Below is the most recent bulletin article of Fr. Edwin Palka, found in the Epiphany of Our Lord Catholic Church in Tampa, Florida’s bulletin of August 19, 2018 and shared by Father in a Facebook post on his page the day before. Fr. Palka is the pastor at the main Traditional Latin Mass parish in the Diocese of St. Petersburg and also a member of the Traditian Order. His last three weeks of columns have caught national attention due to his bravery in frankly discussing the scandals in the Church.
From the Pastor: One Proposed Solution
Bulletin article, August 19, 2018
Finally. I am done. At least for now! I am tired of writing about active homosexual and homosexual activist (AH/HA – aha! Now you get it!) priests and bishops. I thought it was important for people to have their eyes opened to this sick reality, but exposing this “hidden in plain sight” evil is not the goal. Eradicating it is. The current state of the Church can be depressing, even capable of bringing about spiritual despair. But it need not be. There is always hope. A well founded hope, in fact.
The Light of Christ will conquer the darkness. The Immaculate Heart will triumph. We know that. But what can we do? First and foremost, we must pray and fast. “Oh, no, Father, not that old line!” Yes. We are battling demonic Antichrists when facing men delighting in homosexual desires and actions and all that emanates from them. Some kinds of demons can only be cast out by prayer and fasting according to Our Lord’s explanation in Mt. 17:21 in every Bible except our bishops’ own New American Bible. Interestingly, in the next verse He once again tells his apostles that He will be betrayed (by Bishop Judas Iscariot). If you have any doubts as to the demonic activity of the AH/HAs, for the love of God read Richard Sipe’s (+RIP) works (awrsipe.com) and the Pennsylvania grand jury report, read them. They do not detail “icky” stuff; they detail demonic activity.
