Stamping it out

It looks like the effort by the North American episcopate, clergy and religious orders to destroy the Catholic faith only worked on the white people.

Oh well. I suppose they are the ones who really count, right?

Looks like the brown people didn't get the message that the Catholic religion is uncool.

A landmark study on vocations to religious institutes in the United States since 1993 has found that recent vocations are both more culturally diverse and characterized by common values, including fidelity to the Magisterium. The study, conducted by the Center for the Applied Research in the Apostolate for the National Religious Vocation Conference, found that although 94% of “finally-professed” religious are white, recent vocations are 21% Hispanic, 14% Asian or Pacific Islander, and 6% African or African American.
