So, I heard through the grapevine that yet another stalwart, devout, and active Catholic has left the parish. A grievous loss, because these types of individuals, those who truly live their faith, are I believe, the ones who keep spiritual watch over the parish. Their prayers keep the wolves at bay. But, it is manifestly difficult when the wolves are within the fold, instituting a new kind of 'Catholicism' that is so obvious in its rotten fruit that even the "Go Alongs to Get Along" don't deny the devastation.
Perhaps the new bishop, God willing, will see fit to restore order.
