Special Report: Devil in Rome premieres Monday, Aug. 22 at 8 PM ET
Before we begin with today's topic, we'd like to invite you to a live chat we will be producing this coming Friday immediately following Evening News on the question of the legitimacy of the pontificate of Jorge Bergoglio.
We'll be addressing:
Again, that's live this Friday, immediately following Church Militant Evening News.
Now to today's topic — Catholic youth. The numbers of Catholics under 30 who have simply walked away from the Church are staggering.
While there are a multitude of reasons, the bottom line is just that, and the implications are crippling. This is now the fourth generation who have been deprived of the authentic Faith, and sociologists mark that data point as significant — the point at which whatever went before simply evaporates.
That's why here at Church Militant, we are constantly looking to cultivate youth. And a good portion of the apostolate is, in fact, young. Of the 63 current employees here at Church Militant, 24 are under 30.
While the abandoning of the Faith by youth in the wider Church of Nice is staggering, the opposite is true here — intensely committed young men and women are going against every societal trend.
We thought it would be inspiring for you to hear from them yourselves. So meet some of the members of the Church Militant youth movement.
