Monica Dux has written a book called Lapsed... about walking away from Catholicism, her childhood religion.
It’s a relevant story in today’s world because Catholicism in Australia has been in slow decline over the last 50 years... but at 22% of all Australians, it’s still the biggest single religion in Australia and it’s held ground much better than the Anglican Church.
It’s partly about growing up Catholic... but it’s more about why it has such a hold over people... even once they think they’ve left it behind. Losing your religion is not as easy as you think.
