SCOTTISH DAISY CHAIN – OPEN LETTER TO THE SCOTTISH BISHOPS – FATHER STEPHEN DUNN.

from Catholic Truth Scotland

https://catholictruthscotland.com/2022/07/06/glasgow-priest-open-letter-regarding-state-of-the-church-in-scotland-souls-are-being-endangered/

Archdiocese of Glasgow,

Scotland.

Dear fellow Catholics in Scotland,

Truth: What is it?  Where should we Catholics place it in our daily lives?

For the good of our souls, and our eternal destination, we need to ask ourselves this key question in these traumatic, frightening times.

Jesus answered “It is you who say that I am a King. I was born for this, I came into the world for this, to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to my voice.”  “Truth? said Pilate. What is that?” The chief priests and the scribes hated and crucified Christ because He brought, and made known the Truth.

There have been many frightening things happening in our world which endanger the eternal future of our souls.  Hence, I feel moved to write this letter.

To outline:

I intend to address priests, myself included, to consider the meaning of Christ’s priesthood and what it should mean to us.
Actions of both priests and then of Pope Francis and of bishops both in Scotland and the World which are contrary to our priesthood.
I shall address events recently in Scotland and the UK, as well as the events in the world which we should fear, because they could result in my soul, your soul being lost;  Our Lady of Fatima showed the 3 children of Fatima that any one of us could end up being a soul suffering in Hell for all eternity.
Let me start by addressing one grave, grave lie told by Priests, Bishops, Cardinals . . .

“There is no Hell. That is rubbish those priests and people are frightening you with about Hell.  God loves us all; we are all going to heaven.”  Absolute rubbish! Satanic deceit!

St John Chrysostom, Bishop and one of the 36 Doctors of our Catholic Church said

“The road to Hell is paved with the bones of priests and monks, and the skulls of bishops are the lamp posts that light the path.”

St. Athanasius, another Doctor of the Church goes further than Chrysostom by saying, “The floor to hell is paved with the skulls of priests.”        

            St Teresa of Avila
St Teresa of Avila, also a Doctor of the Church warns us “Remember dear Christian, you have but one soul to save, one God to serve, one Eternity to expect, Death will come soon, Judgement will follow, and then Heaven or Hell forever”  

These are all Doctors of the Church people whose teaching and example are held in high esteem by the Church which is why they are given the title of Doctor of the Church, and there are only 36 of them, so the Church does not hand this title out willy-nilly!

Why is it that so many of we priests deceive, continually, lie to our flocks about Hell and Damnation? Christ tells us very clearly of its existence in the Gospel – “the chaff will he will burn on a fire that never goes out” Parable of rich man and Lazarus – “it is not possible for anyone to cross over”; and yet I recently heard to my amazement one such priest/bishop claim that “there is no hell; someone would have come back by now to tell us.” So was Jesus lying in that parable?

Brothers, for the good of your souls, and the souls of the sheep whom you and I will be called to give account for on the day of Judgement, should ask yourselves “Would Jesus have lied to us? He who died on the Cross for our sins and the salvation of our souls?  And forget not what the Father said at the Transfiguration, “This is my Son, the Beloved, listen to him.”

Regarding the little children: “Anyone who would do any harm to the least of these little ones, would be better cast into the sea with a great millstone round his neck.” If the actions of we priests are endangering the little ones, Christ will be there at the right hand of the Father at our Judgement to confirm these great evils committed by us. I fear the Father’s wrath.

The Queen of Heaven, Our Lady of Fatima, did not lie to the three children of Fatima when showing them the vision of souls suffering, for all eternity in Hell.  Please, accept and realise this Truth, for the good of your soul and the well being of the souls entrusted to your care.

Priesthood: As Catholic Priests what is our priesthood? What should we be seeking to do through it?

As we address this question let us remember John the Baptist’s actions, he who because of his behaviour pleased the Son of God so much to say “No greater man born of woman.” Are we similarly trying to please God in our priestly actions or is it the world we are more interested in pleasing?

