IS BROTHER ELIJAH TRULY PORN AGAIN?

ELIJAH MARIA CARROLL

DELUDED AMY 😀

Now, who is going to tell me Amy is not a big “homo erectus”.

Dear Brother Elijah,

My blog post about my brother bishop Bishop Deenihan selling off some of the lands of the Diocese of Meath was the catalyst for a number of people to contact me about the fundraising efforts by Silverstream Priory. And they included a copy of the latest Newsletter from the Priory. It is such an interesting newsletter that I feel compelled to e-mail you with a number of questions that arose from a forensic reading of the Newsletter.

Having played a modest part in establishing the notoriety and unseemliness of Silverstream Priory, I offer my congratulations on the tenth anniversary of the arrival of the two founders of Silverstream Priory in Ireland, Dom Mark Kirby and the then Br Benedict Andersen. You also highlight this year is also the fifth anniversary of the canonical foundation of Silverstream. Do you know if Bishop Tom curses every day the decision-making of Bishop Smith with respect to Silverstream Priory or does he offer a Te Deum in thanksgiving?

In the photograph of the community embedded in the newsletter I am sure that eagle-eyed readers of my blog will note the absence of the original founders of the Priory: Dom Mark Kirby and Dom Benedict Andersen. It is hardly a glowing endorsement of the Priory that the two founders are not resident at the scandal-ridden Priory.

I am not surprised that the newsletter does not draw attention to the scandalous misconduct of Dom Kirby.

Of course, it would not be good for fundraising if the newsletter highlighted the on-going mistreatment of Dom Andersen by the community for calling out the misconduct of Dom Kirby. But this does not come as a surprise because the institutional Church has always taken a dim view of whistle-blowers. A more honest approach would have been to invite readers of the Silverstream Newsletter to read The Pillar article about Andersen. Would you care to refresh your memory about Dom Andersen by reading the article? If so, I enclose the link for your convenience.

Where is Dom Mark Kirby? Has he taken an authorised leave of absence from his foundation (because it was his vanity project), Silverstream Priory? Is the more pertinent question: had Dom Kirby become a source of scandal and an obstacle to your ambitions?


Where is Dom Kirby currently located? Is he resident in the Diocese of Meath? If not, where is he located? And is Dom Kirby resident in that location with the written permission of his Ordinary, Bishop Thomas Deenihan and with the consent of the local Ordinary of that location? Is Dom Kirby in receipt of a financial sustenance from Silverstream Priory? Is it true that when Dom Kirby left Silverstream Priory, two novices left with him? Are they deemed to have departed from the Priory or are Kirby’s helpers/chicks undertaking their canonical novitiate outside the Priory? Is there an anticipated date when the two novices will return to the Priory in order to make their profession of simple vows?

Why are members of the monastic community now lying to visitors about Dom Kirby? You would accept I trust that the deceit/dissimulation of members of the monastic community to people that enquire about Dom Kirby displays an institutional lack of honesty and transparency that is scandalous.

Where is Dom Benedict Andersen? Is he still in the United States? Is Dom Andersen in receipt of a financial sustenance from Silverstream Priory? Will Dom Andersen be returning to the Priory at any stage in the not-so-distant future? That is a legitimate question, because to the best of my knowledge and information the only priest within the community at the moment is Dom Hildebrand Houser? Is that correct?

Have you completed your studies for the priesthood? I know you were having lots of difficulties with the studies. Has my brother bishop, Tom Deenihan made any noises about ordaining you a deacon?

If so, have you assured him that your addiction to gay pornography is under control?

Would it be inappropriate of me to ask you have you received therapy for this addiction? It is, however, a legitimate question if you are going to be advanced to the clerical state in light of the scandals that has befallen the Church in Ireland over the past three decades. How do I know about your gay porn addiction? Because of the indiscretions of Dom Mark Kirby who was very indiscreet about the internal problems of the community to guests. And, the worst gossips are clerics and they are more than happy to get on the phone and share with the Bishop of Larne! Amen.

I do admire the entrepreneurialism of Silverstream Priory in having its own “publishing enterprise”. I note it has published a book on the life of a Benedictine nun and it is promising “more new releases over the coming months”.

