KILLALOE, MONAHAN, PREGNANT PRIESTS AND WOUNDED SEMINARIANS.

The Jerry Carey conviction and scandal this week gave us a brief look at the dark underbelly of the Diocese of Killaloe currently being “ruled” by Fintan “Lugs” Monahan.

This weekend many of Killaloe’s clergy are further disheartened by the mess that Monahan made of the Carey case and are throwing their hands up in disbelief and frustration at Monahan’s incompetence and stupidity.

One of those clergy informed the Blog that Monahan was informed of Carey’s crime by a third party within days of it happening?

If so, Carey should have been stood aside IMMEDIATELY from both parish and Colaiste Muire and gave been designated c/o bishops house.

The move to Nenagh and the adoption of the “Mr” title, was to my mind, an effort by Lugs, Carey and solicitors to fly below the radar in the hope that Carey could walk back into parish and school with reputation intact.

That plan failed as a result of the principled Killaloo priest calling me and my publication of a strong blog.

I believe that Lugs tried it on and failed abysmally and now looks like the Tosser he is by nature.

Will he face the people of Jerry Carey’s parish – even by internet and tell them what happened?

Will Colaiste Muire write to the parents telling them what happened?

They tell there are other serious secrets in the Killaloe cupboard:

– the serious hurting of two seminarians who were paid off?

– a woman made pregnant by a priest – a pregnancy that ended with an English abortion paid for by the priest – in spite of Monahan’s words?

And what else?

I have little doubt that Monahan is an incompetent twat. To be honest, my experience is that by and large most clergy and bishops are given responsibility for things that they have little or no ability to carry out, both because of their lacking the qualities to do so, and because they are not trained properly and professionally to do those things. The result is them stumbling from one incompetent and failed decision to another. In days past, they could get away with this because of the myth of their ontological difference and elevated status, because people believed in the innate goodness of the Church, and because they could waffle their way through it because of our misplaced deference. No longer, and we now can see what a bunch of incompetents they are. You only need to look at the way your parish priest runs your parish to know that, by and large, they are functionally incompetent and not fit for purpose. I note that recently a COO of a diocese has resigned, after only three years in post. I know something of this man, who has highly successful business experience in his CV, and wanted to be of service to his Church. I believe that after three years he has pulled up stumps in frustration, recognising that the sensible and sane management that he could see the Church here needed was simply not being taken seriously. He has wasn’t being taken seriously. Why ? Because he’s not a priest with all that ontological, sacramental instant wisdom nonsense that the ordained believe they have ! Monahan is not the only cleric out of his depth, and not the only cleric who leaves a trail of destruction and failure in his path. And if Monahan did know about Carey and his antics earlier than he is saying and did nothing, then he will have contravened pretty much every accepted responsible norm of safeguarding and responsibility. If that is the case, he should go !

9.24: I think you are over using the concept of “ontological” change in explaining why it is that some clerics are not good at administration, delegating or engage with full consultation with parishioners. It is of course wrong to deliberately block out people who are very gifted, talented, competent and creative in our parishes. St. Paul’s letter about the many different gifts and my fervent belief in the dignity and giftedness of all baptised people has guided my approach to ministry. I am annoyed by clergy who fail to recognise the many gifted people in parish communities. Now more than ever we MUST reaffirm the dignity of all people and allow parishioners own their parishes. Yes, we priests have a unique spiritual and pastoral role, one which gives us the opportunity to animate people gathered around the Eucharist. I have never been bothered by words like “ontological”…It is not easy to have to continually readjust your vision, theology and ministry in the present climate of society. However, it is an absolute imperative that we priests always ensure the building up of the local Christian community, not alone (doomed for failure), but with acknowledging the gifted, prayerful, creative and competent people among us. I also believe in delegating res of administration and finances to those who have a business background. We gave of course to be wuse and discerning as often there are personality clashes and some people can own their given roles too much to the detriment of unity, goodwill and harmony. God help us all these days….

But, Father, I bet you remain ‘in charge’ and you have the final say, even though you know little about the things over which you have been given authority. When push comes to shove, no matter how enabling of the laity you are, you will have the final say. Why ? What gives you the right to be in that position ? Ordination, the bishop, and everything to do with the clerical state and culture. That can’t be right. Surely ? If you are serious about the Church being of the People of God, then give them room to move and flourish, including the ministerial priesthood and positions of decision making and authority – and I include married men, women, and a whole diversity of people who have equal standing in God’s eyes.

