LOOK AT MY GENERATION, AGING BABYBOOMERS, THE YOUTH OF TODAY DON'T NEED OUR MARSHMALLOW CHURCH OF THE 1960'S WITH ITS LITURGY AND MUSIC CHANGING WITH EACH FAD--OUR YOUTH NEED DIRECTION, STABLITY AND SECURITY IN THE CHURCH, AND NOT JUST OUR YOUTH!


O joy! The Vatican is having another synod. This one is for youth.

What do our youth need today?

Stability, stability and stability. They need the sure and certain faith of the Catholic Church, not relativism.

They need discipline, structure and obedience.

They need the transcendent and a Church, from the Vaticn on down that shows in a sacramental way what the Kingdom of Heaven is and the the Glorified, Risen Person of Jesus Christ the King.

They don't need a "low Christology" of the Jesus of His public ministry. They need the high Christology of St. John's Gospel.

They need beauty too.

They don't need a liturgy that shifts with every fad and music to accompany those fads and trends. 

They need the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Faith handed on in a credible fashion.

Look at my generation who the Church tried so very hard to be relevant in the 1960's. About 12% of us still practice our faith. Thank you!

Vatican Disaster II - the gift which keeps on giving!

Fr -

Though that might be everything they need, that won't be at all what they will get.

"Good" guitar masses, mega mass jamborees, abstract art are the order of the day! That way, the Church can keep ignoring its traditions and hemorrhaging youth (who, statistically, have wholesale rejected their parents and grandparents version of the church) while joyfully exclaiming, "Its so vibrant!"

Lord help us!! Have you seen the article on Fr. Z's blog about the L.A Religious Ed conference and the "Genderbread Person" teaching aid drawing? How sick! And my pastor goes to this event each year and thinks it is a wonderful and worthwhile event. I am truly sickened that such stuff is done under the name of a Catholic Archdiocese!
