CLERGY SCANDAL

"COME HOLY SPIRIT, PURIFY THE CHURCH OF PREDATORY CLERGY AND THOSE WHO PROTECT THEM"


STATEMENT ON CLERGY SCANDAL

PURIFICATION EFFORT NEEDED BY THE ENTIRE BODY OF CHRIST

It is with great sadness that we have come to realize members of Christ's clergy have not only committed gravely sinful, immoral, and illegal acts, but that they have also been protected by members of the clergy entrusted with the divine authority of managing clerical personnel within Holy Mother Church.


We place our trust in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and his command that the Bride of Christ, Holy Mother Church, shall be built on the rock of St. Peter and that the gates of hell shall not prevail against her.


We, as members of Christ's body, must ALL participate in the purification of the clergy that is desperately needed today. Your clergy here at Christ the King Parish earnestly request all members of this parish to actively engage in the purification effort. PLEASE do not hesitate to demand from us, Bishop Armando, and our Holy Father, Pope Francis, transparency in what is being done about the miserable failure to address evil actions committed by members of our clergy and those lay people in positions of authority within parishes, dioceses, bishops conferences, and at the Vatican who are complicit in the evils committed against the faithful.


Communication is essential in this effort. The resources below are just some of those available to help all of us remain current on what is happening. Additional content will be added weekly.

BEWARE OF THE LAVENDAR MAFIAS

Yes, you read that correctly. Lavender Mafias—the plural. The coercive network of homosexualization that has gained so much power within the Catholic Church hierarchy is just one of a number. To understand more fully the current crisis in the Church, we need to be aware of them all, since they all work together toward a homosexualization of the culture.

THE FAITHFUL ARE CRYING OUT FOR ANSWERS...

...will Church leaders listen?


EDITORIAL: ‘We want a Church that proclaims truth profoundly. We want a Church that proclaims the teachings of our Church honestly.’


Since the news of sex-abuse allegations against former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and accusations of cover-up broke early this summer, laity across the United States — victims, angry parishioners who felt they were kept in the dark about predators in their midst, and parents worried for their children — have spoken out loudly. They have begged the bishops for action, for transparency and for clarity.

ACTION ITEMS

ROSARY COAST TO COAST

On the weekend of the October 7, Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, the US–through Rosary Coast to Coast–will join with our International brothers and sisters to pray for our respective nations.


Americans across the country are invited to pray Rosary Coast to Coast wherever they can gather:  in parish Churches; in front of state capitols; along the US coasts and borders; as families; or while viewing the live-stream of the National Rosary Rally. Rosary Coast to Coast will take place at 4 pm Eastern, 3 pm Central, 2 pm Mountain, 1 pm Pacific. The reasoning behind these times will be to support all timezones in full participation of events, aside from Sunday Masses. Indeed, the Heart of the Nation will be Immersed in the Hour Of Mercy.
