“With people who do not have good will, with people who seek only scandal, who seek only division, who seek only destruction, even within families,” the answer is “silence. And prayer.”
As scintillating as that afterthought -- "and prayer"-- truly is, it was His Holiness himself who called for Christians to speak out against this evil. Here's what he said at the Angelus on August 12, 2018:
“Everyone is guilty for the good he could have done and did not do ... If we do not oppose evil, we tacitly feed it. We need to intervene where evil is spreading; for evil spreads where daring Christians who oppose evil with good are lacking.”
Couldn't agree more. Pretty hard to oppose evil by being silent. Right, Holiness?
Vigano is right. The whole world knows he's right--except for a few stubborn ideologues and maybe folks who themselves like to chase kids around dark church basements. So let's keep the momentum going.
During World War II, radio personality Col. V. Britton broadcasted a special message on behalf of Prime Minister Winston Churchill to the occupied countries of Europe. We'd like to paraphrase that message from July 18, 1941:
The V sign is the symbol of the unconquerable will of the occupied people of the Catholic Church and a portent of the fate awaiting Modernist tyranny. So long as Catholics continue to refuse all collaboration with the invader, it is sure that his cause will perish and that the Church will be liberated.
As Father Hunwicke points out, "this simple gesture could be used at papal audiences, bishops synods, deanery meetings; whenever a speaker (or homilist) says something implicitly critical of Archbishop Vigano."
What a great idea! (Hope you don't mind, Father, if some Yanks from The Remnant help you get the ball rolling on this side of the Atlantic.)
From now on, V is for Vigano!
