Good article and I'm right there with you. Our priest gave out Matthew Kelly's book, "The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic" to the whole parish and we are seeing more participation. We have got to have a stronger more vibrant church with people who are engaged.

The pope has renounced the papal throne. Long live the progressive pope! Such are the rallying cries from establishment voices wanting to see the Catholic Church loosen up now that Pope Benedict XVI has decided to step down. But maybe people should listen to the Church's actual views.

Mary Hasson from the Ethics and Public Policy Center has been doing some unique work looking into what Catholic women know and want from their Church. It's scandalous and yet not entirely surprising that she found only 13 percent of Catholic women who occasionally attend Mass accept Church teaching on contraception.

It's not a shock...
