There are 22,193,347 "Catholics" in Germany, which corresponds to 26.7% of the population.
The data refers to the year 2020 and appeared in statistics published by the German Bishops' Conference.
The "Catholics" are served by 12,565 priests (2019: 12,983). In 2020, there were only 67 priestly ordinations (56: diocesan priests; 11: religious priests).
Attendance at religious services fell to 5.9% (2019: 9.1%), as did the number of marriages (11,018; 2019: 38,537), baptisms (104,610; 2019: 159,043), first communions (139,752; 2019: 166,481). 221,390 persons left the Church (2019: 272,771). In contrast, burials increased by 2,609 to 236,546.
Welcome to Francis' "Church"!
Why bother going to church when you can get the same effluent from CNN sitting at home in your underwear?
Its not St. John Paul’s Church anymore. I am starting to believe this Francis fellow was the one people have warned us about. Russians may have been right about that Third Rome Thing—The Russians may have to save Europe for Christ.
Pope Francis make some people feel that the Second Coming is just around the corner and it won’t be any fun.
Marxism is the alpha omega to all Marxists. There is no higher power or higher calling than to promote marxism. Pope Marx I has demonstrated this time and time again. God, Jesus, the Catholic Church, and all its history is simply a tool to expand Marxism. “But he carried his own bags” they cried.
