To be honest with you, I like what is in this video and what is proclaimed is why I am and remain Catholic. But as I look at it, it is self-referential. Is this kind of video of the past effective in bringing back fallen away Catholics? The nones? I wonder.
This newer version is self-referential in a different way. It is a soundbite compared to the much longer and more thorough bad old version above. Is this a better self-referential, triumphalist soundbite and its it better to be short given today's short attention span?
I know, I know, tolerance and inclusive have many meanings. But the Church has always included some of the most despicable people. Private excommunications, such as for abortion and profaning the Blessed Sacrament are still in force even if no one publicly knows you've done these things. Excommunications abound even under Pope Francis and he hasn't lifted public excommunications for priests who attend women's "ordination" rites.
Doesn't this speak to the younger generations of nones better than the first bad old version of the past?
