Michael Matt's latest video tells us the reality of the Catholic Church today and I think you should hear him. During the last half a century or so, the Church has been influenced and weakened by the world that the younger Catholics no longer know what the traditional Church was like (very much like the Chinese people under 40 or so who have no idea about the 1966-1976 Cultural Revolution that took place in their country.) I cannot recall ever hearing the word "hell" in any homily as if it does not exist. The word "sin" maybe, but not to make us feel how horrible it is to offend God. It's more important for priests not to offend his audience than to defend God. We have lost the glory, the dedication, the spirit, and the courage to tell the truth of our Catholic faith. Evil has so deeply infiltrated the Church and deceived her members that it would take a thorough cleansing to restore it.
