AMY AND “THE MINISTRY OF DIPLOMACY”

In his tribute to Ambassador Treanor the Roman incumbent of Armagh says that Noel Treanor is now embracing THE MINISTRY OF DIPLOMACY

“At this time, there are many challenges to be faced across Europe and at global level and the ministry of diplomacy within the Church serves to promote the pursuit of justice and peace in the world”.(sick)

How in the name of all that is holy, does living in a Brussels’ mansion, eating caviar hor d’oeuvres, drinking pink champagne, in various embassies and Michelin starred restaurants suddenly become a MINISTRY !!!

Is it based on that piece from the Gospel that says

“I send you out like Princes among the plebs. Carry a full purse of Euros and a Gamarelli haversack. Only salute the rich and famous on the boulevards. Whenever you go into a house, make sure it is a rich man’s house. If Michelin standard, eat what is set before you. Let your first words be: “I’m here to collect Peter’s Pence”. If a man of wealth lives there he will write a big cheque. If not leave that house and shake the shag pile off your feet and say to that house: “It will worse with you than in the Tuam baby home”.

If Noel’s new appointment is a ministry

1. Is burying babies in sewerage tanks a MINISTRY to poor, unwanted children?

2. Is money laundering in the Vatican Bank a MINISTRY to rich con men?

3. Is imprisoning and slaughtering native children a MINISTRY to indigenous people?

4. Is making pregnant girls convent slaves a MINISTRY to women?

5. Is shagging a cleric in a monastery kitchen a MINISTRY to priests?

6. Is sticking your ass out in a Boilerhouse a MINISTRY to bishops?

7. Is sacrificing your wallet and car a MINISTRY to rent boys?

8. Is making an American woman pregnant a MINISTRY to depressed divorcees?

9. Is taking Class A drugs in forest cruising areas a Ministry to young rural males?

10. Is showing your genitalia on the nocturnal Internet a MINISTRY to teenagers?

11. Is having say sex on an altar a MINISTRY to seminarians?

THE RCC CONTINUED INVENTIONS

Amy is one of those in the RCC who invent new notions in order to justify church behaviour that is not of God and not according to the mind of Christ.

Jesus NEVER INTENDED a Vatican State, a Vatican Bank, a Vatican Museum, a King Pope, His church owning trillions and trillions, papal nuncios, bishop’s palaces, etc

All these things are the inventions of men – a minority of men who have hijacked His church and like in the Temple turned it into a den of thieves and robbers.

The RCC is not organised and run according to the mind of Christ and His New Testament teachings.

It is simply an international conglomerate based on money, power, control and corruption of every kind.

On one occasion a man asked me:

Bishop Pat, is it possible that the Anti Christ is an organisation and not an individual”?

My answer:

YES !

Ahhh, some interesting names there ! Seed has now gone to seed, I think. Wasn’t there some little local trouble that saw him put out to grass – financial irregularities and accusations concerning the sale of Papal knighthoods ? Yes, he was a bit of an attention seeker and able to make maximum advantage out of his connections. Osman is still living it up in his very fine Georgian presbytery with a private mooring on the Thames in Dorchester on Thames. Been there decades. Grace and favour stuff from his old Cambridge chaplain mate, Couve. Some say that they let him stay there because he’s been spending his own money on doing the place up and keeping it going. The Birmingham gay pretty boys sent off to Rome: Well, there was Sharkey, not pretty, probably not gay, and a bit full of himself, but he ended up coming back to Brum when he realised he wasn’t really going to get anywhere, and has since spent his time on the pastoral mission. When he came back Maurice sent him out to Chelmsley Wood to bring him down to earth ! Cruel ! I think there’s another B’ham priest currently doing desk duty in the Vatican, Paul Moss, another who thinks a lot of himself and was always trooped out as the up and coming new bright young thing. I see he’s living in the VEC, no doubt seen as a good role model for the boys there ! And, a clutch of other Brum priests off in the military as chaplains, doing very little and getting paid a lot. In the meantime, the clergy directory abounds with the names of priests who have come from abroad – still some Polish, but mostly Indian, Sri Lankan, Filippino, Vietnamese etc. It is very definitely a reverse missionary diocese. As are the congregations. That’s the way it’s going. Like it or not.

