RE: Christian Witness in the Aftermath of Hate
I am personally insulted by the words and proposed actions of this professor. As a retired professor, I well know that what we 'teach' goes well beyond academics. Many students emulate us and see us as role models in a world almost devoid of the same. The example this man is setting speaks of his short-sighted character. He may be well-versed in his science but he lacks common sense. The University should be called to task for not removing him tenured or not. Be assured my children nor anyone's within whom I come in contact will ever set foot on the campus. Money invested in education is much better spent by attendance at a University that in a more holistic manner 'educates' its charges. Yes, we indeed need to pray for this professor and the young man (whom I understand is Catholic at least in name). If he is, someone dropped the ball in his home by not instilling virtues and character becoming a Christian and a Catholic one at that. Whether he realizes it or not, he has been de facto excommunicated which has eternal consequences if not repented of in this life. Whether he believes it or not, it is a sacrilege of the highest order to remove the Eucharist without consuming Him. He is an accessory to the professor's sacrilege and in spiritual peril. The continual attacks on the Catholic Church, Catholicism in general, priests and above all, the Most Blessed Sacrament is personally insulting to me and many others as well. Reflecting on the condition of many of the graduates of our educational system, I can understand why higher education in particular is producing knowledge-filled individuals but individuals who have little or no understanding of the need to effectively conduct themselves in a spirit of understanding, respect for others, good moral order, and cohesiveness. With the job market declining in the United States, competition is keen. The likes of the professor and his student-comrade of the same ilk speak to the generalized decline of the truly educated. May God in His Divine Mercy forgive these two men and may all of us who acknowledge Jesus Christ as truly and substantially present in the Eucharist, pray for reparation to the Lord for the abuses He undergoes at the hands of those who should know better. Let us offer Him consolation through increased visits to the Blessed Sacrament, Rosaries of Reparation, extra Divine Mercy Chaplets and daily Mass if possible. Doc
