Post What is WRONG with these people?


If you ever doubted that there is a battle going on all around us — a true battle — between good and evil, and that that battle engages every single one of us whether we are aware of it or not, the events of the past week really ought to clarify that point for everyone.

In the face of the unspeakable evil of the slaughter of children, good broke through, and the stories are legion — good people of all faiths and of no faith at all have moved with generosity and concern to do whatever small acts of kindness they can, for the people of Newtown and also for the world, in general. The good has broken through the evil, counterbalancing the evil and and good is saying that it will not allow evil to win. We have seen this up-close-and-personally with the tremendous outpouring of toys you folks have generously sent to New Jersey, when all you needed to hear was “there are kids in need.”

The goodness is so heartening that when you read something like this — the harassment of priests who are trying to minister to grieving families — you just have to ask, as we have before, what the hell is wrong with people?

Do you remember this picture, of these priests, Monsignor Robert Weiss and Father Luke Suarez, at the scene of carnage in Newtown?






What is WRONG with these people?

No, it’s more than that. It’s a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

Yeah it really shocked me that some idiot would harass the priests and the Church who is only trying to help these poor people. And the fact that someone issued a bomb threat to the parish in Newtown is just horrific. I can't imagine how evil people must be in order to do such stupid things.

This is so sad ;( My prayers for Father Luke, Monsignor Weiss, and the St. Rose parish.
