Except that today was his last day as Archbishop of the Los Angeles Archdiocese!
He’ll be remembered for closing down seminaries and convents and picking on little old nuns like Mother Angelica, building the Taj Mahony, but mostly for losing millions of nominal Catholics to indifferentism and agnosticism.
His many low points are too numerous to recount but his deconstruction of the Mass until it looked like nothing more than a campfire sing-a-long is quite shameful.
His promotion of syncretism and modernism has gained him the infamy he so richly earned among his peers.
I’d like to give a hat tip to Adam Bartlett of The Chant Café for the following video that displays Cardinal Mahony’s disdain of liturgy:
This last video I would like to dedicate to my old blogging friend Quintero of L.A. Catholic who has documented so well the many atrocities that Cardinal Mahony has inflicted on the good Catholics of Los Angelese.
Vaya con Dios mi amigo.
