They will when they need to...
Fr. Z has a post up.
It's interesting. The blame seems to be placed upon all the abuses generated by the Novus Ordo - leading to the marketable conclusion: Save the liturgy, save the world.
That's an idea!
But are men ever asked why they don't go to Mass or participate in church related activities outside of a Wiffle Ball Tournament? Are their wives ever asked?
I know some guys.
I'll list a few reasons I've heard.
Oddly enough, that's a real question. The men work - more often than not, the wife does too. They share housework, yard work, chauffeuring kids to various activities and events and are too tired to be bothered. They are 'spiritual' and they make it to Mass on Sunday, they tithe and donate - they may even show up for donuts and coffee if they have kids in the parish school. If they are really generous, they may even volunteer for the parish festival. But that's a lot. Men do more family-wise than men of former generations, they play with the kids, take them to the park - they do a lot. Church isn't a priority.
"The sex scandal."
Like it or not, that's still a big one. Men hold back donations and don't want to go to Mass because of it. This takes us back to, "What for?" Not a few lost what trust they had in the clergy.
"All they want is money."
Because that is what it often sounds like. Special collections for this and that and weekly collections ... This takes us back to "What for?" and "They lost what trust they had in the clergy." They've also gone through too many remodels. Then there are "priests online" who always seem to be upping their donation goal meter. It's a pattern.
"Too many women involved. Too many women running things."
Women with degrees. They are everywhere - frequently religious women are indistinguishable from lay women. Paid staff demands volunteer staff to direct. They also need men to do the hard stuff - but the woman is in charge. Kinda/sorta. Women and men like them isn't a big draw for guys - unless dad still has kids in school and is required to participate in certain activities. Church ladies can be loquacious. Loquaciousness leads to gossip, complaining, rivalry and so on. Men do that too of course - but it's different - unless they've already been feminized."Church is a woman's thing."
The Liturgy and the homily.
Review all of the above. Read: Banal? Boring? Just doesn't 'feel' holy? Maybe. So I think I can agree with Fr. Z to some extent. Nevertheless - it can't be just that. There is nothing wrong with the Ordinary Form properly celebrated, and there is nothing boring, nothing missing from the simplest Mass - men in the armed forces can attest to that.
Guys may not say that it is secularism, but they will point out that you can do other things and still be a good person. You can donate to charities, volunteer elsewhere; such as non-denominational/non-religious/non-profit organizations. If you live a good life, help others, believe in God or some higher power, recycle and strive to live a green life - doing no harm to others - that's pretty good. It's totally spiritual - and it's God-like.
Go out to meet them where they are.
