Abstract: There are no nagging doubts that the Church is currently in the middle of a self-assessment process. The writing on the wall is not that rosy, with plummeting Mass attendances, spiralling numbers of marital separation cases (around 600 in the first six months of this year alone) and a general deterioration of society's moral fibre, the Church feels it should be more in sink with society. To give an example, against the sobering backdrop of over 60 per cent of Gozitan youngsters saying in a recent survey that Mass is boring, Gozo Bishop Nikol Cauchi said he believed that his priests must adopt a more modern approach to make Mass more interesting and relevant for youngsters. Such an announcement, together with other initiatives, is a harbinger of things to come.