That’s a powerful blog today, Pat. And true.
Romanists tend to ‘ministrisize’ all their activities to make them appear not just morally legitimate, but even a divine imperative. It’s a way of declaring their actions holy, beyond reproach. The Pharisees thought of their activities in much the same way.
Romanists speak of priesthood in this manner, despite the fact that Jesus neither instituted priesthood, nor needed it (since he would accomplish what it could not: atonement for sin).
The truth is that Treanor is ‘orf’ to Brussels to luxuriate with the ‘beau monde’. But, then, he’s only following Jesus’ example, isn’t he? Calling to humility the wealthy and powerful? Of course he is.
If this elite is unsure, Treanor will show them the way. By long example.

I’m amazed at his passion for saving the Catholic Church and his focus on men. Did you have ever think of doing an outreach like this in the country? Maybe God is working powerfully through him?

Thousands of Irish children were starved to death in convent concentration camps and their cause of death on their death certificates was clinically described as ‘Marasmus’: Marasmus is a deficiency of all macronutrients: carbohydrates, fats, and protein. If you have marasmus, you lack the fuel necessary to maintain normal body functions. People with marasmus are visibly depleted, severely underweight and emaciated. Despite being paid genrously by the Irish State to feed their inmates, mother and baby homes starved infants to death and dumped their tiny bodies into sewers, whilst the nuns charged with their care had to loosen their cinctures to accommodate their expanding waistlines.

Great post Pat and very interesting to think of the RCC as an organization as a whole entity over time.
I have no doubt Jesus did not intend his pastors to expend much time on eating canapes and foie gras in embassies. One has to look at the whole monstrosity that is the RCC and ask, has it had a positive contribution overall? It has created 2 billion odd Catholics. Was it Jesus express mission to deliver quantity over quality? Hardly. Did he intend to create a country of squinting windows in Ireland? No. Did he intend pastors to take care of the flock and genuinely spread the message of love of God? Yes, but they haven’t done that.
What they have done is hoard massive sums of cash and keep begging from the public for more. The Crusades -check. Institutional child abuse -check. Illegal adoption -check. Influencing governments and retarding social change -check. Murder -check. Imprisoning unmarried mothers -check. Institutional pedophilia – check. Did Jesus want all this? No. They are a terrorist organization and should be prescribed.

According to Amy, ‘ the ministry of diplomacy within the Church serves to promote the pursuit of justice and peace in the world.’ Laughable.
Where is justice for survivors of Church abuse so survivors can live in peace…? Lame duck Amy claims, “There is a crying need for atonement,
inner healing and hope in the aftermath of the abuse scandals”.
(‘The aftermath’, as if its all over….coverup of scandals is ongoing.)
So, what is Amy going to do in relation to meeting the need for atonement? NOTHING. He gives the impression it has nothing to do with him. The same can be said for Ledwith Farrell in Dublin; ” No matter what words we use to describe our revulsion at hearing about these heinous crimes, they can never capture the reality of suffering endured by victims and survivors of sexual abuse, suffering compounded by the pathetic responses of those who failed to protect the people they were ordained
to shepherd. Because trust was breached in a most egregious manner survivors have suffered years of irreparable damage. For that, no word of apology will ever be sufficient.” What are the lame duck bishops of Ireland going to do for survivors of Church abuse and the Christian community as a whole…? NOTHING, other than more empty religious rhetoric, which will only further alienate more people while undermining the credibility of the gospel. Coverup of abuse compounds survivors suffering. The MINISTRY OF COVERUP will continue…..

