While you are at it, pray for the bishops. Go to Mass for them, pray the Rosary for them, spend time in Adoration and ask God to grace our bishops with holy boldness in the face of dissent. May they take back the Church handed down to them by the apostles who gave their lives for the truth. If we want the grip of dissidents to loosen, we have to pray for our bishops and priests.
Please draw to their attention, that Bishop Wenski is offering a Mass of Reparation. This is something rarely heard of today and we need to be doing more of it.
Finally, if you missed it, be sure to read Bishop D'Arcy's latest statement to the faithful, in which he strongly rebuked Fr. Jenkins saying "...the terrible breach between Notre Dame and the Church cannot continue".
