I agree with this.

The same could be applied to my motherland, the Philippines, one of the only two Catholic nations in Asia. Enduring almost yearly destructive typhoons and a majoirty of its people in abject poverty, one sometimes wonders why in comparison to its secular neigbors the Philippines is always suffering the most. Even it may just be the Novus Ordo, the vast majority of Filipinos in the Philippines have kept the faith and for the most part attend  Mass, unlike many Irish who have lost any faith whatsoever. The old adage that suffering brings one closer to God applies then.

There is a lot of piety, but doctrinally the country is a wasteland. The enemies are also advancing on morality.
