A Catholic 2030, Revisited
Fr. C.J. McCloskey, Catholic Thing
Back in the great Jubilee year 2000, I published a long article in the Catholic World Report entitled "2030: Looking Backward." It is a fictional piece in which a Catholic priest (my alter ego) reflects on the history of the Church (especially recent history), with an emphasis on the United States.
I - or perhaps my thesis - received quite a bit of vitriolic criticism from the elite mainstream media and even from the late Tim Russert on Meet the Press. A goodly number of faithful Catholic writers also found it dark and threatening, however, although I had intended it to be positive and optimistic. Take a look here and see what you think.
