It seems everyone today tries to appease everyone else. Ideologies are easily set aside in order to accomodate everybody's belief, right to believe it, right to practice it and right to uphold it. Every belief that is, except one, (drum roll,.....) CHRISTIANITY!!!! In particular the Catholic Church. At almost every turn, there seems to be an attack, only these 'attacks' are not from an external source. (Yes, Satan if you really look to the absolute real source...) These attacks come from entities operating under the guise of so-called progressive 'catholicism' such as 'Call to Action,' 'Development and Peace,' and 'Voice of the Faithful.' They also come from ideological movements such as Liberation Theology. Think critically my friends, and look at the latest stuff happening. Fr Frank Pavone, accused of financial irreguliarities while directing 'Priests For Life.' His Bishop, Patrick Zurek has assigned him a convent where he continues his ministry. He has appealed to the Vatican which is his right to do so. He has always been a priest in good standing. Next up, we have the whole Fr Corapi/Blacksheepdog mess. Yes, since the new year, the website has disappeared, nevertheless, Fr Corapi's talks worldwide have brought Catholics back to their faith with enthusiasm and downright gusto! Satan definetly saw him as a target.
The most recent one, deserves its own paragraph. Michael Voris, the voice of RealCatholicTv has been ordered by the archdiocese of Detroit to conform with canon law and not use the word 'Catholic' in his ministry. My question is,..What the hell else is he supposed to call it? The accusers, (remnant/disgruntled hippies and feminazis from the Bishop Gumbleton days,..) are using Canon law to justify their claims. This issue has yet to be resolved. Why are people so afraid of Voris? Is it his forthright style? His 'tell it like it is attitude?' Or maybe his magic hair? Personally Michael Voris is the breath of fresh air that I and countless other Catholic men need! I highly doubt Bishop Vigneron is the one behind this, but I would suspect that his staffers upset at the New Liturgy Translation, are lashing out and trying to pin down Voris for his 'dangerous' (code word for truthfull) commentary.
The groups I mentioned will get there own spotlight,.and perhaps liberation 'theology' will get a few posts treated to it. As Catholic men, we are responsible for our children and those under our care,..Let's start by asking the heavy questions?? You ready? I'll start. 'Why are we so concerned about Michael Voris' ministry and threatening him with the full weight of canon law,.yet,..Fr Richard McBrien is still allowed to teach 'theology' at Notre Dame?' (crickets chirping,..). Oh,.you think I forgot? Development and Peace has been bs'ing their way into the faithful Canadians' pocketbooks and brainwashing people with 'Cardinal Bernadin inspired seamless garment crap.' Here is great link,..Lifesite News . Ooops, forgot! Liberals can't link to this one, considered too dangerous might harm their self esteem, so I'll give you another beauty,. Heresy Hunter! This fellow Canadian has been exposing Development and Peace's big pile of steaming hot garbage for a while now! (I put the link to the blog,..liberals seriously, read it the whole blog, you'll laugh and might learn something!)
Pope St Pius X,...........ora pro nobis.
