Catholic fathers and mothers aren't doing their jobs

John (or is it Tom?) over at Disputations points out a poll of newly ordained priests. One of the questions asked "Who initiated a conversation with you about considering the priesthood?" 78% answered that a priest had been the one. 15% said it was Mom, and only 9% said it was Dad.

That last figure, especially, ought to be up towards 100%. If you have children, they are gifts from God. You should at least ask your sons if perhaps they wish to serve God in the priesthood. Ask them all, even the handsome ones, not just the weird religious ones. You never know what a nudge at an early age can do.