Our Priesthood is that which we ask Jesus Christ to share with us on the day of our ordination, Christ’s priesthood, conferred on Christ by the Father, which we ask Jesus to share  as we go forward for priesthood. In that priesthood, which because of the Father’s wish, we re-enact the perfect sacrifice of Christ at the last supper and on Calvary for the sins of the mankind. Or do we?!  The offering made in complete obedience to, and love of the Father, and love of us, His brothers and sisters on earth, created in His image and likeness. It is that attempt to please the Father, that we as priests should be fervently trying to do, every time we celebrate the Mass.


Are priests and those studying for the priesthood who practice and support such sexual deviancies worthy of sharing Christ’s priesthood?  Are they fit to celebrate Christ’s Mass?

Bishops of the world, chief shepherds your duty is to serve Christ’s Church in Truth, nothing less. 

Pope Francis, Bishop of Rome, you have sold the Catholic Church in China for a yearly payment made to Vatican Bank, to the Chinese Communist party to appoint its bishops, (a deal you did through Cardinal McCarrick who advocated and freely practiced sodomy and such devious sexual practices) just like Judas Iscariot sold Christ to the chief priests.

Francis, you favourably meet with Nancy Pelosi and Joe Bidden who advocate abortion up to 9 months, who I state without doubt, whilst they continue to advocate this grave evil, are false Catholics, Judas Iscariots. Francis, you say that it they should freely and without any fear receive the most Holy Eucharist, whilst they support and stand for such abortion. “For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh his own damnation, because he discerneth not the Lord’s body.” You, Francis say they should do it when the Lord’s chosen apostle to the gentiles, St Paul, says to the contrary.  Francis you have no authority, I repeat, no authority, Pope or not, to contradict what God has given to His flock through the Sacred Scriptures of St Paul.  You are advocating the will of Satan and the world, which continuously fights against the will of God.

You have met with those who advocate, sodomy, one of the sins crying to heaven for vengeance, those who are for transgenderism, something that accuses God of mis-creating us. You say that the Church has to change, and accept people who openly advocate and practise similar grave sexual practices, evils of Satan.  Absolutely not!  The Church, is the Church of Jesus Christ, God the Son, founded as he told us on St Peter profession of faith of who Jesus is, something the Church celebrated a couple of days ago, 29 June. You are advocating evil solutions to the Lord’s flock, and thus I seriously fear for your soul.

You have nominated a priest, Arthur Roche to lead the Congregation for the Faith, and suppress and eliminate the celebration of the Traditional Mass which many of the great saints, doctors, martyrs celebrated. Francis, I say directly to you, this is not action of God, but is of Satan, who is trying to suppress the true celebration of the Most Holy Mass.

You are suggesting that God, though the Second Vatican Council wished to suppress and eliminate the Traditional Latin Mass and this is nothing less than deceit, just like Satan deceived Adam and Eve.  Please Francis, turn from this evil, from the deceits of Satan, return to the True Church, that of Jesus Christ, and as Christ says, “There will be more rejoicing in Heaven over the repentant sinner than ninety-nine good men.”

carrying out actions clearly not of God.

Bishop Joseph Toal: by ordaining Christopher Morris whilst he allegedly continues to engage in the gay lifestyle, something made very clear to you by numerous priests in the Diocese of Motherwell, you betrayed Christ’s priesthood. You cast the great pearl (priesthood) of the Church before swine to be trodden. Wicked!

Bishop Joseph Toal: I say to your face, re–instate Fr Mathew Despard now to his full duties as a priest for the people of Motherwell diocese.  You had no right to remove him and suspend him for showing the priesthood in crisis in Motherwell, information since shown to be true. By suppressing such Truth you were doing the work of Satan, and by continuing to fail to re-instate Fr Despard, Bishop Toal, you suppress the Truth – you are thus doing the work of Satan.

Archbishop William Nolan: by your actions in stopping the people of Fr Despard’s parish praying for him in the church (when you were an assistant priest there), telling them to get out of Christ’s Church, you deprived the sheep of acting in a humble, reverent and loving way on behalf of their much-loved shepherd, Fr Despard. Your action was that of a ravenous wolf disguised as a shepherd.  I would urge you to apologise now in full to Fr Despard, asking him to forgive you for such grave injustice.

