surprise blog statistic

Jun 22, 2013

Every now and then I check the stats for this blog. There are a number of regular readers from all over the world, and several thousand visitors each month. For the past two years the readership has increased every month, and this is due to word-of-mouth advertising. Thank you!

If you find that what I post here truly is “food for faith”, then consider passing the word on to someone else. All they need to do is to type “food for faith” into a Google search.

It is interesting to see which postings are the most read. Surprisingly, one of the most popular postings in the last six months is “no, it’s much better!“, inviting readers to email the link to young men inviting them to consider priesthood.

A number of readers were surprised that I suggested sending this link to any young man who has been baptised as a Catholic – even if they haven’t been near a Church for years. This is important. It is amazing how many of today’s younger priests and seminarians went through a period of years of distance from the Church. Every story is different, but a common thread is that there was a moment, an event, a situation, a comment, that was enough to awaken a sense that God was calling, and that they would find fulfillment if they followed.

So, for those of you who missed it, here is the link again.  I have made a couple of changes to the post since it was first published, and added a couple more brief priestly vocation videos.
