Martin's wise observation

"... there are signs within the Catholic Church that some - even young people - are seeking refuge from the challenges of life by adapting ways of the past and are retreating from dialogue with the present into the false security of imaginary better times. Conformist Catholicism is not the answer."

The Catholic Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin.

Might it be that the archbishop has seen and heard a thing or two?

Do you know what he means with 'adapting ways of the past'? What's his idea of 'none conformist Catholicism'?

I believe I do. But not for me to speak on behalf of the archbishop. Why not write and ask him?
