Boston pastor praised by Cardinal O’Malley puts Holy Family on par with homosexual couples
Boston Catholic Insider ^ | 1/6/14 | Boston Catholic Insider

Posted on 01/06/2014 8:05:40 PM PST by BlatherNaut

The pastor of St. Catherine of Siena parish in Norwood, MA, Msgr. Paul Garrity, published a letter in his bulletin last weekend that puts the Holy Family at parity with families that have two mothers and two fathers. Incidentally, Cardinal O’Malley had commended this same pastor months earlier for his focus on promoting Catholic education. This is yet another example of the ongoing problem of Cardinal O’Malley and his senior staff coddling pastors who promote homosexuality.

So much is wrong here that we hardly know where to start, but we will focus on these topics:

Heresy by the pastor and insult to the Blessed Virgin Mary and Holy Family by his message Other moral shortcomings of his message The pastor’s refusal to respond to complaints made by parishioners that have been escalated to Aux. Bishop Walter Edyvean, and Negligent episcopal leadership by Cardinal O’Malley in this situation Heresy by the pastor and insult to the Blessed Virgin Mary and Holy Family

This is just filth. If some Russian priest said this, you can bet Patriarch Kirill would immediately denounce him and throw him out of the Church.

The “Smoke of Satan” has truly taken over the Catholic Church—with this anti-pope, so it seems. We will know him by his “fruits”. I have been waiting for this pope to purge the ranks of the Cardinals and Bishops of the homosexuals who infiltrated as Bella Dodd stated in her book which was published and then she was murdered.

Fr. Oko’s report is worth reading. People who have a “homosexual” worldview are incapable of being Catholic clergy. They should be kicked out. They are warped in the way they look at human beings—both women and men—and it is too sexually challenging for them living in close contact with young men.

It is like women and men being housed together, using the same bathrooms/sleeping quarters. It can’t work-—for celibacy which is necessary for the priesthood.

Very evil times we live in....very evil. (I highly recommend reading Fr. Oko’s report on “Homoheresy” which was commissioned by the Vatican during Pope Benedict’s papacy. It goes into the psychology, etc.

I hope he gets lots of calls. The parish school was well-known for its orthodoxy before Cardinal O’Malley installed this pastor to “wreckovate” it. Unfortunately that appears to be the pattern.

BTDT. Unfortunately complaints fall on deaf ears. The best option is to take your money and run.

Read it and agree. The damage they have wrought is enormous.

Here is what the namesake of the parrish said our Lord had to say to her regarding such:

“They [the homosexuals] not only fail from resisting the weakness [of fallen human nature] .... but they do even worse when they commit the cursed sin against nature. Like the blind and stupid, having dimmed the light of their understanding, they do not recognize the disease and misery in which they find themselves. For this not only causes Me nausea, but is disgusting even to the devils themselves whom these depraved creatures have chosen as their lords.

For Me this sin against nature is so abominable that for it alone five cities were destroyed by virtue of the judgment of My Divine Justice, which could no longer bear their iniquity ....

It is disgusting to the devils not because evil displeases them or because they find pleasure in good, but rather because their nature is angelic and flees upon seeing such a repulsive sin being committed. For while certainly it is the devil that first strikes the sinner with the poisoned arrow of concupiscence, nonetheless when a man actually carries out such a sinful act, the devil goes away.”

(St. Catherine of Siena, El diálogo,
in Obras de Santa Catalina de Siena, Madrid: BAC, 1991, p. 292)

Itr's interesting that Testem Benevolentiae Nostrae was sent to the Archbishop of Baltimore and here after decades of pretending there's no such thing as "Americanism" it's obviously still running amok in Baltimore.

From Testem Benevolentiae Nostrae :

The underlying principle of these new opinions is that, in order to more easily attract those who differ from her, the Church should shape her teachings more in accord with the spirit of the age and relax some of her ancient severity and make some concessions to new opinions. Many think that these concessions should be made not only in regard to ways of living, but even in regard to doctrines which belong to the deposit of the faith. They contend that it would be opportune, in order to gain those who differ from us, to omit certain points of her teaching which are of lesser importance, and to tone down the meaning which the Church has always attached to them. It does not need many words, beloved son, to prove the falsity of these ideas if the nature and origin of the doctrine which the Church proposes are recalled to mind. The Vatican Council says concerning this point: "For the doctrine of faith which God has revealed has not been proposed, like a philosophical invention to be perfected by human ingenuity, but has been delivered as a divine deposit to the Spouse of Christ to be faithfully kept and infallibly declared. Hence that meaning of the sacred dogmas is perpetually to be retained which our Holy Mother, the Church, has once declared, nor is that meaning ever to be departed from under the pretense or pretext of a deeper comprehension of them." - Constitutio de Fide Catholica, Chapter iv.

We cannot consider as altogether blameless the silence which purposely leads to the omission or neglect of some of the principles of Christian doctrine, for all the principles come from the same Author and Master, "the Only Begotten Son, Who is in the bosom of the Father."- John i, I8. They are adapted to all times and all nations, as is clearly seen from the words of our Lord to His apostles: "Going, therefore, teach all nations; teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all days, even to the end of the world." - Matt. xxviii, 19. Concerning this point the Vatican Council says: "All those things are to be believed with divine and catholic faith which are contained in the Word of God, written or handed down, and which the Church, either by a solemn judgment or by her ordinary and universal magisterium, proposes for belief as having been divinely revealed." - Const. de fide, Chapter iii.

Let it be far from anyone's mind to suppress for any reason any doctrine that has been handed down. Such a policy would tend rather to separate Catholics from the Church than to bring in those who differ. There is nothing closer to our heart than to have those who are separated from the fold of Christ return to it, but in no other way than the way pointed out by Christ.

Apparently the nonexistent heresy of Americanism is actually the life's blood of a great many faithless members of the Church hierarchy in this country.

JMHO

Who do you mean, Cardinal O'Malley or Monsignor Garrity? I don't know what calling the latter would accomplish, since I have no connection to that parish. I do have friends who were driving their children a considerable distance to attend the parish school before the "lavender mafia" coup d'etat became apparent, but no more. Unfortunately the lavender mafia has been very much empowered under Cardinal O'Malley.

One of the supposed reasons Benedict XVI stepped down was to allow Francis during the interim to dismiss the homosexualphiles within the Vatican "civil service" and start new. Seems Francis I has not done this.

Your appeals to call those responsible for such madness and heresy will go unanswered. The Roman Catholic church has within the gates the agents of Satan working overtime. The assault is happening within. Of which Cicero had to say:

"“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”---Cicero

Here are the heretical babblings of another of the Pope's Gang o' Eight:

The Second Vatican Council was the main event in the Church in the 20th Century. In principle, it meant an end to the hostilities between the Church and modernism, which was condemned in the First Vatican Council. On the contrary: neither the world is the realm of evil and sin –these are conclusions clearly achieved in Vatican II—nor is the Church the sole refuge of good and virtue. Modernism was, most of the time, a reaction against injustices and abuses that disparaged the dignity and the rights of the person. Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga.

Francis did a great job picking his "top" shepherds.
