John Hardon SJ on Edmund Campion SJ

"Well, before women wanted to become priests, Queen Elizabeth wanted to be Pope. That's why Campion shed his blood. Because a woman claimed to be Pope in England, it's that simple. How we need today, this loyalty to the Holy See, this … loyalty to the Bishop of Rome.

We've been closing with an invocation, let's make this one a prayer. St. Edmund Campion, martyr for the Roman Primacy, obtain for us, but especially for the Church's bishops and priests, such obedient loyalty to the Vicar of Christ that like you, they will not be afraid to proclaim the truth and like you, they will be willing to shed their blood for Jesus Christ.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen".
