Now if I tell you that you suffer from delusions
Among my affectations is a mild disquiet over prayers for "vocations to the priesthood and religious life" during the General Intercessions. Yes, by all means let us pray for religious vocations.

For that matter, how many religious vocations can we expect without healthy marital vocations?
