If You Start from the Idea They All Marxists: We must obey God rather than Man Edition

“I expect to die in bed, my suc­ces­sor will die in prison and his suc­ces­sor will die a mar­tyr in the pub­lic square. His suc­ces­sor will pick up the shards of a ruined soci­ety and slowly help rebuild civ­i­liza­tion, as the church has done so often in human history.”

Car­di­nal Fran­cis George

Appar­ently Car­di­nal George’s prophecy is being fast for­warded

In a stun­ning devel­op­ment, some mil­i­tary priests are fac­ing arrest if they cel­e­brate mass or prac­tice their faith on mil­i­tary bases dur­ing the fed­eral gov­ern­ment shutdown.

This is right out of the Soviet play­book

With the gov­ern­ment shut­down, many [gov­ern­ment ser­vice] and con­tract priests who min­is­ter to Catholics on mil­i­tary bases world­wide are not per­mit­ted to work – not even to vol­un­teer,” wrote John Schlageter, the gen­eral coun­sel for the Arch­dio­cese for the Mil­i­tary Ser­vices USA, in an op-​ed this week. “Dur­ing the shut­down, it is ille­gal for them to min­is­ter on base and they risk being arrested if they attempt to do so.”

The most Amaz­ing thing? I sus­pect arrest of Catholic Priests for say­ing mass will be extremely pop­u­lar with some the Demo­c­rat base, par­tic­u­larly those cel­e­brat­ing Wendy Davis, how­ever the Bible is rather clear about this:

When they had brought them in and made them stand before the San­hedrin, the high priest ques­tioned them,

We gave you strict orders (did we not?) to stop teach­ing in that name. Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teach­ing and want to bring this man’s blood upon us.”

But Peter and the apos­tles said in reply, “We must obey God rather than men.

Acts 5:2729

Any Catholic Priest who would refrain from cel­e­brat­ing the Mass by order of the Gov­ern­ment is not wor­thy of his collar.

“I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history.”

Cardinal Francis George

Apparently Cardinal George’s prophecy is being fast forwarded

In a stunning development, some military priests are facing arrest if they celebrate mass or practice their faith on military bases during the federal government shutdown.

This is right out of the Soviet playbook

“With the government shutdown, many [government service] and contract priests who minister to Catholics on military bases worldwide are not permitted to work – not even to volunteer,” wrote John Schlageter, the general counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Services USA, in an op-ed this week. “During the shutdown, it is illegal for them to minister on base and they risk being arrested if they attempt to do so.”

The most Amazing thing? I suspect arrest of Catholic Priests for saying mass will be extremely popular with some the Democrat base, particularly those celebrating Wendy Davis, however the Bible is rather clear about this:

When they had brought them in and made them stand before the Sanhedrin, the high priest questioned them,

“We gave you strict orders (did we not?) to stop teaching in that name. Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and want to bring this man’s blood upon us.”

But Peter and the apostles said in reply, “We must obey God rather than men.

Acts 5:27-29

Any Catholic Priest who would refrain from celebrating the Mass by order of the Government is not worthy of his collar.
