Developments & Reactions

This post continues our coverage of the ongoing ecclesiastical Chernobyl unleashed by the accusations of the former Vatican nuncio to the United States, “Abp.” Carlo Viganò, which were first published on Aug. 25 and have the potential not only to bring an end to the Francis “pontificate” but even to throw the entire Vatican II Sect into unprecedented chaos:

Thursday, Sep. 13, 2018 Developments

In his homily for the day, Francis delivered Part 2 of his “Great Accuser” theme — video report here

Argentinian expert on Jorge Bergoglio, Dr. Antonio Caponnetto, says “What Abp. Viganò said about Bergoglio is the absolute truth”

Francis receives “Cardinals” Daniel DiNardo and Sean O’Malley to discuss abuse crisis — brief video here Statement released by USCCB following meeting with Francis

Photograph of DiNardo/O’Malley meeting with Francis released by Vatican News shows everybody laughing

“Cardinal” Timothy Dolan of New York, New York, has called the current sex abuse crisis “nauseating” and “diabolical”

Dolan has also said that his own mother is now “embarrased to be Catholic” (with video)

During his August trip to Dublin, Francis told Jesuits that one reason for the sex abuse drama is that “elitist and clericalist” clergy have not been “near to the people of God”

Francis has accepted the resignation of “Bp.” Michael Bransfield of Wheeling-Charleston, West Virginia, and asked “Abp.” William Lori of Baltimore, Maryland, to start an investigation into allegations of misconduct Reactions from select Blogs and Web Sites

Church Militant‘s Bradley Eli explains why ‘Archbishop Lori [is] untrustworthy’

A Novus Ordo blogger says Lori investigating the diocese formerly headed by Bransfield is ‘the fox guarding the hen house’

Vaticanist John Allen explains why he believes that ‘Francis’s child protection summit may be highest-stakes gamble of his papacy’

Writing for Catholic Herald, “Fr.” Mark Drew opines that “Archbishop Viganò has sparked a revolution no one can control”

The Belfast Telegraph‘s Martin O’Brien says that the fallout from the Vigano Testimony is “nothing less than a battle for the soul of the Catholic Church”

America‘s Gerard O’Connell says “Abp.” Vigano ought to come out of hiding and face questions from the press

At the National Review, Michael Brendan Dougherty gives an overview: ‘The Catholic crisis as it stands now’

Blogger Steven O’Reilly believes “there will be some interesting revelations to come forth about the last conclave in the wake of Viganó’s accusations and the McCarrick scandal”

T Y 4 posting. Bookmarked for later, but the first link I chose: https://romalocutaest.com/2018/09/13/of-mccarrick-and-past-and-future-conclaves/ was very interesting, and well written.

(excerpt) “Viganò’s testimonial asserted that Sodano played a key role in defending Marcial Maciel, the founder of the Legionaries of Christ who was later revealed to be a serial sexual abuser. The archbishop speculated that “if Sodano had protected Maciel, as seems certain, there is no reason why he wouldn’t have done so for McCarrick, who according to many had the financial means to influence decisions.”

No evidence, or even firsthand knowledge is presented by Viganò for this supposition, though McCarrick’s abilities as a prolific fundraiser were well-known.

While McCarrick was able to produce sizable donations for everything from the Papal Foundation to individual projects in dioceses around the world, the financial support he offered could also be quite personal.

“When he would visit Rome, Cardinal McCarrick was well-known for handing out envelopes of money to different bishops and cardinals around the curia to thank them for their work,” a curial cardinal recently told CNA. “Where these ‘honoraria’ came from or what they were for, exactly, was never clear – but many accepted them anyway.”

What’s with the quotes around “Abp” Vigano? Does Novus Ordo Watch claim that Vigano isn’t really an archbishop? If so, it makes Novus Ordo Watch seem like a crackpot organization.

“Moral corruption does not cause loss of office, only heresy does that.”

From what on that page am I supposed to understand why “Abp” is in quotes?

They’re sedevacantists who think that all ordinations under the revised Missal are invalid. If they were self-consistent, they would refer to him as “Fr Vignano,” since he was ordained to the priesthood in 1968.

Except the article’s author *is* consistent. He is addressing these men as the Novus Ordo church addresses them: Cardinal, Archbishop, Bishop, etc. If the Novus Ordo church referred to Vigano as “Fr”, he would have kept the title (without the quotes).

They are indeed a “crackpot organization.” Extremist and untrustworthy, spreading error and confusion.

Thanks for sharing the introibo blog. I did not know of its existence.

I have no problem with Catholic doctrine. My discomfort is over a tiny group of miscreants who claim Church patriarchy and tradition for themselves, always bitter and whining about religion, venomously tearing down their co-religionists, uneducated yet always acting superior, who are so untouched by faith they cannot distinguish between Catherine of Siena and Ann Barnhardt, and thinking they are assured heaven because they make the Sign of the Cross at the perfect angle with the precise number of fingers touching the forehead. If a person is a self-centered, vain, nitpicking fool, the fault is his, not the Vatican 2 Council.

Of course you have problem with “extremist” and true Catholic doctrine about the Jews. You just displayed it. And because you do, you also have a problem with the Catholic hierarchy that taught it prior to Vatican II. Your name calling and ad hominems towards others do not change those facts.
