Got this email from LSN. A similar link seems to be here.

Please sign. This initiative is very good and well worth supporting.

Only the Successors of the Apostles, our Episcopal Shepherds, can save the Church.

The Church is suffering as never before. Confusion is rampant and division is rife.

Many eminent and orthodox Catholic thinkers believe that a large part of the problem is the failure of many Bishops to forcefully speak the truth of Christ, in and out of season, without counting the cost.

Now, the Lepanto Foundation is launching an appeal to all of the Bishops of the world, encouraging them to be Faithful Shepherds...faithful, first and foremost to the precepts of Christ, His Church and the traditions of our Holy Faith.

Please SIGN this urgent petition. CLICK HERE.

Silence, on the part of the world’s Bishops, is no longer an option!

LifeSiteNews and LifePetitions fully support and endorse the Lepanto Foundation’s appeal to our Bishops.

But, we are UPPING the ante!

Along with SIGNING the petition to the Bishops of the world, we are ALSO calling on faithful Catholics to CONTACT their OWN Bishops, to encourage them to boldly speak-up when issues of faith and morals are at stake.

When you CLICK on the link below, you will have a chance to SIGN the petition...and, you can learn more about how to approach your own Bishop.

For those of us who love our Mother, the Church (Bishops, priests, and laity included), is it not time for this kind of POSITIVE action?

So, when you approach your Bishop, or any other Bishop, just remember that there are still many, many good and holy Bishops - probably the vast majority - who believe in, and love, the precepts of the Faith...but, who are afraid or lack confidence.

Our goal - by contacting them, around the world, and in your home diocese - is not to browbeat or belittle them, but to encourage them in their love of Christ and His Church.

So, please SIGN the petition by clicking here, and, then, please COMMIT to contact and encourage your own Bishop.

Thank you in advance, and may God reward you for encouraging His Shepherds.

Yours faithfully,
Scott Schittl and the whole team at LifeSiteNews and LifePetitions

P.S. - When you SIGN this petition, an email will be sent to the various Bishops’ Conferences around the world - using the very words of the appeal* by our friends at the Lepanto Foundation, calling on the Bishops to shun human respect and careerism in favor of boldly daring to proclaim the truths of the Catholic Faith.

P.P.S. - After you have SIGNED and SHARED the petition, please consider CONTACTING your own Bishop.
Mary, our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion Daily, or at least Weekly, to Offer their Lives. TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING: "My dear Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your most Precious Blood and Your Sacrifice on Calvary, I hereby Offer my whole Life to the Intention of Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with my life, I place at Your disposal all Holy Masses, all my Holy Communions, all Rosaries, all acts of consecration, all my good deeds, all my sacrifices, and the suffering of my entire life for the Adoration and Supplication of the Holy Trinity, for Unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father and Priests, for good Priestly vocations, and for all souls until the end of the world. O my Jesus, please accept my life Sacrifice and my offerings and give me Your grace that I may persevere obediently until my death." Amen. https://www.avemariamaternostra.com/life-offering-promises.html It is recommended that you make this Life Offering as soon as you feel ready, and to renew it from time to time.

Please read the Blessed Mother's promises in the link: those who make it seriously will face no Purgatory (promise 5) since they would have completed it here, will have all their loved ones released from Purgatory the day they offer their life with intent to persevere (promise 4), and can save the souls of all their family members in due time by their life offering (promise 3). It will benefit all souls who have ever lived until time's end (promise 2) A simple effective way for thousands of us to save millions of souls. Inflamed in Large Letters of Love, you will have your name written in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary forever (promise 1).

I signed the petition earlier today.
Like John Vennari (RIP) said "Why not just do it?  What would it hurt?"

They are part of the crisis as well. Why would they want a petition against themselves?

Signed! Thankfully the Bishop in the Diacese I attend has been very good already in addressing this.
