Signs, Everywhere Signs

Shocking Church Sign in Buffalo Diocese

By John Vennari
Yesterday a friend sent me a photo of the sign at St. Columba-Brigid R. C. Church in Buffalo.
The sign was so scandalous I had a hard time believing it was not photo-shopped.
This morning I drove to the church to see for myself. With great sadness I report it is true.

This pro-homosexual sign effectively mocks the Blessed Trinity, mocks the Hypostatic Union, mocks the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph – some of the most sacred components of our Catholic Faith.

The Seven Gifts of the Holy Ghost include the Gift of
Fear of the Lord, which incites our will to a filial respect toward God; and the Gift of Piety, which incites in us a filial affection for God and the things that pertain to God. Those responsible for this sign display actions bereft of the Holy Ghost.

This is the depth to which many in our Holy Church have fallen as a result of the unprecedented crisis of Faith over the past 50 years.
St. Columba-Brigid R. C. Church is in the diocese of Buffalo NY. The the local ordinary is Bishop Richard Joseph Malone. 

The Bishop wasted no time.... 

“Thank you for your message regarding the sign at SS Columba – Brigid Church here in Buffalo. As soon as I learned of this sign, I took immediate action to have it removed. The pastor of SS Columba – Brigid Church told me that the “2 Dads” were meant to refer to a child who has both a father and stepfather. There are several children in his parish who have both a father and stepfather. However, given the potential for the meaning of this message to be misunderstood and even perceived in a heretical way, it was immediately removed.”

Personally, I think it's a commentary on the state of the Church in Ireland.
