Though Evil Abounds

Meeting Pope Francis

With Archbishop Viganò’s recent allegations of the hierarchy of the Church, we the lay people demand answers. Archbishop Viganò’s letter has disclosed  incriminating information about sexual misconduct, including homosexuality and pedophilia. This sin will not only lead the offenders to Hell, but the fact that their trasgressions have been consistently covered up is what creates this culture of evil within the Catholic Church.

These unspeakable offenses that have been brought to light for the world to see. God will no longer tolerate these heinous acts to take place. I am discouraged with the words of Pope Francis, when he stated, “I will not say a single word on that.” Pope Francis also said, “Read the statement carefully and make your own judgement.”  That is not an acceptable answer from the leader of the Church.

The Church’s teachings are infallible, but it is man that continues to corrupt the true meaning of what Jesus Christ gave us when he instituted the House of God.

Matthew 16:18  And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

The enemy is alive and well, and living in the crevices of the Church. The pain of these sins goes back many generations because of the cover-up. The children whose lives have been robbed of their innocence and purity, they are a true sacrifice of these evil devils like McCarrick, who never deserved the title of Cardinal, let alone priest. I pray for all victims to get their justice, and that they see God’s hand on the judgement of these criminals. I pray that the statute of limitations be lifted so that every person who sinned against the innocent pays for their egregious fall from grace, even if the offenders are elderly. I also pray for all good and holy priests to be protected, so that they can continue to lead our flock in the example of Jesus, the greatest of  shepherds.

I have written to the bishop of the Orange Diocese with my great disappointment and confusion. I am a catechist at St. Norbert in the city of Orange, and have signed a petition for the Pope to come forth with an explanation of this big mess that the hierarchy has for years covered up. I thank God that every hidden sin will be uncovered once and for all. I remain a steadfast Catholic, believing God’s judgement will prevail.

Matthew 10:26 “So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered that will not be revealed or hidden that will not be known.”

My letter to Pope Francis:

Your Holiness Pope Francis,

This correspondence is in regards to the allegations of Archbishop Viganò. For years I have admired you and what you have stood for. I was one of those persons that waited in line outside the Vatican for hours to see you, to take a picture of you. I was caught up by your charismatic spirit and was very excited to hear what you had to say.

Now I can only say how confused I am in your response to this matter. We need a directive from you, our Holy Father, and where you stand with all these accusations. Your Holiness, in all due respect, are you going to come forth in the defense of the victims? Where is the mercy that you often speak of? Can you not hear the cries of those in emotional pain cause by men under your leadership?

It takes a lifetime for some of these victims to come to terms with the heinous violations inflicted on them. Your Holiness, you are the chosen of God, and our Lord expects you to do what is right in the eyes of the world. When the Church needs you most, we feel abandoned by your indifference, and how you have avoided the elephant standing in St. Peter’s Basilica.

Though I am just a lay person, I have a voice that can transcend to many because I am a Blogger as well. I pray that our Church rid itself of all malice, and that every offender to be exposed. The victims cry out for justice, and we wait for you to speak on their defense. Save our Church from these evildoers and clean up the house of God once and for all. I implore you to order an independent investigation in this matter so that the truth may be revealed.

In highest respect for your service,


Lynda Ciriza
