The bulletin for this weekend states:
Happy Pride Weekend! The St. Louis Pride Parade steps off at noon Sunday on South Grand. Blessings on all the LGBTQ folk and families who have found a spiritual home at Saint Cronan — thank you for sharing your journey of faith with us all.And some wonder why this continues at a Catholic parish?
Finally, Louis Lears writes a farewell note to the St Cronan community:
The Pastors’ Peace
My Dear CommunityDissent and obstinacy - do good works make up for these evils?
Many of you know that this is my last week as a member of the Pastoral Team. I will continue to be an active member of our parish and neighborhood family through the end of August...
In the past 2½ years, you have taught me how to pastor, how to lead and how to follow, how to accompany and how to vision. You have been patient and encouraging as I learned—with my amazing colleagues and brothers Seán and Gerry—to be a member of the Pastoral Team....
From the homily on "Catholic Profession" from the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost, we read:
It would be of no use to say then: "Lord, I am a Catholic; the Church is my mother; I have professed the faith, I have received Sacraments, I have known and held the truth." Christ would say to us: "Not every one that saith, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doth the will of My Father who is in heaven....I never knew you; depart from Me, you that work iniquity."Who is supporting the opposition of the natural moral law and of the teachings of Christ and His Church?
Now by open violence of persecution, now by insidious temptations of worldly advantages, now by attacking Catholic education, now by the spread of evil ideas, immoral ideas, revolutionary ideas by means of the press, by calumniating the Church, holding her sacred teachings up to ridicule as old-fashioned, childish and superstitious; attacking the sacred institutions of marriage and the family, advocating divorce and giving facilities by law for the violation of holy matrimony, the remarriage of divorced persons, [and sanctioning homosexuality] - one professes by one's membership of the Catholic Church, to be against all this.The answer is clear!
