How many Catholics who are baptized, but not truly catechized ,understand what Christ taught the Apostles? May I say as I read everything I can of the Church, of Her ancient Fathers, Homilies and statements by Bishops and Priests on the Internet and therefore I believe many efforts by the Hierarchy to deny as spiritual movements of the Holy Spirit in the minds of many Catholics published as blogs. They claim these blogs or will soon claim them as not proceeding from the Holy Spirit. Judging and scandal will be amongst the reasons they will give. They will claim the glorious Spirit of Wisdom and Love for themselves and not see Him in us, the Laity. A laity seeking wisdom from the Church, seeking from teachers, who in the main, disdain these souls who seek truth. We can claim truth is hidden from us, the food for our souls . When one considers the state of the so called College of Bishops and many of their members who pursue a false fatherhood hiding and keeping in darkness the wolves and predators who seek to commit spiritual homicide upon their flocks. They demand remember we see them as Sentinels. I ask from their actions can we know that Christ has appointed others. Benedict wrote of Symeon The Pious, well he wrote and said it would happen.
We have only to read the actions of Bishop Lahey and see the actions and denials of the Canadian conference of bishops who had no knowledge of his journeys to

These occurrences certainly lead me to believe that as a group the Holy Spirit does not speak through the Bishops, unless of course they are quoting the Holy Father. Individually there are many to whom one can say yes and recognize the veracity of their words and teachings. Any Catholic catechized rightly can tell you this, A just man will always say what is just, if unjust he will criticize unjustly. The Holy Spirit gives light and only The Holy Spirit can. If a person is just and upright, that is in a state of grace, we possess the superhuman wisdom of God and will act accordingly and recognize the truth in the hearts of others. One must also consider Christ’s magnificent words and pray, “All that is dark in the Church comes into the light”. This we should ask so that the will of God can be practiced so we can forgive and heal our neighbors and that does not mean let them do it again. Sin should not be a habit nor an addiction. Can you agree with me that many bishops do not, cannot recognize a state of grace when it is probable they do not have a relationship with it or the Sacrament of Confession. So many never recognize it in the instructions to the faithful. Take care for as I have heard there are or is a weasel Willy in every catholic gathering, one who says one thing and runs off bearing tales seeking gratification for his ego.
