Whose Power is it Anyway
Before going further with any blogging I have some thoughts to air and comments to make. I wish to make comments upon the efforts made by the Catholic Hierarchy concerning Catholic Blogs and their, the Bishops, newly minted efforts and strategies to regain their power in the Church. Their egos have never met such a united public effort and they will never regain their favored position until they lose their hubris and teach Catholicism as Jesus left it. The atmosphere surrounding Catholic Blogs is gradually becoming poisonous and good people are digressing by defending their viewpoint. This is very wrong and Christ pointed out in scriptures He has come with a sword and He will be a cause of separation in families. How awful but it is very true, what else would we think of Christ’s words. Are Catholic Bloggers wrong? Maybe but it does depend on their sincerity. I think those blogs separating the Church by the liturgy are very wrong. I feel it is only the Devil who would want the Sacrifice devalued or become a source of confusion as Paul the 6th. wrote, early in his papacy. Anyone who is a properly informed Catholic could make a case for the Holy Spirit deserting Vatican 2 and thank God not the Church. Make I ask an honest question and urge you to think about the answer? Can any of you see the work of the Holy Spirit, when the Bishops used a Lutheran Theologian (??) to critique the Catholic Liturgy or use a woman outside the Church to critique the ways of the Laity. Would the Holy Spirit who said through Christ, “A yes is a yes and a no is a no, and anything else is of the wicked one”, make so many ambiguous statements? Would the Holy Spirit want this type of renewal for the Church, more or less a new covenant? Did the Holy Spirit show us through the Bishops we had gone so far astray that He was going to start a new covenant with new apostles? If so, where were the tongues of fire coming down upon the new apostles. The renewal for the Church is found in the renewal of the Laity in the Holy Mystical sacraments? That is what the Catholic Bloggers want a renewal of the Bishops and their disgusting hubris dumped into such a fire it deserves.
Will they get it, O yes already the Blogosphere has caused the errors of the Bishops to come into the light, as Christ promised that all sin would. Look at the donations in the name of Charity given by bishops to pro-abortion groups in S. America. This week they have announced a change in policy and you can bet a blogger will catch it and publish deliberate setting aside of their new found life in Christ. Many of these power mad potentates will use any means to stop the erosion of their grasp upon the Church and and its riches, even I suspect to use secular help to detract from the words and publishing of those of the Laity who genuinely love the Mystical Body of Christ. New interpretations of Charity, truth and other long held meanings of virtues and sin will come easily to two tongued serpents.
Before I finish I have no idea of how many read my blog. I hold no deep seated need to know. I do not have to mental energy to seek votes as do some of the more pompous of the other catholic bloggers. I feel if there is a certain rightness about what I write then He whom I claim as my companion in this world, making this claim through the Mystical yet not supernatural, the ways of the Holy Catholic, Apostolic and Papal Church
