Jimmy Has A Hissy Fit

Poor Fr. James Martin nearly had a meltdown this past weekend when he saw Bishop Strickland retweeted our story regarding a pastor’s response to Cardinal Cupich’s cancellation of Ad Orientem worship in the Archdiocese of Chicago.

To recap, Fr. Anthony Bus C.R., pastor of St. Stanislaus Kostka in Chicago, penned a letter to Bishop Lombardo regarding Ad Orientem worship at his parish. Fr. Bus acknowledged in the letter that he would comply with Cardinal Cupich’s decision to restrict Ad Orientem worship. Additionally, Fr. Bus included some excellent questions regarding the policy that we felt were worthy of sharing with our subscribers.

Bishop Strickland retweeted our post regarding Fr. Bus’ letter, including his support for the priest.

Fr. Martin responded to Bishop Strickland’s tweet with the following message:

Does anyone else see the hypocrisy in Fr. Martin’s criticism? One could well ask whether Fr. Martin. Martin is not a part of the Archdiocese of Chicago and is therefore opining on a matter outside of his diocese. Being a priest, Martin is also is questioning a the opinion of a Bishop who is his superior in the hierarchy of the Church.

No doubt Fr. Martin is once again trying to mobile his posse of progressive agitators to spank Bishop Strickland for his opinion.
