Today is the feast of my patron saint, St. Edmund, King and Martyr, the King of East Anglia and English Catholic hero who was martyred in 869 at the hands of infidels invading England - from Sweden. In 689 and for many centuries thereafter the Catholic Church took a strong line against invasions and infidel migrants.
I discovered today that the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales have a collective Twitter account and prefer, rather than tweet about St. Edmund or other saints, to tweet about a secular feast called the Transgender Day of Remembrance.
The first comments on their Lordships’ tweet:
One could imagine swift reprisals or a glare of disapproval from the Merciful One if there were Catholic events happening.
