Williams illustrates the decline with telling data exhibiting the stark distinction among the powerful variety of clergy contributors, parishes, faculties, and energetic church-going Catholics in 1965 as opposed to the relatively paltry quantity this present day.

The writer is very severe of Popes Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis for guiding the church to this point clear of its conventional teachings and for an absence of oversight that allowed corruption to fester. Symptomatic of this failure of management are the hot pedophilia scandals, the continuing monetary corruption, a homosexual prostitution ring contained in the Vatican, and legal investigations of connections among the Holy See and arranged crime.

This unflinching critique from a loyal, lifelong Catholic is a wakeup name to all Catholics to revive their church to its former degrees of ethical management and influence.
