Catholicism is going to be more and more popular among young people in the coming years.

In a world full of trivialities and unending change.. young people will look to places like the Church or even Islam for some sense of stability and meaning.

Quote:This young Catholic explodes the assumptions aging-liberals make about what what young Catholics want. Here is a taste:

The problem is all these pastors, youth pastors and music directors keep telling us young folk what bores us, what we really like, what we find interesting. And guess what, THEY’RE WRONG! If one listens to the young Catholic voice, one would find we are yearning for beauty, for tradition and for truth. Traditional Catholicism honestly fascinates us! We go all week hearing perky pop-songs, jumping techno and chatter that doesn’t leave a minute of silence. We go to church and we get exposed to the same exact things. Thus, of course we find it boring! Why should we go to Mass when we can stay home and sing “Gather us in”, listen to a preacher on tv and fill our rooms with noise? Young people are sick of the world. We long for a safe habitat where we can bow before God and think. We crave contact with ancientness, with a strong grounding, with strong Catholic identity. God’s people are chosen out of the world, set apart, destined for a heavenly home. We want a taste of that!!

you talk to young catholics today and it's true. they all want the tradition.. they don't want the liberal garbage. Like this kid is saying.. they can get the clown shit, techno music every day in daily life. when they go to church, they want beauty and tradition.

this is an interesting development. people should keep an eye on this. The catholic church is a world proxy for traditional values.

Quote:What young Catholics want:

First, we wouldn’t mind if you listened… Stop telling us what we think and what we like. Look at traditional Catholic parishes, they are overflowing with young people and traditional seminaries are crowded with young aspirants. The next generation wants precisely what your generation has put away and tried to hide from us. There’s a proverb: “The son longs to remember what the father longs to forget!” Remember it! We hate guitar Masses. We hate bare hymns and Masses that must be kept under 45 minutes. We want the red meat that is the 2,000 year old Catholic faith and not only that, we want to sink out teeth into it

Totally true. Quiet revolution having in academia already.. it will piss down to the general public soon!

Quote:IMO, youth actually want the harder aspects of the faith and don’t want to be patronized. Trying to be “Father cool” immediately paints you as uncool and out of touch. If you try to make mass and Catholic education hip, you’re already betraying that Catholicism has nothing to offer over secular entertainment and edumedia, and they have far larger budgets to look hip than you ever will. The youth want challenge and they want to be able to prove themselves. Give them easy to digest mush, and they’ll lose their interest. It is not at all surprising that the youth prefer TLM.

For example, the Orthodox have been extremely successful at reaching the punk culture (the last group you’d expect at a Divine Liturgy) through simply presenting the severe regimen of the monastics. An example of those efforts is the “Death to the World” (i.e. mortification) Zine ( http://deathtotheworld.com/ ) which simply presents the sayings of the desert fathers and black and white prints from monasticism.

“Young people are sick of the world.”

Too true. The papers here (Scandinavia) regularly write about how odd today’s youth is, how they have been everywhere and done everything and all they want is family and work. No wonder the Catholic Church is growing at an incredibly pace here, for of course they, today’s funny youth, also want God!

I am seeing this too.. even in China.

People are just sick of the novelty. there are only so many girls you can fuck, and so many apps you can download.
