The Tablet's series on Britan's Catholics

The first one, "Once a Catholic" tackles the question of why Catholics are leaving the Church.

The second one, "Returning to the fold" highlights efforts to welcome those who're coming back.

With the promise of more to come!

I think sometimes we in the US can get a little self-congratulatory. "At least we're not quite badly off as those across the pond!" Hogwash. While it's true that there is indeed an "American exceptionalism" when it comes to religion and religious practice, it's hardly something one ought to just take for granted. Besides, the Lord's mandate to evangelize is as valid and urgent here, as it is over there.
