I have to admit, I am not exactly sure what to think of my Bishop resigning today. Both did, actually. Bp. Martino has been a bright star of late in American Catholicism (if there is such a thing.) He stood up for the Catholic faith against the dissenting minions as he made enemies of fake union members, denounced pro-abortion “Catholic” politicians, and tried to make the local Catholic universities fall in line with Church teaching.
The reason for the resignation has me a little baffled but I am in no position to judge. I only hope this does not bring disillusionment to the faithful still in the trenches doing their best to stand up for the faith now that a leader, a general so to speak, has fallen by the wayside. We have so much work to do for the Faith. I pray we do not lose heart and that the enemies of Holy Mother Church fail miserably and convert.
The vultures will be swirling. The liberals will think they have won a victory here. Perhaps. Perhaps not. Pray for Bp. Martino as he transitions to a quieter life. Pray for all of the detractors, the swirling vultures, the dissenters, and the politicians in the diocese that they would be converted. Pray for the faithful that they would not be given over to the will of the Enemy.
