There are, I know, many Catholic couples in the US who are faithfully living out their vocations, deeply devoted to each other and to their children. (It seems appropriate to wish them all a Happy Valentine's Day!) But their love does not show through the cold statistics assembled by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) at Georgetown University in a report made public this week. The report, based on interviews with adult Catholics, shows a widespread indifference to the Church's teachings on marriage.
