“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Local Diocese of St. Cloud Condemns Myers' Act and Calls for His Firing

The pastor of the Catholic parish in Morris and a spokeswoman for the Diocese of St. Cloud have urged Catholics to contact the University of Minnesota-Morris to express their anger about a professor who desecrated a host reported to be consecrated.

Catholics should "share their outrage that the school continues to employ someone who so blatantly attacks the Catholic Church's beliefs and what she holds to be most holy," said Rebecca Kurowski, director of communications for the St. Cloud Diocese, which includes Morris.

...We want people to know we find this offensive," Father Baltes [Pastor] said. "At the same time we want to react appropriately and give witness with our lives in how we respect the Eucharist and live out what we celebrate in the Eucharist."

Agreed he should be fired BUT! The Catholic Church should also be looking after it's own and quit endorsing LIBERAL PRO ABORTION candidates and quit protesting at such events as the REPUBLICAN national convention where Sister whats her name was. Father Simon from St.Cloud was a liberal Democrat! How can he or anyone else support the liberal left and then stand up at the Alter and preach the gospel? Those who attend mass and vote for the people such as Clinton and Obama and all the leftwing nuts should be banned from attending services because if you truly have the Lord in your heart and soul you wouldnt be supporting those candidates!
