Last week, a Catholic man in Malta, told me that he foresees the day in the near-ish future, when churches will be closing here.
The average age of those attending daily Mass is older than I am. Sadly, and there are Masses almost every hour up until 1:00 in the afternoon.
But, the problem has been caused by the Maltese themselves--contraception.
Immigrants flooding in are mostly non-Catholics. This is obvious.
That immigration has undone what the Siege of Malta succeeded in doing is too sad for words.
Catholics have only themselves to blame for closing churches.
It will happen here, as in other places across the West.
