(LifeSiteNews) — Radio host Mike Church is calling on Christians to reclaim June as a reverent month focused on the Sacred Heart of Jesus by celebrating it as “Humility Month.”
Traditionally during June, Catholics have honored the Sacred Heart of Jesus, whose feast day is during that month. June is also the occasion of the feasts of Corpus Christi, Saints Peter and Paul, and Saint John the Baptist – a martyr for the sanctity of marriage.
June is supposed to be a “joyful, reverent” month full of increased Eucharistic Adoration and processions to honor Our Lord, Church told LifeSiteNews.
The radio host maintains that June was chosen as “pride” month by LGBT activists to “create maximum offense against the Son of God and therefore God himself.”
Church said he had been thinking about launching a “Humility Month” initiative since 2016, when the first “really in-your-face, blasphemous ‘pride month’” occurred, as political fights over transgender bathrooms were beginning. (It was only in 2015 that the U.S. Supreme Court redefined marriage; readers may remember that before then, the LGBT movement and American media were focused on emotional stories about homosexual unions and “marriage equality” as opposed to drag queens and transgenderism.)
“With every passing year, more and more, for-profit America … gets on board, to the point now where in 2023, ‘pride month’ is like Christmas. It’s just a forgone conclusion that it’s going to happen,” he added.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have decided to honor the blasphemous anti-Catholic drag group, the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence”, with a Community Hero Award next month on the Feast of the Sacred Heart.
This blatant contempt for the Catholic faith cannot go unchallenged.
SIGN: The LA Dodgers must revoke their plan to honor these ‘transgender nuns’
The Major League Baseball franchise made the announcement in a Monday evening statement, saying it had decided to honor the group — which engages in deliberately offensive sexualized burlesque mockeries of Catholicism — after just last week canceling plans to do so when the public expressed outrage.
“After much thoughtful feedback from our diverse communities, honest conversations within the Los Angeles Dodgers organization and generous discussions with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Los Angeles Dodgers would like to offer our sincerest apologies to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends and families,” the statement read.
In one move, you managed to turn off conservatives and slap Christians in the face with disgusting drag nuns. What a disgrace you’ve become. Was recently at a game. Won’t be coming back.

The baseball team said it will ask the sacrilegious group “to take their place on the field at our 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16th.”
SIGN: The LA Dodgers must NOT allow this mockery to take place
The Dodgers’ Monday announcement comes after it previously agreed to dis-invite the group after outrage by Catholics and other conservatives.
Among others, Catholic Vote and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida vocally objected to the decision to honor the so-called “sisters.”
“Given the strong feelings of people who have been offended by the sisters’ inclusion in our evening, and in an effort not to distract from the great benefits that we have seen over the years of Pride Night, we are deciding to remove them from this year’s group of honorees,” the team said in a since-deleted May 17 announcement.
San Francisco’s Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone had previously thanked the Dodgers for their decision to roll back the invitation.
In its Monday statement, after apologizing for temporarily dis-inviting the anti-Catholic hate group, the Dodgers promised to “work with our LGBTQ+ partners to better educate ourselves, find ways to strengthen the ties that bind and use our platform to support all our fans who make diversity part of the Dodgers family.”
Make your voice heard NOW, before this blasphemy takes center stage.
SIGN: The LA Dodgers must not honor anti-Catholic, anti-Christian drag ‘nuns’
Conservatives responded on social media by slamming the baseball team for caving.
“Yes, it is vital that the national pastime honor and support those who mock religion and decency,” reacted Daily Wire co-founder and podcaster Ben Shapiro.
“The Gay Mafia will always extract their payment for ‘protection,’ said Crisis magazine editor-in-chief Eric Sammons.
Some social media users hinted that the team should face the same backlash as beer company Bud Light, which is continuing to endure a massive boycott after its decision to honor transgender-identifying TikTok activist Dylan Mulvaney.
But the Dodgers weren’t always woke and divorced from traditional religious practice.
Former Dodgers great Sandy Koufax, a left-handed pitcher who was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in fame in 1972, famously refused to pitch during Game 1 of the World Series because it fell on Yom Kippur, the most important holy day in the Jewish calendar. He previously opted out of games that landed on Passover and Rosh Hashanah.
And Koufax wasn’t alone in living an active faith. Legendary announcer Vin Scully, the “Voice of the Dodgers” for 67 years, was a staunch Catholic. Scully, who passed away last year at age 94, was described by Catholic News Agency’s Jonah McKeown as “a devout Catholic who found in his faith a source of joy and comfort and sought to share it with others through personal kindness and philanthropy.”
As LifeSiteNews previously reported, Scully was devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary and even narrated a two-CD audio recording of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary in 2016.

“Humility Month” offers Christians an alternative to the modern celebration of homosexuality, transgenderism, and sexual deviancy that now dominates the first month of summer. Church encourages people to put “Celebrate Humility Month” signs in their yards, display “Humility Month” stickers on their car windows, pray the Litany of Humility, and read Humility of Heart by Father Cajetan Mary da Bergamo.
The “Humility Month” initiative comes as the Los Angeles Dodgers re-issued, after briefly rescinding, an invitation to an openly anti-Catholic group of drag queens, the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.” The baseball team said it will ask the sacrilegious group “to take their place on the field at our 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16th.”
June 16 is the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Catholic liturgical calendar this year.
“We can start treating [June] as the regal, royal month of Our Lord and His social kingship that it is,” said the radio host. The feasts of the Sacred Heart and Corpus Christi should be treated as the significant holidays they are. Public prayer and processions, especially for the feast of Corpus Christi, are particularly important. “Pride” parades can be countered with peaceful, calm rosaries of reparation.
“Reparations have to be made all during the month for all of these abominations” against God and the Sacred Heart, said Mr. Church.
“Be peaceful, be respectful, be reverent,” and practice “spiritual situational awareness.”
“Always proceed as you’re representing Our Lord here … the main thing is, I would say, act Christian. Follow the golden rule,” he advised.
And learn the rosary prayers and the St. Michael prayer in Latin. “I hear from a good friend that the devil hates Latin.”
