Young at heart

Rorate Caeli has this picture and a link to the FSSP website of the priests of the fraternity gathering in Bavaria.  The average age of priests in the fraternity is 37 - a far cry from the the UK in general, where the average age is somewhere around 60+.  The FSSP also have 150 seminarians, mostly men in their 20's.

Fr Ray Blake and a number of others have pointed out the excruciatingly embarrassing scene below as one probably not likely to attract young people to the Church.  

I know where I'd rather be!

They have obviously been taking advice given in the last pop video they watched when Jimmy Durante says,
"Folks, in the entertainment business - try to keep in the swing."
Though even this video is more swinging than the good bishops!
