INTEGRITY? WHAT IS THAT?

the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles

Very recently on the blog, I was challenged to define what integrity was – as I use the word often.

THE QUALITY OF BEING HONEST

Being honest like so many things starts within.

Internal honesty means being in touch with my real self – knowing and acknowledging all my strengths and all my weaknesses.

The people who are “problematic” in society and in community are often the same people who are internally immature, underdeveloped, and non integrated. In simple words , they are not in touch with their real inner selves and have an unrealistic notion of who and what they are.

This problem is very visible in younger priests and seminarians.

In Alcoholics Anonymous, such people are often described as engaging in STINKING THINKING.

Externally, having honesty or integrity involves speaking honestly and acting honestly.

A bishop or priest who fails to speak and act honestly with his colleagues and with others DOES NOT have integrity.

Sadly, speaking and acting honestly is the last thing we can expect from the majority of RCC bishops and priests.

In fact, we expect and get the very opposite ๐Ÿ˜ž

This is proven by:

1. The international sexual abuse pandemic totally swamping the RCC.

2. The international cover-up of sexual abuse in the RCC.

3. The international corruption of the RCC.

4. The international cover-up of the universal corruption in the RCC.

HAVING STRONG MORAL PRINCIPLES

Do we see STRONG MORAL PRINCIPLES on display in the RCC internationally and in Ireland and the UK?

1. Francis’ handling of the Argentinian Bishop Zanchetta homo scandal.

2. The Vatican’s London property scandal.

3. The Mc Carrick scandal in the USA.

4. The Canadian indigenous children’s scandal.

5. The Tuam Babies scandal.

6. The Magdalen Laundries scandal.

7. The Dublin, Ferns and Cloyne reports.

THE IRISH / ENGLISH / SCOTTISH CHARACTERS

Bishop Eamon Casey.

Fr Micael Cleary.

Fr Brendan Smyth – Norbertine Order.

Fr Dominic Savio – Capuchin Order.

Fr Ivan Payne, etc . Dublin.

Fr Sean Fortune, etc – Ferns.

And the saddest thing is they have to have this explained to them, and still wonโ€™t believe people (not them) have integrity!
Your clerical trolls display their stunted personalities, some of which verge on actual personality disorders, on the blog day in day out.
What kind of fuckwit would look to them for moral leadership? They canโ€™t even believe other people are telling the truth because they donโ€™t themselves!

You are correct up to a point. However, fr Michael did a lot of good work for the homeless in central London. He also did a lot of good work for inter religious relations. He broke down barriers.
The cash would have been used for the homeless, the passage day centre and getting poor souls back into society and work. You need to tell the whole story. The man led a very simple life.
The line was crossed by him albeit the intentions were good.
The cash was not for his personal benefit.
How much help do you do for the homeless and disadvantaged?
Be fair.

Michael seems to be fond of the bottle, it difficult to find a picture where he is not holding a glass of wine in his hand. Led a very simple life!! You are joking arenโ€™t you? He Laps up all the attention fawned upon him.

