Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

“Respect and Charity”

December 3rd, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

I received an email regarding my attempted post at the blog which is in the process of canonizing Sr. Sobala. If anyone has noted, the only comment which the person who runs it has permitted is one which sings the praises of schismatic dissent.

The comment I tried to post contained the following:

  • quotes from Sr. Joan Sobala and Bishop Clark, all verified
  • statistics regarding Mass attendance at Our Lady of Lourdes, St. Anne, St. Mary’s Downtown
  • financial woes relating to the St. Anne cluster
  • all facts, no opinion

This is the email response I received:

I received your comment on my blog and wanted to respond to you personally. The blog is not a forum for personal attacks nor is it for airing personal grievances. Everyone who comments on the blog is expected to do so with respect and charity.

So, in the eyes of Sr. Julie, telling someone “you’re wrong” is a “personal attack.” In my eyes, it’s more charitable to defend the Church, Christ’s Bride, than it is to defend a woman who expresses clear contempt for the Church.

2 Corinthians 13-15
13 “…For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve…”

    Dear Matt,

    I received your comment on my blog and wanted to respond to you personally. The blog is not a forum for personal attacks. Comments which lack charity and respect reflect poorly on the one making the comment.

    Sister Julie

    Though to be fair, I did note in my deleted comment that it reflects poorly on the blog when the honor an avowed heretic…which…erm…well, uh, she, er, uhm…happens to be

    The devil always defends itself. These people lust for sin. They swim in a sea of satan's pride. They are drunk on it. Nothing new here.

    I think it's hilarious the nun(?) at that blog is actually sending this email out to multiple people!

    If anyone else got this message, please let me know.

    I just posted to Sr. Julie's blog saying I hope the Vatican investigates not only Sr. Joan Sobala, but her as well. That probably won't make it past moderation, right?

    I gave a fake e-mail, so no personalized rejection letter for me 🙁

    I left another comment saying how no nun has done more for the Church than Sr. Joan – and that she has done such wondrous things, not for her parishes, but for Our Lady of Victory, St. Boniface, and the Latin Mass Community.

    I spake the truth, concerning thee, dear sister.

    So much for an open, liberal church. A BIG tent church that welcomes ALL opinions with open arms! We are learning that liberals, such like those who ran that blog and the leaders of the DOR are the biggest tyrants and tolerate no opinions, other than their ow.

    i seem to recall that grosswirth doesn't even allow comments, and that the DOR youtube account tends to delete them, as well
