The Ins and Outs of Catholic Culture Today: A List

At the beginning of every year, the Washington Post publishes “The List.” The List is a pop culture guide to what is “in” and what is “out” in the new year. To get the most benefit from The List, it helps to have some degree of cultural “wokeness.” I wondered what a such a list for Catholic culture might look like. This is what I came up with.

Should we even be talking about “Catholic culture”? Does not Catholicism, with its beliefs and moral requirements, exist outside of, and exert an influence on, all worldly cultures, without itself being just another culture? The reality is, however, that those presently in control of the institutional Catholic Church have lost sight of, or deliberately blurred, this distinction. The evidence for this argument is all around. The above list is only some of it.
