Now you just stay there behind that line until my backup arrives.” Julie June 2, 2007 - 1:07 am “You’re not wearing socks with them Birkenstocks, are you? Ok, that’s it, I’m calling for the paddywagon.” KaleJ June 2, 2007 - 1:44 am Nah, I got it Sarge. Their thousand person march seems a bit lite. Yeah, some are wearing loafers, why?

Once the early bird special begins at Denny’s I’m sure all seven of them will be out of here.” Judith M.

Maybe the rest are late, or left early, or got the time and/or place wrong, or else this is the worst job of photo-cropping I’ve ever seen. Love the “Kumbayah” comment! RC June 2, 2007 - 10:18 pm Hm: if they want to persuade him of something, how about quitting Call To Action first? The Vatican did uphold his excommunication of the group’s members, so leaving CTA would manifest some desire to live in communion with the Church.

A quick follow up to what happened here in Lincoln Friday (this email was from the counter-demonstration organizer: For those who haven’t heard, when Call to Action learned we were organizing a show of support for our Bishop, they tried to preserve a monopoly on their sought after media attention by changing their protest to 11:00am. We learned about it just before 9:00am. The signs were not yet printed! I was out collecting completed Petition pages! I couldn’t get to a computer! I was disheartened to say the least. Well, the Holy Spirit took charge of the situation in no short order. A flurry of phone calls ensued. The signs would be ready for pick up at 10am in South Lincoln. The homeschoolers were called into action by Cheryl Winter. I made one call to her and with her directory in hand she made numerous calls. Liz Feuerborn phoned me on my cell and she sent out an urgent email to our homeschool group that reached many others as well. I was hoping that we might have double their numbers at the 11:00am gathering. I was also concerned that our time would be drawn from petition gathering. I should not have worried! Here’s what happened: About 116 red-shirted people showed up on a moment’s notice at the steps of the Chancery! Amazing! Call to Action again tried to lure the media away by changing their staging area (all 9 members of them!) to occur in front of the Cathedral parking lot instead of the Chancery. That meant it was time for a good old fashioned Catholic procession! We were required by Lincoln Police (as they politely told us) to stay off of the public sidewalk. Off we went, filling the lawn in front of the Chancery, then in front of the Cathedral. We sang hymns, recited the Apostle’s Creed, we prayed the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the return to the Church of Call to Action members. It was such a blessed sight. One family drove all the way from Palmyra, another from Wahoo! After numerous interviews, we finally dispersed and returned to the business of finishing the Petition gathering. At 2:00pm we met at Doug’s home. He and his wife, daughter and grandchildren worked very hard on the Petition drive and we are very thankful- they provided the backbone and inspiration for all of their efforts! We went forward with our support gathering at 2:45pm. More praying, including the Chaplet at 3pm- again for the return of those who have left the Church and also for our Bishop. At about 3:20 the petitions were totaled. Call to Action collected signatures since December, 2006 and had approximately 1000. Our faithful lay Catholics collected 1452 in just over 31 hours! Bishop Bruskewitz addressed our happy celebration, received our Petitions of support, thanked us and granted our request for a blessing. Comments are closed.
