No news about Fr. Tom yet

It will take me a couple of days to catch up with what happened.

I'll let everyone know when I hear.

Our friend LastCatholicinBoston brings up a point I've heard from time to time in the trenches: The spiritual battle has turned, we are no match for our opponents, we can't win at the Vatican - so let's get off the radar screen because they're going to get us.

I have two things to say about that: Quo Vadis.

It's not about being victorious. It's about putting it on paper and setting it under everyone's noses. If they heed the warning, goodie for them - goodie for all of us. If they don't, I'm going to keep on putting the paper trail under their noses until they do. If time passes and at the end of our lives the job isn't done - we pass the torch.

Never give up speaking the truth just because we are occupied and under siege.

Besides, now the Holy See has placed Archbishop Burke in a position where we can put the truth under his nose .

His mother did not raise a fool. And, given his recent public statements about the devil's work in a certain diocese near and dear to our hearts, call this a hunch - I think this holy servant may have an inkling as to who, exactly, is doing a disservice to the Church.

No, it is not time to give up.

I will not let a good priest be persecuted by the corrupt Archdiocese of Boston unopposed and without a paper trail. It's the very time to put together a nice little package of the Cardinal's tenure here or more precisely said the handing over of a diocese to dissenter J. Bryan Hehir and circulating it to all the right people.

Pony up!

I should have been clearer.
We ARE winning in the Vatican.
We will always ultimately win
with truth.
It is here is Boston that we are
dealing with a structure of sin.
Please do clarify this.

Archbishop Burke
"One sees the hand of the Father of Lies at work in the disregard for the situation of scandal or in the ridicule and even censure of those who experience scandal,"

That's what I'm talk'n about...

I'm not saying rollover, I'm saying
the fight is over we win...

LCIB, I wasn't really addressing you -- but more of the sound byte I'll sometimes hear in the trenches and to be perfectly honest, something I occasionally struggle with myself. When you said it, it reminded me it's something I ought to plug away at from time to time - reminding all of us (including me!)

I see what you're saying - and I wholeheartedly agree with you about the Vatican.

Hope your day was a great one!
