Better adult catechesis...again

Lately I've been hearing, online and off, still more plaintive calls for "better adult catechesis." I'll say it one mo' time: The problem is not so much that they don't know as that they don't care; they'll only come to know if they care enough to learn. Here I shall add that you can't make anybody care. Some will come to care when the right questions occur to them; some, when they realize they've paid dearly for playing; some, when they finally meet someone truly holy. But all of that is grace. No program can manufacture it.
