I’ve started about five articles in the past week, but all seemed a bit passé two seconds after the final edit was done. (Sorry to my editor!) There’s been rapid fire goodness and I just couldn’t keep up! In short, it’s been a very good week in the faith. Why? Well, it’s certainly not because everyone is getting it right. It’s because people are correcting what is wrong. Here are some of the great articles of the week. (Sorry if I missed any.)
On the topic of Cardinal Blase Cupich’s errors and, apparently, the buzz phrase talking points all good liberals are repeating – “paradigm shift”:
And, of course, all these articles point to the fact that Cardinal Cupich is THE last guy who should ever be doing this: http://www.catholicworldreport.com/2018/02/12/cardinal-cupich-launches-amoris-laetitia-seminars-for-us-bishops/
I’m hoping with these next two items, that we’ll move on to “Rebuke Fr. Martin Week” or “Rebuke Cardinal Mahoney Year”. My preference? Let’s go with Martin now that one of his heroes (Cardinal Roger “Religious Education Congress” Mahony) has crawled back into the hole from whence he came. It might have been nice if he had never been invited, but then again, I’m sure that some were hoping the Chile scandal would never come to light and remind us all what Cardinal Mahony did during his tenure.
Last week’s spotlight on Cardinal Cupich should be the norm for these guys leading souls into error. I was thrilled to see it. Sunlight is a great disinfectant, as they say. For too long, the Catholic world took the “If we ignore them, they might go away!” attitude. Up to now, the liberals have been encouraged, and clearly, they’ve got a Rolodex of writers, albeit really bad ones, in their back pockets. The secular people LOVE scandal and they love it no place better than the Catholic Church, so they will gladly eat up the goop given to them by the Martin Minions.
Honestly, while some were offended at Faggioli’s “Cyber Militia” comment, I was thinking “I soooooo want to be in that club. It’s about darn time!” If I had to guess, there’s probably some cyber meetings going on right now about how to go forth after the ridiculous barrage of articles that came when poor old Fr. James Martin, SJ, spontaneously combusted (But he’s at peace. Really, he is.) a few weeks back over one more cancellation notch in the Catholic Cyber Militia’s belt. If so, yay for finally organizing. Every little comment should be met with a swift correction.
Lastly, I saw this. Let the whining and crying resume!
Rather than war on Pope Francis, I think they represent a “total war” on Fr. Spadaro, Cardinal Cupich, and all of the other little minions roaming the world seeking the ruin of souls. Make no mistake, Tony Annett, it is a battle we’re in. If you think we’re dropping the armor because YOU call for an interdict, guess again. We couldn’t care less about your silly characterizations. You want to call it a war? BRING IT ON! This isn’t a jockeying for position in the hierarchy of the Church for us. It’s for the souls of our children. Again, BRING. IT. ON!
Keep pouring on the disinfectant, fellow militia members. The bacteria definitely needs a major beat back! Forward! Forward and forward again! That’s something we can all do.
