Detroit is now like that as has been mentioned here before. Houses are a few to several thousand dollars. It could be a place to start. Buy two and raze the worst and grow crops on that one. You could sell the excess. Work any jobs. Fix the better house as you go. Scavenge for stuff, fix it, and sell it to your neighbors. Gird your loins and let your light shine forth. Ten Catholics with small money could buy both sides of a city block, raze the bad houses and grow food become a co-op and sell the rest. Imagine a Catholic oasis in a sea of mire shining a light for others to come.

Until such an ideal could even be started, we should in the meantime enthrone the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts of Jesus and Mary in our homes, inviting friends and family, that they might be inspired to do the same. That will help with the being "leaven for society" part.

Trad Cath you bet. Start with the Consecration of that city block to The Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Sounds like a great idea except for one thing.  I really don't like Catholics that much.  :shrug:

So you don't like yourself, either?  :laughing:
