  • Cardinal Wuerl Honored Gay-Promoting Priest On Good Friday [Catholic Caucus]

    Cardinal Wuerl Honored Gay-Promoting Priest On Good Friday I believe him when he says Cardinal Wuerl invited him to St. Matthew's to preach. We might ask "why"? The question is rhetorical. Cardinal Wuerl and Father Martin clearly think very much alike on key doctrinal and moral issues. If they didn't, the Cardinal would never have asked him to preach at his Cathedral.

    Cardinal Wuerl Trips Over Himself While Celebrating Amoralis Lamentia Amoris Laetitia One year ago today, the world was scourged with Amoralis Lamentia, a piece of pig poop that has already cast doubts upon the teachings of Jesus Christ Himself, leading to the peril of many souls and most likely the damnation of more than a few who have passed to their judgments during this past year. Many of us have been sounding the alarm regarding this spiritual poison while its shills have been "circling the wagons" around Amoralis Lamentia as they attempt to put some lipstick on that pig.  One...

    Catholic Culture ^ | March 8, 2017 | Phil Lawler
    A very small number of people, whose voices have been amplified by some of the Catholic media, have challenged the integrity of Pope Francis’ post-synodal apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia. Thus does Cardinal Donald Wuerl begin an essay defending the papal document—and, far more pointedly, attacking its critics. Let’s take a look. Right from the outset, Cardinal Wuerl belittles those who disagree with him, claiming that they constitute “a very small number of people.” That is inaccurate, of course; many thousands of people have been disconcerted by Amoris Laetitia. But even if it were true, wouldn’t a good shepherd show more...

    America Magazine ^ | March 6, 2017 | Gerard O'Connor
    Reconnecting the church “with the energy of the Second Vatican Council,” may be the pope’s greatest achievement, Cardinal Donald Wuerl of the Archdiocese of Washington said in an exclusive interview with America as the fourth anniversary of the pope’s election approaches on March 13. According to Cardinal Wuerl, the pope is changing the papacy and “completely refocusing the role of bishop.” He said Pope Francis has “picked up where we left off” on Vatican II themes of collegiality and synodality and has refocused the church on “a moral theology that rests on scripture and Jesus’ command to love” and on...

    Cardinal Donald Wuerl says what bothers him about reaction to 'Amoris Laetitia,' the pope's document on the family, is that some can't see beyond the canonical dimension of things, as if it were "the only aspect of the mission Christ has entrusted to his Church for the salvation of souls." [Editor’s note: Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, who participated in the two Synods of bishops on marriage and the family that preceded Pope Francis’s 2016 apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia (“The Joy of Love”), responded via email to questions on the papal document from Mark Zimmermann, the national correspondent for Crux...

    I confess I laughed when I read the interview. Let's face it. To whom do you think Cardinal Wuerl speaks? Do you think he's spending a lot of time outside his chancery speaking to the ordinary people of the diocese or is his contact with them from the window of his lavish apartment on embassy row?

    Archbishop Blaise Cupich of Chicago ranks as one of the most progressive (if not heretical) bishops in the United States. His disdain for Catholic morality is all-too-well known. To wit: As bishop of Spokane Washington he forbade his priests from participating in the 40 Days for Life campaign. When the Supreme Court passed a ruling on "gay mowwidge", the statement he uttered was, at best, limp-wristed lip service to marriage. He issued a statement claiming that gun control and immigration are equal in importance to baby-slaughter. He advocates violations of Canon 915. Despite all these serious and blatant shortcomings, the...

    CFN intro: Leftist Cupich is notoriously pro-homosexual. He is now positioned by Francis to recommend men of his ilk to become bishops in the United States. The Francis disaster continues full throttle and will further poison the Church in America and worldwide. Oremus - jv Crux Staff, July 7, 2016 By naming Archbishop Blase Cupich of Chicago to the Vatican's all-important Congregation for Bishops, Pope Francis effectively has positioned him, in tandem with Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C., to be the American "kingmakers" on this pope's watch. Pope Francis on Thursday named Archbishop Blase Cupich of Chicago to the...

    Pope Francis has named Archbishop Blase Cupich of Chicago a member of the Congregation for Bishops. The Congregation’s members, whether curial prelates or diocesan bishops like Archbishop Cupich (who remains Archbishop of Chicago), assist the Congregation’s prefect and secretary in making recommendations to the Pope for the appointment of bishops in non-mission Latin-rite dioceses. The appointment of Archbishop Cupich gives him considerable influence in the selection of new bishops, especially for the US. The Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples recommends the appointment of bishops in mission territories; members of curial congregations automatically cease to be so at the age...

