Bishop Steiner's "Bubble Blessing" Blunder of "MOTA" and their Labryinth
We have a problem with our auxiliary Bishop's discernment of late. There are a myriad of questions regarding celebrating "mass" with Mission of the Atonement (MOTA); their so-called Catholic and Lutheran church and the homosexual promotion of Community of Welcoming Communities after our Archdiocese was bankrupted because of this. Community of Welcoming Communities
Here's the letter I sent him in May 2010:
Hello Bishop Steiner,
Just a question as to your take on Mission of the Atonement. I saw that you blessed the labyrinth and know that this is a mixed Catholic/Lutheran church.
Do you know if the retired priest consecrates with the Lutheran minister and why is this not in the Archdiocesan Oregon Catholic Directory as a valid church.
Just want to get a handle on this.
Since there has been no reply...and it's still going on, now it goes public.
Mission of the Atonement Mission of the Atonement (Synergy in Action) is a blend of what they term "Catholics and Lutherans" using the same readings, songs, etc. UNTIL to comes to Communion. Then they say they each go in their own lines for this "sacrament".
Mission of the Atonement attendance for a Roman Catholic believer, much less a Roman Catholic Bishop, shows that there is no understanding of how MOTA (Mission of the Atonement) conflicts with the Roman Catholic faith
What Mission of the Atonement says about the Roman Catholic church from staff person Susie Snortum. "She identifies herself as Presbyterian, but loves the blurring of denominational lines in the interest of worshiping our one God together."
NO FEAR OF LIVING AS HE WANTS. HE'S ABOVE THE TEACHING OF THE CHURCH?
Some questions: why is this needed for unity when it means watering down our True Faith? How does this "priest" do the mass with the same text as a Lutheran? This is NOT the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ so why is Bishop Steiner approving of this fiasco? Why does this get any attention of all?
Why does the Archdiocese allow this? Why does our Bishop "bless" a less than Christian labyrinth as a wonderful thing when it leads people away from the True Faith? (more coming your way about the labyrinth and its danger). Why is this NOT in the Catholic Directory, but encouraged, since it's still here?
These are a few examples of the "rotten fruit of this spirit".. A degradation of our clergy, and values.

It is not necessary to join MOTA to have an "Ecumenical" Church. Just have a Roman Catholic that stands firm in the faith with lots of friends outside the Church. We don't have to blur the Truth to make friends or to believe we really are better than plain old Roman Catholics. It's true Synergy at it's best.
"Let no one deceive you with empty words, for it is because of these things that the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not associate with them, for once you were darkness, but now you are the light in the Lord; walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them." (Eph 5:6-11)
