Voris on bishop/priest issues August 25, 2010

Voris on Fr. Michael Rodriguez, Fr. Patrick Breen, and their respective bishops, all issues covered recently on this blog.  I’d say Voris pretty much takes my view on Bishop Ochoa condemning Fr. Rodriguez.  Even more, Voris makes the very salient point that Fr. Rodriguez is the one truly acting out of love – he loves people enough to tell them the Truth revealed by Christ through His Church in an unvarnished, clear, and uncompromising fashion, in spite of the torrent of abuse he has surely received.  God bless Fr. Michael Rodriguez, whose family has suffered quite a bit for their Faith.

Anyone want to listen to sermons by Fr. Michael Rodriguez available over the internet for download?

Check out his parish web site: sanjuan.webhop.org

He has a particularly good one of recent vintage on “obedience”….

Pax et benedictiones tibi, per Christum Dominum nostrum,

Could be an indication of the amount of pressure diocesan chanceries (chancellors, vicars general, etc.) are under to avoid civil litigation. They’re still a bit gun shy from the sexual abuse feeding frenzy. Some are still in the midst of it and rightly feel they’re doing quite enough already to be stewards of diocesan resources.

It’s sinful to quench the spiritual works of mercy (e.g., admonishing the sinner) but when you’re the one ‘getting served’ it takes tremendous fortitude not to ask pastors to err on the side of prudence.
