More sensible Catholic commentary from the Washington Post (!)

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Sep 16, 2013

What’s happening at the Washington Post? And how can we make it happen at other American newspapers? For the 2nd time in less than a week the Post has published an eminently sensible op-ed piece about the Catholic Church. This time it’s by Georgetown undergraduate Kevin Sullivan, who points out that young Catholic Americans know very little about their faith, due to the failure of conventional approaches to religious education. Fortunately, he notes, unconventional techniques are showing greater promise. For now, however, “Millennials are are not leaving because the teachings of the Church are not ‘progressive’ enough, but because they themselves do not know the true substance of their faith.”

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    From Kevin's pen to the bishops' ears!

    Great piece of opinion indeed, but the comments published along with the article just show how poorly Jesus and his Church are understood. Not for the faint of heart!
