For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Corruption In The Church Hard To Ignore...So Let's Not.

I found this year-old interview with Father Corapi on The Anchoress, so it must be good...and is so. Several topics are discussed, but the general theme is that things have gone in the wrong direction, that the Church has lost sight of The Cross and gotten too permissive over the past several decades, leading to widespread disobedience and diluted faith.

There are two reasons I post this now. One is upon reading a couple of very recent interviews HERE and HERE with Archbishop Timothy Dolan on his one year anniversary of being installed in New York ---he makes some very strong pro-life statements, which for some reason appear shocking to some. The other is due to some recent press attention given to the Pope's meeting with Irish Bishops on sexual abuse in that country, and what will or will not be done about it.

The Church is clearly ill and has been for some time. Too many catholics-in-name-only have attained leadership positions and don't share the Church's basic positions on life issues.  The leaders at the very top (Popes) seem to have the right idea. but I get the impression that they would take a much harder position if they had the backing of the vast majority of the bishops, which I believe they do not have.  

So with that thought in mind, we have an opening in the Harrisburg diocese for the position of BISHOP, and perhaps it's time for Father Corapi to get his long-deserved promotion.  I wonder if he's interested....

Ya gotta love Father Corapi. He would indeed be an excellent bishop!
