This video comes from an Church Militant news report and article about a rosary rally held at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Jefferson City, MO on Saturday October 7th. The occasion was the holy Mass at the end of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Missouri Catholic Conference. Bishop Gaydos, Archbishop Carlson, and Papal Nuncio Cardinal Christophe Pierre presided at the Mass. The placards indicate that the rosary was held to stop the process of slipping the LGBT/Transgender agenda into Diocesan Catholic Schools. Keep in mind that Bishop Gaydos’ 17 page document includes in the title the words “A Pastoral Process of Accompaniment and Dialogue” The Chancery has been open about not wanting parents to know about the process. In this video the priests process out with the Bishops behind them but when the Bishops see people praying the rosary they don’t dialogue, rather they retreat into the Cathedral. The man with his back to the camera is Catholic Missourian Editor Jay Nies, he’s apparently waiting to snap a picture of the Bishops. When they don’t come out Jay turns and angrily tells those praying the rosary “He doesn’t hear you.” Now if he means that God doesn’t hear the prayers he’s confused because his God is omnipotent and hears everyone. If he means that Bishop Gaydos doesn’t hear them then he is telling the truth because Bishop Gaydos won’t listen, he refuses to dialogue with anyone who disagrees with him and refuses to listen to parents. Jay Nies is in charge of making sure that none of this is ever reported in The Catholic Missourian. It’s a little creepy how uncomfortable this rosary rally made him. If anyone at the Chancery has any other career ending comments to make please report to the front desk.
This fall Bishop Gaydos, Jay Nies, and the Chancery staff who wrote the 17 page document are asking for $2,000,000 in donations from parents and parishioners of every parish in a campaign they call the “Catholic Stewardship Appeal.” They’ve got quite an attitude for a group who lives off the charity of others. If you think this is the proper way to treat your donors and you also support their agenda then by all means give them some money. Maybe, though, you can think of some less privileged people who truly need your help. Those people might hear you when you speak.
