I urge everyone to read the Appeal for the Church and the World and sign it if you are in general agreement and help to spread it far and wide.
This Appeal represents the strong and courageous Church coming forward once again as opposed to the weak and spineless Church which we are all so familiar with. It is important because the issue is no longer just about whether we shall ever gather to celebrate the Mass in public again. It is about the Church coming forward now to do what it is obligated to do in addition to providing us with worship and the Sacraments. We need the Church and strong American Catholics to stand up and defend the weak and innocent against the impositions on their natural rights by powerful, arrogant tyrants.
From the Appeal:
“Those with governmental responsibility must stop these forms of social engineering, by taking measures to protect their citizens whom they represent, and in whose interests they have a serious obligation to act. Likewise, let them help the family, the cell of society, by not unreasonably penalizing the weak and elderly, forcing them into a painful separation from their loved ones. The criminalization of personal and social relationships must likewise be judged as an unacceptable part of the plan of those who advocate isolating individuals in order to better manipulate and control them.”
Here in Boston, my grandchildren, and all kids, cannot go to school or play soccer on a team, or meet with their friends, or have a birthday party, or play in the playground which is across the street. Will they be able to go to camp this summer or go to swim at the pool or beach? Who knows? These are decisions that should be made exclusively by their parents and not by so-called experts or the apostate Catholic Mayor of Boston, whose judgment regarding any matters involving the protection of human life is highly suspect. How can our Church leaders leave us at the mercy of these enemies?
I don’t need any experts to tell me that kids are being greatly damaged. Perfectly healthy, they cannot go outside for a walk without wearing the ubiquitous death mask. Enough is enough.
Even if you cannot sign the appeal at this time I urge you to participate in the discussion. Help us to open the Churches again and let’s also open the Church halls and basements for gatherings to facilitate open, honest conversations about what is happening to us and what people of Faith can do about it.
From the Appeal:
“A democratic and honest debate is the best antidote to the risk of imposing subtle forms of dictatorship, presumably worse than those our society has seen rise and fall in the recent past.”
Breaking news: Cardinal Muller, a brave man, and probably the most prominent person to sign the appeal, is being attacked. Please sign the appeal in order to protect him. There is safety in numbers. Every added signature is important, especially if you are a famous or semi-famous Catholic clergyman or lay person whose name is recognizable to others on the internet.
In Catholic Solidarity,
Let us remember these few remaining good shepherds in our prayers.
