US Bishops condemn Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as “Blasphemy”, urge prayer and reparation

The LA Dodgers will host LGBTQ+ Pride Night on Friday, June 16—a day on which Catholics celebrate the Sacred Heart of Jesus—and in a twisted mockery, the Dodgers have invited the "queer and trans nuns" group, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

The Catholic response has been immediate and forceful, with several groups, along with bishops, organizing public prayer and sacrifices.

LA’s Archbishop José Gomez will dedicate his Mass on June 16 "for healing due to the harm caused by the Dodgers decision to honor a group that intentionally denigrates and profanes the Christian faith."

"Friday, we celebrate the feast of Jesus' Sacred Heart," Gomez stated.

The Dodgers have “no comment” to the reprimand that came from their Archdiocese.

The USCCB further slammed the event in a strongly-worded statement, calling the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence “blasphemy”, and leading the American faithful in a day of prayer and reparation, with the intention of repairing the spiritual damage inflicted by sin. The full text of their statement is below:

Catholics Invited to Pray an Act of Reparation on Solemnity of the Sacred Heart

“Catholic Christians traditionally recognize June as the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. During this time, we call to mind Christ’s love for us, which is visible in a special way in the image of His pierced heart, and we pray that our own hearts might be conformed to His, calling us to love and respect all His people.

“This year, on June 16—the day of the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus—a professional baseball team has shockingly chosen to honor a group whose lewdness and vulgarity in mocking our Lord, His Mother, and consecrated women cannot be overstated. This is not just offensive and painful to Christians everywhere; it is blasphemy.

“It has been heartening to see so many faithful Catholics and others of good will stand up to say that what this group does is wrong, and it is wrong to honor them. We call on Catholics to pray the Litany of the Sacred Heart on June 16, offering this prayer as an act of reparation for the blasphemies against our Lord we see in our culture today.”
