It’s a big claim, but where’s the lie? What do we hear from our coreligionists and what do we hear from the priests and even the pope today? That to be a good Catholics means being a fighter for social justice and climate change and carbon taxes and the rest of it. There’s so little talk about the need for getting on our knees and praying that it leaves us to wonder what it is most of these people believe in.
Cardinal Sarah’s words are needed now, more than ever. He addresses the attacks on clerical celibacy at the Synod and the attacks on the traditional Latin Mass as being demonic in nature, and he’s right on that assessment. His words are something that the faithful need to hear, and there are few people who will find what he has to say completely comfortable.
