Intercessors of the Lamb renew conflict with Omaha archdiocese

Catholic World News - February 14, 2011

The Intercessors of the Lamb has raised the stakes in its conflict with the Omaha, Nebraska, archdiocese, scheduling a major conference in July. The Omaha archdiocese has issued a reminder that public worship will be forbidden at that conference because of the canonical status of the sponsoring group, and priests are forbidden from administering the sacraments there.

The Intercessors were formally suppressed last October by Omaha’s Archbishop George Lucas, after the group refused to accept his authority. Although many members left the group, others have continued under the leadership of the founder, Nadine Brown. The Intercessors are now organizing joint prayer services with a local Evangelical Protestant group.

    Perhapa Bishops should take a similar tack with any and all "Catholic" entities within their dioceses - Creighton might even be at risk if Bishop Lucas applied the rule to them. It's high time to respond firmly to dissent and heresy in Catholic universities and colleges. Can a bishop remove priestly faculties and Catholic identity therein?

    Look what God has done: He has sifted out the wheat from the chaff. You know what He will do next. We ought to pray for the rest of the Intercessors.

    Oh goody, another nondenominational Christian group. Nothing they like better than a bunch of unhappy thwarted Catholics joining up.
