Young adults are immersed in a world governed by market forces, such that the main challenge of the Church is to bridge the world of market forces-economics-and the world opened up by faith.
Seeds of Hope asks what kind of Church we are inviting young people to join and then analyzes the contemporary social and spiritual landscapes in search of signs of hope for the future of the Church.
Examining the best sociological reflection, including current data about young Hispanics in the United States, this book examines five key areas of concern: theology, ecumenism, liturgy, spirituality, and moral authority. It attempts both to understand the challenges facing young adults in these areas and to offer constructive proposals for how all Catholics-laity and clergy-can respond to this important group.
The presence of young Catholics in our churches will help move the Church forward through its current struggles by returning to the most basic elements of the faith tradition and by being: Attentive to the post-Vatican II Church, Theologically grounded, Inclusive of all racial groups within the Church, Hopeful and not overly critical.
