Protect Bishop Jenky as he is under attack for defending Catholicism

Bishop Jenky’s homily to his Catholic men calling for “Heroic Catholicism” went viral yesterday and today.  Here is an excerpt from his homily:
 
“The Church survived barbarian invasions. The Church survived wave after wave of Jihads. The Church survived the age of revolution. The Church survived Nazism and Communism.
And in the power of the resurrection, the Church will survive the hatred of Hollywood, the malice of the media, and the mendacious wickedness of the abortion industry.
 
The Church will survive the entrenched corruption and sheer incompetence of our Illinois state government, and even the calculated disdain of the President of the United States, his appointed bureaucrats in HHS, and of the current majority of the federal Senate.
 
May God have mercy on the souls of those politicians who pretend to be Catholic in church, but in their public lives, rather like Judas Iscariot, betray Jesus Christ by how they vote and how they willingly cooperate with intrinsic evil.
 
As Christians we must love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us, but as Christians we must also stand up for what we believe and always be ready to fight for the Faith. The days in which we live now require heroic Catholicism, not casual Catholicism. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead be Catholics by conviction.”

Since his homily went viral the Bishop and Diocese of Peoria have come under ugly attacks.
 
The diocese is receiving profanity laced phone calls and Bishop Jenky is being attacked on Facebook and other Internet sites by enemies of the Church.
 
Bishop Jenky and his Diocese need your support and protection now!  So, call, email, snail mail, post on their Facebook page to show your support.  I am told that the laity’s support means more to our pastors than we know.  Use the link below to contact Bishop Jenky:
 
I am told Bishop Jenky has the “broad shoulders” needed to shepherd and that he was ready for the attacks.  That being true, those of us endowed with the broad shoulders to defend the Catholic faith will still form a true circle of protection around him because it is our duty.  All of our sacred pastors must be protected.  This practice will surely be needed because each of our bishops will soon be next.
 
 O Holy Spirit, strengthen us to defend all that is holy.

  1. I hope he continues what he is doing. It’s hard but this is what separates the men from the boys.

  2. Stick to your guns! We’re with you. Non illegitemi carborundum.

    Obamacare will allow people with pre existing conditions to get insurance for the first time. It will remove insurance caps on catastrophic illnesses. It will prevent higher rates for women just based on their gender. It will allow the working poor to afford insurance. The people Bishop Jenkins supports want to abolish Medicare and Social Security. Who would Christ support?

    The First Amendment of the Constitution says – Congress shall make no laws respecting an establishment of religion – or prohibiting the free expression thereof. The birth control measure does not “respect an establishment of religion” and it does not “prohibit the free expression thereof” – it is Constitutional. What is un-Constitutional is Obama’s exemption for the Church – that is making a law respecting an establishment of religion. What is more un-Constitutional than having a religious organization determining a citizen’s healthcare?

    The Catholic Charities get 60 plus percent of their funding from the Faith Based Initiative which was continued under Obama. Let’s see tax-free political posturing while raking in funds from the taxpayer. Thou Hypocrite!

  5. Anyone who doesn’t understand the good bishop’s references just doesn’t know HISTORY! God Bless him and all who are fighting this!

    We need more Bishops like Bishop Jenky!

    Thanks, Bishop Jenky, for speaking out in defense of life and religious freedom. We had two children who graduated from Notre Dame and who are on your side. Tom and Patricia Forr

  8. It is so wonderful that the great divide between the ignorant and the responsible has been shown on this comment board.

  9. Academics, especially those in the sociology world and other non emperical science fields that rely on subjective impulses, have always harbored to impune anyone who dares to defend the Church. Henri De Lubac suffered such calumnious activity from faculty as well as well as many other professors who did not go along with the status quo of a few frondeurs. These base fellows are usually led by someone vociferant individual who foments acrimony against a colleague for personal vengence. They usually use an opportunity to foment their revenge against an unsuspecting person or group. Academics think that a mere signature on a petition of sedition is justification for their penury of justice. In reality that signature makes their sedition even more egregious. I thank Bishop Jenky for having the courage to call out administration officials for their ill conceived ideas against the Church. Those who collaborate with the administration hope to curry favor in some distorted manner. And to think that parents are sending their children to be taught by these scoundrels. Keep fighting Bishop we support you.

  10. Christ said you will be persecuted. Keep speaking the Truth. We are listening. You are in my prayers.

  11. You will have enemies if you speak the Truth, The darkness is all around and darkness cannot tolerate the Light. You are in my prayers and we need strong shepherds in these dark times. We are listening. May God Bless you and sustain you. Keep your eyes on Christ, Bishop Jenky.

  12. Thankyou Bishop Jenky for standing up for the truth in our society which is persecuting Christians.We as Christians must begin to stand up for what we believe in and these truths include that life begins at conception,living together before marriage is sinful(The Bible states that those who practice fornication will not enter heaven),that euthanasia is wrong and is being abused now in Holland where it has been accepted for years, and that pornography is evil.

  13. My family and I are with you, Bishop. Hang tough for what is RIGHT.
