The Faith is Growing

So says Dave Hartline, a former Catholic School principal and teacher, who makes this bold (yet true) statement in his new book: "The Tide is Turning Toward Catholicism."

The book discusses what Hartline calls an under-the-radar resurgence, referring
to statistics such as an increase in the amount of men interested in entering
the seminary and becoming priests. He said more people are embracing the
traditions of the Catholic church, but what often makes the papers is scandal
and bad news about cases of clergy sexually abusing young parishioners.

He backs this up by citing examples and by exploring what is drawing people back to the faith: their search for answers.

When you give people the Truth, they will know it in their hearts and respond to the invitation by God. Let’s help this renaissance by living the Truth of the Gospel in a dynamic way.
