We Place Our Trust in You, Most Beloved Priests of Jesus Christ

Bud Macfarlane, Sr.

Deo Gratias! The Church’s 40 years in the desert of dissent, deceit, and deadly silence about its constant infallible teaching on contraception in Humanae Vitae will soon be over.

The “sensitive soft sell” and “sickening silence” regarding the spiritual cancer of contraception has emptied the well, and the Catholic Church in America is dying of spiritual thirst for the “splendor of the truth.” So “The Gloves Are Off,” and we must now utilize America’s greatest asset, the largest priest force of any country in the world (America is blessed with more priests than the three largest Catholic countries combined). Every priest must now be motivated to bravely and quickly repair the decades of damage inflicted on the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ by the treachery of so many of His very own priests. Contraception can only be effectively exposed and eradicated by the Catholic priesthood, which was primarily responsible for allowing what Pope Paul VI referred to as “the smoke of Satan” to enter and decimate the Catholic Church. Truly, the satanic deception of contraception is absolutely the single most important issue in the Church and in society today. These chosen ones who answered Christ’s call to be His alter Christus, must now confront, expose, and defeat this ultimate wolf in sheep’s clothing. 

On the 35th anniversary of Humanae Vitae, Bishop Victor Galeone issued his beautiful pastoral, “Marriage: A Communion of Life and Love.” He opened by referring to contraception as a serious disorder, the taproot of escalating failed marriages and divorce, and worsening sexual behavior at every level of society. Bishop Galeone called contraception a spiritual cancer in the Church. He blamed its devastating impact on the family and the Church on 40 years of silence by the vast majority of bishops and priests.

One very important goal of “The Gloves Are Off” is to quickly maximize the awareness among all priests and laity of the Holy Spirit inspired initiatives of Human Life International: “Clerical Contraception” and “The Humanae Vitae Pledge for Priests.”

Excerpts from “Clerical Contraception” by Human Life International October 6, 2006: [each is a separate excerpt]

Thirty years ago the beloved founder of Human Life International, Fr. Paul Marx, boldly and often referred to the “conspiracy of silence” from the pulpits of our Church on contraception, and prophesied that “future generations will wonder why so many Catholic bishops and priests didn’t see contraception as the seminal evil and the chief cause of the Church’s swift decline.”

To this day the vast majority of Catholic clergy refuse to talk about contraception despite their moral obligation to do so. The reasons for this negligence range from outright heresy to lack of moral courage to inexcusable ignorance. Whatever the reason, the effect is the same—something I call “clerical contraception.” The priest, though not married, analogously contracepts the life-giving seed of truth when he refuses to preach the Catholic faith—all of it.

This is probably the main reason why so many Catholics today contracept or sterilize themselves and see absolutely no contradiction in receiving the Eucharist every Sunday and believing themselves in perfect communion with the Church. They have never been admonished that it is a mortal sin to use contraception or get sterilized. 

The persistent sterility of priestly vocations is caused by priests who are silent about the plague of contraception among the laity and forget that their own vocations are the result of their parents’ generosity with life.    

Priestly silence on contraception has eternal consequences. The price of that silence is the loss of souls. Contracepting men and women who are not warned of their sin, and therefore do not repent of it, risk the death of their immortal souls, and that is a scandal of immense proportions. To be warned is to be forewarned, especially about something so crucial.      

Perhaps the only danger of greater consequence is the danger to the priests themselves who don’t do their job: They risk their own spiritual deaths because, in the end, they will be held accountable for preaching the Church’s full message “in season and out of season.” May every priest take to heart God’s warning through the prophet Ezekiel, “If I say to the wicked man, you shall surely die: and you do not warn him or speak out to him to dissuade him from his wicked conduct so that he might live: that wicked man shall die for his sin, but I will hold you responsible for his death” (Ez 3:18).
