Pittsburgh: Rosy Ruin of the Church

Pittsburgh Diocese announced a merger of 61 parishes into 15 until July 1. This way, the total number of diocesan parishes will decrease from 152 to 106.

Bishop David Zubik writes in a letter to parishioners about a "difficult task," but demands a sacrifice: “You are positioning your new parish for more effective ministry by addressing financial needs, sharing resources and allowing your clergy to focus on the spiritual work for which they were ordained.”

It has become a custom among bishops, to present the downfall of their mismanaged dioceses in very rosy colours.

"You are positioning your new parish for more effective ministry by addressing financial needs, sharing resources". maybe bishop Zubik should start teaching Truth - what is required from him- instead of "addressing financial needs"

The ongoing death of the Church is a tragedy - especially because of the loss of so many souls - as Our Lady showed the children at Fatima.

The ongoing death of the Church is a tragedy - especially because of the loss of so many souls - as Our Lady showed the children at Fatima. The true Church will only be reborn when the novus ordo liturgy is revoked and the True Mass, the TLM, is restored everywhere. Additionally, the many errors, which have crept into the Church via modernism and the so-called reforms of Vatican II, will have to be acknowledged and rescinded.

The problem is not the Novus Ordo but the loss of faith. The orthodox have kept their liturgy, and yet reject the Catholic Church.

Why I would have to work if someone gives me free money?
From the moment Catholic Church hierarchy took money from government the church is getting less and less relevant. This was clearly seen when our"leaders" wet their pants due to virus and made Christ non essential. Very, very sad.