Bishop John Keenan: you have a duty, not a choice, to cleanse the Lord’s threshing floor of the evil that has entered your diocese – for example, those advocating grave sexual misconduct and showing it on public websites – read about the seminarian, Paul Laverty. By failing to remove this person from seminary, you are betraying Christ and endangering souls. Thus, Bishop, you will be judged most harshly.

To bishops who support and are obedient to Francis, who clearly is serving the world, not Christ – the same harsh judgment awaits each of you.

This letter has been written with good intentions, and I trust that it is read by all concerned in a spirit of charity.  Please pray for me.  Thank you.

God Bless you all.        
Fr Stephen Dunn

What evidence is there that anything Despard says has since been shown to be true? This entire article is the ramblings of a priest without appointment living off the backs of people in a grace and favour apartheid who gives nothing in return. In any other organisation he’d have sunk without trace but we Catholics have to keep him.

I know from my own experience that much of what Despard was saying is true. I won’t go in to the details, but he was spot on about a number of places, people, priests and incidents. I saw it for myself, so I can vouch for what he is saying. Now, maybe there are other issues that got him on the wrong side of his bishop and led to his current exile. But, much of what he wrote in his book and his characterisation of the bullying, homosexual clerical culture is correct.

Stephen let us be honest and pray that Archbishop Nolan impliments Pope Francis Motu Proprio today and Removes you (this will be the 3rd Archbishop) and Mark Morris from diocesan property.
I totally agree that the Archbishop and Bishops should adress the daisy chain and more sad that some of them hold positions in the Curia’s with no blushes.
The odrinations of certain semanarians should not have taken place and others should not including Paul.

Stephen you have been c/o diocesan offices for years and you have taken an oppertunity to go back to the Sacred Hear during the Sede vacante and Paul Conroy leaving and due to weak leadership of Archbishop Nolan you have not been removed you are on NO diocesan appointment.

The people contacted both Arrchbishops and it was really only Archbishop Philip that took swift action the people of Sacred Heart had been to hell and back because of YOU and it was extremely sad.

You will never be back in the Archdiocese as a Priest just like your friend Matthew will not be back in Motherwell so it is time to move on and by the way Archbishop Nolan was Vicar General and not an assistant Priest.

Cardinal Elect Arthur Roche will be a great asset to the Dicastery of Divine Worship and Disipline of the Sacrements.

I understand that your letter was to the CTS and not to the Bishops as they await it.

Carole,
The man in question, one of the nicest you could meet, actually lived just yards from Ger’s home. The poor man has since died. He and Ger were literally neighbours and friends. Even if GF had a gay experience he wouldnt be the first straight man to do so. I highly doubt he is actually gay. Your COI source is likely badly informed and their only exposure to GF would be to see him at Sunday service with a gay man. It doesnt make him gay.

Fr Mulhall, clearly you are addicted to Corpus Christi webcam 😁 That webcam sustained me throughout the lockdowns. Fr Paddy’s amazing sermons kept hope alive in me.
Interesting that you closed down the Holy Trinity one, when you “took control” of the parish you don’t even live in and Fr Paddy often gets called to do your sick calls, when you can’t be found.
Fr Paddy doesn’t “rant”. He speaks truth with love, fervour and compassion.
It’s interesting Fr Mulhall that you are snooping on Corpus Christi webcam and the beloved PP.
Maybe his messages will convert you from your “lifestyle” and you will become a true priest like our Fr Paddy.
There is no priest more real than him. His parishioners don’t need to “ring around” when there is a death or tragedy in the parish, the way Turf Lodge parishioners do, because you are living with your bf.
And they ring Fr Paddy because they know and love him. He was a curate in our parish. Did not one of the Holy Trinity parishioners recently say to your face, “nobody around here likes you”?
No one in the Murph would say that about wee Paddy – except those who support baby butchering – and can’t separate themselves from Sinn Shame. And there are plenty of Shinners too who love him and respect his position.
You are a sick joke, a so-called fellow “priest”, sniping at a dearly loved priest in our community, anonymously, on a blog, who, unlike you, is 100 per cent available day and night.
Everyone knows you are behind these lying comments on Bishop Buckley blog. The dogs on the streets, of Murph and Turf, know all about you and you have been very free with your abusive comments about Fr Paddy McCafferty, to several people, which had spread around the communities of Turf and Murph.
So, as we say around here, catch yerself on and get a grip. Stop your malice and jealousy against a good priest who is loved and respected. Take a few leaves out of his book and maybe redeem yourself? After all you were/are a “redemptionist”?

