Well I could have said that but the publication Our Sunday Visitor has an article saying it anyway.
Catholic young people seek to usher in era of faithfulness and activism
Raised in a culture of moral relativism and individuality, today’s young Catholic generation is turning toward the faith in search of truth, purpose and a sense of belonging.
I think the part about seeking truth is the most important. There is so much relativism out there I think people are getting sick of it and saying there are truths I must find them.
Unlike their parents’ generation, studies have shown that Catholics in their late teens to mid-20s are embracing more conservative values and a greater interest in the traditional aspects of their Church.
Definitely thats me!
“Those young adults who are grounded in their faith generally are more morally and socially conservative than their peers and, frequently, than their own parents,” said Colleen Carroll Campbell…
Yes I guess compared to my friends, siblings, and others my age I am quite conservative, however, my parents and I are in agreement with the Catholic Church on thorny social issues so there`s no disagreement there.
Here is the rest of the article.
I just came across this article which I think ties in nicely with the previous article.
Thirty-year-old Mother Superior leads Australian ‘John Paul II sisters’
.- After experiencing a deep conversion, a former lawyer who had a good job and “partied a lot” is now Mother Superior of a new religious order of “John Paul II sisters” in Australia.
With two other sisters, the 30-year-old Sister Bernadette founded the Missionaries of the Gospel (MGs) in June 2007 in hopes of helping men and women “encounter Christ and live the Gospel,” their website says.
According to the West Australian, the sisters chose to wear a traditional habit and to take new names when they made their vows.
Interesting how the young nuns like an actual habit, and the orders that wear such habits have the most new vocations. Meanwhile the now elderly nuns who tossed out their habits have very few if any new vocations in their orders. By their fruits you will know them I guess.