Will “The Cenacle Press”, be publishing an updated version of In Sinu Jesu, containing more “revelations” from Dom Kirby? Will the updated version have a pious introduction from Bishop Deenihan? Readers of my blog are particularly keen to read the latest revelations from Dom Kirby so they can be edified and encouraged in their own spiritual struggles.

It is ironic that you highlight St Pope Paul VI in the Newsletter and his observations on the establishment of a new monastic foundation. If Bishop Deenihan renders a Decree ordering Silverstream Priory to celebrate the Divine Office in English and for the Eucharist to be celebrated in English utilising the New Rite (Mass of Paul VI/ Nova Ordo) will the community promptly and obediently comply with the Decree? Will Dom Hildebrand Houser find it within his heart to celebrate the New Rite in obedience to his Ordinary?

With prayerful best wishes,

+Pat Buckley

Brother Elijah is not the only person who may need to be BORN AGAIN. The ugly, personalised, sexualized and sleazy comments, some overtly pornographic, are a clear indication that many, many cohorts require conversion to the Lord. It’s clear that the monks are determined to stay together, hopefully being renewed within by God’s Spirit. It’s unfortunate that they had the dominance of Kirby in their initial foundation as a community. He seems to have been a delusional mystic, though convincing and his influence was detrimental. I pray for these monks that God will guide them spiritually and wisely into the future. There are concerns about this community but I do not believe that intruding into their lives so mean spiritedly, aggressively and nastily a manner will produce the appropriate fruits. Then again, I have to make daily decisions, pray hard and beg God for the grace of true conversion and have been doing so for 40 years or more! Living in God and doing what is right is a lifetimes task. God help us all this day – Corpus Christi – to be CHRIST towards one another and speak the truth with charity and mercy: It’s the inly approach that will bring us to Christ again and to new life.

PS I think in Pat’s seminary days discerning a vocation didn’t mean giving up your ass.

Like

4.06: Ask Pat for the definitive answer. The rest are purely guessing!!! Pat also had a calling to “priestly ordination”. For many priests today there is, unfortunately, a huge disillusionment, primary centred around the fall out from the sexual abuse crisis. This crisis is still reverberating in the lives of survivors. It might appear superfluous and counter productive to answer your question…

Like

Great insight 6:34.
The question is currently what kind of person would even consider a vocation in life which is synonymous in most minds with child abuse. I can think of a few possibilities and none of them is tasteful at all.
Interestingly following a few other abuse crises elsewhere people keep saying ‘Dont make the same dog’s dinner of it that Rome has’ which adds a further dimension that the ecclesial community is now notorious for mismanagement as well as abuse, crime, and financial corruption.
At this stage it is clear that the only possible candidates for a priestly vocation are the incredibly naive (who if they aren’t cleared out by the first night in seminary will be when their keks start vanishing) or criminals deviants and those with something to hide.
Because that’s what criminals and just general nasty pieces of work do – flock together.

The weaponizing of the crime of the sexual abuse of children by a person who was ejected from seminary as a means of expressing resentment towards the institutions is to be regretted.
In the first instance, it becomes obvious that the commenter cares nothing for victims. If he did, he’d be doing everything in his power to ensure the extirpation of this crime from society.
Secondly, the situation is further complicated by the existential context. The commenter’s venom is always directed against a group of people to which he once sought admission. Regrettably, he was himself abused by someone who was not part of that society. It’s the hermeneutical key which interprets his long series of comments here.
It’s clear that no healing can occur without the precise issues being directly addressed.

On the contrary, I contend that when you realise the “company” or “orgznisation” isn’t working, surely it’s an indication of the need for critical anysis and a redefining of mission, goals, ethos and vision and a re-evaluating of personnel. That’s what the Synodal Pathway focused on. It’s not that anyone present has failed but that our approach in proclaiming Christ and his gospel requires dedicated and renewed ways of presenting it for the 21st century. A particular form of being Church is dying. The task for us who still see the beauty of the Christian life and of the gospel of Christ is to seek even more to be salt of the earth and light of the world. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI made reference some years ago to “a remnant church”. I’d like to contribute to making the “remnant” meaningful and relevant. As for children, I don’t have any. But – as a family of 7 we were all brought up in the traditions of the Cathic faith and I value what has been given. All my family are church goers; almost all my nieces and nephews attend reasonably regularly. They are probably the last generation of my family that will have any meaningful connection with the Church.

