POPE ACCUSED OF PLAYING GOD OVER VATICAN TRIAL.

October 6, 2021 by Peter Complicit Clergy

A rare trial that puts a cardinal, his “lady,” and several con men in the dock inside the hallowed halls of the Holy See will start in earnest on Tuesday amid concerns that Pope Francis has made sure all 10 defendants will be convicted.

Becciu

It should be noted that the Vatican does not pretend to be a democracy. The pope is for all intents and purposes an authoritarian leader who can hire and fire anyone in his government at will.

That he also makes the laws without committee, changes rules without consensus, and delivers decrees with impunity usually works without major issues. But the defense teams in this high profile case argue that they are now caught in the gray area between who the pope likes and who he doesn’t.

The trial involves a €350 million property purchase in London with funds meant for the poor said to be swindled from the papal charity fund by trusted bankers. According to a 487-page indictment handed down in June, charity money meant to free a captive nun in Colombia also allegedly went instead to kit out a female consultant with designer bags and fancy shoes.

The only woman on trial, Cecilia Marogna, was a “security consultant” rumored to be a close acquaintance of Cardinal Angelo Becciu, a 73-year-old papal nemesis Pope Francis fired last September.

MAROGNA

“It’s all surreal. Up until yesterday… I felt I was a friend of the Pope, the faithful executor of the Pope,” Becciu, who is the highest-ranking prelate to ever face such charges, said in an interview after he was canned. “Then the Pope told me that he no longer had faith in me because he got a report from magistrates that I committed an act of misappropriation.”

All 10 defendants face charges ranging from embezzlement and money laundering to abuse of power and extortion.

In addition, more than 40 companies are also named as potentially complicit, especially on the charges of money laundering.

Becciu is charged for his role in the disastrous London deal, which cost the Vatican losses of more than $415 million, in addition to allegedly funneling funds to his brother’s charity and Morgona’s company in Slovenia to the tune of more than $1,000,000. They all deny culpability and have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

But defense lawyers have argued—in a slew of motions hastily filed last week—that the fact that the Holy See is not a signatory to any international convention that guarantees fair trials means there is no way any of those facing charges will get one.

Among the motions filed are claims of procedural violations, among them that the prosecution failed to hand over discovery documents including evidence from a turncoat who was a former associate of the defendants.

Flabio Viglione, attorney for the cardinal, told reporters that these violations are “harmful” to the defendants’ rights and could adversely impact their right to a fair trial.

PAT SAYS:

The pope may not be God but he is reputed to be God’s representative on earth. No?

Does it not say in canon law that no one can challenge the pope?

He is a formidable enemy – especially in the RC world. You pribably couldn’t have a bigger enemy in the that arena.

The Vatican is full of gangsters from top to bottom.

Beccui seems like a well-oiled gangster to me.

God knows what his relationship with Marogna involves?

If he is straight that’s unusual.

I’m glad Francis is rattling the gangsters gates.

Im glad he is rattling the gates of the right-wingers.

But what of Francis’ past and the the strokes he pulls?

Maybe it takes one to know one?

216,000 CHILDREN ABUSED BY FRENCH CATHOLIC PRIESTS !

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av-embeds/58801183/vpid/p071j0t8

Over 3000 priests were incvolved in the abuse if the 216,000 children.

This figure covers from 1950 until now.

The number of children abused could rise to 330,000.

The majority of the abused were boys between the ages of 10 and 13.

While the commission found evidence of as many as 3,200 abusers – out of a total of 115,000 priests and other clerics – it said this was probably an underestimation.

In 1996 there were 27,000 priests in France.

In 2006 there were 20,000 – a drop of 7,000.

What is the figure now after another 15 years?

PAY SAYS:

These abuse figures from “the oldest daughter of the Church” are alarming and horrific.

It means that upwards of 3200 French priests abused children in a period of 71 years.

This is not sinply a problem.

Its a MASSIVE and WORLD SHATTERING problem.

