Saturday, Pope Benedict XVI wrote a poignant apostolic letter to his bishops regarding the ministry of charity in the Catholic community. In the letter, the Pope sternly reminds the bishops of their responsibility to insure the money collected from the faithful does not end up in the hands of those who work in contradiction to the teachings of the Church.
The Pope is cleaning house in the social justice wing of the Church! No longer will bishops be allowed to look the other way when community organizers hijack the Catholic teaching of “social justice” to advocate for their liberal agenda of abortion and homosexuality. I pray this will encourage Catholic democrat leaders like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and Kathleen Sebelius to turn away from their assault on the faithful.
I commend Pope Benedict XVI for standing up to this evil attack on marriage and life. The Church cannot yield on Biblical teachings to accommodate a perspective that is rooted in worldly pursuits.
And whosoever shall cause one of these little ones that believe on me to stumble, it were better for him if a great millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. Mark 9:42
