    Is Church vs. Science really the issue? No. The issue is poor music, lack of community, bad liturgy and bad faith formation. Though I agree that the suggestions above are indeed fantastic, we need to go a little deeper than that. Any knowledgeable young Catholic would scoff at the idea of science being in conflict with religion. The real problem in our day is that the Church is in conflict with its own identity. This is the crux of the problem – if the Church does not know who She is, and if clergy continue to disobey even basic doctrine and liturgical rubrics (either or both), is there any surprise that young people are leaving in droves? Why do you think there is a priest crises in the normative seminaries, while traditional vocations are booming? Its not rocket science :)
