Margaret Mary recalls one run in.

“During the last St. Patrick’s Day, a former FBI agent who was hired by the Diocese of Buffalo tried to get the best of me. There were two policemen who were on either side of my shoulders.  There were policemen behind me as well as in front of me. It was really jarring.”

Why have the Church Fathers not been open and transparent with the Laity of their Church for centuries? So where is the truth to be found?