Saw photos of yesterday blog, few things jumped out at me-bishops looked well fed, fat and clean,living life of a king.
Where did it all go wrong, that is not what jesus intended to be. From the bible, jesus wore plain clothes of that time, he had no possessions with him, he usually eats with people at their house via invitation, he preached from the hills or rear of a fishing boat. He had nothing on him, bibe never said or didn’t say it nor mention it if he owned a home with exception of his parents home.
What’s bugging me was these bishops have millions in their bank accounts,but at the same time, they still want us to contribute our 💰💰 on every Sunday cash collections-🤷‍♀️
What more do these bishops want?
Alarms bells rang for me re rcc was as it started to erode trust from there.
1st one was breaking the seal of confession by Vincentian priest now deceased.
2nd was Bishop Casey.
3. Trocaire-misuse of funds.
4. Cruelty of the nuns which was re-awakened me at later stage via ptsd. It took me ages to recover from this. What I mean was it turned and upsided down me as it took me some six months to undo
it without knowing it was ptsd a that time. My pysch report shocked everybody (certain few) who read it as I didn’t realise it was so bad until it hit me. Now I’m on sort of recovering mode instead of destructive mode.
5. Trust in rcc gone re their denials especially the nuns who deny and deny it until they went blue in their faces. Fair play to order of Christian brothers who acknowledged and admitted it. As I realised now nuns (daughters of the cross of liege) were only interested in money in the guise of charity. Cos it was a private school at first as parents had to pay for it until state came over.
6. Read John gillespie book, thought that there was something wrong with rcc cos they dont preach about it, don’t do healing etc. One comment of his struck me as incredulous was his claim that you don’t healed at mass, it’s prayer that does it. Its prayer that governed God, not the mass.
His point as i understand was that you don’t have to go to mass in order to get healed. Protestant and other religious orientation went to him for healings. He had a visiting priest there at one time but no mass. At first, I thought he was talking baloney re prayer but it struck me that it worked for me re his prayer book. I was just astounded when I saw it. So something had to be right re him. It had me wondering why people didn’t get healed in rcc. No healings in rcc sort of implied or suggested it that it isn’t working. He got barred from Catholic churches re his talks or his retreat as bishops didn’t like it. He had to go to hotels ballroom or indescript halls to preach his message.
Jesus got barred from preaching in jewish churches or Jewish places so he had to go outside to hills or fishing boats to preach it. It was bit similar to gillespie as I thought.
People are still looking for healing even right now. Pentecostal is all the rage in Brazil.

AMID SCANDALS AND POLITICS, POLAND’S YOUTHS LOSE FAITH IN CATHOLIC CHURCH
WARSAW (POLAND)
New York Times
November 28, 2022
By Andrew Higgins
“The Polish church is in a deep crisis, as its authority is sapped by cascading sexual abuse scandals and as more people grow wary of its perceived alliance with the country’s right-wing government.”

“BYDGOSZCZ, Poland — A committed Catholic who served from childhood as an altar boy, Karol dreamed as a teenager of entering the seminary in his hometown in northern Poland and becoming a priest.
“I had a deep faith and wanted to serve the church,” said Karol, now 26, recalling how he had discussed his hopes of one day becoming a bishop with his spiritual mentor, a priest at the Church of Divine Providence in the city of Bydgoszcz. But that was before the priest raped him.
“The whole church has been poisoned,” Karol said in an interview, asking that his full name not be used by The New York Times. His story, one of many that has stirred outrage over the years in the Polish news media, is part of a cascade of sexual abuse scandals that has plunged the Roman Catholic church in Poland into a deep crisis and eroded trust among young people.”

Mgr Robert Murphy has had a congenial life, including his current posting in New York:

“He is a native of Solihull in the West Midlands of England, just outside of Birmingham. He studied literature and civil law at Cambridge University and then entered seminary, obtained bachelor’s degrees in philosophy and theology at the Institut Catholique in Paris and then was sent by Bishop Maurice Couve de Murville of Birmingham to obtain a license in theology at the Gregorian University in Rome. He was ordained a priest in 2001.

In 2004, he was sent by his bishop to the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy where he received a doctorate in fundamental theology at the Gregorian. In 2007, he officially entered the diplomatic service of the Holy See and was sent successively to serve at the the nunciatures to Colombia, Argentina, Italy and Germany. In 2013, he was assigned to Rome where he worked as the personal secretary to Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Holy See Secretary of State, for six years, before being posted to the nunciature to india.”
