Call To Action For Faithful Catholics - Diocese Of Richmond VA

Michael Hichborn of Lepanto institute has discovered that a Catholic Church in Williamsburg VA is slated to host the so-called "ordination" of a female "bishop" for the episcopalians.  Here is the announcement.  Let a few things sink in.
  • An espiscopal "ordination", that isn't really an ordination for these protestants have no valid orders, is slated to occur in a Catholic church.  This is sacrilege, a mockery of the Sacrament of Holy Orders.  That this is being permitted to happen in a Catholic church is an utter disgrace, if not a commission of mortal sin on the part of the pastor of St Bede's.  It is a violation of Canon Law, specifically Canons 1210-1212.
  • The so-called "ordinand" is a woman.  Our Lord made clear that the Sacrament of Holy Orders is reserved to men.  This raises an interesting question: is this debacle being allowed to occur, to anesthesize us to the attempts in the Vatician to push women's ordinations?
The bishop of the Diocese of Richmond (suffrigan diocese of the Archdiocese of Baltimore) is Bishop Barry Knestout.  Readers of this blog will recall that Bishop Knestout, while an auxiliary bishop here under Cardinal Wuerl, expelled a faithful Catholic priest for withholding Communion from a flaming lesbian.  He apologized - to the lesbian.  Father Guarnizo himself told the entire truth about the unethical treatment that he received from the one who is now Bishop of Richmond.

A petition is being circulated online to Bishop Knestout to put a halt to that planned sacrilege.  Here it is and I urge you to sign and circulate it.  I understand that a picket is being planned, should our voices be ignored.  If the local church wants to avoid a picket, they need only remember that they are Catholics and simply tell the episcopaleans to take their little ceremoney elsewhere.

Here is contact information for the diocese.  Here it is for St Bede's.  In particular, let Msgr Lehman know that his hokey attempt at justifying the sacrilege falls flat on its face, and let both of them know that a picket is in the works should they be so imprudent and careless about their duties as to allow this to happen.


  1. I think this fake 'ordination' says it is to the 'one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church'. This is terribly misleading. How can the pastor and bishop allow it unless they are also episopalians. Ecumenism is a dead end road and who has it brought to the true faith?

  2. Hereesy pprevails one holy
    catholc and apostolic declines and the devil rejoiced
