A Layman's Letter to All Bishops

Mariann / Mary's Child, Sunday, October 6, 2013

(This was submitted as a comment after the Lip Service Catholics page; because of it's size I put it in a webpage of its own, among the reader-submitted articles webpages.  Submitted with regards, Vic.)

This is excellent...such clarity.  Thanks for writing.  My difficulty begins at what is God telling me to do.  First, I was certain (end of April/beginning in May) that on or about the feast of St. Catherine that I was to email all U.S. Bishops, which I did.  Although I didn't receive a response, I believed I did what I was told to do.  Here is my note (will it fit?):

Peace of our Risen Lord be with your Spirit.  I  believe the Lord is tugging at my heart during prayer to send this note to all of our Bishops.  I thank you all for answering God's call to serve the faithful.  We are blessed to have you.

Briefly about me, I turned to the Lord with sorrow for all of my sins (many were grave), His Mercy was and is Divine; that awareness of my life and reversion to the Faith occurred when I turned 33 year's old--my life began at the same age His was ended, yet, He is Risen!

May the Lord open our souls and minds to His will.  Somehow, some way, someone has lead you away from your mission.  You are now in an arena that you were not meant to be a part of and need to step back from.  Three areas (and there are more) clearly that are of great concern are the Affordable Care Act, Gun Control, and Immigration Reform. 

Your support, although benevolent in intent,  for the first is clearly an error of unwarranted magnitude.  In other words, your support aided evil and, unless stopped, will bring about more damage than having no  ACA.  Lawsuits upon lawsuits upon lawsuits, upon losses, ...  Consider taking responsibility and cutting bait.  Denounce this atrocity they have created before this  socialist government, severely lacking in morals, begins it.

The Second Amendment is not your concern.  If any concern should be expressed, it would be for the faithful to act with fiscal restraint, to keep all family members protected from misuse of a firearm, and to those who legislate, make certain their current legislation is being enforced.  (I do not own a gun, nor do I intend to own a gun.)

Also, Immigration Reform is not part of your mission.  Again, if our legislators would enact enforceable laws, and those responsible would enforce those laws, we wouldn't have the sad mess we have now.  However, your mission is not to support legislation that may have detrimental consequences that you cannot foresee.  This is not your mission and is not your forte.  Consider stepping back from comments and instead focus on the lives of those individuals who need our prayers and our help.

Your mission would best be carried out if you step back from all spending toward groups who are formed by Alinsky or are off-shoots.  Simply, close the cchd and any other offices that give to non-descript groups...those empowering pedastal groups who empower no one except themselves.  Cleanse Catholic Charities (the woman who testified in Florida for Planned Parenthood was a former Board member of Catholic Charities?) and you may find ample donations to directly assist those in need.  Being good stewards of God's gift of nature -- regarding the environment, that is all -- cut bait and put out a statement exposing the evil of those who want us diverted from critical priorities for they will not be satiated  until population zero is achieved...(I recently watched a Firing Line with William F. Buckley from many years ago...this lie continues, and continues, and continues).

Your magnificent mission is salvation!  None of the above is a direct action in fulfilling your mission.  What direct actions will fulfill your mission?

Unity in the Truth!  Unite dear Bishops!  How profound it will be when you back each other on direct are some examples of recent stances to unite behind one another in Truth:

Archbishop Allen Vigneron on Sunday told the Detroit Free Press that Catholic supporters of same-sex ‘marriage’ should not present themselves to receive Communion.


Uniting with Bretheren such as these (and there are some more who have spoken out, one being Archbishop Cordileone, and another Bishop Thomas Paprocki) profoundly provides clarity to the faithful whose souls are under your care.  The gravity of this issue is before you at this crucial moment in time...unite and do not relent.

Unity in Truth!  Bravo for Bishop Robert Vasa!!!  All Bishops should be following his lead in Catholic Education.  Support this courageous leader and take steps to educate the educators.  What Wisdom!  And those, who are not in agreement with Church Dogma and are setting a life example opposing it, need to find other employment.  How pure!  How Christ-like!  How to look out for the souls of your flock!

Uniting in love for every baby who is aborted, beginning in our country.  We so very much need to hear from the mountaintops about this infanticide, and the horrors slowly being exposed regarding it...Kermit Gosnell.  I have heard nothing from our Bishop nor any Bishop.  Silence?  Last Friday, our President attended a "fundraiser?" for Margaret Sangor's Planned Parenthood, in which he uttered the unutterable, "May God bless P..."  Not one word of outrage has been heard as far as I know from you.  Why not?  This is clearly murder...they cannot make it any clearer.  Please speak out now while it is all so very visable!  You will touch souls without a doubt.  And if there are those who find this teaching hard, pray for them, but don't remain silent.  Act as Jesus did when the teaching was hard, but choosing not to teach is not an option for your job description.  Unite in Love!

Please consider what I am compelled to share with you, following the feast of St. Catherine of Siena.  This present darkness must be exposed by the Light of Christ through His ordained without hesitation.

May God bless you with an abundance of Divine

I'm beginning to look blue in the face for all that I say regarding and to our U.S. Bishops (particularly Cardinal Dolan regarding his blog)...

