“Christianity is a dying relic of an ancient past. The Internet is killing it. Science is killing it. Western sophistication is killing it. Right?
“Wrong. In many ways, Christianity is on the rise as never before—worldwide, and in America. Here are the ways we can tell:
1. Christianity is growing by leaps and bounds worldwide
2. Nominal Christianity is Dead, and that is a good thing
3. The Church is promoting the sacraments
5. Catholic youth movements have never been stronger
6. …and the Catholic Youth Movements are linked to higher education
7. New, young vocations
9. A new interest in Scripture
10. The witness of the martyrs”
