The Church is loosing 80% (80 out of every 100) of its children to the “nones” or other religions by the time they enter college. Do we really believe sending children away from Mass will fix that issue or are we just selfishly seeking our own comfort and peace of mind?
Where else but Mass will children learn how to participate in Mass? Oh, that’s right. Somehow PRP/CDC magically does that for us. Sending young parents away with small babies makes them better Catholices, doesn’t it? How absurd.
Next time you see a parent struggling to bring their children to Mass pray for them rather than criticize. The prayers will work. The criticism won’t.
