Priests and Prelates, Perverts & Predators – What Is a Faithful Catholic To Do?

 

 

A plethora of priestly pedophiles, perverts, and pederasts, are and, for decades, have been attacking, raping, and abusing their victims. Priests, bishops, and cardinals have been hiding their wickedness and their demonic actions from those in the pews, while their enabler bishops and cardinals have shuttled them around the country, and around the world; knowing what they had done and that in many cases, almost certainly, with their new prelate-provided cover, they would do it again, and again, and again.

 

Bishops, archbishops and cardinals, both those guilty of these abuses and those covering up for them, have stolen billions of dollars from the faithful to pay off the victims, who were and are overwhelmingly boys and young men. In the United States alone over four billion dollars have been paid. Their clerical poison has permeated not only parishes and dioceses – by one estimate each and every diocese around the world –  but also the papal palace itself.

 

Now it is expected – based on previously proclaimed and published heresies  – that these same wolves and hirelings are going to welcome a new would-be pseudo-magisterial teaching that those voluntarily engaging in loving homosexual actions, although they do not achieve the perfect ideals of love and of marriage, have a smidgeon of the ideals, enough to make what they do acts of virtue; that, eventually, gradually, they will achieve the ideals.

 

The perverse attempt at new dogma will go on to say that, for those who freely choose to engage in loving homosexual actions, their voluntarily doing so is the will of God Almighty; that the voice of their consciences, telling them “this is not just OK, but virtuous” is the voice of God for them. Never mind that the voice of God for millions of others is directly contradicting this voice that they hear.

 

All the faithful will be required to publicly welcome them and integrate them into the ongoing life of their parish communities, with all the public adulterers already receiving Holy Communion. And those priests and bishops, known to actively and regularly engage in these actions, will smirk, smile and parade (with pride),  their sins each time they walk, or dance, to an altar.

 

What is a faithful catholic to do?

 

Suppose you do not have your own radio talk show. You do not have a regularly syndicated newspaper column or your own internet blog site. You do not write books or articles and you are not a very good public speaker. In the face of all this monstrous priestly perversion and pervasive prelatel evil, what can you do?

 

Those here on God’s good earth for some decades more than half a century will recall a TV show called “The Christophers,” whose theme song included these words:

 

“If everyone lit just one little candle, what a bright world this would be.”

 

Each faithful catholic can light such a “candle” that cannot be extinguished, not by demons and not by the wicked priests, not by the evil bishops. That candle is a single act of goodness, an act of virtue, a freely chosen act that brings into the world a good that was not there before.

 

The first principle of the natural law has often been translated from the original Latin as “Do good, avoid evil.” The Latin verb translated as “do” is the verb “facere,” which can also be translated as “make.” No human being can create in the way God creates from nothing; but each human being can freely choose to do good human actions and, in doing so, can “make” good. (for further discussion, see https://abyssum.org/2015/09/07/is-it-better-to-make-good-than-to-do-good-the-answer-is-yes/)

 

God makes each person in the divine image and likeness, giving each person free will to choose to “make good and avoid evil.”  God also made each person unique (see, e.g. my article “Each Person Is a Divine Revelation, Catholic Lane,” http://www.catholiclane.com/each-person-is-a-divine-revelation/). This means that there is good that each person can “make” that no other person can make.

 

Such good, once made, such an action once done, cannot be un-made or undone. In a sense, such good will be forever. All the powers of evil, demonic and human, within the Church today cannot destroy such a good, once made by a free person. Each such good made by a faithful catholic in today’s world will shine like that “one little candle.”

 

One such act  “makes” good, a small good, but still unique, a good that can bring God back to earth as did the Last Christian in Myles Connolly’s Mr. Blue:

 

 

“On top of that black tower of the devil in the kingdom of the Anti-Christ,” said Blue, “after all those centuries of extermination, there stood a priest in amice and alb, maniple, chasuble, girdle and stole, heir in a noble line of Christ’s servants, clad in their symbols of chastity, charity, honor and faith. The figure of Christ’s cross lay on his back. The anointment of Christ was on his soul. Before him was his altar, his case topped with altar stone and missal and chalice. On it lay the corporal with the wafer he had made from the wheat he had grown. By it stood the two cruets of water and wine. He waited until first there was a streak of light across the east. Then he bowed down before his altar. In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus sancti. Amen. The Mass had begun. He was keeping his promise to bring God back to earth.”

