Prayers and sympathy are needed for the poor orthodox Roman Catholics of the Diocese of Oakland, CA.
First, they have lost their orthodox bishop and have no bishop at the moment. I assume that explains the wandering of the flock as expressed below.
Their diocesan paper, The Catholic Voice , featured the “CruZader” on its cover and gave the comic strip a full page of favorable coverage. The “hero” in the strip is Antonio De La Cruz. According to the article, “De La Cruz, known by his code name, The CruZader, also enjoys special status at The Vatican as the Church’s holy hit man.” The paper notes proudly that the Catholic author went to local Catholic schools. “Born and raised Catholic, Morales said it was almost instinctive for him to tap into his front-pew perspective in the Church for inspiration as he began to craft his comic creation.”
Two pages later, an article praises the gift of a hard-back Harry Potter novel to each eighth grader at St. Anthony Catholic School in Oakland. Harry Potter is the popular series that ends with a main, sympathetic character arranging for himself to be euthanized.
Three pages after that is a half-page article about how Catholic schools will be “celebrating” the inauguration of our first president to be pro-infanticide, anti-marriage and pro-killing-the-ill.
