As Church Infrastructure Shrinks, Rebellious Austrian Priest to Tour U.S. / GlobalPost.com

The shortage of Catholic priests is an economic drama playing out across major countries to a yawn by the news media. In the United States, 20 percent of parishes have no priests. Since 1995, bishops have sold more than 1,700 churches – on average, that’s a church shuttered once a week for 18 years — down-sizing a religious infrastructure that had grown steadily between the end of the Civil War and the 1969 voyage that put Americans on the moon.”

    When the Catholic church lost the Lord is something only God in HIS loving Wisdom could tell us? HE does speak clearly in the Bible how HE wishes His church to behave and who to allow to be in ministry. It’s all written there. THE BIBLE IS THE ROAD MAP FOR YOUR LIFE.

    Did you hear Nick Wallenda Praise God and call on HIM, constantly, when he did his walk across the grand Canyon? We all heard and it and all glory and Honor goes to Jesus for His Undying Love for HIS believers.We heard it and prayed with Nick to the Lord our God. What a beautiful example ofTrust! What a Witness to HIM!
