Resolutions from 1908

Resolution 4

Whereas, in view of the serious decline in the number of candidates for Holy Orders, it is clear that some do not recognise that call and others are either unwilling or unable to offer themselves for the ministry, we recommend that Christian parents be urged to encourage signs of vocation in their sons, and to count it a privilege to dedicate them for the ministry, and parish priests and teachers in schools and universities to foster such vocations.
