I always send letters because I just can't sit back and do nothing and yes, I already sent a letter regarding this as well. I am always fighting for the Catholic faith. What saddens me so much is there were only two letters in support of the Archbishop with the rest being against him. I wanted to know how other faithful Catholics respond when they come across these types of situations. It worries me that we are going to be outnumbered. And by the way, you could follow the link I posted and submit your own comment in defense of the faith online.
The disciples were vastly outnumbered. What should sadden us is not being 'outnumbered,' but that people allow their minds & souls to be corrupted. But they aren't beyond redemption, any more than any convert was . . . "For such were some of you," St. Paul wrote, "but now you are washed".
Thank God that He gives you the grace of living in a time when we have to stand forth & stand out to defend the truth, rather than in a time when we could simply coast along and think that our souls were in good shape because we weren't too bad. We all must be filled with charity & firmness in this time -- and we must never give in to the devil's temptation to despair or self-pity or depression: it's a grace to be subject to obloquy, as long as we suffer for Christ as Christ.
