Dialogue with Your Bishop Can Be the Start of a New Era

You’ll forgive me if I point out yet another article by Dr. Jeff Mirus of Catholic Culture.

This latest one is a posting to the Catholic Culture blog entitled “The Wave of the Future.” It deals with some fairly recent events at the hospital of St. John & St. Elizabeth in London, England.

If you take a moment or two to read it I think you will be encouraged to some degree and also forced to agree that when Catholics make a serious commitment to hold their Bishops accountable to Catholic teaching, some pretty amazing things can happen. The posting by Dr. Mirus is more proof for my argument that communicating concerns to your Bishop [or to the Pope, if necessary] can be the most productive and earth-shaking exercise on earth. This should not be surprising, given the God ordained role of Bishops and the authority granted to them from Heaven.

So start giving some serious thought to writing/meeting with your Bishop. And in case someone misunderstands, I am not suggesting that such action is a substitute for prayer. We must have BOTH if we are to be victorious in seeing God’s will accomplished on earth.

“Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Remember?
