What’s the state of our young Catholics?


Aren’t today’s young people incapable of embracing Catholicism? Rather than attend Sunday Mass, they’d prefer sleeping in after a rambunctious night of Saturday debauchery. On voting days, they opt for abortion, gay marriage, and then proceed to the nearest drug store for their regular contraceptive purchases. The Catholic Church is run by old, celibate men who are irrelevant to contemporary youth.

Well, the world would have you believe all of that.

A couple of days ago, Pope Benedict XVI quickly passed through a Madrid street in his ‘Popemobile’ for a few seconds, and a crowd of young pilgrims was there. How did they react?

See for yourself:

Don’t let anyone tell you the youth aren’t excited by Catholicism.