Its a good enough reason for the Republic of France to seize all the possessions of the RCC in France and to ban the RCC in that country.

Its a good enough reason to imprison any bishop or priest in France who abused a child or covered the abuse up.

France is already anti-clerical.

It will be much more so from now on.

THE CATHOLIC ANTI VAXXERS.

PAT SAYS:

I cannot believe the way otherwise intelligent people are not taking the Covid vaccinations and encouraging others not to have them.

I got my vaccinations in February and April and got Covid in July.

Thanks to the vaccinations I got a very mild dose of Covid which was indeed unpleasant but not serious.

The people I’ve come across against the vacvines are mainly religious right-wingers, both Catholic and Protestant ones.

And some of them actually believe that the vaccines are a global conspiracy so that governments can track them – and also weaken their immune system.

And yet they all carry mobile phones – perfect devices for tracking people!

COVID PASSPORTS:

I am in favour of Covid passports.

If people have the right not to be vaccinated then the rest of have the right to not be infected by them.

With every right there is an obligation. The right not to have the vaccine gives you the increased responsability not to infect others

And if you choose not to have the vaccine you nust accept that the rest of have the right not to be in close proximity to you.

THE USE OF TISSUE FROM THE ABORTED:

I am anti-abortion except in the rarest of cases.

But the majority of people in many countries have voted for it and there is little or nothing we can do about it.

The fact that tissue from aborted babies was used in the production if the vaccines is something over which we had no control.

Refusing the vaccine because of the way in which they were manufactured is not necessarily a moral obligation for us.

In one way it’s the lesser of two evils. Not taking the vaccine and getting very sick or dying is not a moral obligation.

OPEN LETTER TO MAYNOOTH’S FOUR NEW SEMINARIANS.

*** WILL HB WHO LEFT A MESSAGE ON MY ANSWERING MACHING PLEASE CONTACT ME ON 07488 374364 PLEASE.

From left: Damian Kirkpatrick (Down & Connor), Will O’Shea (Cloyne), Ciaran Bagchus (Down and Connor), Mark Caffery (Meath).

Incidentially, Ciaran Bagchus, is from a lovely and good Larne family.

Dear Damian, Will, Ciaran and Mark,

It is interesting for me, as a priest for 45 years and a bishop for the last 23 years, to look at the four of you starting out on the road.

I was where you are 51 years ago.

But in 1970 I was entering a very different church. Priests and seminarians were a plenty.

I was in Holy Cross, Clonliffe, Dublin and there were 120 of us for the one diocese of Dublin.

You are 4 for the 26 dioceses of Ireland and it will be a great exception if all of you make it to ordination.

I would expect 1 of you to be ordained and maybe none of you.

You are starting to prepare to enter one of the most dysfunctional bodied in the world – the Roman Catholic priesthood.

You are also preparing to be an office holder in one if the world’s most corrupt organisations.

The priesthood is now a gay profession and I would expect that most, if not all of you are gay.

And there is nothing wrong with being gay. And there is nothing wrong with being a gay priest.

The RCC will insist that you all take a solelm promise of celibacy.

Please dont take that if you do not intend to try and be faithful to it.

Most of the priests in Ireland today are gay, and many of them actively gay.

Some of them are to be found in gay saunas. Others are seeking gay sex at truck stops. Others are attending gay orgies. Others are having sex with other priests and seminarians. Others are seducing male parishioners.

The last thing we need at the moment is one, two, three or four more of these priests. They are destroying the Church’s reputation and the faith if the laity.

You are now living in a hotbed of homosexuality.

It will be unusual if you are not propositioned by a priest or fellow seminarian.

And if you are not propositioned it will mean that your predators do not find you physically attractive enough.

It won’t be because they don’t want to cause you spiritual, emotional, psychological or moral harm.

As you progress in Maynooth keep the words of the St Peter at tge forefront of your mind:

Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour”. (1 Peter 5:8)

Damian, Will, Ciaran and Mark, only proceed to ordination if you are passionate about God and being servants of His people and if you are determined to purify the prirsthood and church.