Dear Cardinal Dolan,

Glad you have the funds to even consider attending WYD in Rio.  Glad you were energized, too.  So good to step away from the "issues" and problems in the Church.  My dear Cardinal, the Church is the Bride of Christ.  The Person you focused on is the Way, the Truth and the Life, who can never, again, be separated from His Body.  Now that you are overflowing with grace, renewed in His Spirit, we are begging for you to proclaim Him boldly to your flock.  We, too, thirst for Him (not a watered down version of Him).  We are steeped in issues and problems because Bishops bow to political correctness.  Bishops in the U.S. need to unite, post Gosnell's and other murderers' awful display of the diabolical treatment to innocent life.  Please HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD so that souls will hear TRUTH!  Wake up the congregation by stating what all souls need to hear, for if you soften the message, souls will not see TRUTH.  This is coming from one who was steeped in sin for so many years, but is grateful to those who never backed away from speaking the Truth, as hard as it is to hear, so that I could seek (and receive) the Mercy and Love of God, and desire every day to ardently know, love and serve Him -- nearing 25 years.  Dear Bishop, be not afraid of boldly teaching the Truth...awaken all Catholics, or more will follow the diabolical path of Pelosi, Biden, Cuomo, Supreme Court Judge Kennedy, etc., etc., etc.

you have my prayers.


I replied to a woman who made absurd statements to the Cardinal's blog, then called on the Cardinal, himself...

Irene, you are among those who need to learn the teachings of your Faith, the One True Faith.  We are not redefining something that has ALWAYS been a given.  Our perverted culture is...which is all just a bunch of puppets to those trillionaires who have been trying to decrease the population for some time now using:  the eugenics movement, Margaret Sangor's birth control league (now Planned Parenthood), psych guys and gals changing their ever-changing disorder list to serve those with money, saying the unnatural act of sodomy is not a disorder in relationships (hmm?), no fault divorce (where children are concerned?), the pill and all forms of contraception, abortion (the murder of the natural outcome--conception, a new life, a baby--by an act of intimacy that was meant to be between a husband and wife exclusively who have vowed to be faithful to their covenant of love, welcoming children, bringing them up in the Faith and providing for them)...and now we may add 2 partners (well, 2 at this time, until they want that increased) since parenting is not all that important (who needs a Father and a Mother?) and call them "married."  No Mam, religious freedom means that you don't mess with what has always been and always will be no matter what some disordered human being may say.

Cardinal Dolan, shame on you!  Do you see what is happening and what has happened on your watch?  Please, please awaken!  It is time that you and all U.S. Bishops marched on the White House and those halls of in-Justice in Washington D.C.  Our Lord is truly offended by those who claim to be Catholic and who politically mock, spit upon, and flog our Lord and His Body, the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.  How many Supreme Court Justices claim to be Catholic?  Did a Catholic write the decision?  I would so very much appreciate some wisdom from you on these most critical subjects.  Please, dear Cardinal Dolan, email me as soon as you have time.  You have my prayers, daily, as do all of our Bishops, our Pope Francis, and our Church.

and then the Boston College speaker ...

Your Emminence,

Peace of our Ascended Lord be with your Spirit.  I thank you for approving my earlier post (it did take about 3 weeks for it to show up, which means probably only you and I read it, which is fine...just so you are reading it).  You have a good deal of charm; however, your lack of understanding the potential consequences of one immigration bill vs. another may be as profound as your lack of understanding the consequences of the Affordable Care Act (with or without the mandate).  Please lead your flock regarding the hottest, should be front page issues of the day--Abortion.  I am copying a website where you can go to support Cardinal O'Malley and his boycott due to the invitation of PM of Ireland who has a pro-abort/death agenda.  The website also gives you contact info for President Leahy of Boston College.

Dear Cardinal Dolan, please "take courage" as our Pope Francis quotes our Lord, and stand with Cardinal O'Malley (from the rooftops if necessary) and encourage all U.S. Bishops to do likewise.  UNITE UNDER THE LORD'S BANNER!

God's blessings upon you, guiding you each day,

Your sister in Christ,


Your Eminence,

You always have our prayers.  BUT, you do too little too late.  Is this the Governor Cuomo the Catholic in good standing according to you?  This is so transparent by Governor Cuomo's words that he is NOT Catholic...he serves Satan.  I wouldn't take a dime from the state of NY for my Catholic schools, I would publicly denounce Governor Cuomo and call him out ... I pray this servant of Satan does not even walk into a Catholic Church (unless it is straight for the confessional).  Follow Bishop Poprocki's lead and march on the capitol building in Albany.  Prayer support is with you.  Call upon the pro-life movement who does not want this legislation.  BUT, do not be silent.  Please, dear Cardinal Dolan, please save lives and save souls.
As for immigration, this is not your forte nor is it part of your job description.  Let them work it out.  Prayer, yes, but do not support anything that could backfire on you and upon us all.
Time for you to get your Irish up and take down the pro-murder/dismemberment of babies Italian whose soul sinks faster and faster each day.  Perhaps then he will awaken, repentant and contrite.
