The Catholic Church: Fractions and Multiples

We have today a fraction of the churches we had before the “liturgical reforms”;
a fraction of the seminaries; a fraction of the priests, and a fraction of the religious; a fraction of the baptisms, marriages, funerals. We have huge multiples of the annulments, the contraceptions and abortions. Where three in four Catholics attended Sunday Mass, in the 1950s, it is now less than one in four. And even among those who attend, there has been a terrible lapse in obedience and discipline. Our remaining priests and religious are mostly quite old; their congregations, too, are aging; and within less than one generation at the present pace, the Catholic faith will be, truly, the Church Invisible. What must we do? :David Warren

I suggest prayer.

The body is the temple of god and last I heard there was no population decline, so what's up?

With all the TV church shows the church has now moved into the living room, so what's the problem?
