Back Story: Cardinal Newman Society

Pope Francis removed Cardinal Raymond Burke from head of the Apostolic Signatura (Vatican “Supreme Court;”) He did step down – way down – and is relegated to the largely “ceremonial role” as head of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

When some American Catholics worry that the hierarchy is tilting toward the Republican Party, or taking the church back to the 19th century (or earlier), they often point to Cardinal Raymond Burke as Exhibit A.

Bob Laird – from Virginia – aligned with Cardinal Burke  at the Newman Center/Virginia- opined in a post about SF Archbishop Cordileone and the high school students of  San Francisco:

“Archbishop Cordileone has been severely criticized by those who do not know or understand Catholic teaching and others who seek to directly or indirectly undermine it. Agree with the Church or not, but the archbishop’s job is to lead Catholics and…

Pope announces Newark Cardinal Tobin

Great News: FROM the New York Times Cardinal Tobin

images-7…In short, he is just the kind of leader Pope Francis is elevating to realign the church in the United States with his priorities.

As the pope has made clear over the past three years, fancy lifestyles, formality and regal titles like Prince of the Church are out of style for cardinals. So is an emphasis on the divisive issues of abortion and same-sex marriage, even though the church’s underlying position on those issues has not changed.

Instead, in the pope’s view, the church should emphasize humility and service to the poor. It should be multicultural, welcoming different styles of worship. It should reach out to other faiths and stand up for immigrants, refugees and nuns….

Top 5 Tips for a Merry Christmas

photo_8735_20081228Feeling like a Donder or a Blitzen?  Get rid of the grumps.

No grinches allowed.

Tis the Season: Now is the time to have yourself a merry little Christmas and kick up your heels, Cupid.

 Top Five  Ways to Get a Kick Out of the Holiday

1. Say ‘Merry Christmas’ to everyone. Bah, humbug to the PC  “Happy Holiday” malarkey. Go ahead, say Merry Christmas to the people on the bus, the doorman, the waitress, barista, the taxi driver the clerk, the bus driver, the people in the elevator and everyone! What goes around…

2. Wear red. It’s fun, it’s festive and red-quired. Come on, don your red apparel. Everyone should wear at least one red article of clothing. No Santa hats – unless you are under 18. Donate the old 75% off- Christmas sweater you got at Mervyns -20 years ago, to the less fortunate. Go, Red!

3. Memorize A Visit from St Nicholas by Clement C. Moore and recite it at the drop of a hat. (NOTE: Bring a hat wherever you go)

4. Add the quality of jollity and frivolity – laugh a little!  see Will Ferrell in “ELF”

5. Reach Out and Contribute – One Warm Coat -in December – is collecting gently used coats, hats, sweaters, jackets, sweatshirts, mittens. Drive Up – drop off.

Please see here– One Warm Coat

Do not rest ye merry gentle people; sing, stroll, dance, prance, dream. 

Call the Scrooges the Grinches, the Donders, and the Blitzens

and wish Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Go – Vigano- the sooner the better

Cardinal Ouellet in his letter had called on

Archbishop Viganò to stop his “rebellion,” to repent and be converted.

AB Viganò’s  huge hostility rages toward Pope Francis…

… the Vatican decided  Viganò had become too enmeshed in U.S. Culture Wars; especially  re: Same-Sex Marriage

webRNS-Pope-Vigano1-082818-990x556-2-2

The evil AB  arranged the meeting between Pope Francis and Kim Davis, the former uppity Kentucky Clerk who refused to sign a marriage certificate for a same-sex couple, blindsiding the pope during his 2015 U.S. visit.

Vigano must go. Is he the Thrust behind Complicit Clergy?!

Cardinal Sins: Roger Mahony responsible:$740 million litigation costs?

Los Angeles Times By Victoria Kim

February 18, 2014, 7:00 p.m.

The Los Angeles Archdiocese has settled what officials said is the last of its pending priest molestation lawsuits, bringing to a close a decade of wrenching abuse litigation that cost the Catholic Church more than $740 million.

The church reached the $13-million agreement with 17 victims last week, on the eve of a trial scheduled to begin Feb. 14 over the alleged acts of Father Nicolas Aguilar-Rivera, a visiting cleric from Mexico who police believe molested more than two dozen boys over a mere nine months in 1987.

Eleven men, who were ages 7 to 12 when they were allegedly abused by the priest, were scheduled to appear in court to argue that Cardinal Roger M. Mahony and his aides had allowed the priest to flee in the days before police were notified.

builder of an outrageously expensive cathedral

Cardinal Mahony: He blogs, he is on Facebook and

he will not  talk about shuffling the inappropriate priests from one parish to another for decades.

Mahony may not go down in Catholic history  

as a real estate magnate – a builder of a glittering, towering cathedral- but as a man who looked the other way – time and time again – as priests, under his watch, repeatedly abused children. 

He shuffled  pedophiles from parish to parish…and, now ise now infamous for it.

“No No on Vigano and Sal of San Francisco”

AB Viganò has a very checkered history when it comes to sex abuse in the church. 

When AB John Nienstedt, the former head/ Archdiocese of Minneapolis-St. Paul ( a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage)  was accused of mishandling sexual abuse claims…  Viganò, w (the pope’s representative to the United States) used HIS office to quash an inquiry into the allegations once investigators discovered charges of Sexual Misconduct against  Nienstedt, who eventually resigned.

Bad Boy/Mean Man

Viganò’s  hostility toward Pope Francis, noting that the Pope recalled the AB from his post in 2016.

The decision came after the Vatican decided  Viganò had become too enmeshed in U.S. Culture Wars; especially  re: Same-Sex Marriage

The evil AB  arranged the meeting between Pope Francis and Kim Davis, the former uppity Kentucky Clerk who refused to sign a marriage certificate for a same-sex couple, blindsiding the pope during his 2015 U.S. visit. Vigano must go.

 

From America Magazine : Cupich and Tobin – the Voices of Reason

“..

Cardinal Cupich released a statement on Sunday calling the letter “astonishing” and correcting what he said are factual errors. He points to Archbishop Viganò’s claim that he was appointed to the Vatican body that chooses bishops “right after he was made a cardinal,” but notes he was appointed to the Congregation for Bishops in July 2016 and that he was not named a cardinal until October. He called for a “thorough vetting” of the claims made in the letter.

Cardinal Tobin also discounted the allegations in the letter, saying in a statement on Aug. 27 that they “cannot be understood as contributing to the healing of survivors of sexual abuse.”

The statement said the letter is filled with “factual errors, innuendo and fearful ideology.” It said the church pledges to “move ahead resolutely” in its efforts to protect children and to break down the “structures and culture that enable abuse.”

Sal in San Francisco is in bed – as it were- with Vigano.

Cordileone Says: “Moreover, while having no privileged information about the Archbishop McCarrick situation, from information

I do have about a very few of the other statements Archbishop Viganò makes,

I can confirm that they are true.

His statements, therefore, must be taken seriously.”

Really?

 

2018 Jennifer Weiner writes: NY Times

“How Do I Explain Justice Kavanaugh to My Daughters?”

The spectacle of this confirmation has reminded us that to many people, women’s suffering is a joke.


“Speak up, even if those in power do not want to listen.

Speak your truth, even if men laugh.

Be loud, even though power prefers girls quiet.

Speak up, even if they call you strident or shrill.

Don’t let anyone put a hand — real or metaphorical — over your mouth.

March, demonstrate, chant, shout, vote.

And maybe someday, you, or your daughters,

or your daughter’s daughters

will be the ones with the last laugh.”
