Word on the Clerical Street says that Farrell of Dublin has come to a settlement with an insurer for what is termed “A CONSEQUENTIAL CLAIM” because of loss of church income due to Covid
Apparently all 26 dioceses have sued an insurer with DLF being the bare knuckle negotiator?
A source told the Blog: “Dermot has signed off for a one year pay out and a year two will then be claimed. Dublin will get millions. All 26 dioceses are in for big claims. The money will go to dioceses and will then be passed on to parishes – that’s if Dermot, being the money man he is, passes it on”.
Apparently, dioceses have hired the services of another insurance supremo to fight their case.
ANOTHER DLF FINANCE SCHEME:
DLF is not a pastor. He is an operator. He is an EMS – an Ecclesiastical Mover and Shaker.
He is also a company man and a man who puts the RCC Mafia before all else.
Rare bishops desire to leave their diocese spiritually better after their reign.
DLF wants to leave Dublin and other diocese in the black after his “rain”.
There are all kinds of reasons why the RCC is in decline.
But one of the principal reasons is that the RCC’s clergy are wolves in shepherd’s clothing.
Pope Francis says the liturgical reforms of the Second Vatican Council are being resisted by groups with “closed mindsets” who call into question the authority of bishops to preserve the Church’s tradition.
Francis’ remarks, made during a speech to a group from the Pontifical Liturgical Institute of Sant’Anselmo in Rome, can be read as a defence of his decision to issue restrictions on the use of the pre-Vatican II liturgy. The Pope also hit back at those creating divisions over the liturgy saying they were doing the devil’s work.
Traditionis Custodes (Guardians of the Tradition), issued in July 2021, handed authority to local bishops to oversee celebrations of the Traditional Latin Mass and overturned Benedict XVI’s 2007 ruling which had made it much easier for priests to celebrate the Old Rite. But many of those attached to the pre-Vatican II Mass have responded to Traditionis Custodes with furious hostility and resistance.
“Closed mindsets use liturgical schemes to defend their own point of view,” the Pope said during his address. “This is the drama we are experiencing in ecclesial groups that are distancing themselves from the Church, questioning the Council, the authority of the bishops…to preserve tradition. And the liturgy is used for this.”
When he issued his restrictions on the Old Rite, Francis said he was seeking to preserve the unity of the Church, saying that support for the pre-Vatican liturgy often includes “a rejection not only of the liturgical reform, but of the Vatican Council II itself, claiming, with unfounded and unsustainable assertions”. An ecumenical council is the highest form of legislation in the Church and at Vatican an overwhelming majority of bishops voted to reform the liturgy.
I am not a particular fan of Pope Francis. I cannot make up my mind about him.
But he was elected by the College of Cardinals.
And of course there was “politics”. There always is.
I don’t believe that the Holy Spirit plays any role in papal elections.
The Holy Spirit does not involve him/ her self in evil matters.
But Francis IS the RCC pope.
And the Second Vatican Council is as legitimate a General Council as there ever has been.
Right wing RC people, hankering after the Latin Mass is rather like the Amish preferring to use horses for transport instead of cars.
The horse and cart is quaint and romantic. But out of date.
I am not part of the RC anymore.
But how can you claim to be a faithful and loyal RC and refuse to accept the pope and a General Council?
Is that not the road to schism?
