I fear that the Church has lost its prophetic voice. Where are the John the Baptists who will confront the Herods of our day?— Bishop Thomas Tobin (@ThomasJTobin1) October 29, 2021

Cardinal Burke even asked for all Catholics to pray for politicians who would violate Gods moral law clearly referring to Biden’s continual violation of the Christian stance on protecting the sanctity of life.
Please pray with me for the Church in the USA and in every nation, that she will be faithful and clear in defending the sanctity of the Holy Eucharist and safeguarding the souls of Catholic politicians who would grievously violate the moral law. https://t.co/vGj0uVkyAi— Cardinal Burke (@cardinalrlburke) October 29, 2021
