Is the sermon given by the Opus Dei priest at the ordination available on-line? Keep up the good work. In JMJ, Chris Alferiz.

When I first heard that there was only one priest being ordained in NY, I thought for sure it was a mistake. Of course Bridgeport is suffering a drought, too..happily Hartford had 7 this year.

I think this IS, indeed, a wonderful event.
However, if the Church laments having only one seminarian actually receive Holy Orders this year, an anyone be truly surprised?

We ARE talking about New York, here.

I’ll turn 38 next month. I can’t remember any time in my lifetime–certainly not in the past 20 years–when New York and New England DIDN’T profess a view of life that not only didn’t tolerate most Catholic teaching, but has even been openly and stubbornly contemptuous of even the CONCEPT of faith. No sane person can expect that kind of regional frame of mind to fade overnight. Nor can anyone expect to see a plethora of priests flooding out of the woodwork. Not when the overall Church has become so stubbornly equivocal about being sticky about key teachings.
Archbiship Dolan cannot, in his capacity as USCCB President, cause the region to recollect its senses or cause young men to heed God’s call more quickly.

I’d like to see a whole army of priests coming from the region too. But that won’t happen if the Church, her leadership in particular, don’t make a point of being proudly and passionately Catholic.

If New York merely restates what Secretary Clinton wants to utter, I won’t waste my time.

Neither will most of the young men of the area.

We probably won’t be seeing this kind of lavish coverage in the Catholic New Yorek newspaper. Thanks, Stuart! Keep up the great work!

I took a school bus to the Eucharistic Congress in Quebec City back in June 2008. This bus was from the Peterborough diocese. I was never so impressed with all the young people aboard that bus. Their faith and sense of sacredness was very edifying to me and it gave me such hope for the future of the Church!
In particular, the seminarians who were on this bus. From the praying of the Divine Office to all the prayers that we did throughout out time together and just getting to know them and where they came from made me realize that this new crop of priests were solid, orthodox yet very faith-filled.
So it was wonderful to hear of yet another one of these men getting ordained.
Patric D’Arcy was, at the time of the Eucharistic Congress, a seminarian with the Diocese of Hamilton.
He switched to the Archdiocese of New York City.
He was a very gentle and faithful young man who quite impressed me.
I recall his love for the Extraordinary Form of the mass.
Hamilton’s loss is New York City’s gain!
God Bless you Fr. D’Arcy in your ministry!

Mr. Chessman:

I have been told, by someone who attended Fr. D’Arcy’s First Mass, that the Dunwoodie Class of 2013 — next year’s class, that is — will have three or four of its ordinands who will celebrate the EF for their First Masses.
