How Closing Our Seminaries Fosters Vocations

How My Annual Religious Education Congress Dissent-Fest Builds Up the Faith

Why I Excluded the "Courage" Group from L.A.

The Last Thing Hollywood Needs Is a Decency Code

Only 560 Lawsuits Against an Archdiocese Is Not Excessive

Time for a Female Pope, but not Mother Angelica

The Pope Needs to Wreckovate St. Peter's

Why Quoting Me Equals "Attacking" Me

Why "Southwest Indian Flying Serpent," "Energy (soul)," "Sicilian Legs (regeneration symbol)," "Serpent/Dragon," "I Ching/Ti Chi," "Celtic Monster" and "Raven Eating Man's Liver" Belong on the Bronze Doors of a Catholic Cathedral

Why Quintero and His Friends Shouldn't Expect to Receive the Cardinal's Award

Time for Cardinal Mahony to resign.

I'm disgusted with him, I don't know what else to say.

Wow! I posed a question and asked for responses, and I sure got them, lots of them!

I posed the question because I believe these are not ordinary times and because they are not ordinary times, the solutions may not be ordinary. Indeed St. Athanasius the Great faced such times, and his solution was not exactly ordinary. I seem to recall that he said something like this “they have the buildings, they have the funds, they have the power, but we have the Faith”. In case some of you are not aware of it, “they” meant the Arian heretics of which most of the then Hierarchy, including Pope Liberius, were members!

Pope Liberius, thanks be to God, repented of his unjust excommunication of Bishop Athanasius, and he repented of his surrender to the Arians before he died.

Some of you are of the opinion that obedience, even in sin, is required. I totally disagree with that and so do the scriptures: "So for one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, it is a sin." James 4:17

Some of you are of the opinion that validly ordained priests who find themselves in such positions and elect to continue as priests without their obviously apostate Bishop’s approval (faculties) are in schism.

Some of you even question whether these Bishops and Cardinals of which we are referring to are in schism. The Catholic Dictionary defines schism as refusing to submit to the authority of the Pope. If refusing to obey instructions on womens’ordination, use of proper vessels at the Mass, ordination of homosexuals, etc. etc. does not fit that definition, what does?

Some of you stated, and rightfully so, that the sermon is supposed to reflect the readings of that day. To those I point out that many of these priests lectured against sodomy when the readings dealt exactly with that, many lectured against divorce and remarriage when the readings were on the Wedding Feast of Cana or other appropriate readings, some spoke out against receiving the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord when the readings were from Corinthians, you know that one that dealt with those who receive unworthily! I might also point out that in the question I qualified it by stating “to not ever”, so I wasn’t speaking about some priests who are like a broken record on these issues, but the priests who do speak out at the appropriate times.

Many of you, some reluctantly, allowed for the fact that these poor priests had no other way to go if they were to continue in their Sacred Priesthood for which they were ordained forever, and I agree.

I don’t remember if the requirement to speak on the readings of the day were in effect before Vatican II, perhaps some of you could enlighten me on that.

Even though it wasn’t exactly the subject of my question, some of you stated that the Blessed Sacrament should not be held as a sort of weapon over the heads of these people who are in an obvious state of Mortal Sin. Excuse St. Paul but he wrote that those who receive unworthily are GUILTY OF THE BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST!

What could be more clearer than that? 1 Cor11:27.

All in all, I posed these questions because I believe it is time for the faithful to seriously consider them, and I will be posing other searching questions in the future.

I pose these questions fully knowing that I may lose some of you
because of them, but would I be true to Our Lord and His and Our Mother if I failed to to do so for that reason?

God bless, yours in Their Hearts,
