New York City is on the way to electing an out and proud "Catholic" lesbian for mayor, one who is, incidentally, "married" to her lesbian lover. The showdown is a-comin' and this lady has already thrown down the gauntlet. No one can tell her what she can or can't do in "HER church!" (which certainly is NOT the Holy Catholic Church founded by Jesus Christ).
Let's pray Cardinal Dolan has the fortitude to meet the challenge head on. While I'm on retreat this week I am praying for him to, like Jesus, say, "Zeal for [God's] house consumes me." I'm also praying for Christine Quinn, the likely mayor who is on the fast track to hell unless she repents. Her scandal is so broad that the millstone awaiting her is a heavy one.
Jesus is separating the sheep from the goats. Where will Church leaders in the U.S. line up? At this point, it's fidelity and persecution or schism and persecution. Take your pick. Any Catholic who believes he will be dodge the bullet by following the politically correct path is naive. Useful dupes will be tolerated until they are no longer needed. Then they will follow the faithful to the rack. Pray for the courage to suffer well.
