  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

The Duty of Bishops to Teach

No matter whether one likes it or not, the bishops have a right and duty to teach. Indeed, greater weight should be given the magisterial teachings of faith than the the objections of dissenters and secular leaders. There are few faith matters as central as the Eucharist.

While we are called as disciples to witness to Christ and the Gospel even in our private lives, given past experience I suspect the President is right about the bishops . . . nothing is going to happen.
