When “Neighbourhood Watch” Should Be More “Neighbourhood ACT”.

So today, Cardinal Burke “issued a call this morning for the Catholic faithful to “work for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.””

I may be harsh, but I can’t help but compare +Burke to the neighbour who lives next door to a household in disrepair due to an abusive father. Dad’s gonna come home drunk again, and all the neighbour can do is tell the children that they make sure their rooms are spick and span.

Sure, the Catholic faithful have to keep praying. But the answer isn’t speaking to the kids. The answer is smacking around (figuratively) a derelict dad who refuses to come up with four yes/no answers.