12.44: Sorry to burst your prejudiced and biased bubble narrative. I was a secondary school teacher before I was a priest: perhaps that helped shape my ministry approach. I have plenty of experience in administration. No, I do not have the first of the last word on any decision. We discuss all issues together as a Pastoral Parish Council and Finance Committee. I see my role – YES – my role as animator, initiator and encourager. Tigether we work for the common good. I know what my pastoral appointment means. I take my responsibilities seriously. Our parish under my care is as inclusive as is possible. Your cynicism, born out of misinformation and predictable narratives, loved by haters, will not deter me in any way from doing what I’ve outlined.

So I hope Bishop Pat prints this and it is in NO defence of any Bishop.
Bishops are so adrift from most parishes they do not have a clue and really Priest in2021 should not be running parishes that is what parish and diocesan councils are set up to do so maybe it is a control freak of a priest in most parishes.
Every dioceses has a Council of Priests so why are the Clergy not speaking out aww they are frightened well surely in Killaloe with around 98 clergy they are not all afraid and they all know there is also Archbishop Okolo.
So to the clergy on this blog continue to inform the blog but you should say to your Brother I am going to inform the Bishop and if not the papal Nuncio.
This full situation of Carey is shocking and was getting swept under the radar and Carey returning and in April Bishop Fintan going to Tuam.
You maybe shocked to know some clergy do not even know what is going on in the next deanery never mind the dioceses.

Gibbins has been noted by the nuncio but, as yet, is not on the list for the next round of episcopal appointments. You mention Doran continually and we know not why. Do you have a shred of evidence to support what you have said about him? The answer is surely, ‘No’, rendering your comment to be of little or no value.

Like

The reason Doran is being mentioned is due to proposed diocesan amalgamations in the west. This would see the archdiocese of Tuam & Kilalla, diocese of Galway, Kilmacduagh & Clonfert and finally the diocese of Elphin & Achonry. Effectively reducing six to three. With Fleming, Kelly & Neary retiring in the next 18 months, this will become a reality. Doran will succeed Neary on two grounds, firstly he is the oldest suffragan Bishop and would serve 6-7 years and this is required after Neary’s quarter of a century in the role. Secondly this would be a short appointment to allow for younger bishops like Monahan, Dempsey and Duignan to be assessed for suitability. Remember if Doran was appointed he would also be retiring the same time as O’Reilly and this would mean two metropolitan gigs up for grabs.

Correct procedure is Jerry to be suspended on full pay pending investigation. Jerry entitled to confidentiality until investigation completed. Courts take precedence over investigation by Lugs or Dept of Ed. Jerry found guilty by court, no longer has Garda clearance gone from school and any dealings with vulnerable adults or children. If Lugs thought this was going under the radar he was mistaken, no way Jerry was getting Garda clearance which has to be renewed every two years. Does Lugs even know this?

Mmmm ? Nursey’s words about Brookes don’t sound effusive, do they ? I’d say Brookes probably did suggest a plan for the future, but Nursey and his clerical apparatchiks probably wouldn’t implement it, so in frustration and disappointment he’s gone. Clergy don’t like being told what they should do. They like telling other people what to do. I reckon the Archdiocese of Birmingham doesn’t really have much of a plan for anything. They just bumble along, muttering a few pious buzz words like evangelisation, mission, etc., but really have not much of a clue as to how they will do it or achieve it. They simply do not realise that their inaction and their blindness to what is happening around them results in people just drifting away. Over the last couple of decades this has been made up for by newcomers from abroad, so the pew have been somewhat filled. But, as time goes on that flow, both of laity and clergy, will cease, and they too will get fed up with their idiot priests and bishops and move off. The writing is on the wall for the RC Church in Ireland and the UK. So, I would suggest to Longley and others that they think seriously about what they are going to do, to think of a plan that is implementable and sensible, and drop all the pious guff which is really an excuse for doing nothing. I suspect, however, that all of this stuff just goes in to the “too difficult” folder on his desk !
