Little Jacinta of Fatima once told her godmother:
“Pray much for priests! Pray much for religious! Priests
should only occupy themselves with the affairs of the Church. Priests should be pure, very pure.”
One might wonder why Jacinta would place such emphasis on praying for priests.
But one get a deeper appreciation for Jacinta’s request after reading the recent statement by Father Mike Bayard, SJ, in favor of the recent drag queen show that took place before a packed auditorium at Seattle University, which is run by the Jesuits.
Fr. Bayard is the director of campus ministry at the University.
“My understanding of a drag show is that it's men dressing up as women, now what is wrong with that? I believe wholeheartedly that Seattle University is thoroughly Catholic. To be Catholic at Seattle University means to be inclusive.”
I wonder how Jacinta would answer Fr. Bayard’s statement.
Here are a few more quotes from Jacinta:
“The sins of the world are very great.”
“Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord, and they are not of God.”
“If men knew what eternity is, they would do everything to change their lives.”
“The sins that lead more souls to Hell are the sins of the flesh.”
“Fashions that will greatly offend Our Lord will appear. People who serve God should not follow fashions. The Church has no fashions. Our Lord is always the same.”
“Men are lost because they do not think of the death of Our Lord and do not do penance.”
