April Fools Joke?

Are you sure this is not an April Fools Joke, I asked?

OK, I promise that this came from a reliable source that assured me that it was the absolute truth...

Rumor has it that the Presbyteral Council of the diocese has appointed Msgr. Louis Brum to head up the diocesan Peace and Justice program. Has anyone else heard this?

I understand this position involves his designing and making recommendations on setting up Peace and Justice programs at all of the parishes throughout the diocese. Is this not the most hilarious thing you have ever heard?

The very person that totally destroyed every smidgen of evidence of the most recognized Peace and Justice program in the diocese (Holy Spirit), has now been given the duty of going to all of the other parishes in the diocese to make recommendations and help them establish their very own Peace and Justice program! What a hoot! If this was not so preposterous, I would be rolling on the floor laughing!

I understand the Presbyteral Council consists of fellow priests that make recommendations to the bishop on who should be appointed to the various positions in the diocese. Suggestion is that Louie’s fellow priests recommended him for this program to teach him a lesson for totally destroying the P&J program at Holy Spirit, his home parish. Guess what fellow parishioners… this April Fools Joke is on US!

This can't be true; the bish is playing with us to see how we react.

April Fools Joke.
How sad! Maybe he can use his present Peace and Justice program at Holy Spirit as a shining example of how every Catholic Church should be performing in the Peace and Justice arena. But a word of caution to all the other pastors in the diocese, please don’t take ANYTHING that Monsignor Louie says at face value. The man would rather lie than tell the truth!

"Would rather lie than tell the truth." What a wonderful trait for a Catholic Priest. A Monsignor no less!
I am sure that Monsignor Brum will have much to teach the other priests in the diocese about their responsibility of setting the example of Christ's teachings, he has done such a great job of this at Holy Spirit!

Isn't lying a sin, especially if other people are harmed by it? Maybe we should ask our pastor for guidance on this.

This is an insult to good Catholics everywhere. This injustice is not a joking matter and all of those fellow priests that are afraid to speak up to put an end to this injustice because of a revengeful bishop are as much to blame! God help their souls, too.
