Fr. Drinan Has Died

Fr. Robert Drinan, 86, the first Catholic priest to become a voting member of Congress, has died. He was an example of what a priest should not represent. Not only did he support contraception, but he also strongly supported the horror of abortion! What a scandelous man, who was supposed to be serving the Flock of Jesus Christ! He even openlly supported Clinton's veto of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act. A priest is called to lay down his life so that others may have life. However, Fr. Drinan supported the murder of millions of innocent, unborn children. He is a disgrace to the Holy Catholic Church.

Saint John Chrysostom said: "Few bishops are saved and many priests are damned". Let's pray for the soul of Fr. Drinan; may he have repented from his grave errors before his death.

May the Lord have mercy on his soul!

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Your Mercy. Amen.

How arrogant and self-righteous can you be?! A disgrace to the Holy Catholic Church?!?! We're *all* disgraces to the Holy Catholic Church. We're all the prodigal children! The man is dead, have some compassion! Requiescat in pace.

He does have compassion. He prayed for his soul.

I did have compassion, but I must speak out against such people who create scandal. There is a need for people to know the truth of what each person did. And that man did many grave erroneous things.

That's why we really need to pray for his soul.

Ryan, you operating under the "calling someone a sinner is judgmental" error.
Fr. Drinan has a long,public record of opposing Church teachings on life issues at every turn. He finished his life saying Mass for Nancy Pelosi whose support of abortion is well known. This DOES reveal the state of his soul as he didn't mind giving scandal.
Of course, we have all sinned, but few have so publicly as this poor soul, may Almighty God have mercy on him.
I pray with Catholic Fire, Moneybags, and Peter, that he had the grace of final repentance, and made it into Purgatory.

I didn't realize until today he was the priest who celebrated the Mass(Nancy Pelosi). BTW, wonder how he reconciled his being a priest and believing abortion was okay. May he rest in peace.

May God have mercy on his soul!!

Have you ever read Sr. Josefa Menendez's (The Way of Divine Love,) visions of the priests in hell?

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord...
