THE RCC, CHINA, ABUSE AND THE SYNODAL PATH.

This headline may seem sensational, but the evidence is overwhelming.
 
The Catholic Church is experiencing a bewildering range of crises, some of them long-term and familiar, such as demographic collapse and the continuing scandal of sex abuse. Others are being manufactured by a Pope who is allowing a faction of Catholic boomers to push an incoherent ‘New Age’ agenda. Whether Francis truly supports their ideas is anyone’s guess – but he’s increasingly willing to spout their inanities.

PAT SAYS

IS MULLIE, MAD, BAD OR A MIXTURE OF BOTH?

Contrary to opinions expressed on this blog BILL MULVIHILL and I have not fallen out with each other.

Bill has fallen out with me.

He feel out with me purely because I carefully and kindly suggested to him that his mental health might need attention.

And I did not do this to hurt or annoy him in any way.

In the past I have suffered with panic attacks and anxiety and have voluntarily undergone counselling and psychotherapy.

I have also, at times in the past, been prescribed Diazapem.

So I am not some perfectly balanced emotional and anxiety free person pointing the finger at someone else. Although for many years now I have not suffered any anxiety at all.

But in recent days Bill has even using other people’s own personal life struggles against people who are fast becoming his ex friends.

He has brought up family suicides to people and attempted to blame them for the suicide.

He has brought up extremely private things people told them in complete confidence when he was a priest.

In a mocking way he has reminded people of times of distress and deep pain in their lives.

He has arranged to meet people for a simple coffee and morally forced them to pay for expensive meals, champagne, wine AND invited guest to those meals and make his unsuspecting and would be coffee companion pay for everything at the cost of hundreds of euros.

He has threatened to report people to their bosses for things that have nothing to do with their work.

He has even written to Leo Varadkar accusing him of sleeping with an infamous monk.

Bill is ill.

But he is not an egit.

Or, if he is, he is a clever egit!

People BEWARE !!!

Dear Bishop Patrick,
I attended Mass today in St Patrick’s Church Dungannon. It was a beautiful ceremony and as is the case there was a large contingent of East Timor community present, as they are very devout Catholics. Five minutes after the beginning of Mass, two little East Timor sisters joined the men at the back. They didn’t speak English but came to Mass and got their missalettes. To many onlookers’ dismay, a church steward approached the girls (who must not have been over 12) and said “The priest doesn’t want you at the back of the church – go up to the front and get a seat”.
Many thought this was awful. It is good to see young people in the church at all, who cares where they stand? And surely the church is God’s House, not the priest’s domain. From many of your published blogs of late it would seem that the Parish Priest of Dungannon would be better off getting his own two parochial houses in order. Don’t you agree?

@ 9:18pm
Are you for real? there was nothing wrong with the priest wanting those little girls to sit at the front where they would be able to see better and take part. Rather than standing at the back with the men where they’d see nothing. You are a nasty troublemaker, get a grip!🙄

Like

The only children to voluntarily go to Mass and they are told off about where they sit? Isn’t there a New Testament verse about people sitting at the back and Jesus doesn’t think they are a bad person. Making them go up the front to get a better view is clericalist and typical of seeing the new Mass as a show.

Like

Yes, agreed. Some people are quick to presume the worst. I like your take on it. For all we know, one of the men standing at the back MAY be risky among children and is having a discreet eye kept on him. We just don’t know the circumstances. Or it may have emanated from a desire to let the youngsters feel more included. Let’s not jump the gun on the priest’s motives. In our parish we have “welcomers” who are better placed to make such an invitation more subtly without drawing attention to individuals.

Pat, I am not so sure if it’s wise to devote another blog day/s to Bill as he seems too disturbed to absorb any good advice. He may be “cute” for now in manipulating others but that will soon end. Until Bill realises the reality of his weird and unacceptable behaviour and becomes friendless and isolated, he will continue this present pathway. It’s so sad but he is ignoring the good help offered to him. Undoubtedly he’s reading your blog and knows word is out about him. In his dysfunctional behaviour he is liable to be dangerous to those he now dislikes intensely. While we must not enable him by giving him money, we must also be careful about our opinions. We are each a mixture of good and bad, light and darkness, normal and abnormal and we each have our strange eccentricities but Bill is displaying destructive traits. We can only hope he weakens up to his need for professional help.

People need to stop enabling him by giving him money etc. If Bill doesn’t hit rock bottom he will never make it.
I feel that having another day of negative discussion and insulting him on the blog.isn’t going to encourage him..
Try and see past all his anger and hurt and encourage him to get the help that he badly needs..

10.33: You repeat this theory very frequently. You have absolutely no proof or clinical professionalism to corroborate this fallacy. Some priests who leave had long demonstrated their instability, psychologically and morally to live priesthood and upon leaving did not transform into demons like Bill. Many went on to make very valuable contributions in other areas of work. If you’ve studied psychology you would understand that distant traumas in our lives can haunt us in later years. It may take little to trigger memories or events which can cause inner turmoil. Unless we receive psychotherapy or counselling, a person can spiral into very self destruct behaviour. Bill was unhappy in ministry and seemed to use his new found freedom in a most destructive way. His departure may have resurrected past, unresolved issues – sexual identity, intimate relationships or the lack thereof, the challenge of being relevant as a priest in today’s society, loss of supportive colleagues, family conflicts, readapting to life outside of the Church – I’m sure these have impacted on Bills present travails. They do not excuse his potentially dangeroys behaviour towards anyone. I hooe and pray his family can intervene.. But blaming his “priesthood” years is not an argument in diagnosing his illness..It was only a matter of time before Bill was to fall apart. Sadly, despite the goodness of others.

2). Do not lend him any money, same thing he will squander it all and you will never see your money again.
3). As it says at the front of today’s blog – Do not go for coffee with him. It appears a little ploy he has going. He invites others, builds up and expensive bill and the person he invited for a simple coffee appears to have been duped in to paying for a bill of a ridiculous amount.

Let it go! Even if your needed revenge has the outcome you desire, you will still have to come to terms with the experience you have been through, See it as a learning curve.
There are many women who have a similar experience as yours, of course you feel hurt, sad, and maybe angry with yourself for been taken in. Even though you may not have thought of yourself as gullible and, vulnerable having to come to terms with that side of your character is not always easy either.
You know there cannot be a one side relationship.
Try and get professional help for your terrible turbulent emotions, otherwise it will drag you into a very dark place.

Holy Smoke aka Damian Thompson has an orthodox, right wing, reactionary, traditionalist axe to grind, so we do need to interpret and sift what he has to say about the RCC very carefully. However, the main thrust of his observation that the RCC is in some kind of terminal decline, for whatever reason he sees – which is essentially that it is not the autocratic, traditionalist Church he prefers – is essentially correct. My view is that it is for exactly the opposite reasons than Thompson thinks that the RCC is in terminal decline, namely that doubling down on tradition and so called orthodoxy is what is at the demise of the RCC. It has not over the decades responded well to the way the world and society, including the vast majority of the RCC faithful, have developed and changed. It has failed to see the signs of the times. The issues that are hobbling the RCC are the corrupt culture of its hierarchical and clerically dominated structure which leads to self-interest, protection of reputation at all costs, and criminality in all sorts of forms; it has failed to harness the immense power and ability of women in all way, including in ordained ministry; and it has resolutely refused to make healthy changes to its theology of priesthood that in its current guise leads to dysfunctional and toxic clerical behaviour and activity. It has also refused largely to move away from a moral / sexual obsession with interpreting pretty much anything and anyone, which is largely out of step with the way most people these days live their lives and manage their families and relationships. Until they address these issues, they can bang on all they like about social justice and peace etc. They will still go down the tubes. And deserve to do so.

Pat fair play to you for you for highlighting mental health and speaking of your own experience. I had issues myself and in my wider family there have been more significant issues.

I live in sunny climes now and the mood is almost always good or at leats reasonable. I would suggest to everyone in Ireland to make a point of walking every sunny weekend day in winter you get, it works wonders for the general mood.

Bill Mulvihill on the other hand has serious issues and what’s even more disturbing is that he is now abusing others. The very notion he could be upsetting people blaming them for relatives suicides and bringing up other old wounds he heard about when he was a priest is beyond scandal; its probably a Garda matter. What a nasty bastard he is. Mental health is no excuse. These victims may have found peace with these issues in the past but now like a nightmare he has brought them back up, making it much worse to heal and potentially doing severe psychological damage to the people involved.

6.44 I have been following the Killaloe saga for some time now, Pat, and I must tell you that you have allowed a very disproportionate amount of abuse to be heaped on Karen. There is one particular commentator who tries to provoke Karen at every opportunity. If you genuinely care about victims of clerical abuse then you might make more of an effort in protecting those victims from unnecessary abuse when you are moderating the comments. Pax.

7.59 Pat, you published two comments on blog from 30.9.22 that were purely slanderous. I do not INSIST you do anything. You often take the liberty of NOT publishing my comments. YOU are the moderator.

I partly agree with some of your points. WM, Karen and Yvonne have made this blog a laughing stock.
However, WM is clearly ill and has been for some months. Myself, and others have made this clear in the past and he should not be exposed publicly. A serious error of judgement was made in publishing the the letters between WM and Armagh. This seems to have made him worse. I do wonder about copyright issues abut publishing these letters particularly the Armagh ones.
WM is a sad, sad case and needs help (the request must come from him) and prayers. He is heading for skid row.
As for Karen, Yvonne et all, that is just a glorified cat fight.
The blog needs a rest from all of this.

Karen is enjoying the response from the blog Pat and it’s not healthy. The best thing you can do is get her to step back from the vengeance and cat fight. Karen’s mental health is also an issue here.

7.40 while it may seem lousy that she is being picked on, yvonne has her reasons, Karen can’t play the victim or the innocent with her as to why Yvonne has turned on her dramatically.

@8.52pm.
Yes, the Garngad is in north Glasgow surrounded by Townhead, Blackhill and Denniston, where Lulu comes from. Royston is the modern name for the Garngad which had a worse name than the Gorbals for poverty, anti orange walks etc.

I think Karen is beginning to have a bill moment against the readers and now pat when he has kindly offered all the help and support he could possibly give her. She has no gratitude.

7.09 I do not enjoy anything of the sort! I am in perfectly good form and am not interested in what people think of me on the blog. Someone *ahem* posted slanderous comments about me and I have the right to set the record straight. Don’t like it? Scroll on by.

You get something out of being on the blog otherwise you wouldn’t try include your 17k story or he’s still on the list of clearly every day. It’s your obsession not the other readers. I think the blog is sick of hearing about you and Ger Fitzgerald Karen, it’s been done to death. If there us any updates let us know

Nothing slanderous about telling the truth, surely you should know that more than anyone on the blog who has revealed very personal private ‘truthful’ info about a priest but that is one sided.

There is a gap in the market for ‘ministry’ to the ‘youth’ in Killaloe Diocese since Fr Jerry Carey took matters in to his own hands one day in public in Salthill beach.. All the Taize/Lourdes gigs Jerry ‘lived for’ are gone.. Including the prize gig of chaplain to an all girl Colaiste in Ennis.. 500+ teen girls.. Fr. Jerry living the dream.. what could possibly go wrong?….
