Reactions to Gregory's Appointment to DC

First from Restore DC Catholicism, from someone directly affected.

Same-Old, Same-Old In The Archdiocese Of Washington

According to the Catholic News Agency, it is rumored that Atlanta's Archbishop Wilton Gregory will succeed Cardinal Wuerl as Archbishop of Washington. A formal announcement is anticipated next week.

Let's be real. We all knew that whoever the new prelate was to be, that he'd be cut from the same cloth as both Wuerl and McCarrick. Neither of those dissidents would have it any other way - and they both have the pope's ear, an ear also spawned from the same dissidence. Some of us dreamed that it might be Cardinal Burke, but under this pontificate, that remained in the realm of pipe dreams.

What little I've written of Gregory points to someone who has evinced sympathy with the gay-nazi agenda. Rorate Caeli has composed quite a comprehensive list of his dissident actions. This bodes ill for the DC archdiocese. But this is not news; we've been living amidst the damage caused by progressive prelates for many years now, and now we can anticipate some more. But the new archbishop can also expect that we'll be watching him and calling him out if need be. Of course we will keep him in prayer. We might also invoke the intercession of St Thomas Becket, who became Archbishop of Canterbury with the help of some royal subterfuge, but who became such a heroic bishop that he met martyrdom.
And, second, from Rorate Caeli, the post referenced in the above post.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
