Unleash the Power of the Blog (Revival Bingo at SFO Catholic Church)
Mark Shea Blogspot ^ | October 26, 2006 | Mark Shea

Posted on 10/27/2006 10:46:37 AM PDT by NYer

A reader from San Francisco writes:

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence now use Most Holy Redeemer Parish Hall (beneath the church) for their monthly Revival Bingo.

Here's the listing for the next event. (scroll down to graphic)

Here's an article describing the fun, including prizes of porn dvd's and sex toys.

Here's the Sisters' own description with graphics.

And here's some info on "Peaches Christ", guest host for the "Bare Chest Bingo" event on November 2nd. (Read her/his bio, s/he is a direct descendant of Christ)

All to take place in the same building where the Body of Christ is reserved.

The pastor is the chancellor of the archdiocese, Fr. Stephen Meriwether.

In addition to emailing Fr. Meriwether with your well-deserved protests, don't forget to CC Archbishop George Niederauer and Bishop John Wester as well as Bishop Ignatius Wang. There is simply no excuse for this revolting sacrilege.

It takes a lot to shock me now a days but I have to admit this takes the cake. When I saw this I thought Shea must have misunderstood some kind of spoof. It appears not

Mercifully, Shea only posted the links and not the actual graphic images.

MHR prides itself in being an inclusive Catholic community -- embracing all people of good faith -- Catholics as well as those people interested in learning about the Catholic experience -- regardless of their background, gender, race, social status or sexual orientation.

Bare chest bingo is way outside the non-Catholic mission statement. I guess if you were a Satanist of "good faith" you can join the Church.

Satanist:"Pardon me father, can I have some of those Eucharists for a Black Mass later tonight?"
Priest:Should I deliver them after bare chest bingo?

In this flagrant case, the Bishop should act, and if he does not, this could go up the line.

Niederaur did not impress me with what he allowed in SLC.
It doesn't surprise me that he allows worse now that he is closer to Mahonyland.
Wasn't he a classmate of Mahony's?

Yes, you're right! According to the April issue of San Francisco Faith

CARDINALS ROGER MAHONY of Los Angeles and Justin Rigali of Philadelphia attended the February 15 installation of George Niederauer as archbishop of San Francisco. Mahony, Niederauer's "friend and classmate," "came all the way to The City,"

Oh, I am truly sorry. I had hoped it was. Seems frankly surreal.
I hope Jesus comes back soon. For some there will be nowhere to hide.

The appointment of Neiderauer was a real mystery to me.

That's what I read too - that he, Mahony, and the former San Francisco Bishop Levada (now head of the Roman Curia's Congregation of Doctrine and Faith) all graduated from the same Seminary. In fact, one article I read said that this guy, and Bishop Levada co-own an oceanfront condo together somewhere in Southern California. They were/are planning on using it as a retirmement pad, but those plans will need to be delayed with Levada's promotion to Rome. Kinda makes you wonder, doesn't it??

It would seem that they are all peas in the same left-wing pod.

I'm beginning to think that all "left-wing" priests are also queer. The straight "left-wing" priests all left to marry ex-nuns.

Soooooooo ... get rid of all the queers and what's left?

That's right: only the orthodox, "right-wing" priests.

Rule One: No Poofters!

Some people are so far gone that they have no shame in what they are doing to the Church.

Some say we have too few priests. I say if we got rid of some that we have now we would eventually have many, many more.

I hadn't thought of it the way that you did, but I would have to agree. The traditional orders are increasing, while these new age dunces are going by the wayside. It appears that God is still in control.
It does sicken me at the few poor souls that will be led astray by them though. Which level will they be in Dante's inferno?

Forget contacting the apostate clergy. I suggest we send the information to Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

This horror goes on too often in our Church. It is an insult to Christ and to His holy mother. I understand that the Church welcomes those who are battling with same sex attraction. Just as we welcome all who need the grace and love of Christ to lead them out of sin.
However endorsing this pro gay sex and anti Catholic group brings the flames of hell licking a little to close for comfort.

See my note above. The head of the Congregation of Doctrine and Faith, Bishop Levada, was the Bishop of San Francisco just before this guy. They, along with Cardinal Mahoney in Los Angeles, all graduated from the same (assumedly) left-wing seminary, and are all close friends. I would not be looking toward the Congragation of Doctrine and Faith to do anything about this situation.

I had forgotten about that. But perhaps now that Msr Leveda is under the eyes of Rome, he may be less likely to turn his back on such travesties.

I had written to the Archdiocese about this event and I've just received a response from them.

The Archediocese says that permission to use Ellard Hall "Should not have been given to the group" and that they have "directed the parish to end the arrangement immediately." The Archdiocese seems to be very well aware of the contempt, ridicule and derision by the SPI has shown towards Catholics in general and Women in Religious communities in particular.
