Pray For David Domet, “Vox Cantoris”
As I write this, there are no new blog posts on “Vox Cantoris”.
I do not know what is going on, but it is difficult not to fear what might be going on: talks with lawyers, and news of big expenses looming; a threat, perhaps, to a serene life in retirement; and a threat, perhaps, to whatever savings were made in a life of thrift for love of the children who would inherit it one day.
I do not know what is going on. But I think Mr Domet is a brave man if he can sleep at night. I also wonder how Father Rosica can sleep at night, but someway I think he is one of those who never have such problems.
I do not know what is going on. But I think appropriate to say here, in public, that if Mr Domet thinks the pressure of Father Rosica’s lawfare is more than he can bear (both financially and emotionally), he should not think it inappropriate to desist in whatever way he thinks can be done reasonably, and allowing him to continue blogging and keep making the work of the Lord in serenity.
There are many ways to fight wars, and even the most courageous Crusaders have known how to retreat if they felt it was the tactical decision to make. Not saying Mr Domet should retreat, of course. It is for him and, I suppose, his lawyer to weigh the risks, the implications and the costs of a protracted fight. But hey: if he lives in the wrong Country, he lives in the wrong Country.
There is more I would like to write, but I will wait for the moment because it would not be prudent to say more.
I would like to ask all my readers to keep Mr Domet in their prayers. Bloggers are very often – as in this case – simple people who have a job and a daily life, no great financial resources, and sacrifice countless hours of their free time for the love of God, and in the hope the Blessed Virgin may look at them with a smile every now and then. They are in a very different position from newspapers protected by expert lawyers and massive insurances, and powerful enough on their own.
It is not right to demand this kind of martyrdom of poor bloggers, for trying to help all of us.
Most of you, I am sure, agree with me and would think it obvious. But I think it should be said anyway.
