The new Vatican office is charged with coordinating plans to renew the vigor of the faith in regions where it was once dominant, but has lost ground to the forces of secularization—notably Europe and North America.
Pope Benedict observes that the “phenomenon of abandonment of the faith” has “become progressively more evident in societies and cultures that were, for centuries, impregnated with the Gospel.
“God and Country are an unbeatable team; they break all records for oppression and bloodshed” Luis Buñuel. Quoted in The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.

"...find adequate ways to renew her announcement to many baptised people who no longer understand what it means to belong to the Christian community...." Because we knew what we were getting into when we were baptised.

"...victims of the subjectivism of our times with its closure in an individualism that often lacks public and social responsibility." We're being subjected to and are victims of being individuals. Social responsibility? Turning a blind eye to paedos....
You can lead a fool to wisdom but you cant make him think.
