The Macfarlanes: An Open Letter to Fellow Catholics

I have been a supporter of the concept of the E5 (Ephesians 5) ministry, which encourages men to fast on behalf of women (especially but not limited to husbands fasting on behalf of their wives. I was concerned at the personal connection between the founder of E5 and Mr. MacFarlane, but I have not wanted to question the ministry which, I believe, has hit upon a need in our society for us to sacrifice for each other. There have been other movements in the church that have fallen into scandal but have been ultimately redeemed. We are called neither to idolize nor demonize the founders of movements, but to attempt to discern whether the impetus is the Holy Spirit or otherwise. This I will continue to do. Please continue to pray for all concerned.
