Why do the Bishops treat most Catholics as Second class citizens?

How many common catholics have tried meeting the Bishops and have asked for a meeting?

The standard answer they will get is that the Bishops are busy and will not be free for the next two months.

However what is most surprising is that some persons who insulted our Catholic religion were able to get a meeting with the Bishop and too within a day!!!

What is even more surprising is that they were forgiven by the Archdiocese of Bombay!!!

What is even more surprising is that the persons pursuing the case were kept in the dark about the sudden forgiving nature of our Archdiocese of Bombay .

There is nothing wrong with this forgiving nature ,but what is totally wrong is the selective forgiving nature of the so called Archdiocese of Bombay.

An FIR for theft was lodged by a Priest in Mahim against a 22 year old catholic girl for having stolen Rs.20,000/-.

Before she could be arrested she returned the money and asked to be forgiven.

E mails were sent to the Bishop asking them to forgive the said girl.

But sadly she was arrested and was sent to the lock up, and  produced in court as a criminal.

Till today she is still gong to the Court and taking dates.

It appears that the forgiveness is directly proportional to the richness of the offender.Charity begins at home.

Sad but true.

About The Voice Of Bombay's Catholic Laity

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

  1. The time is near when some of these “Dharma Gurus” will be seeing The Lord face to face.They may ask for forgiveness, What would the Lord say.
    S
    ” So as long as you did this to one of my least of my sisters and brothers you did it to me”
    Then the Lord will cast them into the everlasting fire of hell.
