My first response was to ask you to take down the Twitter news link. I read the Bishop's statement and then several comments. What a kick in the stomach. I feel like I'm walking that hill to Calvary, following Jesus. I hope it's just anonymity that makes them so bold else I fear for we faithful. God bless all our faithful bishops. Pride = Deadly Sin.
