God Is Sick of Them: Francis' Model Church Reduced to a Pile of Rubble

There are 22,193,347 "Catholics" in Germany, which corresponds to 26.7% of the population.

The data refers to the year 2020 and appeared in statistics published by the German Bishops' Conference.

The "Catholics" are served by 12,565 priests (2019: 12,983). In 2020, there were only 67 priestly ordinations (56: diocesan priests; 11: religious priests).

Attendance at religious services fell to 5.9% (2019: 9.1%), as did the number of marriages (11,018; 2019: 38,537), baptisms (104,610; 2019: 159,043), first communions (139,752; 2019: 166,481). 221,390 persons left the Church (2019: 272,771). In contrast, burials increased by 2,609 to 236,546.

Anyone else in awe of the magnificent crucifix behind the celebrant? Truly an inspiring reflection of the German Church's embodiment of Catholic tradition.

blessings of the Lord on Saint Jean Marie's feastday!

Is this part of the promised Springtime of the Church??

And yet German bishops insist on lecturing on how to evangelize and run a church. It's like if a branch manager who lost 50% of his market share during his tenure tried lecturing you on sales. The German bishops and that failed generation of priests are a confederacy of failures.
Father John Matthew Duffy
What is “toxic” is the attack against Truth of Jesus Christ and His Gospel.
Do you not find it odd that Pope Francis does not consider it “toxic” to enthrone demonesses and triumphantly fly sodomite flags at Mass ?

Stop state funding of churches. The billions given to the German bishops didn't help them, it corrupted them.
Father John Matthew Duffy
Yes.
Dr Bobus
The problem isn't money. It is German lust for power.

But what about the "toxic rhetoric against Vatican 2 and the Pope himself that was coming from American Catholics? Surely this is a bigger problem than national apostasy. Traditionis Custodes was required to correct this "toxic rhetoric".
Dr Bobus
A poll last year said only about 1/3 of Catholics regularly attending Mass believe in Transubstantiation. That indicates that toxic rhetoric is not the problem but a lack of faith.

What has Francis done to address this problem? Do you think that Pachamama will help?

In Germany, under 6% of Catholics now go to Mass — but eliminating Summorum was the priority…

These are the fruits of Vatican 2?

Geweldig, hoe minder Rooms Katholieken lid zijn van de Rooms Katholieke kerk, hoe eerder de, al zestig jaar durende, crisis in de Rooms Katholieke kerk voorbij is.
