. Check out a Video Message from Father Lobacz. Can't you just feel the inspiration to solid young Catholic men? A smile wouldn't hurt would it?

Thanks to the guys who take their vocation seriously.

A smile won't do it: we could keep all of the churches in West Allis (latest closings jurisdiction) with married priests and Oh no!!! women priests!

Sorry Anon, you raise a false argument. Two issues require you to give more thought to your posting...

1. Is the problem in West Allis too few priests for the parishes, or too few Catholics?

2. Married clergy and/or women priests? Why is it that no one who raises these options ever wants to present EVIDENCE that it might be worth considering? The Episcopalians? The Presbyterians? The Methodists? Yea, those are all great examples of how married clergy and women ministers helped?!?!?!?

Too bad. Try again.

Don't need to look at Episcopalians, Presbyterians or Methodists, just go to our own Catholic faith in the first century when the faithful where still actively waiting for the return of Christ--the time before the heirarchy got political and decided it would be more exhilarating to place odds on their chances to become the next prince of the church as per your own place the bet article posted in your June blog.

Does anyone know where Father Hartmann went after St. Al's West Allis?

Coming from West Allis, I think that Fr. Hartman still works for Archbishop Dolan at the Archdiocese. He was pretty vocal that West Allis had to be realistic and that was not well recieved by the other pastors.

Is this just another example of a good priest saying what has to be said, and rather than backing him, Archbishop Dolan sides with the dysfunctional pastors and hides Fr. Hartman.

Hiding? Are you kidding? Fr. Hartmann has his nose so far up Dolan's butt that he can see the Archbishop's tonsils!!!

Ooooh. Someone has got an open nerve about Rev. Hartman.

Like a bunch of people who visit here, I wonder if Anonymous right above is a jealous, or angry, or, rebel, or alliance, or whatever, priest?

My parents still attend St. Al's in West Allis and it is where I went to grade school. They loved Fr. Hartman and wish they still had him there.

I think some priests are just jealous.

I also live in West Allis and I have to say that the people have created their own problem. It was obvious that all the schools could not stay open. There was no way the parishes could afford it. But so many of those people who fought for Catholic education would only support it if it remained housed at their parish (especially, Mary, Queen of Heaven.) So, instead of supporting the new combined schools, many went elsewhere. Now, there are even less people to support the parishes. And, so now we see the begining of the closing of parishes.
Until people really understand what collaboration means, more and more communities will become like West Allis. Lots of empty buildings!
