Falling Away.

Why has there been a falling away from the practice of the Faith? There is no easy answer to this. However, I don't think it is because the Faith is too hard and unyielding. Rather it is because we have made things too easy. We have lowered the benchmarks so far as to make it appear that the Faith is of little importance. Some minor examples are the Communion fast and days of penance. “What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods." (It appeals to my sense of humor to quote the atheist Paine in support of the Faith.)