A report published today by report from Dr Shannon following his independent investigation into St John Ambulance Service says there was a โ€œsignificant degree of organisational awarenessโ€ of the dangers posed by a former senior officer in the Old Kilmainham division in Dublin who is alleged to have sexually abused more than 15 boys in the organisation, between the late 1960s and late 1990s.
The report says there was โ€œfailures at a systemic levelโ€ when it came to child protection, with the organisationโ€™s structures facilitating โ€œgrooming and predatory behaviourโ€.
Internal correspondence, seen by The Irish Times, shows Tusla previously gave St John Ambulance a clean bill of health, when concerns about past abuse were raised by a TD.
As Fianna Fรกil Opposition spokeswoman for children, Minister of State Anne Rabbitte had privately written to then minister for children Katherine Zappone in 2019, after meeting three men abused by the former senior figure in St John Ambulance.
In a 5th December 2019 response, Bernard Gloster, then-Tusla chief executive, assured Ms Rabbitte past alleged abuse had not been widespread.
Tusla had previously conducted an investigation into disclosures from two of the survivors, and deemed their child sex abuse allegations made against the former senior figure to be โ€œfoundedโ€.
Mr Gloster said a senior social worker had reviewed records in the Dublin Mid-Leinster region and had not found any further reports of past alleged abuse in the organisation.
โ€œTherefore all available information suggests that there is no evidence of systemic or organisational abuse within St John Ambulance,โ€ he wrote.
Gloster said he had been advised โ€œthat there are no current concernsโ€ with standards in the organisation. He also stated that Tusla officials had reviewed its child safeguarding statement and deemed St John Ambulance to be compliant.
Dr Shannonโ€™s report published today concludes that St John Ambulance still does not have a finalised child protection policy. This contradicts the assurances given by Bernard Gloster in 2019.

There are some very challenging meanings to the word INTEGRITY. It’s a word that misused and bandied about all too easily. Primarily its about being a trustworthy person : Your word is your bond. Its a out loyalty to truth and justice. Its about always seeking to do what right, just and acceptable in the eyes of Gid. Irs about truth and never equivocation in truth or more principals. IN gospel language it’s being “salt of the earth”, people who make a positive difference to life and others buying the gospel. People who are truly.their best, kind and caring selves, with a humble spirit and no pride or praise needed. We’ve net people who attain some or most of these traits. My parents, gr abhorrent and grandparents were of this genre but quietly taught us through morals and values that they defined as correct, primarily Catholic In origin. We thank Gid for thus teaching by examen. I was also shaped by people of great moral and Christian integrity through college and in pastoral assignments. Some staff inspired a little. Some students too bht I’ve Bern.blessed to encounter truly good peolpe of gospel integrity ebo shamed my by their living. I suspect we all have some aspect of I territory. I’d be loathe to say there are thousands of priests who are unpossesdinh on integrity. I know many of an older age profile who taught me many wise lesdi s a out the things that tr mattered about priesthood. The particular quality that brought me to them was what I believed was the meir integrity of life and good example. These men gave me wise spiritual advice. They have passed on now but I reclall them in prayer coccassionally. Really at the end of the day there’s a crazy mix in all of us, some hood, laudable, some awful and destructive. Perhaps another person beyond our own assessment might speak more truthfully than we will about ourselves!!

This is a very interesting topic which might explain to a considerable extent what is at the heart of RCC corruption pandemic. Authenticity, being real or true to oneself, and self in relation to others, is a core existential theme for everyone, including those considered ontologically altered. Communicating and relating are core characteristics of relationships. However our relationship with self is a key issue in life. The quality of relationship we have with ourselves is mirrored in the quality of relationships we have with others. Self-ownership, honesty, acceptance, etc, and authentically owning and expressing internalised integrated guiding moral principles and values are essential components of authentic living, not simply because an authority figure in Church State or Establishment says so. Christians are called to ground themselves in the Gospels and tasked to take on the mind of Christ. It seems to me, many of the blog stars lead duplicitous inauthentic hypocritical lives.

Integrity. Not a word these days we associate with the Church or with clergy. Once it was the priest that you went to and talked to about what worried you, and confided your innermost concerns and secrets. Not now. This sea change in our trust in the clergy and their integrity has been huge and is unlikely to be restored. We now trust and see integrity in other institutions, organisations, professionals and people. At a personal level, I think we have see so much dishonesty and duplicity as well as criminality in individual priests that we now find ourselves double thinking and guessing about any priest we meet. What is he really up to, when no-one is watching ? Is what we see what we are really getting ? Previously, we just wouldnโ€™t have even asked these questions. As to the Church, I was brought up to believe that the Church did not / could. not err. Now, I forensically examine and question everything that the Church says, so much do I mistrust it, its motives and its actions. The counter argument is, how would my / your life stand up to inspection ? Would I / you be seen as a person of integrity ? Probably not, for we are all fallen and sinful and compromised. However, I / you, as lay people, do not set ourselves up to be people of integrity, publicly taking vows and promises about the integrity of our lives and our desire to live an honest life in accordance with what we are promising, and then go off and live a parallel and duplicitous life of lies in the shadows. Thatโ€™s the difference.

