Still waiting for what, you ask?
Well, let's start with the canonically-appropriate: forbidding the meeting, with an interdict against those who attend, after a public warning about this meeting of manifest public heretics claiming to be Catholic. See Canon 1373 (though 1374 really describes the LCWR in practical reality). And how about Canons 1365 and 1369? And this is just on first blush. I'm sure that the great Unknown Canon Lawyer X could draft several thorough decrees.
Since that doesn't seem realistic, what else? The Archbishop could forbid the Assembly from taking place. As the local Ordinary, he has the authority to do so. Perhaps this would merely be a theoretical remedy as well, as the earth worshipers seem to obey no one but
Moving on, I'm still waiting to read a notice in the Archdiocesan paper of record, warning the faithful of the theological and moral dangers of taking part in it, or attending its sessions.
And, finally, we can only pray that priests and employees of the Archdiocese will be forbidden to participate in, attend, or even (God forbid) speak at this assembly of abomination.
Why is the assembly an abomination? The wacky New Age heresies of the keynote speaker have already made the Catholic press. If you didn't catch that scandal, read about her on her website. WARNING: creepy and weird, yet comical. This is the womyn that the LCWR prefers over the Holy See.
But let's take a quick look at another speaker-- you could do so at random, really, and get the same type-- Jamie Manson of the "National" "Catholic" "Reporter". She is an apologist for sexual deviancy in the form of the usual call of leftists to ignore the tenets of Natural Law. She is also aces on dissent-mongering. Here are two recent articles of hers in the NCR:
LCWR: A Radical Obedience to the Voice of God in Our Time
Is the Roman Catholic Church Downsizing into a Sect?
Enjoy those. I'll wait.
You're back? OK.
So this is the circus that's coming to town, right here in St. Louis. Where is the effort on any official level to counteract it? Where is the outcry? In this time of turmoil, when there is so much open and secret disobedience to the Holy Father, may we not ask what we can do to uphold the faith, to defend the Church?
The faithful will rally to the Church and her pastors every time she asserts her true authority. The momentum, small as it is, of the bishops in the campaign against coerced contraception needs to continue. Doctrine within the Church is directly related to the strength or weakness of the Church's position in secular matters. Catholics look for leadership on matters of faith, too.
The LCWR Assembly begins August 7, 2012.
P.S. That creepy, alien-inspired graphic, above, is the very one the earthsisters use to promote the
