I hope this is not an Alberto Cutie situation.

We must keep in mind that we shouldn’t really venture to guess what may actually be wrong. Keep in mind the sins of calumny and detraction in our assessment of the situation.

I would like to know if there was some form of subterfuge, some "conspiracy" to silence him.

But at this point, I do not want to know, if his exit was a result of personal failings on the part of this priest.

I wonder how long it's been since Hudson spoke with Euteneuer?

He did say that he was taking time off. Why not take him at his word? Maybe he’s climbing Everest or helping the Missionaries of Charity in some hellhole and he doesn’t want to be found.

This is very distressing. I hope something terrible has not happened.

I think it has to do with his HLI newsletter post of 5/14/10 (The Hostile Spiritual Takeover of Our Nation) which was a barely disguised accusation that the leadership of this country is under demonic influence.

Mess with the goat get the horns.

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle and in the terrible warfare that we are waging against the principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, against the evil spirits.

There are at least a few individuals who know the whole story, but, right now, they're not willing, or able, to divulge the details. Perhaps they don't want me, or anyone else, to pursue the matter. Well, that doesn't sit well with me.

The author seems to have gotten a little above himself. No, more than a little.

By the way, if anyone wants a copy of Fr. Euteneuer’s book, I have a few new paperbacks left. FReepmail me, if so. I can ship out the book anywhere in the US for $30.

I have been trying to look into this too, via Google and Free Republic. Not much info out there. However, I did find an interesting comment left by someone at the bottom of an article. He states that Father Euteneur was recalled to his Diocese “after a reported controversy”, but no details are given.

Interestingly, the commenter mentioned above also spoke of some sort religious order in the Diocese of Omaha called “The Intercessors of the Lamb”. This order, or group, or whatever, specialized in Deliverance Ministry (praying for - and with - people with demonic problems who don't require a full exorcism), and they were also into the Catholic Charismatic movement.

This group had been around the Diocese for many years. They were at the point where they were requesting that their Bishop grant them full recognition status (or whatever it is called) within their Diocese. They had apparently been on good terms with their previous Bishop(s). However, it seems there was a relatively new Bishop, who had issues with the group (for whatever reason - I do not know if they were valid reasons or not). Hence, rather than “regularizing” the group, he instead began an official investigation of them. The Intercessors of the Lamb then apparently rebelled against the investigators, which caused the Bishop to subsequently suppress and disbanded them. Not quite the outcome the Intercessors were hoping for.

Father Euteneur apparently had friendly relations with the Intercessors of the Lamb in the past, and thought highly of them. Someone mentioned on-line somewhere that he makes favorable mention of the group in his recent book (perhaps both recent books). It seems that this group was suppressed, and Father Enteneur stepped down, at about the same time (relatively speaking). A coincidence perhaps. Who knows?? Perhaps someone else can shed some light upon this.

I have both of Father Euteneurs recent books, and have read them. However, I have not looked back through them to see if they contain references to The Intercessors of the Lamb.

Either way, Father Euteneur’s book is no longer in print. A few outlets have some copies left (Amazon did the last time I checked, but they noted that the book is out of print, and that they had limited copies left). The commenter mentioned above also stated that HLI does not want to be in the business of promoting exorcism. He also states that if the book were to be republished, a few changes would need to be made. Seems odd that a book was published, only to go out of print within a few months of it's publication.

From reading the book “The Rite”, I also know that priests who are exorcists are considered to be oddballs by a large percentage of their fellow priests - who consider themselves to be too enlightened and sophisticated to believe in such outdated rituals. Much of the Catholic Church has been overrun by Liberals, and they don't think too kindly of Conservative, Orthodox priests, much less exorcists. Hence, if Father Euteneur had been getting more and more into exorcism, perhaps this fact got him into some hot water with someone. Again, who knows??

Either way, here is a link to the article with the relevant comment. Look for the comment by a poster named “Tom” on October 17:

In addition, here is a link to an article about the Intercessors of the Lamb being suppressed by their Bishop:

http://www.spiritdaily.com/intercessorsupheaval.htm

All of this is "for what it is worth", which may not be much. It is just what I have found poking around on the Web.

he needs prayers, and unless he comes out and brags about a romantic problem to the press, or he gets charged with stealing, then I would say it’s not really your business.

If he was involved in exorcisms, then it means he has made enemies, so he probably needs prayers...the devil will work hard to get him to “Fall” into sin, and then despair...
