I love Fr. Blake , and I may have misread his post, but I wonder if he might be mistaken?
We just don't seem to have that problem in Minnesota...
The Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis is blessed with many good candidates for the priesthood as well as many good priests - younger guys and the young at heart.
We also have St. John Vianney College Seminary and St. Paul School of Divinity - filled with young men attracted to Diocesan priesthood.
