Intercessors ask associates for continued support

Catholic World News - October 28, 2010

The Intercessors of the Lamb—the civil corporation affiliated with the group that was formally suppressed by Archbishop George Lucas of Omaha, Nebraska earlier this month—has issued a message encouraging supporters to continue their prayers and soliciting their contributions.

A “statement from our foundress” posted on the web site of the Intercessors for Christ—unsigned, but apparently written by Nadine Brown—thanks friends for their support and assures them that the group will “continue to welcome your prayer requests and your requests for discernment.” The letter reminds potential donors that the Intercessors of the Lamb, Inc., remains a non-profit corporation, and donations are tax-deductible.

“Obedience has been and continues to be a hallmark of our charism as reflected in the Lamb of God Himself,” the message states. Nadine Brown points out that when Archbishop Lucas asked her to resign her posts as head of the Association of the Hermit Intercessors of the Lamb and as a director of the civil corporation, she obeyed.

Archbishop Lucas formally suppressed the Association of the Hermit Intercessors of the Lamb, and discouraged the faithful from involvement or contributions to the group. The Omaha archdiocese pointed out that “the companion group – the Intercessors of the Lamb – never received canonical recognition from the Church.”

    Brown equivocates. While claiming obedience, she seeks donations to the (civil) corporation that refuses to cooperate with the bishop in reforming the (religious) association. She claims independence as laity, yet speaks of a continuing charism. A canon lawyer found questionable financial practices and a flawed understanding of prayer and spiritual discernment. Most members have separated from Brown & board. To support the obedient ones: http://www.archomaha.org/newsevents/intercessors.html.
