VIDEO: Plea to our priests–Are you doing everything God is calling you to do to be saints?

Video plea to all priests of the Archdiocese first and foremost, as well of all lay Catholics:
Are you doing everything that God is calling you to do to be a saint?
Priests, we pray for you daily. We understand the spiritual attack that spiritual fatherhood, as well as fatherhood, is under. But are you listening to what God wants you to do, even if it is difficult for you?
“For the gifts and the call are irrevocable” (Romans 11:29)
St. Joachim, pray for us!

VIDEO: Show Me the Data, Catholic Leadership Institute

I wrote directly to both Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) and to a Bishop on the Board of CLI to ask for the measurable data that CLI speaks about on their website ( https://www.catholicleaders.org/) which supposedly shows an increase in both Mass attendance and collection plate at their “next generation parishes”. Two months later, there has been no response. Why won’t they share the data? Our Archbishop and the Bishop on CLI’s Board both believe that CLI should share this data. So Catholic Leadership Institute — SHOW US THE DATA!More

VIDEO: St. Clare of Assisi, Pray for Us!

St. Clare cared about glorifying God and saving souls, and she relied fully and completely on God with true reverence for the Eucharist. Like St. Clare, we must rely on God’s plan, as opposed to man’s plan. God is infinitely merciful AND perfectly just. If there is anything in “All Things New” that doesn’t follow Church law or Church teaching, we will all be held accountable for not speaking up and pushing back against it. The timing of the completion of “All Things New” on Pentecost 2023 is tied to the timing of the wrap up of the “Synod on Synodality” in the Catholic Church. If the results of the German Synod on Synodality is a preview of what is coming, we should all be very concerned! Even Pope Francis has said the German Synod went too far. If you love Fr. Chris Martin, please urge him to follow Church law and Church teaching when making plans for “All Things New” so we don’t end up with draconian and irreparable changes to our archdiocese. More

VIDEO: Spotlight on the Enablers

Everyone should watch the 2015 movie “Spotlight” about the investigative journalists who uncovered the 2002 Catholic Church abuse scandal in Boston. Twenty years later, these things are STILL going on in our Church. In the movie, some of the journalists/newspaper staff realize they have been part of the problem by enabling the Chancery and the Catholic hierarchy to do whatever they wanted against the law and against Church law. And who was the American Catholic Church leader who ran to be in front of the cameras and said that it was never going to happen again? Cardinal McCarrick, who has since been fully laicized because of his own sexual abuse problems. Ex-Cardinal McCarrick is who Archbishop Rozanski has brought to safe harbor in the St. Louis Archdiocese.

VIDEO: Requiem for a Church in Springfield, MA

In Springfield, Massachusetts, under Bishop Rozanski, there were likely Canon Law violations regarding demolishing a church a few days before Christmas. The application to the city for demolition was only for the removal of the “dangerous” bell tower, yet the entire church was demolished! You can watch the entire story here:

VIDEO: Let’s talk Canon Law

How will we know if the Archdiocese and the Archbishop are following Canon Law during the All Things New process? Let’s look at Sts. Mary and Joseph Church that was put on the real estate market in 2021 for around $1,000,000. Make sure to read the documents below. The Archdiocese didn’t issue a Canonical Decree until after notifications and questions from the laity, (basically after the fact), which was then published in the April 4-10, 2022 issue of St. Louis Review, but saying it takes effect on March 7, 2022! You must issue the Canonical Decree BEFORE you even put it on the market.More

VIDEO: By What Authority?

On this Memorial of St. John Vianney, patron saint of our priests, the question of authority comes to mind. St. Peter is the first one to recognize Jesus as the Christ. This revelation was given to him by God the Father. Yet, St. Peter then started thinking like man, not God, by rebuking Jesus. Will All Things New follow the authority of the Church as stated in Canon Law as well as the Holy Spirit or is it just man’s plan? One of the comments we got from the last video asked for more Canon Law examples. A more thorough video on that is coming out soon.More

VIDEO: More Questions Than Answers

Will we be allowed to have a listening session or dialogue with church leaders PRIOR to the rolling out the final plan? Or are we stuck with the 5-week session at the END of the plan, that seem to be set up to make us feel like we were heard. Going forward, let’s look at Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cincinnati. What happened after they implemented these plans in their dioceses? It is up to us to ask these questions and seek the answers, to be informed, and speak up!More

VIDEO: The Lord detests different weights and measures

What will the criteria be for closing parishes due to “All Things New”? Will the Archdiocese compare the same criteria for each parish across the entire Archdiocese? Why aren’t they being transparent about this? Also, what are these Archdiocesan guidelines such as how full Mass attendance must be (50% or better), and how often a priest can celebrate Mass (once a day only) based upon? More

VIDEO: Following the Holy Spirit or High Dollar Consultants?

Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) has a track record of working with East Coast dioceses who are in dire financial situations due to the sexual abuse crisis and/or financial scandals. Before you cheerlead for the most sweeping changes in our Archdiocesan history, ask the leadership to show the evidence that St. Louis needs this model. We are not in bankruptcy, we do not have a priest shortage yet, and as far as we know, we don’t have a ton of sexual abuse cases. So simply put: why are we doing this??More

Lunch with the Archbishop

VIDEO: We’re NOT Grieving the Past

We are NOT grieving the past or grieving change. We are talking about the present. We want to know what the Holy Spirit is telling you, Archbishop Rozanski, today regarding the closures of our churches and taking canonical rights away from our priests and our parishes. We want to know your “Unifying Vision” and that it comes from the Holy Spirit and it aligns with the Catholic faith. We want to hear it from you! Not from a slick consulting company or your hirelings.More

VIDEO: Be a Joyful Catholic

Join us tomorrow Friday July 29th at 9:30 am for a Rosary at the Archbishop’s Residence, 4510 Lindell Boulevard, SW corner of Lindell and N. Taylor; park free catty-corner on surface lot at NE corner. We will dedicate one Hail Mary for each parish in the Archdiocese, as well as pray for Archbishop Rozanski and all Archdiocesan leaders.More

VIDEO: What are Planning Areas?

Planning Areas seem to be a Catholic version of what gerrymandering is in politics. Your parish is compared to a group of parishes that they selected, not necessarily based on location or proximity. The decision to close or keep parishes is then being based upon certain data points. The problem is that these decisions could be based on different data points for every planning area! This allows them to cherry-pick which parishes to keep or close. It’s time to ask your parish priest and those 3-7 parishioners on the All Things New committee to share ALL the data from your parish, as well as to ask for ALL the data for the ENTIRE archdiocese. What do they have to hide? We are the Catholic faithful.More

    How sad. My parents were married there in 1952. I wasn’t aware the church was being sold. Wonder what will be done with the funds?

    We continue to spread the word to the laity about the abusive and arrogant behaviors of the Archbishop and Fr. Martin, alias hatchet man in this process. We have asked for private meetings with him but we are not worthy of his time as he is a busy man. (His words).

    1. Raymond Stephens Avatar

      The “Deep Church” has no regard for the laity. This has been going on for many years (at least since 1963), and I know firsthand of at least three churches that were sold or demolished – one ” Assumption of BVM” (13th. and Sidney), St. Agnus also on Sidney St. and St. Boniface in South St. Louis near Lemay. I know this is only the tip of the iceberg and appears to be headed for further aggression unless these people are held accountable.
      Somehow and someway, we need to stand together and end this disregard of the laity of the Catholic Church.

VIDEO: Catholic Hunger Games

The movie “Hunger Games” pitted groups against one another keeping the majority of the people in poverty and distress while the small group of Elite had elaborate parties while watching the groups fight one another. Are we facing a Catholic version of the same with All Things New?More

VIDEO: Is 1% a Lot of Listening?

We heard from the Archdiocese that there was going to be a lot of listening sessions with “All Things New”. So far, there have been NONE. And only 5 weeks of listening sessions are scheduled for 178 Parishes, with facilitators overseeing them all. The Archbishop, Bishop and Vicar of Strategic Planning will only be able to attend very few or none. And the listening sessions are slotted at the END of the planning, so this feedback will most likely not be considered at all.More

VIDEO: It’s the Enablers, Stupid!

The corruption and evil in the Church is all about the Enablers. Much of the corruption is allowed to continue and grow because of people who allow the evil. To understand this more fully, watch this Vortex episode: https://www.churchmilitant.com/video/episode/vortex-the-enablers
