The Results of the Diocesan Reorginization
Editor: As predicted, none of the parishes closed were the parishes which host a spirit of rebellion against Catholic teaching. This reorganization was purely logistical and "honored" the integrity of the childless but wealthy homosexual-friendly communities and their deplorable counterparts in the suburbs.
For the most part, the parishes which were closed were part of dying parishes peopled by the descendants of the good people of eastern European descent.
We think it's safe to say that this Archdiocese is increasingly and inexorably moving toward an attempt at the liquidation of whatever remains of its sensus catholicus. This, really, is another sign of the fruits of Vatican II. Perhaps there will come a time when most people don't know about it, don't refer to it and don't care about it. Until then, we have the Catholic Faith, unspoiled, which we have a duty to learn, even if our Shepherds are bedazzled by large, ugly modern facilities and have consigned the spiritual welfare of their flocks to Godless academic professionals and impenitent homosexuals.
Meanwhile, in other parts of the world, remote and not so remote, real Catholics continue to pray their rosaries, make salutary sacrifices and encourage their children to vocations in the religious life or to foster large, wholesome, fruitful families.
