Being Catholic is hard
#10
In America, I think one issue with how things in the modern day are how towns are constructed. The push of people moving to suburbs with large properties and everything spread out moved people further and further away from central locations. Many suburbs that are closer to major cities were still compact and allowed for people to walk everywhere necessarily for their daily life. As the automobile became more common, the sprawling out of populations became more common. There's a huge difference between a town where you can walk to the nearest church within a few minutes vs. one where you need to get in your car and drive 10+ minutes to get to a church. In the latter case someone may not be as willing to go to church at random times throughout the day to pray or take part in various activities. Instead, you have more and more people who only go for Mass and that's it.