. . . .

“The last Christian,” said Blue fervidly, “was a priest. Can you see that heroic figure in the twilight of the world saying Mass in the citadel of the Anti-Christ?

. . . .

“It was magnificent,” exclaimed Blue as if he were telling of something he saw. “And the while he is making the sign of the cross over the wafer of bread, the powers of the Anti¬-Christ are gathering. He has been seen.

. . . .

“Veni sanctificator omnipotens, aeternae Deus. ‘Come Thou Who makest holy, almighty and eternal God…’ He is beseeching the blessing of the Holy Ghost.”

    The Mass goes on.

    “The Master of the IGW has summoned the marshal of his soldiers. ‘Stop the Mass immediately!’ he commands.

“The marshal reports that planes are speeding to the tower.

 . . . .

“The Master is furious. ‘Bomb the tower. Destroy it.  Demolish it. But stop the Mass!…’

“His face was black,” said Blue. “From his own tower he could see the silhouetted figure bending over his small altar. He tears his flesh in his rage.

“Two, three, four planes are circling above the tower. One drops a huge shell . . . Another bomb falls. Another misses. …

     “But now the priest bows low over his altar. Qui pridie quam pateretur… He begins the words of the consecration, the words that shall change the bread and wine of his altar into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.  “He approaches Christ’s own words at the Last Supper. “One plane is now low over the roof of the tower, so low that the crew can make out the figure of the Cross on the priest’s chasuble. A bomb is made ready. . .

“And now the priest comes to the words that shall bring Christ to earth again. His head almost touches his altar: Hoc est enim corpus meum…

 Blue was whispering. I think he was shivering.

     “The bomb did not drop. No. No. There was a moment of awful silence. Then, a burst of light beside which day itself is dusk. Then, a trumpet peal, a single trumpet peal that shook the universe. Then, the sun blew up like a bubble. The stars and planets vanished like sparks. The earth burst asunder…And through this unspeakably luminous new day, through the vault of the sky ribbed with lightning came Christ as He had come after the Resurrection. It was the end of the world!”

     Blue’s last words were just barely audible.

    “The Kingdom of the Anti-Christ disappeared like ashes in a whirlwind. And hastening up out of their tombs and resting places came the souls of the just, happy, hearty, wholesome, to greet their king.”

     Blue paused. Then he added: “Father White who had been No. 2,757,311 found himself a hero even in heaven.”

 

A single act of goodness can be this “burst of light,” and can initiate this shaking of the universe.

 

George Orwell spent his professional life crusading against totalitarianism in all its forms, but he never dreamed that Jesus’s Church would be infested with the worst sort of totalitarians. His last sentence of Animal Farm about how the pigs could no longer be distinguished from the farmers can be paraphrased today:

 

The faithful outside looked from priest to pedophile, from pedophile to bishop, from bishop to pederast, from pederast to archbishop, from archbishop to pervert, and then from pervert to cardinal; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

  1. It is important to remember that each man will receive reward for his making good and each man will receive Justice for his making bad. God is love. Love is not God. The apparition at Medjugorie is teaching that love is God. Love is not God.

  2. @ Guy McClung.

    I appreciate your post. A great way to end my day pondering the inevitable.
    Thank you.

  3. I read Myles Connolly’s “Mr. Blue” along with Hugh Benson’s “Lord of the World” some years back and still have them. I recently re-read Lord of the World thinking the end scenario you describe was in there but it was not. Thanks to you I will now, with eager anticipation, re-read “Mr. Blue”. It is frustrating and oftentimes embarrassing to see what’s happening in the Church, but this is the One True Faith and I will never leave it as I eagerly await the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  4. Philip-Hard to do in these times that can seem so dark- but your “inevitable” is the return D. Tom eagerly awaits. Often my problem is deeply, deliciously desiring God’s justice for all clerical predators and the man currently in papal white,while begging for me His mercy. Some small proof the clerical demons now apparently in control and running rampant, some folks, aware of what is going on, but truy seeking the truth and the Truth, are converting to catholicism. How could that be if the homosexual hierarchy is winning ? They will lose, and, if unrepentant, lose all and only what matters. Let us each try to make some little good today. Guy

  5. I find it helpful to offer up my suffering because of these sexual predators to God. Otherwise I might go off my sanity. Only God can give them their justice.

