Margery Eagan's Marching Orders




Today, Maggs Eagan announced that the Catholic Church will soon approve of civil unions.


Since that's about as likely as the Pope himself marrying Georg_Gänswein, the logic she uses to demonize Brother Thomas is dead in the water.

Still, the fact that Pope Francis is creating an image for himself that makes faithfulness to Church teaching an enemy of the people is disturbing. Margery Eagan is getting her marching orders from our Pope's talking points, or lack thereof.

In the absence of talk about Church teaching, he continuously makes farcical statements about a future where Church teaching remains in place but his manifesto will instruct us how to disobey it. He is discrediting truth, in our own homes and families. Dividing our children against the Church.

I think what is most unsettling about the situation is, I do not know the man. I don't recognize his voice. I am a distant observer struggling to hear his message, make sense out of his endless contradictions, insults against faithful Catholics and admiration of people and things that mislead. Trying desperately to hear the voice of my shepherd.

I wouldn't necessarily expect a prophet would bring faithful Catholics good will, but I cannot reconcile the contempt he is inciting for truth.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. You understand the madness and can articulate it clearly. You are helping me stay somewhat sane.

I think I'll change my name to Vinnie Barbarino, "I'm so confused!" by this Pope!
