BRAVO BISHOP THOMAS J. PAPROCKI, I PRAY THAT YOU MAY SOON BE THE NEXT CARDINAL ARCHBISHOP OF CHICAGO

unnamed-26

 I respectfully disagree and I explain why in this video, Bishop Paprocki https://vimeo.com/278575755?ref=fb-share&1

Summary:

By a 5-4 majority, the Supreme Court declared June 27 that one of its rulings from 1977 was “wrongly decided” and overruled it, in a case on whether public-sector unions could continue to make nonmembers pay fair-share fees not related to the unions’ lobbying and political efforts. Bishop Frank J. Dewane of Venice, Florida, chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development expressed disappointment with the decision.

Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield, IL respectfully disagrees with Bishop DeWane citing the unions support of abortion and Pope Leo XIII’s landmark 1891 encyclical Rerum Novarum which says It is clear that they must pay special and chief attention to the duties of religion and morality, and that social betterment should have this chiefly in view; otherwise they would lose wholly their special character, and end by becoming little better than those societies which take no account whatever of religion. What advantage can it be to a working man to obtain by means of a society material well-being, if he endangers his soul for lack of spiritual food? “What doth it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and suffers the loss of his soul?” (Mat. 16,26)

    I pray Bishop Paprocki does not ultimately suffer too much blow back from Rome over his courageous opposition to Card.Cupich re “conscience” or for any other public stance he takes. Today’s Church cannot afford him “benched”!

    If only more bishops would take a public stand for The Truth and the good of souls in their care.

    Two Thumbs Up Bishop Paprocki

  3. Two Thumbs up Bishop Paprocki. My Father was a Union man and Catholic and I would hope he would have agreed.

  4. Mary D says:

    Yes! He is one of the good bishops! I join in your prayer.
