For so long we have been left as sheep, surrounded by wolves, who often move amidst the flock devouring wandering lambs with great ease.
|Cardinal O'Brien: A Good Shepherd Simply Doing His Duty.|
Bravo to Cardinal O'Brien. Grave times often bring forward great saints. One thinks of St Thomas More and St John Fisher and all the wonderful fighting saints of the European Counter Reformation.
We must all now as Catholics and 'men of goodwill' speak out. To our friends, workmates, neighbours and family members. In a controlled, informed and intelligent way: but there has to be a grass roots movement against uprooting thousands of years of marriage, alongside the voices of those in positions of power (the Anglican Lord Carey has also done well to speak out in a no-nonsense manner).
I hope Catholic bloggers will "do our bit" to spread the word, defend Catholic Truth and 'mobilise the troops' in this battle to stop some very silly politicians overturning in a few months what has stood for thousands of years.
It's a fight we are honour-bound to join, in the footsteps of the good Cardinal.
