When the list of celebrants for the 74th Annual Outdoor Novena to Our Lady of Carmel was announced, many St. Louis Catholics were shocked and surprised to see Bishop Richard Stika listed as the main celebrant for Tuesday, July 13. The St. Louis Church Militant Resistance Chapter took action, starting with a letter written to the Carmelite Order from member Bob Baker who has supported the Carmelites for years. Then leaders of the chapter asked for a meeting with the Mother Superior and explained their concerns. A few days later, Bishop Stika was replaced with another celebrant. Thank goodness!

Stika was the chancellor here in St. Louis when Archbishop Burke was removed. Rigali left and left behind his sister, Sister Charlotte Rigali, to spy on Burke and keep him updated at his new gig in Philly. He then orchestrated the removal of Burke in 2008.—I have two emails from a former chancery official to verify this. As a reward for his role, Stika was named the Bishop of Knoxville. Rigali then retired and is now “in residence” at the chancery in the Diocese of Knoxville.—-There is a current hullaballoo in the Diocese of Kansas City, Mo over the traditional Mass. Bishop James Johnston came from Knoxville to replace the traditional Robert Finn. A cult has taken over the Church and the priesthood is being phased out.—It is all about homosexuality and the rejection of traditional morality. Wives must be released from the constriction of male domination. “Free choice” is right in the middle of all of this.
