And most of these kids are involved in a parish and school with a strong Eucharistic devotion, a strong culture based around the Divine Office, and a strong devotion to Our Blessed Lady's rosary.  And let's be frank, how many Catholic schools do you see having a ton of girls dressed up as Saint Therese?  These girls have a strong foundation.  You rely on God's grace to see them through life.

Yeah many will go to college.  But contrary to popular belief you can go to college and not lose your faith.  People have a choice, they don't have to "go bad."  And if there's a strong bedrock that is inflamed with the faith, then God's grace will operate freely.  You're simply far too pessimistic.

Why aren't there so many devout Catholics now, then?

Maybe this generation will be more devout. I really don't think anything outside the Church is sustainable, precisely because the Church is the fullness of reality (Eph. 1) and one cannot avoid reality for long.

Also, college is not the end of the world. It was in college that I came back to the Church, and in college one can learn to be more faithful, precisely because there one either is really faithful or one falls into all sorts of hedonisms.

Regarding the little little flowers: they are quite cute indeed. God bless them and their families.
