Father Giovanni Cucci writes in La Civiltà Cattolica (July 17) that there has been an “impressive increase” in suicides among priests in Brazil. 17 priests killed themselves in 2018, and 10 more in 2021.
A French priest participating in Cucci's survey, "confessed that he was not the shepherd with the smell of the sheep, but with the smell of petrol” – because he spends long hours in the car driving to his parishes.
Many Novus Ordo priests feel that they provide aseptic services to indifferent faithful.
His ministry must be more difficult with an apostate 'Pope' and a Bergolgian bishop
Let's pray for them
