    “…As bishops came out and began to address #Vigano and the crisis…Many seemed more interested in their public image and careers than the toll their incredulity was having on the Church…The fact is, though, that this whole crisis has produced much spiritual fruit in my life. For those who feel ready to throw in the towel, I hope to offer some encouragement…I can control only what I do. Our Lady gave the laity specific instructions at #Fatima, too: pray the #rosary every day, and do #penance in reparation for sin…I have gone back to abstaining from meat and food outside meals on Fridays…the connection between the crisis and the decline in our liturgical sensibilities, so I attended a traditional #Latin Mass…Pray that Christ delivers His Church from its scourges, its mockery, and its cross, which is weighed down by bad shepherds. Pray that Christ protects His Church from a world that would crucify it on the cross of abuse and corruption, if it could. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.”
