It seems as if the Catholic world in these USA is beset from without and within right now and that the lion is truly on the rampage. At least that’s how I have felt for the last few days. Flying apart at the seams.
Santa Rosa Diocese: Teacher Contract Update Affirming Catholic Teaching Will Happen
The Santa Rosa Diocese’s contract addendum by which teachers at Catholic schools will affirm their acceptance of Catholic teaching is reportedly still on track for implementation.“There is no intention not to do this [and] it will happen at some point,” said the communications director for the Santa Rosa diocese, Brian O’Neel, according to Petaluma 360.
Last year, diocesan Bishop Robert Vasa announced plans to have all parochial elementary and high school teachers within the diocese sign an agreement in their revised contracts to “bear witness” and affirm Church teaching. The moral addendum will reportedly include acknowledgement that contraception, abortion, homosexual marriage, and euthanasia are “modern errors” and grave offenses to human dignity.

I had a chance to meet and speak with Bp. Vasa during the recent Napa Conference. He is squared away.
Fr. Z kudos. Bravo.
