In the end… The point here is, Voris needs to stop “Looking Down” on all who oppose his views and refocus his gaze on the Face of our Lord…
The second our eyes are taken from that of the Face of our Lord, we look down on all others who oppose our “view”, placing ourselves in “Lofty” positions. Rather then placing ourselves as sinners, standing shoulder to shoulder with each other, waiting in HOPE.
Father Barron never said hell was empty. As faithful, we are called to keep our eyes focused on the “Face of our Lord” at all times. Thus, we live in Christ We live in hope. We pray for the salvation of the entire world. See God in all. Not only where we think He may be.
I to agree. This needs to stop. Michael Voris Again Smears an Innocent Catholic
“YES, my dear brethren, all these rash judgments and all these interpretations come only from a person who has a secret pride, who does not know himself, and who dares to wish to know the interior life of his neighbour, something which is known to God alone. If only, my dear children, we were able to arrive at the stage of eradicating this first of the capital sins from our hearts, our neighbour would never do any wrong according to us. We should never amuse ourselves by examining his conduct. We should be content to do nothing else save weep for our own sins and work as hard as we could to correct them.”
– St. John Vianney

I agree with your short article. However, I think the same could be said about Fr. Barron – he’s just a little more sophisticated in his approach at criticizing the Church Militant crowd. The reality is: there is a division in the Church, and these two passionate men are at opposite sides of that division. Therein lies the contention. I’d like Mr. Vorhis to be more compassionate and less aggressive in his approach and I’d like Bishop Barron to show more fortitude – especially related to the Catholic Hierarchy’s feckless and spiritually vacuous approach to the Faith for the past 50 years.
The reality is: they’re both right and they’re both wrong. Neither will likely admit to their weakness, unfortunately….and thus the ways of men (PRIDE).
The BIG difference is, ONE is a Catholic Bishop with Authority and the other is not. Obedience is the Mother of Virtues.
