“This is the question I get asked the most by Catholics unfamiliar with cancel culture. To be honest, I find it surprising amidst the rash of cancelation in various forms that there is still so much confusion – especially after so many bishops closed churches due to Covid and made it seem as if the source and summit of our faith was not essential. While traditional Catholics are typically familiar with being pushed to the wayside both in society and by the hierarchy of the Church, many of the faithful attending the Novus Ordo Missae are just realizing the gravity of the problem faced by orthodox Catholic priests. So how do we help our fellow faithful Catholics understand what’s happening and what they can do about it? This article offers some critical context and explains what the Coalition for Canceled Priests (CFCP) is doing in response…
ARE YOU A CANCELED PRIEST, BISHOP, OR RELIGIOUS?
Holy and faithful priests, bishops, and religious have been persecuted in many ways throughout the history of The Church. The cancel culture that has affected many of us in the recent past has been present in The Church for quite a while. We have met faithful men and women who have been sidelined or canceled in many ways in The Church. We’re not talking about people who have been removed from ministry for violating civil law or Canon Law. We’re talking about people (priests in particular) who are striving to be holy, faithful, traditional, and orthodox.
If you feel you have been canceled in a way that affects your ability to live out your vocation, we encourage you to apply for support from The Coalition for Canceled Priests.
