You must rush to read the whole of Robert Royal’s latest column. HERE
I preface it with a reminder that I posted a tongue in check call to arms that wasn’t really tongue in cheek at all. HERE
Here’s the pattern that I have seen repeat itself over and over and over in the Church. Libs, let’s say lib priests though this is present in many spheres, can do any damn thing they want and proper authority rarely, if ever, disciplines or corrects them. But if “conservatives” do something, the bishop is on the phone to beat the guy black and blue and, in effect, bully him into dropping something that he has the right, and moral high ground to do. Priests going into parishes are told: “For heaven’s sake don’t upset The
Proletariate… People. Don’t make changes for a year!” Libs immediately start to tear down everything the previous conservative pastor built. Conservatives tend to obey. But… do they raise their heads up for juuuuust a winky tink, Bishop Thrasybulus – no, rather, since I’m in Rome – Bishop Lucius Tarquinius Superbus is on the blower calling them “downtown” for a little Tall Poppy treatment.
Lay people. It is time to FIGHT BACK.
FIGHT BACK in the secular sphere when the anti-Catholic bigots go after us.
FIGHT BACK in the ecclesial sphere when the… ummmm… anti-Catholic bigots go after us.
I’m starting on a new program of special Psalms. You know the ones. The psalms written under inspiration but which the tender snowflakes don’t want to hear. They plug their ears when they are mentioned and sing “And I will raaaaaaise you uuuuup….”, so they don’t have to acknowledge they exist. Special Psalms.
Now go read Royal.
What are you waiting for?
