There are so many Judases in the Church today who are either unwittingly or willingly working to bring about the Passion of the Roman Catholic Church and to ultimately crucify Her. Take heart though--God has placed each one of us in these tumultuous and brutal last days to be salt and light. Lukewarm Catholics will be trampled and overcome by the prince of this world. Each of us must take a stand and pray to obtain the faith, hope and charity that the martyrs possessed. We must strip ourselves of every attachment to this world so that we can stand strong against those who would invoke our indiscriminate obedience to those who seek the destruction of the Bride of Christ.
As a background Fr. Guarnizo was approached by a very manly woman in the sacristy prior to her mother's funeral who proudly introduced her lesbian lover to him. Based upon this open and proud admission, he warned her not to present herself for communion. Of course she did so anyway. The lesbian told the Washington Post that Guarnizo “put his hand over the body of Christ and looked at me and said, ‘I can’t give you communion because you live with a woman and in the eyes of the church that is a sin.’” She then went to his bishop and the media. Now read and weep what his apostate bishop has done to him:
"Sadly, after Mass this evening, I received word that Fr. Guarnizo's assignment at St. John Neuman Parish has been withdrawn and he has been placed on administrative leave with his priestly faculties removed. The notification was signed by Monsignor Knestout, Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia for the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C.. The reason stated for the suspension is that Monsignor Knestout has received several complaints against Fr. Guarnizo claiming intimidating behaviour on his part against parish staff and others, and 'that is incompatible with proper priestly ministry.'
The letter dated March 9, 2012 written by Bishop Barry C. Knestout, chief of staff to Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who heads the Archdiocese states as follows:
"Dear Brother Priest,
I write to inform you that effective today, Father Marcel Guarnizo’s assignment at St. John Neumann Parish is withdrawn and he has been placed on administrative leave with his priestly faculties removed until such time as an inquiry into his actions at the parish is completed,” Bishop Knestout said in his March 9 letter.
“This action was taken after I received credible allegations that Father Guarnizo has engaged in intimidating behavior toward parish staff and others that is incompatible with proper priestly ministry,”
“Given the grave nature of these allegations, and in light of the confusion in the parish and the concerns expressed by parishioners, Father Guarnizo is prohibited from exercising any priestly ministry in the Archdiocese of Washington until all matters can be appropriately resolved, with the hope that he might return to priestly ministry.”
Sincerely in Christ
Most Reverend Barry C. Knestout
Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia"
We are all witnessing the growing persecution of the Church in what were once Christian nations. These nations are slowly taking on a fascist character that seeks to stamp out religion and religious expression. In Canada a so-called human rights commission is in hot pursuit of truth teller Mark Steyn for Islamophobia and Catholic Insight Magazine for homophobia. In Spain a Protestant is being investigated by the government for attempting to "cure" homosexuality while a Catholic cleric is likewise being investigated for comments that are seen as offending homosexuals.
The pace at which religious hatred is growing is alarming. But this was all prophesied by good and holy men and women throughout the centuries. They all hauntingly repeat that a great chastisement will occur due to the loss of the Faith. The Catholic Church in particular will have much to suffer. Islam is predicted to be used as one instrument of chastisement. But the enemies of Christ Read More...
"If the Lord wishes that...persecutions should be suffered, the Church feels no alarm; on the contrary persecutions purify her and confer upon her a fresh force and a new beauty." Pope Pius IX (1874)
