The powers that be in the Church continue their policy of attempting to silence critics:
HOUSTON, Texas, January 8, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A Catholic priest told to stop speaking out about certain aspects of the Church’s sexual-abuse scandal issued an appeal to Pope Francis for permission to keep talking about the crisis.
Father Mark Goring, a member of the Companions of the Cross priestly community and director of the Catholic Charismatic Center in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, was told by an unnamed superior to “cease and desist” last Friday. The instruction came after he had posted a YouTube video critical of embattled Cardinal Donald Wuerl, which stemmed from word that Wuerl would likely preside as normal over the archdiocese’s Youth Rally and Mass for Life during the upcoming March for Life.
Goring told viewers in the January 5 video he was asked a day earlier by one of his “legitimate authorities” to “cease and desist.”
His response was “immediate and unhesitant,” he said.
“I am a man of obedience,” Goring stated. “You’ve asked me to cease and desist. So I will cease and desist.”
Goring exhorted viewers to remember that when he was ordained he promised before God to be obedient to his superiors. He said it was never his intention to make their lives difficult.
In his appeal to Pope Francis video posted January 8, Goring said again he was a man of obedience.
