I just received an email from ChurchMilitant.tv with the news that Vatican spokesman Father Rosica has had his attorneys send a letter to David Domet who writes the Vox Cantoris blog for publishing the heretical things Father Rosica has said. Here is the report from ChurchMilitant.tv where Mr. Domet is interviewed.
I received this news within minutes of my most recent post where I discussed Pope Francis’ words abouts having brothers and sisters fighting and becoming estranged from each other. I expressed the view that those in the Vatican who seek to undermine the Faith would take his well-said words to heart as we move forward. I guess Father Rosica was not among the 9,000 at today’s Angelus.
It has become clear to me over the last week or so that the spotlight glaring on these men has been bothering them, as they realize that Faithful Catholics will not stand for this program of theirs, where sin will be called good, and where the Eucharist will be profaned by its reception by those who are in a state of mortal sin, blessed by the Church. Apparently, I was right.
Father Rosica, according to ChurchMilitant.tv’s report, is complaining about the public statements made by him that Mr. Domet has publicized and has demanded that the posts be removed. This is the kind of man who holds a position at the Vatican as a spokesman. I believe he is also behind the Salt and Light TV programs coming from Canada. So, Father Rosica spouts basically heresy and now wants to hide this. No doubt he was very proud of himself when he uttered them, no doubt convinced of his sagacity and progressive spin on the Faith. However, he is apparently now ashamed of himself when those remarks are shared around the world, and held up to the scorn and derision of real Catholics.
What a shameful disgrace. What a shameful disgrace at the start of Lent.
Who else is behind Father Rosica’s weak shot across the bow? Is this the way the Church will treat its Faithful members? Is this how Pope Francis would stop internecine strife, by silencing opposition? Is this what Pope Francis meant about the Church reaching out to the marginalized?
Catholic lawyers should be lining up and defending against this garbage attack, where truth is sought to be obscured and denied and then the heterodox author cries foul when he’s exposed. Real Catholics everywhere should and must be denouncing this attack and any other that comes, loudly and strongly. Father Rosica ought to be sent to a monastery on a windswept island for many years of penance, and he should foot the bill for all of it from the proceeds of his salt and light channel.
Here is the text of the letter sent by Father Rosica’s lawyer. He’s worried about damages to his reputation from pointing out his heterodoxy. He couldn’t give a hoot about leading souls to hell. More importantly, he’s worried ultimately about the financial hit he’s said to be suffering from canceled subscriptions to his salt and light channel. He’s been lining his pockets and now the pockets are getting lighter as people have figured him out. If you’re giving this man your money, you should know he’s using it to attempt to silence those who point out what a fake Catholic he is, parading around as a Catholic priest, sucking at the teat of the Church, and actively undermining the Faith from within.
Father Rosica has so lost sight of reality that he believes that this will help him. He has no fear of divine retribution because he doesn’t apparently believe in the Divine in the first place. He’s been getting fat and lining his pockets by duping Catholics and that is the problem. Apparently there are not enough adultery with Holy Communion and gay marriage-supporting catholycs that will pay to support his honesty about what he wants and believes, so he must silence those who reveal what he stands for so he can continue to line his pockets at the expense of duped Catholics. You know the ones, you and me who they used to count on to not pay attention to what they were doing and to be silent if we did.
As far as I know, the laws of Canada mirror American law, where truth is an absolute bar to any legal assault like this, and even more so when the statements are made publicly. There is also something we call freedom of the press in America that I believe Canadians also enjoy.
If you are in New York and you get such a letter, please let me know. At least one attorney will be there to help.