    Catholic League ^ | 20 Nov 2015 | Bill Donohue
    The crazies on the Catholic right have set their sights on Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington. Why? Because he is close to Pope Francis, and they hate the pope. The attacks are coming from The Church Militant, a loose gang of angry right-wingers who specialize in character assassination, and American Spectator hater George Neumayr. Three recent hit pieces by Church Militant author Christine Niles set the agenda. She says “today’s archbishop of Washington owns a penthouse in a complex valued at $43 million.” That is a lie. He owns not a centimeter of his third-floor “penthouse,” an apartment that...

    When I use the word "dissenter" I mean those who willfully deviate from the Traditions of the Catholic Church as handed down through the centuries. Two striking examples were made disgustingly evident today. The first came from Cardinal Wuerl, in the publication of two interviews he gave after the sin-nod ended. One was given to America magazine (and expounded upon by Vox Cantoris), the other was published by Religion News Service. I am not going into a comprehensive analysis of these interviews, else we'd be here for hours. It's clear that he is feeling emboldened by this pontificate to flaunt...

    The on-again, off-again status of a Final Report is still up in the air. However, today it was announced that there will be a Final Report. So, we are “on” again. UPDATE: HEREAlso, concerning the 13 Cardinals Letter™, as I understand things now, Tornielli broke the news. Sandro Magister had a source for the text but without names. He got names from someone else, but made a few mistakes and/or used information that was not verified. So, some names of Cardinals are right, some are wrong.___ ORIGINAL Published on: Oct 12, 2015 @ 12:06You should start with Andrea Gagliarducci’s wrap...

    WASHINGTON — The District’s top Catholic leader has weighed in on the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage. “The law of the land is the law of the land,” says Archbishop of Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl. “We certainly follow what the law says. That doesn’t mean we change the word of God. That doesn’t mean we change the scriptures, or the church’s millennia-long tradition of what marriage is.” Everyone is welcome to the faith, Wuerl says: “Nobody is turned away because of their sexual identity, because of their race because of their ethnic background. And are we not all...

    The current trend of combining religion, business, governments around the globe, and the radical Climate “church” should be concerning to anyone who values liberty. The dangers of Agenda 21’s push for worldwide Sustainable Development is well documented. Though the dangers of the radical green agenda have been trumpeted by many, including Glenn Beck, their warnings seem to have fallen on deaf ears even among those who surround the his holiness, the Pope.

    Ah, words! How powerful they are with the simple! How many of the latter there are! Cardinal Wuerl has now made clear what the strategy of the Modernist faction (led by TMAHICH) against orthodox Catholics (factually led by the SSPX, and by Cardinal Burke in the Conciliar camp) in the months leading to October will be: comparing them to “dissenters”. Wuerl's aim is transparent enough: leveraging on the love for orthodoxy of your common Catholic to create an aura of rebellion around those who defend Catholic orthodoxy, whilst letting the heretics appear orthodox because the Pope sides with them.

    According to the Archbishop of Washington, the recent Synod on the Family worked to address the challenge that many young people today don’t fully understand the nature of marriage. “There were a good number of us within the synod who felt, given the heavily secular climate today in which so many of our young people are living – what they see in media, television, electronic print, in movies, the music they listen to, the world they’re engaged in – (that) the idea of a permanent, enduring bond that would be life-giving and at the same time be indissoluble is not...

    The Vatican just announced that Pope Francis has named six additional prelates to help write the revised relatio for the Synod of Bishops, to be released Monday. At the risk of oversimplifying, they all seem to be on the pope’s wavelength when it comes to promoting pastoral mercy. They will assist Cardinal Peter Erdo, the primary drafter of the relatio, and two other synod officials, in the task of summing up the first week of spirited synod debate in a document that will form the basis for future discussion. Sources in Rome view the revised relatio as the key document...

    A shockingly blunt title indeed. But as entirely predictable events unfold in the New Synod Hall—wherein, we are told, all things will be made new—why should we bother with nuance? After all, we have a Pope who is no friend of nuance and whose intentions could not have been more crudely expressed over the past eighteen months of astonishing insults and denigration of practically all the elements of apostolic and ecclesiastical tradition. Francis has clearly been preparing for this moment since the day of his election, if not before, and now it has arrived in all its inglorious splendor. Beneath...
