There is so much going on right now; the Bishop Bransfield case in West Virginia, Bishop Richard Malone of Buffalo, NY and the slow collapse of the diocese, the Delaware apostate, ex-priest, on the Diocesan Marriage Tribunal, not to mention all of the clerical support, including bishops, of the gay agenda which clearly flies in the face of the teaching of Catholicism. One has to ask what is going on? If the good bishops would speak up for God when the bad bishops are spewing heresy, and the week bishops would step up as men of God things might get better.
In the past I did not believe that there were bishops and priests who did not believe in God. Why then choose this life? It is not an easy life. Maybe it is easy if you do not believe. I do believe, and I do believe that there are some men in the clerical ranks today who do not believe in God. How could they say that they believe in God and do what they do? How could they believe in God and promote what they promote? Mr. Theodore McCarrick, obviously, was never really Roman Catholic. Mr. Theodor McCarrick could not have believed that there would be a final judgment by God…yet he made it to the rank of Cardinal Archbishop. How? How many others are there? Will their fall be just as spectacular? How much more will the truly faithful have to endure?
I constantly tell parishioners to cling to Jesus. I constantly tell myself the same thing. Sometimes it is a heavy yolk. I’ll take the light yolk any time now God. But I do have the light of truth. I try to follow the light of truth. God is truth. We need to follow God.
