Though Catholicism in America is on the decline, some of the faithful are still fighting.
Established in 2018, the Colorado-based lay apostolate has been endorsed by Abp. Samuel Aquila of Denver, Abp. Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, Bp. Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas and others.
Roerty's apostolate provides practical interior training for individuals and groups with the goal of renewing the Catholic Church.
Likewise, just over six in 10 Catholics (61%) support so-called same-sex marriage.
Close to six in 10 (56%) of Catholics say abortion should be legal in all or most cases.
A big reason for these statistics is the lack of teaching from Catholic parents, priests and educators.
Not only is poor catechesis far from Tradition, so too is the norm for how the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is celebrated.
So-called eucharistic ministers, Communion distributed in the hand, priests facing the people, guitars replacing organs, the abandonment of Latin and Gregorian Chant; these all too common sights draw attention away from the meaning of the Mass.
Bishop Strickland, a conference formator for SOCA, says of the new and growing movement: "Our modern world is starving for the food that nurtures the very core of our life as children of God. The Church is getting battered as we're scurrying around trying to fix this justice issue and that .. all while not plugging into the power base which is Christ! The Souls of the [Christian] Apostolate is essential for changing our world."
