In light of the many uncertainties throughout the world, i.e., the covid situation, the election mess, the Vatican suspending Christmas Masses, the ever-increasing militant secularization of the West, etc., have any of you thought of the possibility some of our bishops will lockdown our churches for a second time during Advent/Christmas season?
Regardless of who gets elected, and even if the election results are still being disputed through Christmas, and even if our governor issues no additional covid mandates on churches, I suspect there is a very real possibility our bishops could close down our churches before Christmas day comes around (particularly in the archdiocese of Chicago). I have no insider knowledge or any strong basis for my suspicion apart from the reality that much of what happens on a diocesan level is determined by the actions of the Vatican (either directly or indirectly). That being said, has anyone thought of possible courses of action to prevent this from happening in your diocese? Rosary rallies, prayer vigils outside the cathedral, writing letters to our bishop, speaking to our priests, hoping for the best, etc.?
