In the 1990′s - Some former priest at St Z called God “Mother-Father God” and I was so disgusted, I knelt for Holy Communion. That evil priest refused to give me Holy Communion. However, I knew that Jesus was “whole and entire” under both Species of Holy Communion, so I received the Chalice of the Blood of Christ, from the Eucharistic Minister. This priest was mad, because I did that. **A college student, from Stuebenville University saw what happened and promised to write a letter to the Bishop, defending me and telling the Bishop, what he saw. So, it did not take long for that bad priest, to be replaced, with a similar Gay Priest. So, that rotten insane, crazy, evil Bishop, only did a “sleight of hand” but, no real changes, were done for the salvation of, that Catholic Parish.
That, now deceased Bishop, could pray all the rosaries in the world, but he failed as a Catholic Bishop. If your prayer life, does not affect your priesthood, then you are really not praying well, nor do you believe in the Church’s Teachings. I couldn’t stand that Bishop, either. My parish priest got after him, for allowing Rev Eugene Kennedy to teach heresy and psycho-babble anti-Catholicism in our Diocese. This is a Socialist and Communist technique of ”re-education.” I never bought this bunch of malarkey. If this Bishop was insane, it is probably because of “un-confessed” mortal sin. His leadership was non-existent. He always took great joy, when he made me cry. So I have never liked him. I began to hide my crying, angry that he could “push my buttons.” Well, he is where he belongs. Dead. Just like he was on earth. Dead Works. Notoriety yet dead works.
This is the same “Rainbow Priest” who had a “Rainbow Religious Goods Store” that had a Gay Bible, in it’s store. I wasn’t born yesterday. I know that priest was not only teaching heresy, but apostasy and schism, as well, to his parishioners. Yet, no Bishop ever excommunicated him. There is a tacit “climate of tolerance, for wolves,“ in most of the Dioceses, in the United States.
The Bishops do nothing to stop the “theft of sheep and lambs,” in their Dioceses. I do not respect these prelates, nor their bad priests.
HOWEVER: I am required to love them, pray for them, do penance for them, but I do not have to obey their invitations to sin. Having had priests as late as 2011, flip me the bird all during my Confession, you can understand my total disdain, for evil priests. So many fall into “the pits” with them, since the 1960′s. And, yet the true rosary praying, conservative ones, are few and far between. Some Priests are sent, and some send folks on a fools journey, stroking their pride – for their money, for their newest endeavor. I am not blind. I know a lot more than I let on. I let God take care of them. If they are being two-faced, which I think they are, in time, or in eternity they will be “found out.”
God always has the last laugh, not them.
I like Cardinal Arinze, because he speaks the TRUTH.
