Nabi Sayeth: There does appear to be an Ecclesiastical Cat Fight underway:
What a shamefully catty public display, and over what? POWER, PRESTIGE, MONEY…. everything that Our Lord found repulsive. Did these people never read the words of Jesus to His apostles in Mark 10:35-45….
35 “Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him and said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.” 36 He replied, “What do you wish [me] to do for you?” 37 They answered him, “Grant that in your glory we may sit one at your right and the other at your left.” 38So Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I drink or be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?” 39 They said to him, “We can.” Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink, you will drink, and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; 40 but to sit at my right or at my left is not mine to give but is for those for whom it has been prepared.” 41 When the ten heard this, they became indignant at James and John. 42 Jesus summoned them and said to them, “You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones make their authority over them felt. 43 But it shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant; 44 whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all. 45 For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
An even more important question is, did they ever heed Our Lord’s words?
If they and their ilk (Tobin, Bransfield, MCCarrick, et al) do not repent and change their ways….their fate is assured...Mark 8:36…
36 “What profit is there for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?”
While they are fighting over positions of POWER, PRESTIGE and MONEY, what happened to:
-feeding the hungry-clothing the naked-giving shelter to the homeless-protecting our children….
Nabi Sayeth: Shame on them all!
