Parishioners—Despised Little Ones

It must needs be that the mother church of this diocese suffer the predations that other churches have suffered, and that her parishioners, truly despised little ones, including parish members of the interior committee, including the Rector, suffer, but “whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew  18:6, Luke 17:2, Mark 9:42).

Our peculiar suffering will be that we Albany victims will be forced to face each other while the Universal Church, led by the Pope, begins to turn back to the direction we wish always to face, ad orientem.
