He elsewhere elaborated.
Listecki made it clear that he wants to win back followers. To do so, he hopes to "tell the story" about good things being done in the archdiocese, which represents some 640,000 Catholics.Presumably this will be tweaked away from this works-righteousness form.
"A lot of the data coming back says they've just grown apart from (church)," Listecki said. "They've stopped going to church, stopped participating in a religious community or parish and have kind of grown into that complacency in relationship to God."So it isn't entirely the laity's fault; it's also society's fault.
He attributes that to the grown [sic] secular nature of society, an issue he addressed during his first homily.
P.S. From the St. Al's bulletin: Mass Is Boring? Your fault.
