A friend of mine who is Catholic told me her congregation is praying that God will provide them with a priest. I responded that is a selfish thing to be doing because God would have to convince a man to give up a woman for life, a wife and family just so they can have a priest. She didn't seem to think that was a problem.

If Catholics didn't require this, they would have the priests they need to provide the what young people need to stay in their church.

I am surprised with all the statistics in this article, that the LDS(Mormon) numbers did not show up in the story or in its accompanying charts. With 7 Temples and many stakes in Mexico and many more Temples and even more Stakes here in the US and all the Missionary work, many do leave the Catholic Church and traditions for the LDS understanding of the Gospel as well as the mentioned evangelical and other Protestant understandings.

Just surprised that the LDS numbers were not mentioned in a story like this in the Deseret News.
