I haven't been writing about my topic because I find it so depressing. Good things are being destroyed by people with a bad ideology. The people of St Joachim, though, seem to have gotten me energized. Their blog is here. They are also on Facebook, but I'm not so I don't know how to tell you how to find them there. The Philadelphia Church Project has a great post on the parish closings, with a very appropriate title, here.
One reason I find this all so sad is that I am sure that this would be much easier for everyone if the people who are supposed to be helping the archbishop would just help the archbishop. I don't think he's afraid of work or of making decisions. If he had competent help and accurate information things would be different. I think he belongs to only one organization which would have a conference at Harrah's in Las Vegas.
Prayer seems to be the only answer.
St. Ambrose pray for us.
St. Charles Borromeo pray for us.
St. John Neumann pray for us.
