The news media are disrespecting the priesthood again
Instead of saying, "Father John Doe," they say, "priest John Doe."
That is a very anti-Catholic and anti-clerical usage and tone. They had to go out of their way to think that up and write it.
Nobody talks that way in real life. They say, "Father John Doe," never "priest John Doe."
Actually, some people do write that way and have written that way: Evil, avowed enemies of the Church such as dictators, fascists, nazis, communists, anarchists, etc.
Little-noticed things like this are harbingers of persecution. What do you think?
O Mary, Queen of the Clergy and Mother of the Church, pray for us and our beloved priests!
