The Bishops Have Abandoned Us: These Wolves Deserve All Our Contempt and Disdain

The worldwide situation is serious.

The underlying illness causing the situation is also serious.
.
But the attitude of most bishops in most affected countries is simply despicable, repugnant, deserving all our contempt and disdain. Not content with having thrown the faithful for decades to the care of sexual abusers, now, in the moment of greatest need, they simply abandon us.
.
The suspension of large gatherings (including public masses) is quite understandable. But the other measures are abusive, and a sign of the complete disregard of these wolves who pretend to be shepherds for the souls of the faithful. But the act of many, apparently most, bishops to close churches to simple individual prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament? And, much worse, to “ban” confessions in the time of greatest need? To “ban” last rites, including the viaticum and extreme unction in the time of greatest peril?
.
What is the point of the Church at all, of the priesthood, if these physicians of the soul abandon the sick right now? How come Francis mentioned the church as a “field hospital” from day one of his pontificate, and, when the need for actual field hospitals is here, priests and bishops simply do not show up? Do they have to despise the laity that much? THIS is clericalism of the worst kind.
.
Note this, bishops who have “banned” confessions and last rites in this time: WE WILL NOT FORGET THAT YOU ABANDONED US IN THE MOMENT OF GREATEST NEED.

    Nick is right, we won’t forget how our bishops, except a few, have sent a letter to tell us to do what the state tells us. However, at this opportune time, how many are now video conferencing or doing live broadcasts to the general church flock? How many are making this a teachable moment by talking about the truths of the faith, providing a live mass, or a live rosary, or a moment of instruction?
    Our priest lives at an abbey and is not allowed to leave. So where does that leave the parishioners?
    The people will not support the diocese in their (bishops) hour of need when they campaign for the umpteenth second collections that affect the diocesan offices only and doesn’t affect the local or rural parishes.
    There will be more bankruptcies, especially in the dioceses with sexual predator lawsuits. The spiritual needs of the people will be looking for spiritual leadership – they may be looking elsewhere. Many priests are in the same boat without spiritual support from their bishops.

  2. I’m not up to speed on all the interrelated factors of canon law and church hierarchy rules but I’m familiar with past history of the Church during major world calamities and wars enough to say that with what my life experience and studies have given me for perspective, it paints me a pretty clear perception that the church was always in the ready working directly with the faithful especially if any major crisis was upon the faithful; The Flock. So now the Good Shepherd can abandon the flock; I’ve never heard of such a thing! One thing I feel presently convinced of though is that since Francis was installed as the active Pope while Benedict was excused to go lie down and stay out of the way I see that Francis has an agenda to form a new church in place of the Holy Roman Catholic Church, which would be more akin to a synagogue of Satan filled with blasphemes and conjoined with New World Order Totalitarian doctrines on the horizon; and this can only mean to me after all of the centuries the Church remained intact to go through these convulsions now means we are looking at the antichrist’s emergence occurring in the near term. This is mostly my gut right now, but I have enough personal experience with Nazi like Gestapo rule book Democrats in my region that targeted me to take me down and out of the picture, a diabolical attack from hell, along with Freemasons or the most vile partisan nefarious individuals around here to know something very bad is afoot when I’ve always been a nice guy and just fair with anyone, maybe outspoken and cared to a fault to my demise it seems! I had written to Francis when things were really bad for me, seeking his prayer and advice but that was never responded to and since the last few years have passed I’ve seen the foul agenda of that man which to me seems clear he is a heretic sponsor of evil. I hope I’m wrong, but I have way too much pain and trouble I’ve been subjected to for over a dozen years by many of these interrelated factors to think otherwise! God help us all in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord Savior and Redeemer. Amen.

    Thank you for making some important observations on this difficult situation, Mary.

    Many good priests are doing their best to obey their bishops and the civil authorities, whilst determined not to abandon their flocks. Thanks to the global benefits of the Internet we are helped by them to turn our homes into true domestic churches during this time of strict lockdown. A viral Mass is never the same as being physically present at the Most Holy Sacrifice of course, but we are enabled to join in the holy liturgy in the cloister of our hearts. Perhaps the inability to go to the Sacrament of Confession, especially now in Lemt, is one of the hardest things to bear. My heart aches for those who die in hospital at this time without the benefits of the Sacraments or the presence of their grieving families. Sadly this is happening over and again in Spain right now.

    Some valiant priests, who have stepped out to take the Blessed Sacrament onto the streets or homes of the dying, have risked being fined or even arrested. But what earthly punishment can compare to the price of saving a single soul for Heaven?

    Thanks for your moving testimony, Lawrence. Certainly the suffering you have been subjected to has sharpened your insights into the sinister workings of the devil who has infiltrated the Holy Bride of Christ. The “agenda” of Francis then, tragically, becomes all too clear.
    Our role is to remain steadfast and faithful, remembering Our Lady’s heartfelt plea to constant Prayer and Penance.

  5. Mary Salmond says:

    kathleen: And perhaps many priests feel the weight of not being able to administer Extreme Unction at this time. Their duties have been confiscated and they may wonder what their mission really is!

  6. kathleen says:

    Yes Mary, I know for a fact that this is so.
    It is a real dilemma for them. They know they should obey their bishops, but the unique duties of their holy priesthood compels them to an overwhelming desire to risk their own safety to take Our Blessed Lord to their starving (and sometimes, dying) flock.
    Many good compassionate priests have died, especially in Italy, victims of the coronavirus as they fulfilled their priestly duties. Their reward will be great in Heaven.

  7. Thank you Kathleen! Very good to hear from you and receiving clarity about the actual truth is imperative, so I appreciate your insight as well as passionate devout faith in our Lord! He after all is our focus always if we truly believe in Him and Our Blessed Lady chosen by Our Father in heaven and foretold in prophecy to be the one Lady out of all to bear the Christ Child, which is so highly regarded with praise and veneration having been touched in such a direct Holy way, by Our Father in heaven, surely she holds the most true heartfelt devotion to her Son Jesus the Christ whom she still eternally serves; in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost in being the most true advocate for the shed blood of Jesus for the remission of all our sins, we who are still in great danger and need Salvation; we are praying with her comes to all the truly worthy and faithful. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

  8. kathleen says:

    Beautiful words Lawrence. And true. Thank you very much.

  9. Thank you very much Kathleen. I’m humbled and honored to have this opportunity and connection with you, a blessing from our heavenly Father. I’m reassured knowing you are so devoted and doing what you do to serve our Lord Jesus Christ. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance anytime. God Bless You.
    Brother in Christ Jesus,
    Lawrence
