MY COMMENTS: The conservative blogs (and by that I mean what conservative means politically) are up in arms because Pope Francis and his social apostolate coordinator, Kardinal Konrad Krejewski (the next pope) are helping transgendered poor people who have lost financial support because they are street prostitutes and the Coronavirus and social/physical distancing has cut off (among other things cut off or added) their source of income.
Most Catholic social apostolates don’t ask why people are poor and hungry and live on the streets. We know that it is drug and alcohol abuse, mental problems, and a whole host of other issues that has led to their state in life. We don’t ask if they are prostitutes, transgendered, members of gains, murderers, rapists, or the like. We offer them assistance and if it is a good Catholic social apostolate, offer them the Word of God, Catholic teaching and spirituality and a reason to allow God’s grace to rehabilitate them and restore them. If the latter things are lacking and only food, clothing and money thrown at them, along with shelter, then Rome we have a problem.
But you can’t use the Social Apostolate of the Church to force conversion or reconversion to the Church and Her Head, Jesus Christ. Jesus offers salvation; He doesn’t impose it.
Do SSPX parishes and FSSP parishes and traditional leaning OF parishes that offer EF Masses, like St. John Cantius in Chicago, offer a social apostolate to the poor and do they demand a moral lifestyle from the ecumenical and no faith at all poor they support?
