Fr. Barron on "dumbed down" Catholicism

If only a priest had talked like this back in the 70's when I was getting the, "My butterfly and me" version of Catholicism. 

Watch this clip, especially the ending. 

EDIT June 15: I just learned that Fr. Barron has a website.  Check out Word on Fire.

Te Deum Laudamus! Home
The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church; it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!

As usual, good point, Fr. Barron. Give us some meat and potatoes and get rid of the baby formula!

Dumbing down in my religion is everywhere. In local high school quiz contests, there are no Catholic schools in the finals. When I was a kid the "Catholic kids" had it all over the others. I quit going to the V2 mass-everytime the priest said Through Him. And WITH Him. And IN Him, I was transported right to Sesame Street. Who is responsible?
