~~~<quoted text>My Diocese has the most seminarians in the Country, we have successfull Catholic schools, we have a very active Catholic Social Service, we have cloistered nuns who are getting novitiates all the time. We have very active parishes. we have an average two, three priests per parish. We have an active Bishop too. We don't have girls serving, we are very traditional, I guess this is why God smiles on us.

Are you sure he is smiling....(since their is nothing you have written
about.... found/included in the Bible.)...
Are is he laughing out loud?
Pro 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
Pro 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
Pro 1:24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
Pro 1:25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
Pro 1:26 ---> I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; <---
Pro 1:27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
Pro 1:28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they
shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
Pro 1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
Pro 1:30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
Pro 1:31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