I somehow don’t think St Patrick or St Colmcille convened workshops.

It’s not about replicating what Christians did in earlier centuries. That would be an insult to God’s speaking to us in and through history. It’s about bring to the 21st century the faith, hope and love they brought to theirs.

9.20 I’m not a bit jealous because I’ve no idea what you’ve been eating at your fancy priest & sheep dinner I’ve never heard let alone eaten any of them things but they sound expensive. Mind you, my friends & I won’t be paying for your indulgences either – it’s just handy to be able to show your nasty arrogant response to any eejits still filling your trough – they always shocked to see what you priests & volunteers are really like & what you really think of the “faithful”. No doubt you’ll be shitting like an aul clapped out racehorse after eating all that fancy muck. 🤣🤣🤣 🐎 🐎 🐎

Funny how a direct question of whether someone here is a priest never gets a direct answer.
If you ask someone if they’re a plumber, carpenter, barrister or doctor, you get a yes or no answer. Even on anonymous internet forums because they’re not identified.
The only people who won’t say what they are are criminals, Catholic priests and anyone else with something to hide from the authorities.. The similarity is striking.

I’m really enjoying the comments today, bishop. I’m particularly loving the cathbots tearing each other apart and thinking that that and more Latin and lace will make more people go to church.
Because obviously Mrs O’Donnell who still goes to mass is the problem here. 😂

Our Anglican sisters and brothers in Ireland could show us how to move forward on a synodal path. They are immersed in it at parish, diocesan and national (the island of Ireland) level for centuries.

7.46 Hasn’t done them much good, has it? The native Irish rejected them, even with the offer of soup, and they have more spiders than people in their stolen churches.

You should thank God for people like 7:19, 7:53. Without them you would never have the healthy experience of hearing anything you dislike and isn’t controlled by you. You will benefit from it.

“It is hardly a glowing endorsement of the Priory that the two founders are not resident at the scandal-ridden Priory.”
Agreed. It is not a glowing endorsement. It is absolutely disgraceful that Dom Benedict Andersen has not received his letter of good standing. Is there a fear because of Dom Benedict Andersen’s priestly faculties and his co-founding of the Priory, that he is the natural Prior in waiting?
May the lives of our wrongfully banished brethren be peaceful.
Pax.

LOL no. If he can’t get a letter out of the bishop he won’t appoint him and the brethren who have calumniated him wouldn’t elect him if they got as far as an election.
You didn’t think that through very sensibly did you, but then that’s par for the course.
When the monastery gets as far as an election for a conventual prior my money would be on Hildebrand. It is, after all, up to the Silverstream community, not random people on the internet 😂

Bishop Pat, I think I might have a vocation to be a priest. The only trouble is I’ve got a criminal record. Would that stop me getting ordained?

Like

No. I think you know this and want to start trouble. It of course depends on the nature of the crime. Dublin has had at least one seminarian who had a criminal past. They did not get ordained, sadly, and it was not due to their criminal convicitons.

It will more than likely be a very significant obstacle for you in most contexts. Even to get the benefit of the probation act it still shows up on garda vetting. If the offence was sexual then even if it is dealt with summarily (in the district court) it cannot be expunged from your record meaning the offence follows you for life. I don’t mean to be harsh but just honest. These are the cruel things we do to people in the name of justice.

11.33 life is about choices, victims get no choice before being selected & framed by their perpetrators & their supporters – justice is all victims can hope for assuming they haven’t been actually murdered by the offender. The extraordinary levels of informal support that RCC clerics & volunteers extend to criminals & their families is far greater than what they do for their victims or their families, no prizes for guessing why.

10.02 best ask Fr Jerry Carey c/o Killaloe Diocese for a first hand account on your current options. It would appear that you would find peers with mutual characteristics in the clerical & connected sphere. Let us know how you get on and best wishes with your rehabilitation.

Was attending Dalkey Book festival recently, some of what I listened to had another effect superfluous to the subjects discussed but there follows the consequence of them: I am more and more convinced that Bishop Pat Buckley provides an invaluable forum, the only one, to call the Catholic Church to heel in Ireland, some way to it anyway.

RCC priests = Sex, lies, deception, power and money. The majority of you make me want to hurl 🤮. Today is Fr. Ger’s ordination anniversary. Not much to celebrate is there? You wankers are all cut from the same cloth.
