How to "attract" young people to Mass: STOP TRYING! (Please!)

Romano Guardin wrote Meditations Before Mass. Thomas Howard wrote If Your Mind Wanders at Mass. And Marshall McLuhan wrote The Mode in Which We Go To Mass.

This blogger engages it to reach a conclusion completely counterintuitive to the current Catholic mindset from the very top on down:
Here then, have my unauthoritative, probably-hyperbolic, unspecific but nevertheless believed and possible answer to the question of how to attract young people to the Mass: Stop trying.
