What Has Changed in Catholic Culture?

I read a post today about the restoration of Catholic culture, which began with a quote from Pope John Paul II. “A faith that fails to become a culture is not an authentic faith.” The post went on to talk about how Catholicism has become less of a culture in America recently. America’s culture has become based around greed, money, and a lot of atheism.

The main issue that this post pointed out was the urban lifestyle that so many city dwellers have taken up. However, I see this as a challenge. The challenge is to strengthen our faith enough to change our environment, not the other way around. I don’t see the problem as the city lifestyle, but the lifestyle of people in general. The best thing you can do to change this is to live your life in a way that Christ would approve of. Hopefully your good actions will have an effect on others.
