Another Word About the Crisis: Fr. John Lankeit Responds

If you’re following the current and deplorable scandal, then you’re likely reading about Archbishop Vigano and his courageous 11-page letter, which reveals some truly disgusting information about many higher-ups in the Church, Pope Francis included.

As many of you are rightly outraged, I offer this insightful homily by Fr. John Lankeit in Phoenix, Arizona.  (Click HERE for it on YouTube.)

I promise it’s worth it.  He describes how it is that priests/bishops/cardinals become “Fr. Judas Iscariot.”  It begins with small betrayals, small disobediences.  Then, if it’s not stopped, it escalates.  I know I’ve seen this at the Mass, just as Fr. Lankeit describes it.

Luke 16: 10

“He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much.”

Let this be a reminder to us all.