And if you try to that – be assured they will crucify you!

WILL NULTY GET TUAM?

Nulty

Clerical circles are awash with the talk that Denis Nulty will move from Kildare and Leighlin to Tuam.

This talk comes alongside the news that the priests of Tuam have made it very clear to the nunio that they will not accept the appointment of Fintan Monahan as their archbishop.

MONAHAN

Monahan was Neary’s secretary for many years and is not liked by the priests.

He is reputed to be nasty, sneaky and have a fierce temper.

If Nulty gets the job they will have no problems as Nulty has no substance and tries to be all things to all men and women.

But before leaving Kildare he should sort out the clergy attending the Gay / Satanic meetings near Stradbally.

There are also outstanding question of a Kikdare priest with a cloud hanging over him.

THE FUNERAL OF MONICA TIGHE RIP.

Bishop Paul Tighe’s mother was cremated in Dublin yesterday.

We all expected Paul to be the celebtate the funeral Mass but instead the main celebrant was Paul’s close friend Diarmuid Martin.

Paul did not preach the homily. DM did.

Perhaps Paul was too upset to celebrate. The death of one’s mother is an awful experience.

I celebrated the funerals of both my parents – my Dad, Jim in 1985 with Cahal Daly presiding and my Mum Josephine in 2006 in the Unitarian Church in Dublin.

My mother’s funeral was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.

THE IMMACULATE DECEPTION.

Christina Gallagher and her Achill Island house of prayer has always been very controversial.

It has now been shown to be a great fraud.

CHRISTINA GALLAGHER
THE BOOK

MICK POWER A FORMER DEVOTEE:

Mick Power got involved with the House of Prayer with his wife Paula in 1998, when their only child Tommy died of meningitis.

But the former member of the cult-like movement has spoken out for the first time, demanding that the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith investigate Ms Gallagher along with her spiritual director, Fr Gerard McGinnity, for heresy and unproven claims of miracles.

He described Ms Gallagher’s purported divine messages as “appalling” and “all about chastisements and the end of the world”.

“She was always talking about the anti-Christ and the wrath of the beast,” he said.

The final straw for the 39-year-old came in 2006, when Fr McGinnity read out a message in which Ms Gallagher was allegedly told by Jesus that if pilgrims did not provide money for a new House of Prayer in Texas, he would destroy the whole state.

“I was present when he said that and I said that is the end for me – how could anybody of any intelligence listen to that kind of rubbish?”

“It is true heresy. She has told them that the only thing that will save them during the great chastisement is a €250 picture available in the House of Prayer shop. That’s simony.”

Mr Power believes the Irish hierarchy needs to make a more concerted effort to examine the improper nature of Ms Gallagher’s visions and the funding mechanisms employed on behalf of House of Prayer.

PAT SAYS:

I have never believed in Christina Gallagher and her project.

She has now ammased millions and millions in terms of property and money.

ONE OF HER PROPERTIES
OTHER OF HER PROOERTIES

MY BIGGEST DILEMMA:

What I cant understand is the close involvement of the Armagh priest, Fr Gerard McGinnity with the whole thing.

As the dean of Maynooth at the time of the scandalous Monsignor Ledwith presidency, Fr McGinnity distinguished himself with his honesty and courage.

Fr McGinnity was treated disgracefully by Cardinal Tomas O’Fiaich, Eamon Casey and Cahal Daly.

I always viewed Gerard as a spiritual man.

How he has thrown in his lot with Christiana Gallagher is a complete mystery to me.

Was it his way of coping with his Maynooth crucifixion?

He retired early as an Armagh PP. He is still only 74.

Im glad that people have seen through Gallagher.

But she is laughing all the way to the bank and the estate agencies.

NEW HEAD OF JP 11 MARRIAGE INSTITUTE CALLS FOR REDEFINITION OF MARRIAGE.

September 24, 2021 by Peter COMPLICIT CLERGY.

