DERMOT MARTIN’S SUCCESSOR IN DUBLIN.

Many, even those with no particular interest in Roman Catholicism, are watching the religious politics to see who will replace DM in Dublin.

Favourites include Paul Tighe in Rome, Leahy in Limerick and Nulty in Kildare.

In my view, something interesting happened recently when DM withdrew Ciaran O’Carroll from the Irish College in Rome and made him Vicar for Clergy in Dublin.

Diarmuid, Tighe and O’Carroll are all friends.

Tighe and O’Carroll holiday together.

I think it is possible that O’Carroll might get Dermos job.

If he doesn’t, I think he will be made an auxiliary to the new archbishop.

Tighe is now 62 and an ideal age for Dublin with 13 years to serve.

But I’m told Tighe likes Rome and would prefer to go further there?

Leahy is pastoral enough, a Dublin priest and a good theologian.

Nulty is a light weight run about..

I’ve heard Phonsie’s name mentioned. He has Opus Dei connections. He’s basically a neurotic borderline psychotic personality. But it would not be the first time a looney climbed the RCC ladder.

An outsider, I think, in the Jesuit provincial Leonard Maloney. The pope is a Jesuit and met Maloney in Dublin. Mind you  Maloney made a dog’s dinner of the recent Paul Prior Jesuit allegations. But reward for incompetent is right up there in the RCC.

The appointment is very important for the Dublin priests who have not felt cared for by DM. I accept this as being a fact but cannot understand it as DM is very human and compassionate to others. What was behind DM’s poor relationship with the Dublin priests.

Who ever gets Dublin will be of interest to those of us who are RCC watchers from the sociological and humourous points of view.

But it will make no difference to the cancerous decline in Irish Catholicis. The RCC has already lost most of the battles and indeed the entire war.

The new archbishop of Dublin will simply co-chair the handling of the fallout from RCC implosion alongside Her Grace of Armagh.

You fail me to recognise the close relationship between Tighe and Martin. They share an apartment in Rome. They also holiday together too.

Do not rule out Kevin Doran if Rome wants a safe pair of hands or Gareth Byrne a Priest of the Archdiocese of Dublin for a more Pastoral approach. My first choice would be Leahy of Limerick. I do not wish for Tighe or Doran or Phonsie. That would be a disaster. Ciaran o carrol will not get it and would only get Auxillary if Tighe got AB. It would be great to see one of the Dublin Priests get it but who of the Priests of Dublin would be in the running ?

You are absolutely right.

A high, ultramontane hand (popes) should not be allowed to choose bishops and archbishops.

This is another instance (and a particularly stupefying one) of clericalism, and of distrust of the laity, the very people Romanist parasites-cum-moochers insist, through Canon Law, pay them financial support.

Ignore the post at 13.42. Likely from one of the parasites-cum-moochers.

If Congregstionalism is right, then it is right. Justice is justice and right is right, regardless of how one labels them in denominational terms.

Having the marker, ‘Catholic’, does not necessarily make a practice right.

Did Jesus appoint any of today’s bishops?

If your criterion for valid choice of episcopal candidate is Jesus’ incarnate voice in the matter, then none of the current, or past, clutch of bishops had authority from Christ.

In the absence of the incarnate Christ, it is the local churches who must decide such matters; this is true synodality, since it does not reduce the Body of Christ locally to outsiders.

Most ‘overseers’ in the early church centuries were elected. In the time of Benedict XV (1914-1922) the Vatican appointed fewer than one-sixth of the world’s bishops.

DM is on record for saying he is staying in Dublin but will not interfere in the workings of the Archdiocese so he is not going to Rome.

Leo Cushley did not want Edinburgh and desperate to get back to Rome.

Paul Tighe will go where he is told and if Pope Francis thinks he is a careerist he will be sent to Dublin.

Cardinal Sarah and cardinal Ouelett are 76 maybe Paul Tighe has his eye on one of these posts.

Normally you are an Auxiliary or Bishop to get Archbishop’s position (unless you are a coadjutor)

So I would guess Paul Tighe and Bishop Leahy are front runners.

O’ Carroll and Pat O’Donoghue Director of Liturgy think they maybe the Auxiliary posts.

Rome has the names and doing the due diligence.

I don’t know about Mgr Jim Overton, but CMOC was very supportive of the LGBT Masses at Warwick Street. Nursie, now at Birmingham, was charged with supervision, and Vincent himself went out of his way to defend them when translated to Westminster – until they became an impediment to his red hat, when of course he ditched them. Given that the Assumption was one of those “safe places” for Catholics in London during penal times – though it was attacked during the Gordon Riots – I thought it insulting both on account of the gays and on faithful Catholics of the past to hand the place over to that awful man Newton and the Fraudinariate. What Elsie really thinks is anyone’s guess, though I doubt principles come into the equation..
