I agree. The record of the Popes has generally been poor on this. They are loath to bust bishops. JPII’s ecclesiology held that bishops are practically untouchable. Rembert Weakland’s abuses—of money, of the liturgy, of boys—were all known in Rome for decades. He was confronted with stacks of documented complaints each time he was in Rome. But he stayed almost to retirement age, and it really was the press, not the Pope, who made it necessary to quit.

I anticipate that future episcopal appointments will include a significant cadre of lifelong Democrats who will do all they can to soft-pedal abortion.

Taken as a whole, the loyalty of the American bishops to the baby-killing party and their accommodations to the culture of death absolutely eclipse the various failures of the German episcopate in the 1930s. For one thing, their treason to the Church has gone on for decades, not one decade. And the German state threatened clergy and laity alike with actual violence.

With respect for your state of denial with being out of step with Rome, you don't know Lampedusa from Shinola.

Pope meets with Cardinal Dolan and U.S. bishops' conference leadership

I will read your links again, but nothing there affects the accuracy of what I wrote here.

I am never going to support dalliance with socialism and Marxism, no matter who it is, but the Church has never approved of either, either. ;)

Well do look longingly at the "right hand of fellowship" given between the Bishop of Rome and his brother bishops of the USCCB. They stand together.....with you.

Nowhere does it state that the Pope is advising them to promote the invasion that is going on. The have a deaf ear to what is happening. They do not understand the nature if what is happening

I’ve read quotes that state we are a wealthy nation and we need to share.
No we are not we cannot pay our bills. We are nearing 20 trillion in debt and soon in a real mess with BO care

None of them, not the Pope, understand the extent nor the volume of the situation, relying on lying statistics and politicians

They are misrepresenting the situation and are doing so to the new Pope

It is a real problem

But the Catechism says what it says and it speaks against this

Imagine that! A Jesuit theologian with an education stretching from Argentina to Spain to Germany, prays to "Our Mother the Blessed Virgin Mary, Star of the New Evangelization" every day for protection and guidance, may have been elected the Bishop of Rome, the "Vicar of Christ", by some of the very devils who are trying to deceive him now. You would think he would have some intellectual and Heavenly discernment.

Or, maybe he knows exactly what he is doing?

Wake up.

Unfortunately this is all about MONEY"

I'd have to agree with you there.

Tell the people what they want to hear-not what is the truth.

The gold, frankincense, and myrrh were to bribe the border guards and buy Joseph the rudimentary carpenter tools he would need to support his family in Alexandria.

Think about him - an honest, God-fearing, law abiding man his entire life.

Had to get accustomed to unimaginably terrifying dreams of fiery angels, telling him life was about to be turned upside down.

Became a fugitive with no warning and no 'criminal skills'.

Had to schlep a newborn and a teenage wife, barely recovering from childbirth, across the Sinai.

And never bitched about it. Joseph was an action-hero stud.

And by the way, your excellency, Bishop David: Jesus spent 90% of his life as middle-class small business man,
