The Church has an image problem.
Within the Church all is goodness and light.
Outside the Church the institution is bankrupt.
So, while we pat each other on the back and congratulate each other on how good we are, nothing will happen.
The Church will die.
We have to face the fact that the general public does not share our view of the Church.
The general public hates the Church.
And they actively seek its destruction.
This can be seen in the glee with which they receive each new allegation of child sex abuse and the attempts of the hierarchy to cover it up.
This is fed by dark forces in our society.
It is magnified and spread.
So, until we learn how to counter these forces, we will never be able to stop the slow death of the Church.
