This post is aimed in a special way at priests and bishops out there – office holders in the Church of awesome spiritual authority, as teachers, as wielders of prophetic potential – but who are not yet committed to doing something to help Holy Church, and therefore the whole world, in the crisis we are in.
Here is part of a post by a priest who determined that he has had enough of the … rubbish that’s going on:
I am a weak spiritual leader who has led us to a place where “conservatives” cannot get elected or stay in office without making horrible compromises. I take the blame on this one.
I sat by and allowed sappy, effeminate, profane liturgies demoralize and deaden the hearts of our Catholic men (and many Catholic women). I remained mostly silent as feminists stripped our men of their dignity as husbands and fathers and spiritual heads of their households. I remained mostly silent as men slipped into the soul-deadening addiction of internet pornography. I remained mostly silent as liberal ideologues captured the attention of our youth. I remained mostly silent when our own Catholic leadership watered down and compromised the values and principles and morals of a once solid bedrock of faith in a tempted world. I remained mostly silent as our beloved Catholic Church was turned from a powerhouse of prayer and supernatural grace into one among many secular non-government organizations.
Father, there’s LOT’s of blame to go around.
There’s more, but you will have to go find it. HERE
BTW… I recently interviewed this priest in a pair of PODCAzTs.
So, all you priests and bishops who are trying to live on the fence or who have given into the liberal easy road… this is how a man stands up.
I suggest you start with learning the TLM, shifting Masses ad orientem, reviewing your CCC, and preaching the clear, unvarnished TRUTH … just to start.
