The Church Searches for the Lost Sheep

  • A Church leader should have a “shepherd’s heart” rather than functioning as a “good businessman,” Pope Francis said in a homily at daily Mass on December 9.

    Commenting in the Gospel about the shepherd who leaves 99 sheep to find one stray, the Pope remarked that this might not be good business practice. But a pastor follows a different logic, he said. “He goes out looking until he finds the one lost and celebrates; he's joyful.”

    When the Church devotes energies to the search for those lost sheep, the Pope said, she “becomes a mother, becomes fruitful.” He contrasted that approach with the sterile approach of a church with “a perfect organizational chart with everything in place, everything tidy, but it lacks joy, lacks celebrations, lacks peace.” In that case, he said, the church has become focused on itself and “is more like an old maid than a mother.”

    I think it's safe to say that the novus ordo is doing neither.  

    The novus ordo does not feed the sheep and, with the presider's prancing around in their rainbow sashes, they are actually driving people away.  Changing Our Lord's Church and saying that other faiths are salvific and even no faith can be salvific means that being a shepherd isn't high on their list of priorities unless it's some form of "reverse shepherd".

    The novus ordo is paying so much in legal fees for looking the other way as those presiders in rainbow sashes pranced around looking for young boy's to prey upon so we can cross off "good businessman" as one of their skills unless bankrupting dioceses counts for having a good head for business.

    I have never seen any "presiders" parading around with rainbow sashes.

  • Does he want to take the sheep to Heaven?

    Also with the doggy woggys and pussy wussies?



    I wish they were searching for sheep.  It would keep the children out of their clutches.
