This NCR profile on twenty-something Catholics was much more interesting than the same issue’s musings on the politics of liturgy. I just don’t see this kind of searching on some of the more typical conservative web pages, just essays about dead guys–though good dead guys. Perhaps some of you more critical readers have experiences otherwise. I’d love to have some of these “Millennials” as parishioners, and I wonder about ways to attract them to the fold. I can’t escape the notion that many “orthodox” Catholics are just waiting for such folks to darken their doorsteps, like it was some kind of entitlement to fill their pews. Instead, this is clearly a matter of trust to be earned.
