“For the moment, however, I want to offer you a challenge.  We have 100,000 parishioners (give or take); we have six deaneries.  Will you find one suitable candidate for priesthood in each deanery between now and Easter and invite him to contact me or one of the members of the vocations team.  Together, then, we can accompany these men in a process of prayerful discernment, not just so that we can fill vacancies, but so that God’s will can be done and so that his kingdom may come.”
