Pope Francis is absolutely correct, and he is right to emphasize this theme over and over again. The problem is that the diocesan Catholic school systems don't get it. If they did, poll after poll would show Catholics standing apart from the others, being in the world but not of it. Given the bleakness of polling statistics for Catholics, a total reform of Catholic education, from pre-K through university, needs to be undertaken by those competent to do so. The current crop ain't cutting it.
