A Shepherd Guards His Flock

Salvadore Cordileone
I have been chronicling Archbishop Cordileone's defense of the Faith in these pages here and here. We must remember that Our Lord guaranteed that the gates of hell would not prevail, but that hell would not cease trying to do so for a time until He brings all things into one in His person. Here is a bishop who, following the teachings of the Second Vatican Council on the job description of a bishop, understands this, draws courage from this. I like the following comment on the news article:

"Your Grace,  I applaud your courage.  Our church and schools are built on the teachings of Christ and the Magisterium.
If faculty members do not want to teach theses beliefs, I suggest they leave their “personal” beliefs at the door.  Or find a public or private school to teach in whose values are not strictly Catholic."
