Catholic Spirit

The Archdiocesan newspaper Catholic Spirit ran my letter in the January 25th issue.

I was one of two letters critical of Sen. Torres Ray's stance on abortion. There must have been many others because Editor Joe Towalski (and the author of the article) wrote an editorial about the responses he was getting all week critical of him and the paper.

My biggest gripe and sorrow at this moment is that the evidence is all there right in black and white that some of our local "Catholic" elected officials are clearly cooperating and endorsing a mortal sin but nothing is done about it by our local church leadership. Furthermore, the Archdiocesan paper NEVER once comes right out and says that Sen. Torres Ray is wrong, and sinful, and that her beliefs are in complete opposition to Catholic teaching.

Furthermore, Mr. Towalski goes out of his way in his editorial to "white-wash" Sen. Torres Ray and other "Catholic" politicians who advocate for abortion by saying they do other good things. In essence, let's overlook the big non-negotiable SIN and focus on all the good things. Satan has probably done some things that some might consider good too.

To further make my point, there is a note from the Archbishop in the same issue that says:

"A recent flyer announcing that "Rev. Regina Nicolosi" will celebrate a liturgy on January 26, 2007 at the Prospect Park United Methodist Church requires the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis to issue the following statement:

Mrs. Regina Nicolosi is not a validly ordained priest of the Roman Catholic Church. Members of the Roman Catholic Church should not participate in celebrations of the sacraments that are conducted by Regina Nicolosi, as those celebrations are invalid and are not in union with the local or universal church"

It's ABOUT time that something was even said by the our Leader about her. Long past time. Yet, she is still a member of a parish in Red Wing. I'm sure she still receives the Body and Blood of Our Lord. Her husband is a DEACON. I'm going to just say it: How much more evidence for an excommunication is needed?!? Mrs. Nicolosi persists in this delusion that she is a Catholic priest. She runs around causing scandal. She is committing sacrilege when she receives Communion. I'm praying really hard to curb my rage tonight, but I'm having a difficult time with it.

St. Michael, pray for us! Mother Mary, help us, help, we pray! Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us!

Maybe they should change their name to "The 'anti-catholic' Sprit"
