The exposed Sacrament and vocations

In the comment box directly below this post, commenter Dani writes, in part:

This is also one of only two churches in our area that has Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. The Catholic church would be so blest with vocations if only we would once again delight in this form of adoration.

Do you have access to the Exposed Blessed Sacrament, along with the Exposition rite, prolonged time (at least 3 hours) for Adoration, and Benediction?

Whether you do or not, do you think that an increase in this practice would foster more vocations?

Wait a sec...parenthetical comment coming up!!!

(By "vocations," I mean "true vocations to the Roman Catholic priesthood." I do not mean, at this time, what I often hear what my fellow worshippers and I hear during the Sunday Prayers of the Faithful, to wit: "For an increase of vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, religious and lay ministries of the Church"...not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Sorry for the interupption. Anyway, if you do or don't think it would make any difference in priestly vocations, will you try and explain why, or why not?
