Skip to comments.'Conformist’ Younger Clergy Wary of Francis – Dublin Archbishop
Posted on 08/05/2014 5:00:27 PM PDT by marshmallow
Pope Francis courage is causing disquiet among those with a very conformist and closed Catholicism the Archbishop of Dublin has warned.
In a speech given in Melbourne, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin referred to a young curate who recently told his parish priest he was not at all happy with some things the Pope had said.
The young priest felt they were not in line with what he had learned in the seminary and he suggested that they were making the faithful insecure and even encouraging those who do not hold the orthodox Catholic beliefs to challenge traditional teaching.
The archbishop warned conservative and progressive Catholics against becoming closed in within our own ideas. He also acknowledged that Irish Catholicism had a strong tradition of strict teaching.

it is his “courage” that worries them
no bias there
Diarmuid Martin is horrible, and IIRC, he was nearly removed by BXVI.
They are so locked into a past model of priesthood he commented and said this manifested itself in the way that they dress up, the way they celebrate Mass, and in their views.
Translation: the few who actually become priests are.....faithful Catholics and not part of the lavender mafia social justice crew and its scaring the old CINO dinosaurs.
Just as its hard to get used to Poland being in NATO and Germany being one nation...its hard to get used to the idea that its the older priests that are actually the problem. They went to seminary in the 60's and 70's while todays priests benefitted from John Paul and Benedict's cleaning house and tossing out the homosexuals and socialists.
The episcopate is irreformable. Rome has stuffed it with too many morons, Commies, and sodomites. They observe a code of absolute silence about one another’s scandals, crimes, and heresies.
Does the Pope have the “courage” to pick up the phone and tell Cardinals Wuerl, Dolan, O’Malley, and Archbishops Chaput and Gomez to stop committing the mortal sin of giving Communion to pro-abortion “Catholics”? No.
Talk about “conformists”!
Yes, how dare any priest actually want to be a true priest?
