"Two important religious events happened last week. Oct. 11 marked the 50th anniversary of the opening session of the Second Vatican Council, which has changed not only the Catholic Church but also its relationship to others churches and to the world.
Simultaneously, an extensive new survey by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life explored the religious changes taking place in the U.S. population.
Among Americans ages 18-29, one-in-four said they were not currently associated with any particular religion. Is this good news or bad news? Is religion growing or dying?
What both the Vatican II and the Pew Survey on Religion pointed out is that people are primarily seeking spirituality."
