The good news? Christ reigns! The bad news? Almost nobody cares!
These statistics are not new, but easy to forget if you belong to the sherry hour set following Mass at St. Metropolitan parish or have a steady diet of Marty Haugen's "Gather Us In" at St. Care Bear's in the suburbs. Reality is like a bracing tonic or a dallop of wasabi you mistake for guacamole. It may nearly blow your head off, but, hey: you're suddenly quite awake.
