Who Will Labor in the Vineyard? The New Catholic Mentality and Religious Commitment
Journal of Religion and Society
This paper explores the origins of a new Catholic mentality, marked by low levels of commitment to, but not complete disengagement from, the religious tradition. This poses challenges for the vitality of many Church sponsored institutions, especially in countries which share a Western culture. The paper focuses on better understanding the lack of strong commitment amongst younger Catholics and points to changes in socialization and the rise of personal spiritualities as key explanatory factors.fatcat:3bbnajpo6bca3jjmykw54w6geu
