Father, the Church needs young people more than ever. This generation is intelligent, has access to Internet on telephones, views 3D video games and movies, et al. If you want to enforce St. John Chrysostom's edicts against abortion, you'll be celebrating Liturgy by yourself in a decade. What is wrong with embracing the young and encouraging them to live holy and pure lives and help them develop their own fear of God.
I want to offer something pragmatic and pastoral from our experience in our parishes over the last 15 years.
During the time of high immigration from about 1993 to 1999 our parish received over 200 families from the old Soviet Union.
Our other parishes in the country received the same and more.
We imported from Russia many many small books and pamphlets to help these people start to slake their thirst for a better understanding of their faith.
One of the items which we imported, really by accident, the "Akathist for Those Who have had an Abortion."
All of the Akathists were taken within two Sundays.
So we ordered several dozen more.... they too were taken in a flash.
Then women started appearing to dicuss with the clergy the abortions they had had back in the Soviet Union.
Repentance and warm heartfelt tears became the order of the day.
None of this was done by harsh condemnation. The grace of the Holy Spirit touched the souls of these women as they read the Akathist. What they read met a deep need in them to come to terms with their abortions and with the children they had aborted. The women were unblocked in their spiritial lives. In the Church they found their place of healing.
Some here may decry this as emotionalism, buit they would be ignorant of what took place in these women's lives.
