There’s a lot of great commentary out there about the changes taking place at the Register and blogosphere, so I won’t repeat them.
I will say that while I’m sorry the changes will result in a loss of income for two Catholic families [i.e., of Mark Shea and Simcha Fisher], I am very happy about the positive ways it will change our ability to evangelize the people we love. Ultimately, these are changes to the efficacy of the truth and salvation of our people. These changes will help us shepherd our people to the fiat of living each day in a state of Sanctifying Grace and I am so happy about this outcome, I could do a cartwheel.
And I am really happy for the folks at EWTN. The rift with faithful Catholics has widened over the years and it had a negative impact upon Mother Angelica’s mission to preserve our families from the hostility within. I truly believe these changes happened with her intercession.
Lots of people contributed to this outcome. People who tried to reach out privately to EWTN, Catholics who were forced to point out the errors on blogs, Austin’s, Steven, John Henry and Jason’s articles over the last few months.
I couldn’t agree more with this comment from Fr. Heilman.
I see an amazing group of devout Catholics who have been beat up by a powerful progressive movement for 50 years, finally seeing some cause for rejoicing. The ship is turning … slowly … but it is turning.
