Archbishop Vigano: Do we follow Christ or the Crowd?

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, in a Sermon on Palm Sunday in 2013, warned Catholics about crying our Hosanna one minute, but betraying Christ the next. We become lost in our passions, our foolishness, our blindness, and give ourselves over to what seems acceptable just for the present...following the  Crowd. But real Love is truly meaningful and permanent. Our love of Christ must be constant and persistent, spoke the Archbishop. 

I must examine myself, where I have failed and where I can improve. Each and every day should be a constant struggle to follow Christ and not join the "Crowd".  Slowly this "Crowd" is getting larger and larger: not only from those who have openly abandoned Christianity, but also from those who claim to love Him.




Please continue to pray for Archbishop Vigano, pray for the Church, and pray for the Pope! "And Peter, going out, wept bitterly" (Luke 22:62).

It is so simple, and yet the very top of our Church hierarchy excuses their abandonment of Christ with the crowd's rejection of Him.

Clearly, despite our propensity for sin, we are attracted to Jesus Christ, because He is Truth. Priests were to help us choose the way of Truth. They were to remind us that choosing anything other than the Way, the Truth and the Life inevitably leads to misery and death.

As the world offers distractions and destruction, priests were to offer us the clarity and power of the Word of God.

But, as Thomas Rosica announces with excitement, chief priest Bergoglio disregards the Word of God at will. Why? - Because he prefers to follow the crowd. He orders surveys of public opinion, to guide him in the overthrow of The Word and the Church.

It is so clear, there is absolutely no doubt about it. Yet many who have the audacity to call themselves Christians, follow Bergoglio and attack his opponents like vicious dogs. Christians are Christ followers.

These people reject Him and follow the crowd who crucifies Him.
