Sit down over a cup of coffee with Geoffrey Robinson, a soft-spoken, silver-haired Roman Catholic bishop from Australia, and you’d be hard-pressed to see him as a fiery prophet or an angry dissident or any of the other far less flattering names he’s been called since writing his powerful new book, “Confronting Power and Sex […]

    sorry…I press the wrong key and could not finish my email to you all as I was saying…
    OBEDIENCE to the Roman Catholic Church is not easy,
    celibacy is correct…read St. Paul’s letter to the Phillipians…etc
    also the Acts of the Apostles…
    sex…??? I do not know what is this former priest’s problem, unless he is homosexual himselp…we Catholics are taught to love the person but not the sin…God created man and woman He did not created a bunch of us and Said take your choice…
    the Sacraments were instituted by Jesus Christ and they cannot be alter or change…Jesus Christ being God (God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit) knows everything so He knew all of these things that are happening there fore don’t buy the excute people say that Jesus instituted those Sacraments back then…oh no
    that’s only an excuse we human make all the time when we want to do
    things our way and or hear what we want to hear and not His Word…
    we all need to pray to the Holy Spirit to guide us, if this former priest (once Ordaine a Priest, always a priest) should do the same to pray to the Holy Spirit for he is really making evil very happy…
    and he will have to answer to God someday if he doesn’t correct himself now, he should go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation and to Adoration of His Real Presence in the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament where Jesus us present in Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity…he will then experience the Graces of God and will help him, I say all this because it had done to me, although my sufferings are there and maybe more but He is helping me carry my Cross…the Son of Man, God’s only Begotten Son carried His Cross and He did say…” if you want to follow Me, leave all behind and follow Me”….I sure hope this poor priest gets to read this…
    Sincerly yours in Christ,
