Attacks on bishops gone too far

/ 05:10 AM December 14, 2018

The latest attack on the bishops by enticing the faithful to kill them goes too far.  In this context, I would like to raise the following questions:

(1)  Shall we stand by and watch the bishop-bashers whose crass and condescending tongues continue to badmouth and threaten our bishops?


(2)  Shall we respond with anything more than generic platitudes written in a pastoral letter?

(3)  When will the bashing stop? Where will it end?


(4)  Is an attack on bishops considered an attack on Jesus Christ? Is there a reciprocal union between the bishops and Christ?

If these attacks are not halted at once, they might lead to an escalation not only against the bishops, but also against the entire Church.
