Skip to comments.On the dismissal of Fr. Wylie from the New York Archdiocese: Order came "directly from the Cardinal
Posted on 06/11/2014 6:41:02 PM PDT by BlatherNaut
As we reported yesterday (first post here), Fr. Justin Wylie, a South African priest serving as attaché to the Holy See's United Nations Permanent Observer Mission, was dismissed from his regular functions as a priest in the Archdiocese of New York following a sermon on the urgent need for the Archdiocese to send true and sympathetic shepherds to serve (and guide) those who attend the Extraordinary From of the Mass in the Archdiocese.
We can now add that a correspondent of the blog spoke personally to Monsignor Edward Weber, the director of priest personnel for the Archdiocese of New York, regarding the astonishing, unprecedented, and violent dismissal (with letters sent even to his employer, the Holy See's United Nations Permanent Observer mission, and his native diocese). The monsignor told this correspondent that the removal of Fr. Wylie did not go through his office (whose whole purpose is the administration of priestly personnel affairs), but came "directly from the Cardinal's office".
The contrast of how Fr. Wylie was handled with how was considered, for instance, the affair involving another visiting priest, from the Diocese of Oakland, Califonia, could not be greater. Some years ago, this visiting priest from Oakland had been arrested for a lewd act in public in that city (police report - very graphic content).
Yet last fall he was a regular Sunday and weekday celebrant at the Church of Our Saviour in Manhattan. The Church posted this pleasant goodbye on Facebook when he departed:
He was in residence at the nearby parish of Our Lady of the Scapular and St. Stephen, where he gave an Advent workshop. When parishioners learned of his background and complained to the Archdiocese they were told that he was in good standing with his bishop in Oakland and therefore was acceptable to the Archdiocese.
The visiting priest from Oakland did not celebrate the Traditional Mass.
Hmmm... Michael Sam recently gets an ‘atta-boy’ from the good Cardinal... while poor Father Wylie speaks up for beleaguered Latin Mass attendees and gets fired. What’s wrong with this picture?
Same tune, new lyrics, new villain.
We should sit on our checkbooks. Let Dolan go to Obama a begger.
What’s wrong with this picture is that the vast majority—I’m talking all but 12 to 15—of the bishops in America are either pro-abortion or too cowardly for anyone to tell that they’re personally opposed to abortion. A huge portion of them are personally sexually active. Most of them are still Democrats. A significant number of them are hard-core Communist/Fascist. A far larger number are just morons who think a “soft” Leftism is just being “nice” and “Christian.”
The Pope is a moron. He is the most unqualified man to be elected Pope in two or three centuries, I’m guessing. Our country, and the West, are being dismantled by the same people who SET UP Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Margaret Sanger, and Obama, and we get baby talk out of the Pope.
Nothing wrong with diverting donations to a worthier cause.
"Hamed Abdel-Samad, a living in Germany islam critical political scientist and author has posted on his Facebook page on Sunday following entry: In the Garden of the Vatican, the Muslim clergy concludes his prayer with the verse: May Allah help us to victory against the infidels ! I call that a prayer for peace! "
That’s the plan . . . with a note in the envelope letting them know where their weekly donation went. It’s too bad, actually. Myles Murphy’s not to blame . . . but his boss is.