Homosexuality ((active) (orientation isnโ€™t a problem except teaching says donโ€™t admit homosexuals to the priesthood- in itself illegal) so complete lack of integrity.
Money: priests always make out their poor and have no money – hence Christmas and Easter collection) but this is total bollox they are loaded and take the widows mite without a blush.

The passage from Romans you quote is one that we see the holy ones twist (because they have no integrity) all the time. It is, anyway, irrelevant when someone says the Roman ‘church’ has a problem with abuse to say other churches or society also have, and implies that nobody should do anything about it. It is the same faulty argument they use to try to stop people criticising their cult when they say nobody is perfect, or Pat Buckley thinks he’s perfect, etc.
In fact the primary meaning of the passage isn’t even to say that we are all sinners. The whole sentence actually says,
‘There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.’
The whole point is actually to say that there is now no difference in redemption between Jew and Gentile!
How lacking in integrity would you have to be to twist that into meaning ‘Pat Buckley can’t criticize us because he’s a sinner’????

I think integrity is honesty, owning up when you find yourself responsible for doing something wrong or, unacceptable, or being part of such a case, whether it be intentional or accidental, and not covering up for others when a serious misdemeanour or crime is committed, or, witnessed.
If we don’t know or understand what lack of integrity is, look no further than the Roman Catholic hierarchy, we find it in abundance, they are masters of duplicity.
Not only the RCC, it is alive and flourishing. indeed prospering, in every religious denomination.
In fact we are all capable of dishonesty. I doubt if there is a person who has not being a liar at some time in their lives, even very young children lie. Both children and adults. lie to avoid punishment
We le to protect ourselves or others from harm, to maintain privacy, and avoid embarrassment.
Unfortunately having integrity/ being honest is frequently neither appreciated, nor rewarded, quite the opposite, there can be a backlash and, the person involved may even find themselves ostracised, or never promoted, or punished in some other way, whether in secular or religious life.

Most Catholics are ignorant of Anglican theology (though admittedly arriving on a settled Anglican view on anything is like herding cats, nailing jelly to the wall or getting a joke out of MMM. If you ask two Anglicans for a view on something you get five different opinions.
However, as far as I can tell, the Anglicans and Methodists have very strange ideas about the afterlife. For them, Hades, or the place of the dead, is represented as a spacious receptacle with gates, through which the dead enter. This space is divided into Paradise and Gehenna but with an impassable gulf between the two. Souls, with exception of martyrs and saints, remain in Hades until the Final Judgment, when they get their final reward or are sent everlastingly to Hell.
Catholics, on the other hand, teach that there is a personal judgement at the moment of death, with the soul going immediately to Heaven, Pugatory or Hell. I would have asked the street preacher where the Paraclete fitted into his preaching.

Fact is NO ONE, not even the dogmatic and autocratic Romanists, know what happens to a person immediately after death, and beyond. Expressed certitudes on the subject, whether Romanist or otherwise, are actually theological pretensions, and entirely speculative. They may, or may not, be right, therefore
What we ARE certain of is that God so loved the world that he gave his only son for the world. There is only one God, and it was God who died on Calvary that day, in the person of Jesus. Jesus did not suffer alone there.
God is loving, merciful, and just. And it is as much an act of mercy as it is justice that he would try, both before AND after death, to draw to himself all, even those not fully repentant, but not fully rebelled against God either.
Never understate God’s desire to win over a person. In the end, though, it is the person’s choice. No one is sent by God to the state of Hell, but, sadly, by himself.
