The Cancelation of Truth

Your Eminence, Your Beatitude, Your Excellency,

With deep sadness I observe you sidelining good and decent priests on a massive scale. I mourn for these holy men and for their abandoned flocks, but I also mourn over how your actions will impact you.

You have canceled effective servants of Christ, who shine light on the Truth and bring clarity to the faithful, while so many clergymen hide behind ambiguities or worse to avoid offending anyone. You are ruthlessly determined to muzzle those who do not subscribe to the Church of Nice blinded by Satan’s smoke.

Wanted: Holy Heroes

At a time when the Catholic Church is overrun with weak shepherds who are afraid to stand up against the prevailing culture, the strong priests you've expelled are an inspiration to all who strive to live authentic Catholic lives.

We, the faithful laity, need holy heroes to lead the fight against the Evil One, whose aim is to ruin souls and crush the Church. The priests you are persecuting for their fidelity to Catholic teachings are the very heroes the Bride of Christ is crying out to in distress, to rescue her.

Why are you not their champions? Why are you afraid of them?

The Fate that Awaits Cowards

Please reconsider the dangerous and broad path you are taking, in following the example of spineless, cowardly bishops. Remember the words of Revelation: “the cowardly … will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur (Rev. 21:8).”

Become saints, by protecting those who preach the Truth of the Gospel!

Defend the doctrines of the Catholic Church, and be spiritual fathers to the loyal priests in your care. Do not abandon them. Do not remove them, thereby leaving Christ’s sheep to wander along the wide road to perdition – and thus ensuring your own eternal damnation.

Repent, before it is too late. Jesus said; “If anyone causes one of these little ones - those who believe in me - to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea (Matthew 18:6).”

God Will Protect His Own

In removing faithful priests, you are not silencing them. Instead, you are unleashing the Power of God, Who will protect His Own and not stand idly by, watching His Church be destroyed from within. His Holy Mother will crush Satan and all his minions under her heel (Genesis 3:15).

You surely do not wish to find yourself on the wrong side of this spiritual battle and “fighting even against God (Acts 5:39)”? Remember the words of St. John Chrysostom, Doctor and Father of the Church, “I do not think that many bishops are saved, but that those who perish are far more numerous."

Show Bravery for the Sake of Your Soul

You do not want the last words you ever hear from Jesus to be “‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ (Matthew 7:23)”

May the Holy Spirit move you to reinstate your faithful priests. May He grant you the strength to break your association with the cohorts of Satan, and the courage to fight for the true teachings of the Catholic Church.

Christ will remember your acts of bravery, when you stand before Him as the Just Judge at the hour of your death.

Sincerely in Christ.
