While the conclusion could have been a little stronger, one thing is certain: The "smoke of Satan," as observed by Pope Paul VI, is currently choking every bureaucracy and charity in the institutional Church.
This above all else is why we MUST pray for our religious, our priests, our bishops, and for the Holy Father. The Catholic Church is under attack as never before -- both from without as well as within. So, while our bishops and priests owe it to us, in justice, to lead us to Christ and salvation, we owe it to them, also in justice, to pray and fast on their behalf. Should we fail to pray and fast for them, how can we ever expect them to have the strength and wisdom to lead us as they are called to do?
In short, it is a call for authenticity and holiness, one worthy of the name Catholic.
