I "pray that the parade would continue to be a source of unity for all of us.” - Cardinal Dolan
His blog post, an editorial on the NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade (read here) was indeed removed. A comment left by Monsignor appears to confirm that:
Bless you all for your prayers and encouragement. I hope you will understand if I cannot continue to post your comments on the parade article here. I will read them but cannot post them, I will send you an e-mail gratitude. I ask your charity and understanding for the Archdiocese of Washington which has always generously sponsored this blog and been supportive of our conversations. I also hope you will understand if I cannot explain why it was removed. I am a loyal son of the Church and I love my Archdiocese. - ADW
Monsignor Pope is the best Catholic priest-blogger online. Keep him in your prayers.
I'm disappointed on many levels. Catholic autocrats have to wake up and recognize it's an exercise in futility to attempt to erase anything online once it is published. Be it an errant remark by a Cardinal Archbishop or an affirmation of Roman Catholic teaching by a faithful priest - it's out there.
Keep the faith!
Monsignor graciously commented on the missing post here.
