I know all of you have been following the Catholic news on this Fr Pfleger character receiving an award from Cardinal George of Chicago. (I’ve been busy being in and out of town and haven’t had chance to comment fully on this..
a. Effectively, most of the attempts at “black” evangelization are “We think you’re too stupid to handle a regular Mass with no Liturgical Abuse, so we do our best to make it just like the Protestant background” (You know, the same thing they do with the teens)
b. Seeing sites like St Sabina’s scares the living daylights out of me. No mention of the words Mass, Confession, Devotions, nothing Catholic. I would of thought it was protestant if I didn’t know any better.
c. Fr Pfleger needs a course in the Spiritual works of Mercy again. We don’t do these things for praise and honour, we do them for the simple fact that Jesus commanded us to do so, and our love for God flows the love of neighbor, that is to say, charity.
d. This guy needs to be defrocked, his faculties removed, I could even make a case for Cardinal George needing to go at this point. If you’re trying to avoid schism, I’ll take the parish Your Eminence, the parishoners won’t be mad because of my race (they’ll be mad after they find out I’m a loyal son to the Church, but, we’ll cross that bridge when we’ll get to it ;))
e. Cults of personality are exactly what’s avoided when you move people. He should have been moved after the 6 year period.
f. There are sinners in the Church, I’m so surprised…not!
