With the recent scandals rocking the Catholic Church here in America as in President Obama receiving an honorary degree at the University of Notre Shame to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claiming that abortion is an open-ended issue in the Church, we have seen a reemergence of ecclesial leadership on behalf of our shepherds. Many bishops have awoken to the fact that being “pastoral” has been a remarkable failure in resolving the deviancy emanating from Catholics and Catholic institutions.
The upsurge of young adults rediscovering their faith to the excellent parenting of Catholic families in raising fine orthodox Christian children, we have seen what is only the beginning of a Catholic renaissance here in America. And let us not forgot the ever faithful cradle Catholics among us that have contributed in keeping the faith in the tumult arising from the Second Vatican Council to today.
Catholics drew from the example of the papacy of John Paul II’s extraordinary holy life which was punctuated by the undermining of Communism and crushing Marxist elements of Liberation Theology. This continued with Pope Benedict XVI’s Reform of the Reform by liberalizing access to the Latin Mass and his ecumenical efforts of reuniting Anglicans to Holy Mother Church. It was inevitable that the bishops would rise in defense of the faith here in America due to these models of the Church Militant.
A prominent sign post is when disgruntled and bitter ex-priest James Carroll of the Boston Globe viciously attacks the Church for its orthodoxy you know that the Church has righted its course and is in a straight line towards the two columns of Saint John Bosco’s dreams. Satan will throw his minions at the Barque of Saint Peter to do everything in his power to disrupt it’s course but to no avail because the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Which brings me to RealCatholicTV.com‘s Michael Voris, S.T.B. of The Vortex. Mr. Voris has an excellent summation of the resurgence of the Catholic faithful’s orthodoxy and saying goodbye to heretics:
 Focus Shifts to Archbishop Wuerl; Washington Prelate on Hotseat on Pro-Abortion Politicians, Hilary White, LifeSiteNews.com. Archbishop Wuerl responded to criticism on why pro-abortion Senator John Kerry received Holy Communion in his Archdiocese instead of the correct procedure of denying the Eucharist, His Excellency responded, “How to respond to those in public office who support abortion legislation is open to various legitimate pastoral approaches.”(Archbishop Donald Wuerl is just one example, there are many more bishops that like to use the word ‘pastoral’ when approaching difficult situations instead of doing the charitable act of correction)
