Facts from France: No New Seminarians in Toulon

There were 105 ordinations in France this year, compared to 88 in 2023. Jean-Pierre Maugendre of Renaissance catholique has looked into the details.

- The newly ordained in France are not necessarily French priests, but priests ordained "to exercise their ministry in France".

- At the ordination of Abbé Eric Nziraguseswa in Saint-Pierre Cathedral in Rennes, which was 3/4 empty on Sunday 30 June, many of the clergy present were Africans.

- In France there are about 100 ordinations per year compared to 600/800 deaths.

- 12 priests were ordained for apostolic communities of the Roman rite: 7 (St Pius X), 4 (Christ the High Priest) and 1 (St Peter).

- The priest ordained for Bon Pasteur is a Colombian.

- The ordination of 4 priests of the Missionaries of Divine Mercy in Toulon was blocked by Francis.

- Priests of the Roman Rite represent between 15% and 20% of all ordinations of French apostolic priests.

- There are 709 seminarians in 2024, compared to 828 in 2018.

- The figures for admissions to diocesan seminaries in France have not been available for two years.

- In the Novus Ordo there were 9 ordinations in the Communauté Saint Martin and 9 in the diocese of Fréjus-Toulon.

- Since Monsignor Touvet de facto replaced Monsignor Rey as Bishop of Fréjus-Toulon, not a single seminarian has entered the diocesan seminary this year.

- The Roman Rite seminaries are preparing for a very good start to the academic year 2024, with many new seminarians.

- A French bishop recently told a priest friend: 80% of French seminarians want to celebrate Mass in the Roman Rite.

Meanwhile Pope Francis gives a press conference today and says that Democracy is under threat in the world today. He sounds like a member of the Democratic party. I wonder if they share their talking points.

France has more SSPX locations than the US, and is only a tiny country. Unfortunately, they are flooded and being outbred by Muslims who want to kill then.
