The Pope Francis Effect on Vocations (good news!)

“Finally, in the oldest group, age 28 to 33, we see men often revisiting a calling they perhaps felt years ago. They return to this inspired as they are by the leadership of Pope Francis. These men first came to faith during the earlier years of Pope John Paul II’s papacy, and perhaps became dismayed or disillusioned by what they perceived as a closed culture in the Church, by the strife of the sex abuse crisis, or by what they found to
be the church’s inability to relate to them.”

This part sounds very bad :frowning:
