There was a time when many bishoos were chosen for their piety or their theological learnedness.
Many of these men were great scholars of philosophy, theology and Scripture.
And even parish priests in the past were men of classical learning.
There has been a huge drop in the intellectual capacity of priests and seminarians in the past number of years are certainly not coming from the ranks of the clever and learned.
This shows itself in the quality of today’s bishops.
People like Deenihan are often chosen for their pugnacious and ability to fundraise.
Bishops were traditionally pastors. These days they are desk men, managers and money counters.
When he leaves Deenihan will leave Meath financially richer than when he came.
And that is all that seems to matter these days.
PHONSIE MAKES CHANGES, INFURIATES PRIESTS AND FLEES TO MEDJUGORE TILL DUST SETTLES.
MESSAGES FROM WATERFORD PRIEST
“Big diocesan changes.
Lots of angry priests.
Phonsie gone to Medjugorje hoping the dust will settle”.
Why are the priests angry?
“He ousted one!!”
He told one that he was going to Killea and did a u turn and still hasn’t told him officially
CHANGES I’VE SEEN TO DATE
Fr. Jim Denmead PE to Touraneena
Fr. Pat Gear PP to be Co PP in Sts Josephs & Benildus (city).
Fr. Brian Power PP to Kilsheelan
Fr. Martin Keogh PP to Cappoquin
Fr. Garret Desmond PP Newton/Kill
Fr. PJ Breen to KILLEA/CROOKE/PASSAGE EAST
As I have seen personally, Phonsie is capable of angry outbursts.
As the case of Father Richard Geoghegan shows, Phonsie is capable of treating his priests with massive arrogance and cruelty.
He seems have thrown the clerical changes handgrenade on his way out the door to Medjugorje.
He seems to have headed for the 2022 youth festival there:
Then I think that The Fonz in heading to the Youth 2000 Youth Festival in Clongowes Wood in Kildare
We know Phonsie is associated with Opus Dei – if not actually a member.
Opus Dei and other Catholic cults are interested in attracting young people between the ages of 16 and 35 and brainwashing them.
Phonsie appears to be interested in winning young people over to the RCC.
He goes to youth festivals, has young people Iivinh in his home and has founded a youth community in Clonmel.
If I was a parent I would be very worried if my children came under the influence of Phonsie Cullinan and his ilk.
I think Phonsie is a major league proselytiser and indoctrinator!
That worries me to the core.
