DICK GIBBONS THINKS KNOCK IS SECRET WEAPON TO TURN THE IRISH BACK INTO CATHBOTS 😁

“Knock is a miracle that keeps giving. In just three years, this small shrine on the periphery of Europe has raised a whopping €13.4m in donations and pledges to finance a much-needed structural and spiritual revamp. Some €11.4m has been used to refurbish the 40-year-old basilica which had become dated and worn”.

(Sarah Mcdonald – Irish Independent)

Dick Gibbons is the RCC PP of Knock and the general manager of “Knock Casino”.

In the video above Dick gives us an insight into the way he thinks:

The two referenda – same sex marriage and abortion – represent Ireland turning down a bad, non Catholic road.

Knock is the primary Defender of The Faith of Our Fathers.

Irish RCC resurgence will come from Knock with Mary being the new Queen Maeve.

Knock will defeat the referenda heretics and schismatics.

Saint Dick himself, like Louis Marie De Montfort before him, is Mary’s 21 st century social and spiritual warrior.

The 13.5 million raised by Dick is part of raising up the new Blue Army of which he is the 4 starred General.

Its weapons of Mass reconstruction will be Novenas, missile like candles, extra powerful holy water from Mayo bogs, jet arrivals into Horan by bishops, cardinals and popes and all the Marian weaponry, primed and hidden in underground basilicas.

The Holy Water Hens will continue to fund the war with Mass Offerings, Novena Enrolments, the purchase of pictures of Frank and the appropriate clauses in wills.

The Ireland of Garrett Firzgerald, Enda Kenny (the local heretic) and Lovely Leo will be crushed under General Dick’s stirrups and Mary’s heel.

John Charles McQuaid and Eamon Devalera will rise from their tombs to reinstall the 1937 Constitution.

Noel Brown’s corpse will be uninterred and strapped to a Legion of Mary banner and displayed at the 15th Station.

And Ireland will return to the holy, pure, chaste, child loving, Magdalen loving place it was from 1923 until 1970.

The Christian Brothers will be flooded with new meat eating members from the Kerry and Mayo mountains.

Kilnacrott Abbey in Cavan will reopen as the National Shrine of Saint Maria Goretti for youth.

The Kremlin will announce that Annie and Peter Murphy were Russian propaganda inventions and Eamon Casey will be the patron Saint of Catholic orphanages country wide.

Mary will reveal that Michael Cleary’s kids with his housekeeper were immaculate conceptions.

Dick will be made Bishop of Galway and later succeed Kevin Doran as archbishop of Dublin.

Dick will sell archbishop’s house to the GAA for 300 million and pay off DM’s air flight bills with interest.

Sean Brady’s Dundalk interviewees will be made Papal Counts and publicly forgive Brady on Paddy Reilly’s Bridge in Ballyjamesduff.

Amy Martin will elope with the Armagh child safety officer Gay Gordon and have a same sex marriage in the former Loreto Chapel in Dublin presided over by humanist solemniser Ryan Tubridy with Mary McAleese and John Waters as witnesses.

And they will all live happy ever after…NOT!

CARDINAL GIBBONS

Cardinal Gibbons once told a very shocked cleric that he didn’t believe the pope was infallible.

“Why”? the shocked cleric asked.

“Because every time he meets me he says Hello Cardinal Gibbins” said Gibbons.

Why does the Roman Church always refer to a cost as an ‘offering’? That is what is said here of lighting candles at Knock: ‘Suggested offering: €2’.

It is just a cute way of lying, because ‘offering’ implies that the money is voluntary, a donation, when in fact it is nothing of the sort.

It is also how priests speak of payment for Masses: an an ‘offering’.

Truth is that Romanists charge for God’s grace; they always have. It was in large part the cause of the Protestant Reformation.

I have just read this newsletter really carefully. I could have missed it, but amidst all the focus on a very legalistic approach to faith, nowhere did I read anything about the love and compassion of God. I kept thinking about those Jesus likened to “whitewashed sepulchres”. My Catholic truth and faith feels very different from the one expressed in this newsletter. I support absolutely the right to free speech and find myself in agreement with some of what is written about the possible cover-up over former Cardinal McCarrick. But if heaven is a place of legalistic self-righteousness, it’s not the place where, sinner that I am, I feel I will fit in.

We stayed in a mobile home for the duration. I use ‘duration’ deliberately, since it suggests how I spent the period: as an unmitigated endurance.
When I booked a home there, the catalogue said there were tvs provided, but actually none were…in the mobile homes themselves. There was just one tv on site for all the unhappy campers, in a dingy and damp room.
I couldn’t help but think the deception was quite deliberate: to keep people out of the homes to attend devotions, and to explore the holy kitch on sale in one or more of the shops on main street.
The place had the tawdry atmosphere of a downmarket…well, market.
Fond memories of Knock.

The pilgrim numbers are derived from the number of sacred hosts distributed. Fr Gibbons explained that to the papers. He said there is a complex mechanism for counting, the same as is used in Lourdes and Fatima. Penny-pinching so-called holidaymakers in tents and caravans with their thermos flasks and packed lunches are not part of the published pilgrim total.

All the priest’s and people that he spread slander and lies about, but, most of all, his predatory behaviour is swept under the carpet. I just pray he has reformed, but psychiatry and past patterns would suggest otherwise. He will cost Galway a lot of money yet. Does the Irish church ever learn? There will so many upset people in Galway today knowing he has got away with everything. Meanwhile, the Redemptorists are ecstatic they managed to dump their little problem on the Galway Diocese. On another note, the minister for setting up committees about committees, continues his relentless pastoral expansion in Galway City East. He is a nice guy, but somehow manages to get the diocese to do his bidding, even buying a former hotel in Doughiska to set up a church and community centre in. The wife said to me this evening, ‘he will end up like that lad in Belarus at this rate, the unelected pastoral dictator’.

Very humourous but a lot of accuracy also at 1:21pm. DM is not a holy, spiritual, pastoral man. He’s a bureaucrat and he was happy for years, swanning and mooching around Rome and Europe, as a fonctionaire of the Holy See.

That role suited him because he didn’t have to do anything much “spiritual” or “religious”. He didn’t have to say Mass all that often.

At the same time, he was dressed to the gills in the trappings of a Catholic prelate. As the saying goes, “get the name for rising early and you can lie all day”.

He was known as a Catholic prelate but, alas, like so many of them, faith and belief didn’t come into it. It was a “career”.

How he managed as a diplomat though is anyone’s guess for he is a very rude, ignorant and intolerant man.

There is a well known story about him that Dermot Ryan wanted him home from Rome to take up a parish appointment in Dublin in the 1970s. The young DM threw such a hissy fit and strop that he was allowed to stay in Rome and the rest is history.

His vocation, again like so many of his ilk, was not to serve in a parish. God didn’t call him to serve the parishioners of Dublin diocese but to rub shoulders with the inhabitants of an altogether more ratified atmosphere.

He doesn’t care about Dublin – hence his carelessness – and playing fast and loose – with the resources of the diocese. He doesn’t give a tuppence of a damn about the future of the church in Dublin.

Even his much vaunted “concern” for the abuse victims was from the teeth outwards. All part of the fraudulence and the putting on of the performance.

“Strange goings on” how are ya and “revolting truth” is right!
