When Fr. James Martin retweets another priest you generally know what you're getting, but sometimes you still have a what-the-hell-is-that moment.
This is one of those moments.
The tweet is from Fr. Peter Wojcik who tweets a picture of the Holy Family as illegal immigrants, illegally entering a country. Fr. Wojcik then encourages illegals to continue to dream of illegally entering countries because, (get this)...Mary believed God was faithful to his promise.
What the hell does that mean? That God promises people who want to enter countries illegally that they will get there? Encouraging people to make the deadly trek across borders that is known to kill people?
Great message Fr. Wojcik, how many people will you have killed by encouraging this?
Talk about using Jesus for politics! This is disgraceful and potentially deadly!
Way to go Father.
In Christ and praying for priests with brains,

One more thing...
Guess who these two are...?
Can't tell by their clothes? Neither could I.
It's Father Wojcik and Sister Celine.
Christmas wish #2...bring back the cassocks and habits!
