Interesting statistics of the life of the Catholic faith

The New Advent blog has posted an article linking to a comprehensive list of Church statistics. It is worth noting that whereas the media would have us believe that the Church is in severe decline as evidenced by the declining numbers of priests, the actual truth is that priest numbers have steady increased since 1985.

To apply the wisdom of Mark Twain, the reports of the death of the church are greatly exaggerated.


  1. Most people forget that the Catholic Church is slightly bigger than what they can see from their own front porch. Nothing highlights this so much as the fact that third world countries are sending missionaries to Canada.

  2. Personally, when it comes to statistics, I'm in absolute agreement with Disraeli!
