Tuesday, June 18, 2002 At Thrown Back, Fr. Rob Johansen responds to Michael Rose & Co. and offers eloquent testimony to the priesthood:
While the Bishops were debating their important policies, rules, and position papers, the real Work of the Church was going right along, in obscure, unknown situations like me anointing that dying man. All of the policies and rules and Important Debates are just so much wind compared to that...All the bloggings, bleatings, and bloviations in the world don't amount to beans against the Sacrament by which I helped usher that one soul into eternity. Blogging is fun, but Anointing that old man is why I Became a Priest.
