Focus is on Spirituality, not Religion especially religious structures/institutions today

"William  D'Antonio, a Catholic sociologist said that the percentage of Catholics who say they are "religious" has dropped from 74 to 60 percent in just the past five years.
"It's more than semantics. {Decades agao} we really, really believed if you didn't go to Mass , you'd go to hell. There was a belief that the church had a structure that would get you to heaven if you followed the rules... Now more and more people look to their conscience, however, its's formed, to decide for themselves." Washington Post article on "religion" by Michelle  Boorstein, July 13, 2013