“Weeks after taking up his post as new p resident of the former John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family, Monsignor Philippe Bordeyne made a remarkable statement in a revealing interview with La Croix International, the English-language daily edited by La Croix, unofficial daily of the French episcopate, saying, “We theologians cannot continue to assert certainties about the family when we see the transformations it is undergoing today.”

What are “certainties” about the family seen from the Catholic point of view? They are definitions, rules of life. They are reflections based on the natural realities and aims of marriage, and the natural laws that govern it. They are the result of the scrutiny of the revelation that tells of God’s plan for mankind, of the supernatural objective of procreation, which is to people God’s heaven with saints, and of the nature and value of sacramental marriage, which is a reflection of Jesus’ love for the Church.

When St. John Paul II founded the Pontifical Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family, it was clearly and profoundly attached to traditional Catholic doctrine on marriage, acknowledging the existence of absolute moral norms that are always binding and prohibit intrinsically evil acts. Such were the “certainties” mentioned above – and the fact that they were certainties did not make them uninteresting or rigid in the sense that they could not account for new realities of the day.

On the contrary, they were the principles, the supporting walls on which the Church could build in order to assess modernity and, if necessary, challenge it with the help of faith and reason – as it did, for instance, with gender ideology, which is a radical negation of the rules of God’s creation”

PAT SAYS

There are beliefs that we Catholic Christians are not able to change – The existence of God, the Trinity etc.

But there other things that are open to change and to a change of beliefs and teachings and practice.

The church showed littke interest in marriage until the 12 th century.

Same-sex partnerships were blessed in medieval times.

In time to come:

1. Celibacy will be optional.

2. Women will be ordained.

3. Same sex marriages will be blessed.

On the way there will be much division and schisms will happen.

The church will shrink.

Whats really the point in having a billion nominal members anyway?

And JP 11 will be on permanent rotation in his tomb.

WEE JOHNNIE GATES AND PALS REOPEN MAGHERAFELT PARISH. BINGO.

BISHOP CASEY AND ANNIE MURPHY’S LOVE NEST FOR SALE FOR € 1.6 MILLION.

CASEY

The house where Eamon Casey drank a mixture of cognac and milk as foreplay to having sex with Annie Murphy is on the market for 1.6 million.

ANNIE

Annie from the USA was depressed after a divorce and Casey persuaded her father that she come to him in Ireland for healing.

Casey certainly gave Annie the rub of the relic 😉

I shared a N. Ireland TV chat show (Kelly Live) with Annie Murphy and had a long chat with her.

I liked her.

She told me that she woukd have never outed Casey had he not denied their son, Peter.

If you hurt a child you hurt the mother more than if you hurt her directly.

Casey stole £ 70,000 of diocesan money to try and pay them off.

He would have been happy to continue to live his double life.

He was a typical cleric – selfish and narcissistic.

In the end he chose the church over the woman he had impregnated and the child he had fathered.

He was another Michael Rasputin Cleary.

And he also sexually abused his niece 😪

POPE FRANCIS APPOINTS BRENDAN LEAHY TO CONGREGATION FOR CATHOLIC EDUCATION.

LEAHY
FROM VATICAN

This is certainly prestigious recognition for Leahy.

It might even get him Tuam?

What kind of bishop of Limerick has he been?

I’ve heard very little of his bishopping

TRANS MEN UNKNOWINGLY ADMITTED TO PRIESTHOOD AND RELIGIOUS LIFE.

Trans men “unknowingly admitted” to Catholic seminaries, bishops’ committee alleges

The National Catholic Reporter reports that Milwaukee Archpbishop Jerome Listecki, who serves as the chairman of the bishops’ Committee on Canonical Affairs and Church Governance, told the nation’s bishops in a Sept. 22 memo that they might consider “various options” to ensure that only people assigned male at birth are ordained to the Catholic priesthood:

Listecki

In his recent memo, Listecki says his committee had been made aware of “instances where it had been discovered that a woman living under a transgendered identity” had been admitted to a seminary or a religious institute’s house of formation.

