Vocations: a good diocese to join...
In the France of today, he is one of the finest: meet the famous Bishop Rey of Toulon, southern France. Yesterday, while in the Vatican, it was a delight to meet him and to chat for a moment.
Bishop Rey is a really nice guy and speaks fine English. He's a true leader and has the presence of an army general. His diocese is located on the French Riviera (see here: http://www.diocese-frejus-toulon.com/).
If you speak French and if it's your call, then look into joining this diocese. Lots are joining now - fine seminarians, priests and potential sisters and seminarians. Bishop Rey is a man of great vision and is open and orthodox.

I was in Frejus last July. I did not realize they had an orthodox bishop with interests in solemn liturgies. The cathedral in Frejus is pretty old, I think it may even be late Roman.
If I'm not mistaken, he erected the first personal parish for the TLM in Europe.
He reminds me of midnight oil's Peter Garrett.
