According to Flanders News, the Catholic Church in Flanders is struggling to find new priests - only managing to ordain one this year.

The bit that really caught my eye, though, was this gem from Peter Vande Vyvere of Tertio: "The fact that the number of new ordinations is falling is not a disaster because the number of faithful is on the decrease too."

No worshippers, no priests. Everyone's a winner!
