Nevertheless, I think we need to continue to pray for priests.
The church pendulum is swinging back to the right and I believe we will see more vocations as it does.
There is no "right" or "left" in the Catholic faith, only "authentic" and "false." If the faith being presented is false, it doesn't matter whether it comes from the right or the left. Regarding a potential increase in vocations, the dire indications that are already in place do not even reflect the fallout from the priestly scandal which is going to be immense and long-lasting.
I stand corrected. Could we agree that more churches are becoming authentic?
More priests teaching orthodoxy?
More music in Latin and of approved sources (not the OCP kind, either)??
More Catholics starting to come back to the Church??
More deacons?? (Will they become priests, however, when their wives are deceased?)

Some dioceses will probably collapse--and should. The Church can then be restored by expanding from the healthy ones.
