I can’t help writing about the Church in the United States today. My focus is generally on the lost Sees and the changing world so I guess this particular bit of episcopal insanity falls under the latter heading. Timothy Dolan is the Cardinal Archbishop of New York. The Church in the United States of America does not have an official primate, as the Church in Poland does at Krakow and the Church in Italy does in Rome. But the unofficial position of primate generally resides either with the Cardinal Archbishop of New York or the Cardinal Archbishop of Chicago depending on the personality, visibility, or influence of whoever happens to be occupying that particular See at whatever particular time one is living in.
At this time the most prominent bishop in the United States is unarguably Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York. Which is why the good Cardinal’s decision to preside as grand marshal over the Saint Patrick’s Day parade next year that will for the first time include homosexual activists marching under their own banner is so deeply, deeply troubling. Why the good Cardinal, whose primary responsibility is the salvation of the souls of his flock, would seek to endorse a lifestyle that is 100% opposed to Church teaching and whose militant adherents seek the destruction of the Catholic Church and/or its influence in the world is beyond me I do not know. I can neither judge the man’s mind nor his heart, but this action and its consequences are a disaster and it has all the earmarks at least of an inward apostasy. Those who view the specter of the Cardinal Archbishop of New York, a successor of the apostles, marching at the head of a parade with all of those rainbow banners will not have their souls enlightened by the Truth of Jesus Christ taught by his Church. They most likely will be sent on the road to perdition.
We must love homosexuals as Jesus Christ Himself loves them. We must tell them what He Himself tells them. They must repent. For their own good and their own salvation. There is nothing more we can do for them and no greater love we can show them. They are no different than many of us in this society and culture who have been trapped in mortal sin for a good portion of our lives. And, given the rotten state of the clergy and the episcopacy in the United States for my entire lifetime, we have likely been given no help at all and most often probably sent in the wrong direction by those who are supposed to be helping us. To endorse homosexuality and to coddle that behavior, especially when one is the Cardinal Archbishop of a great Diocese (but the same holds true for all of us), is a greater evil that it is for the homosexual themself to practice that behavior. Why doesn’t the good Cardinal seek their salvation and seek to release these lost and confused souls from the prison of their sin? Why do his brother bishops generally follow this same pattern in most if not all of the dioceses of the United States? Why? For more information on the disasters the American episcopacy has inflicted on the faithful in this country visit ChurchMilitant.TV where they have several programs related to this topic. Michael Voris and his mates over there are the only ones with the courage to confront this issue and its disastrous consequences head on. Other Catholic websites and television programs fail abysmally in this regard. Why O shepherds are you devouring your flocks?
And I would remind both the bishops and anyone who reads this. These things will not go on forever. Your hour will come to an end, not only for yourselves individually at the moment of your death but collectively as well; what you have will be taken from you and given to others. You have sought to embrace modern American culture in all its perversity and put that culture ahead of the Teaching passed down to you from the apostles. But this culture that you are so devoted to is not immortal. It rests solely on the unchallenged military and economic supremacy of the United States over the entire planet. That is beginning to fade O bishops and priests, and the depraved culture you are so enamored with will one day soon reach its expiration date. Then what will you be left with?
I had to force myself back into the Confessional after many decades (with the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary after countless Rosaries said and sacrifices offered on my behalf by those who loved me I am sure) and now I would never go back to the way I was before. So I give you this advice O bishops and priests who fell too much in love with America: REPENT. And bring your misguided flocks along with you.
Pray for Cardinal Timothy Dolan, pray for your local bishop, pray for the bishops in the United States and across the formerly Christian world, and pray for the Holy Father Pope Francis.
