Why Younger Generations Are Embracing Traditional Catholicism

The Church is enduring one of the worst crises in her history. There has been a collapse in the number of laity, clergy, and religious participating in the Catholic faith. According to the Index of Leading Catholic Indicators: The Church Since Vatican II, approximately 460 million Catholics have left the Faith since Vatican II. Not only is there a crisis in participation, there are a plethora of surveys which reveal the extent of heterodox teachings in the modern United States Church.

Despite this rapid decline in Catholic demographics, there is hope. A recent study conducted by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter found that while Novus Ordo (that is, the 1969 Mass of Pope Paul VI) parishes have been shrinking, parishes that offer the Latin Mass have been growing. Another study conducted by Dr. Joseph Shaw found that the average traditional parish has larger family sizes, younger attendees, and higher male attendance. What is the explanation for this?

In Ever Ancient, Ever New, millennials enthralled with the traditional devotions of our Faith which have been left largely abandoned since Vatican II explain this phenomenon. These authors include Alexander Tschugguel, Stephanie Nicholas, as well as Timothy, and Stephanie Gordon.

Ever Ancient, Ever New offers the path forward for the Church's future: her past.

Editorial Reviews

Stories sell. This book is like the Surprised By Truth series for the traditional Latin Mass. Some people do not understand why younger generations are drawn to the Church's rich liturgy and traditional practices. But when you hear their passion and excitement, you also want to experience it personally.
- Steve Cunningham, founder of Sensus Fidelium

"In this book, David Dashiell unearths the pearl of great price found in traditional Catholic life and liturgy."
- Dr. Michal l Sirilla, author of The Ideal Bishop.

" Ever Ancient, Ever New demonstrates the love for Catholic Tradition growing in the hearts of young Catholics around the world. Far from nostalgia, this love, particularly for the traditional Latin Mass, reveals the deep roots of our faith that have been covered over in many corners of the Church today. It is my prayer that Ever Ancient, Ever New will further this movement of both young and old to the beautiful treasures of the Catholic Faith. "
- Eric Sammons, Editor-in-Chief, Crisis Magazine

"This book allows you to go beyond the stereotypes and online posts to see the Faith as it is practiced by real people today. It provides a compelling case for traditional Catholicism, the Latin Mass, and why young people are striving to embrace the Faith as in ages past."
--Cameron O'Hearn, Director of the Mass of the Ages.
