Abp. Dolan - Difficulties of the Church Today

Archbishop Timothy Dolan outlines the challenges the church is faced with today.
They are 4 fold in his assessment:
1) the vocation to marriage
2) the state of Catholic parishes and schools
3) the great number of lapsed Catholics
4) the difficulties in a culture desperate to keep the Church and morals out of the public square

“Oh, there’s tons of challenges, my Lord, there’s never any dearth of challenges,” the archbishop began, explaining that the basic challenge for all Catholics is the same one that Jesus gave on Pentecost Sunday: “Go out to the world and preach the Gospel.”
