Flashback: Gregory & Barron strongly Support Francis, Amoris Laetitia & Opus Dei's COVID Hysteria Narrative
The Spanish website called Sin Miedo de al "Opus Dei" which translates in
English to Without Fear of "Opus Dei" stated in Spain that the leftist
media and apparently the Opus Dei so-called "conservative" media have
united to push the coronavirus hysteria:
"[T]here is not a single Spanish media in which there is a dissident voice... No one dares move a finger or open their mouths to say that there is something strange in so much quarantine and interruption of activity [by lockdowns]."
(Sinmiedoalopusdei, "Architecture of Oppression," April 11, 2020)
Why is the supposedly "conservative" Opus Dei media in Spain according to this Spanish website pushing a narrative that is destroying the country's political freedom, economy and banning the Mass?
Opus Dei is not just promoting the coronavirus hysteria, but is supportive of Francis and Amoris Laetitia.
Washington DC Archbishop Wilton Gregory and Bishop Robert Barron are also strongly supportive of Francis and Amoris Laetitia as well as support the Opus Dei coronavirus hysteria narrative.
Moreover, the Catholic Standard says Barron admires liberal gay activists Cardinal Joseph Bernardin and Gregory:
"'Cardinal Bernardin's qualities... have shaped the ministry of Archbishop Gregory'... Barron said that his friend Archbishop Gregory is a excellent choice to lead Archdiocese of Washington. 'I can't think of anyone better'... in the wake of the abuse crisis, he said."
(Catholic Standard, "Friends remember how Archbishop Gregory's Chicago years shaped his ministry," May 13, 2019) [https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/us-archbishop-utilizes-pro-gay-priest-as-spiritual-guide-for-clerical-sex-a and https://bryanhehirexposed.wordpress.com/2010/11/20/fr-bryan-hehir-bishop-kicanas-and-cardinal-bernardin/]
It also appears that Gregory, Barron and Bernardin have and had a common admiration for Opus Dei:
- "Bishop Wilton Gregory (President, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops): "I consider my many Opus Dei friends a wonderful gift to my episcopal service in the Church. I respect and admire the many activities in which Opus Dei serves the needs of the Church and advances the work of evangelization and the sanctification of God's People." April 3, 2004."
- "Cardinal Joseph Bernardin (Chicago): “We praise and thank God for all the wonderful things he has accomplished through [Saint] Josemaría and those who have followed in his footsteps.” From a homily at a Mass in celebration of Saint Josemaría Escrivá at the Holy Name Cathedral, July 1, 1992."
- "This project is at a very inchoate stage, and Barron is working to formulate a framework (he mentions Opus Dei as an appealing example of what he has in mind)." [https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2018/01/12/fundamentally-a-missionary-new-book-captures-bishop-barrons-evangelistic-vision/]
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of the Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.
