Are They Mice or Men?

The U.S. Catholic Bishops are holding their semi-annual meeting and it’s time they prove whether they are politically correct mice or men worthy of the blood of the martyrs.

One of the topics for discussion is the scandal of the president of the United States boldly claiming he is Catholic, receiving the Holy Eucharist weekly in front of adulating supporters, and promoting, under his Administration’s policies, countless acts which violate the sanctity of life and the teachings of the Church to which he claims allegiance.

It’s the Biden Administration, the buck stops with Joe, and whether in the throes of dementia or acting out a cunning and divisive ploy, the scandal is incalculable.

The Bishops’ meeting had not even started when the media began accusing the Church of “weaponizing” the Holy Eucharist. That attitude only confirms bias and ignorance on their part. As Bishops of the Roman Catholic Church, as successors to the very Apostles themselves, they are mandated by Jesus Christ to protect the Faith. If they and we truly believe the Holy Eucharist is indeed the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, then this Sacrament must be protected from sacrilege at the hands of those who are not worthy.

Just this week, the Biden Administration – unbeknownst to its leader? I think not – initiated an appeal of a court decision made earlier this year, a decision that affirmed protection of religious hospitals, clinics and doctors from being forced to do sex reassignment mutilation surgeries. Under the guise of preventing discrimination, the appeal wants such mutilations to continue.

The courage of the U.S. Church’s leaders is on the line this week. Will they cave to the wickedness and snares of the devil and wink at a visible scandal, thereby also giving a “pass” to every soul ensnared in deadly sin to desecrate the Eucharist? Or will they stand firm with the likes of John the Baptist and proclaim the truth, no matter what the cost. The Baptist lost his head over truth. The Bishops stand to lose only plaudits of the media and the 30 pieces of silver of federal funding for their various and sundry facilities.

Which will it be? Pray for them.
