Editor’s note: The following is a statement from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò regarding the “Pride Mass” being celebrated at Holy Trinity Catholic parish in Washington, D.C. on June 14, 2023.
Today at Holy Trinity Parish, run by the Jesuits of Georgetown University in the Archdiocese of Washington, a Mass will be celebrated for “Catholic” activists of the LGBT movement.
For years – ever since he was Archbishop of Atlanta – Wilton Daniel Gregory has been abusing his power to promote the homosexual agenda, much to the scandal of the Catholic faithful. His monomaniacal fixation on the vice against nature earned him the sacred purple (i.e., the cardinalate) and appointment to the See of Washington, D.C., a worthy heir to McCarrick and Wuerl, thus confirming that betrayal of Christ’s teaching is regarded in Bergoglio’s Vatican as a prerequisite for an ecclesiastical career.
It is not surprising that Cardinal Gregory is a follower of James Martin, S.J., whose recent sacrilegious remarks on devotion to the Sacred Heart have aroused indignation in the ecclesial body and prompted the organization of a reparatory procession on June 16 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
It brings me great sorrow to learn that the clergy of the Archdiocese of Washington prefer to remain slavishly silent to this umpteenth sacrilege, in which the holy sacrifice is sacrilegiously used as a propaganda tool for a sin that cries out for vengeance before God, while the souls of so many poor sinners are confirmed in vice.
But even greater is the pain of seeing the Most Blessed Sacrament profaned – during the Octave of Corpus Christi and two days before the feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus – by admitting to Communion people whom pastors should instead admonish and direct towards a path of true conversion and fidelity to God’s will.
