I’m not a woman to be messed with today, so please don’t push it or I’ll delete your post. Post anything attacking the Holy Father on my day and I repeat, I will delete it. Don’t say I’m repressing you free speech because someone else this week has already written on the sexual abuse crisis – so if you want to slander the Pope, do it there). This post is for two groups of people – those who believe that the Holy Father is actually taking a strong stand against the sex crisis in the church. You do not necessarily have to be catholic; just have a sense of justice. The second group are those faithful Catholics who see the Holy Father as a spiritual father, as the sweet Christ on Earth.
All I’m asking for today is prayer, mortification, and defence for Our Holy Father. Please pray for His intentions and the intentions of the Church at this time, first and foremost, and make your own personal mortifications – whatever is appropriate for your particular circumstance. Also, don’t stand by and let him be dragged through the mud by journalists, friends, acquaintances or whatever. It is our responsibility as good children to read up on what is happening (from accurate new sources) and disseminate accurate information about what is happening – write letters to the editor, read and don’t stop talking.
How appropriate that the Holy Father is being attacked at this time of year. After all, he is Christ on Earth, perhaps this is his Calvary.
Have a great Easter everyone