  6. with all that has happened over my years as a believer it is strange that the church is now leaving me but my faith is still strong

  7. @ Guy.

    Agreed.
    I do try each day. Try to bring a smile to the sojourners who are ending their hike in this valley of tears. I try to light a candle for the young who have never know what faith means or hope for that matter.
    I honestly do try.
    The JRR Tolkien’s wit and style comes to my mind as all seems lost..yet the Light enters in and the outnumbered and weary who have struggled against all odds are refreshed and renewed as evil is squashed. On the wings of eagles the elect, the virtuous, the unsung hero’s fly to safety.

  8. Lots of journalists are letting it be known that what everyone always knew about McCarrick, everyone has always known about all, or nearly all, current American cardinals, and many bishops. It should be the shared top priority of all Catholic journalists to match the sordid stories of the rapes of children, young men, seminarians, and priests to the names of the perpetrators. It is also time for the so-called “good” bishops to break ranks and tell what they know, even though the pope himself can be relied upon to crush them.

  9. Try not to use “gay” – that implies robots who have no free will and/or some kind of ontological status or that God made one to sin.

    from eponymousflower :

    U.S. bishops who are publicly known to be gay:

    Retired Bishop Dan Ryan of Springfield, IL. Did he tell us he was gay? No. Did his brother bishops tell us he was gay? No. Then how did we find out? Through the offices of the civil justice system.

    Retired Bishop Patrick Ziemann of Santa Rosa, CA. Did he tell us he was gay? No. Did his brother bishops tell us he was gay? No. Then how did we find out? Through the offices of the civil justice system.

    Retired Bishop Kendrick Williams of Lexington, KY. Did he tell us he was gay? No. Did his brother bishops tell us he was gay? No. Then how did we find out? Through the offices of the civil justice system.

    Retired Archbishop Rembert Weakland of Milwaukee, WI. Did he tell us he was gay? No. Did his brother bishops tell us he was gay? No. Then how did we find out? His lover broke the news on Good Morning America

  10. July 13 God is love. Jesus Christ is the revelation of God and the proof that God is love and our Father.
    Love is not God. Still the alleged apparition at Medjugorie is telling people that love is God causing some people to believe and preach that God is both sexes as both male and female love.
    Jesus Christ is the revelation of God.
    God, the Father created Adam. From Adam God created Eve. Man is the glory of God. Woman is the glory of man.
    Some preach that the Holy Spirit the Love WHO proceeds from God, the Father and God the Son is both male and female using Wisdom as proof for Wisdom is female. Wisdom is as are Faith, Hope and Charity a gift of the Holy Spirit.
    The Holy Spirit, the love Who proceeds from the God, the Father and God, the Son is a person, a sovereign person, one of the three sovereign Persons of the Supreme Sovereign Being, of Whom Jesus Christ is the Revelation. By His very relation to God, the Father and God, the Son, the Holy Spirit is male.
    All men and all women, all persons, are created and endowed with sovereign personhood, Sovereign personhood is the image and likeness of God in mankind into Whom mankind is created and into Whom our innate, unalienable human are endowed.
    All Constitutional law and freedoms are instituted by the sovereign personhood of mankind, the image and likeness of God in mankind, to safeguard the sovereign personhood of mankind, both male and female, created equal.
    Only Jesus Christ as the Revelation of God is able to offer sacrifice in atonement and reparation for the sins of Adam and of mankind.
    Women who pursue ordination to ascend the altar of God are forfeiting their destiny in eternity, their physical identity and their vocations to serve God by their sovereign personhood.
    In addition: Bella Dodd, a reformed communist (communists live by denying God and by defying the sovereign personhood of the individual) revealed that the Communist Party sent hundreds and hundreds of men into Catholic Church seminaries to destroy the Catholic Church. The Lavender Mafia is the Communist Party’s ignoble effort to instill the heresy that love is God.
    God is love.

  11. “Confession? Who needs it? If the public can’t forgive you then there really is no forgiveness.”
    Confession in the Sacrament of Penance forgives your sins. The penitent must be willing to do the temporal punishment for his sins. The temporal punishment for sin is very often imposed by civil authorities, the death penalty, imprisonment and fines. This the Justice of God Whom the personification of God’s perfect Justice they are. They are called by name and office title JUSTICE.

