Plus, for those who say the Catholic Church was "always this way"—always a nest of pedophile priests assisted by child-abusing nuns—well, here's a cultural superstar (as opposed to just another traditional Catholic, looking back through rose-colored glasses) who begs to differ, and he lived through it.
He remembers the nuns, the Latin Mass, the old days and the old ways and, according to him, it was beautiful to grow up in My (Catholic) Hometown.
As the Catholic towns of Springsteen's childhood fade into the noxious mists of a ruthless secularism, let's pray for the lost sheep who grew up in the shadow of the steeples. We'll never know how it might've been different for them had the Mass stayed the same, priests not run off by tens of thousands to get married, and the nuns not taken off their habits and walked away from their little charges.
Think of the horrific impact that must have had on children of that generation whose Catholic world blew up and who were left to face the demons of the Sexual Revolution more or less on their own!
Well played, Vatican II.
May God have mercy on all the lost sheep, us included.
