Pre-Cana, American Edition

A couple of days ago, Deacon Greg lamented the current state of affairs when it comes to Catholics preparing for the Sacrament of Matrimony. I came across this video that I think goes a long way to explaining how we arrived at that state. It is a bit on the long side (nearly 15 minutes), but makes an important point in a funny way.

Simply providing more instruction on the sacrament is not the answer. The problem is much deeper than a lack of knowledge. I think we need to reintroduce nearly an entire Church to the concept of marriage as a vocation. So the question really is, how the heck do we do that?
