While Cardinal Sean O'Malley and Fr. Thomas Rosica ripped into Catholics who dared to criticize the Kennedy funeral which not only scandalized by honoring, no - nearly canonizing, the roaring lion of death but also included numerous liturgical abuses, one good bishop supports faithful laity. Bishop Rene Gracida, bishop emeritus of Corpus Christi, TX posted several thoughtful statements on his blog as well as a number of great articles from others. His words encourage the laity to continue fighting to uphold Catholic truth.
Thank you, Bishop Gracida, for being a beacon of light in the dark which is particularly black in many dioceses around the country where the shepherds are hiding their lights under a bushel basket in a closet in the basement. Thank you for being a true teacher who exhorts us to be soldiers of Christ in the Church Militant not burger flippers at the Church picnic.