In one instance, Listecki wrote, an individual’s “sacramental records had been fraudulently obtained to reflect her new identity. In all instances, nothing in these individuals’ medical or psychological reports had signaled past treatments or pertinent surgeries.”

You might argue that if priests and their congregations see a trans man as a man, that should be good enough for everyone.

Christianity has actually a long history with trans men living as male monks, so it is not as if Catholics cannot cope with trans men in a constructive way. It is just that the Catholic church leaders do not want to.

On the protestant side, trans and nonbinary men and women are becoming more accepted, as proven by Megan Rohrer being ordained bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.

Many protestant churches have also, for many years, ordained women. Indeed, researchers argue that  the Catholic Church also ordained female priests all the way up till the 11th century. Gary Macy writes:

A radical change in the definition of ordination during the 11th and 12th centuries not only removed women from the ordained ministry, but also attempted to eradicate any memory of women’s ordination in the past.

So you might also say that the exclusion of trans men is the end result of the exclusion of women, given that these church leaders see trans men as women.

The illustration above is of Saint Marinos, who was assigned female at birth, being led into a male monastery by their father in fifth century Lebanon. This saint  is celebrated on June 18 in the Roman Catholic Church and on other dates in other traditions. Marinos was not ordained as a priest, though.

By the way, I am glad to note that the National Catholic Reporter refers to trans men as trans men. I doubt that this is done by accident.

Note that if a trans man was ordained as a priest in the Catholic Church, that ordination would probably not be considered valid given the current theology of this church.

PAT SAYS

This whole thing is quite interesting.

An archbishop has claimed that some trans men have slipped through into the seminary and religious life.

Are they still there?

Were they ordained?

I once met a priest, who is still in ministry, who told me he had been born with the genitalia of both sexes.

Do we still hold to the conviction that the genetalia you are born with decides what gender and sex you are?

While at the same time the surgeons are changing men into women and men into women.

And does a sacrament, in this case, Holy Orders, only take effect on a male body and not on a female body?

I thought sacraments took effect on the soul?

What do readers think?

ARE POPE FRANCIS’ CRITICS AND HATERS EVIL?

Pope Francis talks a lot about the Devil.

Recently he has said that those hating him and wishing him dead are are”doing the work of the Devil”

And strangely, it is the right-wing conservative Catholics who hate him and wish him dead.

You would have thought that conservative Catholics would have done something they’ve always done – love the pope and almost treat him like God?

They were always the ones who pushed papal infallibility to the extremes.

THE REAL PROBLEM:

The real problem the right-wingers is that this pope is not on their side – and Benedict was.

Francis has

1. Made sympathetic overtures to the LGBT folk.

2. Restricted the Latin Mass very heavily.

3. Accepted same sex civil unions.

4. Restrained the Roman Curia.

5. Given the world’s bishops more say and authority.

Francis also has fairly big names after him from the right wing side – people like Cardinal Burke and Archbishop Vigano.

There is also the big American Catholic TV station ETWN.

MY VIEW:

As a liberal Catholic I am on Francis’ side in this scrap.

I did not like Benedict.

I see no point in the Latin Mass.

I believe the Vatican is totally corrupt.

I think that Vigano and especially Burke are dinosaurs.

THE OUTCOME:

There may well be a schism in the RCC with the Latin Mass and Lace Brigade breaking away and maybe eventually joining up with the SSPX.

On the other side, the German Church is ploughing its own furrow with its own synod and its intentions of allowing same-sex marriages and admitting Protestants to receive Holy Communion.

The real problem is that the RCC has never really managed to find its place in the modern world.

While most people are living in the 21 st Century the RCC is stuck in the past and most modern intelligent people are not willing to accept RC teachings on sexuality and women and many other issues.

Personally I like the “conflict” that is happening.

Change comes from conflict and change.

As for whether the Devil is involved?

He doesn’t have to be personally involved. There are many in the Church doing the “devilment” for him.

AND SPEAKING OF DEVILS……….