  12. We consider the Church as a remnant only. This Francis-Church is not the Church and not the faith. The faith is what we carry, not them. They have all the power, the buildings, the influence, the titles, but we have the faith and they will not take it from us. What God allows through His permitting will eventually turn out for the good, even if we don’t live to see it.
    What sorrows me most is the suffering children and young people. They deserve better. But I can only pray for them, and God hears.
    Stay the course, fellow pilgrims. I keep my ear attuned to the heavens, someday that horn may blow and their game is over. Viva Christo Rey!

  13. This article starts well but then gets soft.
    The ‘good’ each must do must be modeled on Christ attacking the
    money-lenders or denouncing the chief priests. It must NOT be a kind of ‘obedient kindness’ but a ferocious goodness displayed by King David, Joshua or Sampson.
    So people must withhold, for the rest of our lives, ALL money. Cancel all direct debits NOW. Do not give any money to the global clerical establishment AT ALL.

  14. Evangeline-Yes, you echo a great saint, Athanasius: “They have the buildings, we have the faith. Guy

    “Saint Athanasius lived in the fourth century during the time of what used to be considered the greatest crisis of faith ever to befall the Catholic Church, the Arian Heresy. (The Arians denied the Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ). The vast majority of Churchmen fell into this heresy, so much so that Saint Jerome wrote of the period, “The whole world groaned and was amazed to find itself Arian”. Athanasius was the Bishop of Alexandria in Egypt for 46 years. He was banned from his diocese at least five times and spent a total of 17 years in exile. He even suffered an unjust excommunication from Pope Liberius (325-366) who was under Arian influence. It is a cold fact of history that Athanasius stood virtually alone against the onslaught of heretical teaching ravaging the Church of his day – begetting the familiar phrase, “Athanasius contra mundum”, that is, “Athanasius against the world”.

    The famous convert to the Church, Ven. John Henry Newman, described him as a “principal instrument, after the Apostles, by which the sacred truths of Christianity have been conveyed and secured to the world.” Often referred to as the Champion of Orthodoxy, Saint Athanasius was undoubtedly one of the most courageous defenders of the Faith in the entire history of the Church. If anyone can be singled out as a Saint for our times, surely it is Saint Athanasius. The following letter of his could, almost word for word, have been written yesterday.

    “May God console you! … What saddens you … is the fact that others have occupied the churches by violence, while during this time you are on the outside. It is a fact that they have the buildings – but you have the Apostolic Faith. They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in the struggle – the one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith? True, the premises are good when the Apostolic Faith is preached there; they are holy if everything takes place there in a holy way …

    “You are the ones who are happy; you who remain within the Church by your Faith, who hold firmly to the foundations of the Faith which has come down to you from Apostolic Tradition. And if an execrable jealousy has tried to shake it on a number of occasions, it has not succeeded. They are the ones who have broken away from it in the present crisis. No one, ever, will prevail against your Faith, beloved Brothers. And we believe that God will give us our churches back some day.

    “Thus, the more violently they try to occupy the places of worship, the more they separate themselves from the Church. They claim that they represent the Church; but in reality, they are the ones who are expelling themselves from it and going astray. Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ.”

  15. Just about two years ago, the parish priest at my mother’s parish died suddenly of a heart attack. It was a surprise because he was only about 50 or 51 years old.

    The replacement pastor had to inform the parish faithful that the previous pastor had a bad gambling habit and spent tens of thousands of the parish’s money on this particular sin. That wasn’t all. The deceased pastor had a homosexual lover who made their affair public on Facebook.

    I have a distant cousin in the Midwest who married her “wife”.

    We don’t know the exact depth of the penetration of this perversion in the clergy. We only know that it is deep.

    Homosexualism is evil and only by exposing it to the light of day can it be destroyed. You would think that the spread of AIDS would have taught these people something, but no. They are like Pharoah. God will not be mocked.

  16. Fatima. Of course you are right. And I agree with you re withholding money. So let’s do the good that will let us “partake of the divine nature,” good which Jorge and his minions cannot counteract, and quit funding the peversity and corruption. Maybe you and I can be Samson or Joshua, but most folks are not made that way-so doing the good and withholding the money are great for them. We do need Joan Of Arc and some sons of thunder.
