VOTF: Honoring the Excommunicated

Over the last few years, I have written about Voice of the Faithful (VOTF). It is a an organization that is looking to tear down the Catholic Church. They are a dissenting organization and many of us have pointed this out.

Well it seems that they have nominated Fr. Roy Bourgeois (Maryknoll) as a "Priest of Integrity" Award. Many Maryknolls have been killed for upholding the faith. Fr. Bourgeois thinks he is a martyr for supporting women priests.

According to Diogenes of Catholic Culture:

Father Bourgeois incurred latae sententiae excommunication for participating in the attempted ordination of a woman. Undaunted by the threat of canonical penalty, he says that the Church’s failure to ordain women as priests amounts to spiritual assassination.

VOTF continues to meet at Holy Trinity in Washington DC. I have not followed up to see if they still meet at St. Rose of Lima (Clopper Road).

When will the Archbishop put an end to these dissenting organiations?

Yes, we don't need "dissenting" voices.

Too bad there weren't more "dissenting" voices heard during the reign of pedophilia among the priests eh?

Thank GOD Jesus was a "dissenter" among the Jews.

I suppose, like the church, my "dissenting" voice won't be heard...
