Pew says we’re an outlier compared to Italy, the UK, and other European countries. I’m fine with that, as a piece of information.
What it means is that evangelization in North America is on the people, not the pope. Not the bishops, either.
It’s as simple as inviting a person back to church. Suggest going to Mass then going out to Saturday dinner or Sunday brunch with a friend or neighbor.
It doesn’t have to be Mass, if your parish has good weeknight programming: a concert, a speaker, or a social event, ideally. The other parish in my city has a couples’ night every month or so. I’d think about inviting another couple for a double date thing.
The role of the pope isn’t to do it all for us. I’m just happy we have someone who won’t be an obstacle for evangelization.
