Something about this just doesn't set right with me though. I think that the Moderators should check into it so I have sent a report to them.
I received this mass email too. I felt too that there was something in this that was not quite right. I am wondering if this actually came from Fr. Angelus. Maybe it came from one of his supporters using this name? Here is my response to this email.
Your mass email on Fr Angelus' persecution has been going
around. I don't understand why you resorted to this
type of email. It is a defensive position and yet it
also comes across as very aggressive as well.
Note you said: " At the present time, Father Angelus
is undergoing a persecution from within his own
missionary assignment. This assault is being
driven by fear, jealously, lust for power and
perhaps, senility. "
This can become a vicious speculation to those who read this. Who is this person-- Mother Angelica? We can start pointing
Why mention "haft truths" or incomplete facts.
If you wanted to come up with a defence, first mention
what the issue is all about and not just talk about
the supposed reason of "fear, jealousy, lust for power
and senility". When you leave things
vague, people will fill in the blank and there may be
a lot of injustice and wrongful accusations.
Many saints were persecuted but they remained silent. But this email was like going on a duel fight in public.
Did Fr. Angelus actually approve of this email
campaign you are doing?
This is not to say that I don't love Fr. Angelus . I
love him and I have always enjoyed his spirited
homilies and I am so sad that he is no longer with
EWTN. Yes, I will pray for Fr. Angelus.
