Young Catholics for Archbishop Cordileone
Dear Archbishop Cordileone,
Coming from various different nations, backgrounds, and traditions, we, the undersigned, are young Catholics standing in solidarity with you. We wish to express our strong support for your valiant efforts to reinforce and uphold the Catholic identity of the schools of your Archdiocese of San Francisco. We thank and commend you for your courage and integrity, and we assure you of our heartfelt prayers.
As the youth of our societies, we are not looking for the Church to lamely conform with the troubled and ultimately dissatisfying ways of the world. Rather, we wish to see the Church - the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church founded by Christ - stand tall and proud in proclaiming the truth of the Gospel.
We absolutely decry and deplore the shameful attacks made against your efforts, and in particular we condemn the bullying intolerance of the 100 so-called Catholics who have publicly called for you to be removed from office.
Like you, we do not intend to shirk the task which God has entrusted to us, that of defending the truth unwaveringly. Though at times this task is challenging, we are encouraged by your readiness to fight for what is right, and we resolutely believe and trust that the light will overcome the darkness.
