New Jesuit Provincial Bets Against Rome
The Eponymous Flower ^ | 09/17/2010 | Tancred

Editor: He had previously this week offered to pay out settlements to compensate victims. He had also, as Novice Master, spoken of the pernicious homosexual culture in seminaries.

And he maintains: Appointments in the Church Hierarchy are reminiscent almost of "corruption" -- Almost half of Catholics are today continuously closed off from the Sacraments.

The new Provincial of the German Jesuits, P. Stefan Kiechle SJ, spoke this week for the abolition of celibacy. Kiechle spoke this Wednesday in the auspices of the "Cardinal-Höffner-Circle" Catholic CDU-member for the release of married men for the priesthood and for the consideration also of the ordination of women. Along these lines, Kiechle criticized the practice of appointments in the hierarchy of the Church. They are arranged by connections and are almost reminiscent of "corruption".

I am a graduate of a Jesuit university. I send my children to Catholic schools, but would not sent them to 95% of Catholic colleges and definitely not to any Jesuit schools.

The Superior continued, saying, the Catholic Church should establish centers.

Does he mean... parishes?

In the first place, there is a "reduction to core business", belonging to the "orderly and qualitative" Liturgy and Catechesis; these may also may influence good moods. Further accents must be "with quality" in the formation of schools and religious instruction. What the Church sows with the children, will remain.

Either the translation broke down or the man's a gibbering loon. Could be both I suppose.

Further accents must be mercifulness toward and usefulness of the disenfranchised and people on the edge. "That is the core business of the Church", he said. Almost half of the Catholics today are forbidden from approaching the Sacraments, intoned Kiechele, referring to the existence of cohabiting couples or remarried and divorced people.

Whenever I find myself forbidden from approaching the Sacraments I STOP SINNING AND GO TO CONFESSION. Is that really too much to ask? Anyhow it looks like he's redefined "disenfranchised" to mean "willful and unrepentant sinners".

Is it any surprise he's calling for married priests and the ordination of women? The left thinks that's the solution to every problem in the world.

There's a fly in my soup: Ordain women!
I have a cold: we need married priests!
Homosexual priests are abusing minors: marry them to ordained women!
I locked myself out of my car: ordain married women!

Aren't these old hippies dead yet?

I am a graduate of a Jesuit university...

As am I, and in no manner would I consider sending my children to any current Jesuit University. Marquette's recent difficulties in hiring an open homosexual woman as a dean reveled just how thoroughly the gay lifestyle had infected the campus.

I think what he means when he’s talking about “core business” is that the Church’s mission is to serve the poor. That’s true, but what he means is social services to the “marginal” and “disenfranchized”, which as you may or may not know devolves down to sexual minorities as well as people who are legitimately poor.

He’s interested in lowering the bar all across the board and minimalizing things so that all of these marginal people, including women who want to be priestesses, can find fulfillment.

I am also a graduate of Jesuit institutions. I thank God every day that I managed to retain my Faith while running that gauntlet.

I would NEVER send my children to a school run by Jesuits. And given their magnificent history, it pains me greatly to say that.

Jesuits have been a refuge of LIBs since the order’s inception. If there as LIB position vs. a traditional position, you could count on the Jesuits taking the LIBs side.

Apparently, their pride prevents them from following Rule 13: “I will believe that the white that I see is black if the hierarchical Church so defines it”.

It truly is sad, but with few exceptions, the Jesuits since the 60s have become an elitist, prideful group of men. They seem convinced that since they are more brilliant than everyone else, whatever they decide is right is right, and they look, with disdain, on anyone who disagrees.
