The plandemic of Covid1984 provided the hierarchy with a lot of data on the faithful and their pastors. It came as no surprise that most Novus Ordo parishes in suburbia complied with restrictions that the dioceses imposed before the State did. The SSPX defied the orders and had to add extra Masses to accommodate the visitors, many of whom came away with very different and positive attitudes about the Society from that experience. The FSSP dragged their feet. The spirit of Lefebvre still lives in certain quarters of that organization. With the ICKSP, things were different. They complied. From Chicago, Canon Talarico enthusiastically roped off the pews and admonished the faithful to wear masks. Presumably, they all got jabbed as Cupich mandated it, and their worldly traveling doesn't seem to have been curtailed. They shouldn't be surprised they are being picked off at this point, right after the traditional diocesan priests and the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius.
An appeaser feeds a crocodile in the hope that it will eat him last.
