What is faith? Faith is, in my view, a form of happiness.
So the lack of faith in the Western world is a reflection of a loss of happiness and religious faith.
How do we stem the flow of those who are losing their faith or happiness and direct them back into the Church? How do we restore happiness in society?
The answer can only be that we organise politically to effect change. The Church should not be on its own in this endeavour.
Ireland is as good as any country to begin what could be a modern-day 'velvet revolution'. It is very much needed, in my view.
