Keep up the good work Father Greg. God will supply you with the needed grace and strength. Not only freedom of speech and religion, but the Church is on your side.

From a priest in California.

Fr. Gregory,

This morning I read an article posted on Yahoo.com about two students that are organizing to have you removed from the Newman Center. Please know that I am praying for you and all involved. I have shared stories about you and my son, Eric, with many friends who I will call upon to join me in prayer. It's too bad that some folks cannot (yet) accept the TRUTH. God bless you, the FOCUS ministers and ALL the students at GWU.

With much admiration,
Patty Burke

It’s totally classless to make a public scandal out of a private counseling session, especially when the “scandal” is nothing more than a Catholic priest advising a Catholic layperson to follow Catholic teachings.

Exactly, the best spirit in these trying, painful, slighlt absurd circumstances...

The sad thing father is that these pride extremists know exactly what they are doing.

Keep strong with the true faith and don't let them get you down because these days that's all they're good at.

God Bless you father.

I just wanted to let you know my wife and I are praying for you. Please stay strong and don't back down. Remember you have Christ and his army of faithful followers behind you even though you may feel alone. We will pray for your peace of mind and strength as you go through this attack. May God be with you.

Yours in Christ,

Anthony Pomilla

Hi Father. God's mercy is bigger than our sins. Christ selfless act of accepting the struggle our Father laid before him paid for the sins of our selfish desires. Everyday, priests like you help me learn to carry my own cross and unite my struggle with Christ.

Stay strong and may the peace of Christ always shine through you.

I don't know you, you don't know me...I'm way too far to give you real support. I was part of Newman Center in Arizona and I'm back in home country Bolivia. My prayers with you dear Father!

Father,

I am praying for you father, and I am sorrowful for the harm that is being directed to you.

Father, stay strong! You are in my prayers. I will pray for those students as well. It is a sad world we live in when they see evil as good and good as evil.

Thank you for your Christian example. I live in Nebraska and I am praying for you. They persecuted Christ, of course they will persecute you. May the Holy Spirit continue to bless you with wisdom and consolation.

Thank you Father for standing up for the truth in a world I don't recognize anymore. My Catholic faith supports me in a world that hates what I believe. Your courage gives me strength. I will pray for you. Mary

I fear what you are going through will increasingly be the story of courageous priests. Please know that you are giving us hope and courage in a dark time. Many prayers.

God bless you Father for standing up for Truth! Let Truth Himself guide you in all you say and do.
May all our Catholic priests be filled with the desire to be truthful about sin no matter who commits the sin.

Fr. Greg, you're a beautiful witness to the faith of our church. Please keep speaking the truth. "The truth will set you free". May God be by your side, as you're being unjustly persecuted.
