The following is the text from the video.
Think about these two realities that we face as a modern day society. The first reality concerns current religious data. Worldwide in 2010, an average of 41,000 people were born into or entered the Catholic Church – every single day. However during that same year, 11.6 million Christians across the globe abandoned their faith. In America today, the fastest growing religious “denomination” in the United States is “unaffiliated.” Nearly half of all cradle Catholics who become unaffiliated leave the Church altogether by the age of 18. Overall, 53% of American adults have left the faith of their childhood. For many of you, I know your heart breaks because your children or grandchildren do not practice their Catholic faith or because they have left the Church altogether.
The second reality we face as a society concerns what our children are exposed to at a younger age. With the growing influence of the internet because of easy access to it and because of what is available on it, children today are exposed to things that most of us never had to experience at a younger age, and they are being influenced by what they see and hear. For all of us, this should be a major concern.
