My humble understanding of Catholics is that most of them do not attend church with any regularity. Maybe the govt-imposed shut-down increased a desire to attend, like saying to someone, don't think about pink panthers, and all they can do is think about pink panthers. And there will always be the very religious elderly folk who will seek out the customary. It is like children who like to hear the same bed-time story repeated to them night after night. Elderly folk might say, after so many years, I have found what I like and I don't want to try new things in search of something I might like. "Better to like what you have than to go out seeking after something different that you might not like" (oops, that just explained why blacks have been voting for Democrats the past 50 yrs or so, with no real results; and the appeal of "Give Me That Old Time Religion")
I have seen news of Catholic churches in many parts of the USA holding services already, and a friend tells me a Hispanic Baptist church near him had a grand re-opening service today.
I wonder how the shut-down will change the local church? What do you think?