STEPHEN DUNN
Firstly, I know Stephen Dunn. He is known by many as Dancer.I grew up in the same parish on the Southside of Glasgow as Stephen.
His late father was a GP and a very good and dedicated doctor he was. He was an ultra right wing Catholic who lived his faith even to the point of participating in the prayer group which stood outside hospitals where abortions were taking place. He was a devotee of the old style Latin Mass. in fact his funeral, which my family attended,was in the old form of mass.
It was from that background that Stephen came. There were numerous priests and bishops in his extended family down the generations.
Stephen is also very right wing, eccentric and truth be told a bit unhinged. That does not make him a bad person. He lives in a bubble and is not attuned to the sensitivities of those who don’t share his sincerity held beliefs.
NONE OF THOSE THINGS MAKE HIM A LIAR!!
In fact family members with more contact with clergy than me have told me that most of what he says is true and that this diocese, Glasgow, is a cesspit.
I have written this simply because I can see that Stephen’s eccentricity is being used against him to try and “cancel” him when really he has balls and courage to call out the RCC in the West of Scotland for what it is while other clergy mock him and don’t even have the courage of their convictions to stand up and be counted.
We all know the Daisy Chain and it’s members. Lying hypocrites all. Your days of kidding people on are fast coming to an end.
While I don’t share Stephen Dunn’s opinions I do admire his courage.

This is a powerful letter, from the heart. Some details, some aspects lack charity (altho if ‘sodomy’ is taken as criminal or socially deviant sexual acts, well there’s no end to that in the priesthood); moreover Fatima can become a weird parallel religion (which is why a few a wary of this private devotion); but the corrupt McCarrick deal; the rather factual point that Sacrosanctum Concilium only directed some changes to the Mass (which happened for a few years) not a wholesale abolition of what was, and most relevantly that network of moral nihilism, the Daisy Chain, means +Pat did well to publish it.

Let us step aside from the content of Dunns letter to the shape of his life. He has been without a canonical appointment for years, removed under a serious safeguarding issue and unresolved by an intense intervention.

He goes unchecked in his supply and ministry, living in grace and favour while maintaining a toxic vocal contact with CTS. Glasgow Archidiocesan Curia – your credibility is compromised. He may think he has pulled a fast one in this open letter – but this is now the catalyst to address (t)his issue …. before it explodes ……!

Fr Stephen Dunn caused so much damage to
Sacred Heart parish in his time there that it has never recovered. From throwing himself violently on the floor of the sanctuary, to the horror of the poor parishioners and then jumping up claiming he had not skin cancer but “sin cancer” and Jesus was the cure to charging parishioners for funerals, publicly naming unmarried mothers as prostitutes and “cows” to shouting at the top of his voice to some old ladies who happened to talk to their neighbours even quietly and respectfully after mass. As one of his Archbishop’s commented before appealing to him to change his ways before eventually sending him for a sabbatical “until he loves the people in his charge he will never be the shepherd his people need and deserve”. The final straw was of course allegedly assaulting school children in the church at first Friday masses. Just ask the headteacher or parents of the
Children who were persuaded not to go to the police. Whilst I am sure there may be problems in the church in Glasgow Stephen Dunn is definitely one of the problems and most certainly not the solution. Finally, would Fr Dunn like to explain his motor accident and boasting of not knowing how many children he has to anyone who wanted to listen to him in the bars of Donegal! – something I think he needs to answer. Please Archbishop Nolan remove this priest from our parishes before he causes any more pain and hurt to so many. Don’t be fooled by him Bishop Pat.
