US Seminaries Lack Latin and Moral Theo Formation

The report on US seminary formation has been released.

An apostolic visitation team concluded that U.S. Catholic seminaries and houses of priestly formation are generally healthy, but recommended a stronger focus on moral theology, increased oversight of seminarians and greater involvement of diocesan bishops in the formation process."

The Vatican is generally happy, but specifically criticized the lack of Latin studies and a less-than-rigorous Moral Theo formation.

They also mentioned that there were a number of faculty members who were ambiguous about the character of the priesthood AND in moral matters.

But it's better than before...
