The Heart of a Shepherd

Following the Pope's example the Bishop of Rochester digs in to some cafeteria food.

“In the life of the church today, there are many interpretations that people might give to a particular ruling with no malintent present, but that do need clarification."

Bishop Matano of Rochester NY

  1. Fr. Z is traveling again on the hopeless dupes dime, I suppose. The picture of his seat(?) is suspiciously close to the entry door. Do you think he might be traveling first class?

  2. And all of the trials that the poor thing has with long layovers, blah, blah, blah.
    Are people really so stupid as to send him one dime? Of course, they are. What is that word that he and his toadies say constantly to describe anything that they do not like? Oh, yes: VILE!
    That pretty well sums up his behavior.

  3. He is doing his usual charitable thing of hating on the President.
    That usually bumps up the contributions from the sheep.

  4. Yes, the Brick with Eyes can't help himself to another 'long distance' first class junket, an arduous one this time. Imagine the jet lag after a whole four hours! Bet the Pampered One catches cold too travelling with the unclean.

    It comes as no surprise that the Brick would throw in the line that this diversion to SF for a non speaking engagement. He must have dropped a hint somewhere along the hubris trail that this one was all part of his 'But Father, but Father' Ministry of the Julius II New Evangelization crusade. God knows, California needs it now that hordes of Yemenis and ISIS jihadists have been spotted in vast numbers to the south at the Rio Grande,
    What continues to stand out even more hideously than the Brick's Amazon wishlist is the southward journey of his $barometer. Only half the $s raised so far after the usual month long guilt trips involving the sudden death without Confession and standing with hands out for Communion at a NO Mass scenarios. And only five new suckers signed up to finance the Brick's pretence, dissemblance and crass materialism.
    The Crap Meter is running on the Brick. Give him about one more year......and Francis might have caught up with his 'special assignment ploy and sent him back to his diocese in Italy. That'll test the old obedience thingo .......

    1. He sails across borders so easily that no one will catch up with him long enough to put the stop to his con game. He is quite good at obfuscation. When the question is asked, "What is it you DO, exactly?", he comes up with a new line of baloney and then changes cities/states/countries for a while until the heat is off. Swooping into various places where he has a photo-op with a bishop (always an Opus Dei connected bishop), he has his followers all ga-ga for a while longer.
      No question: he is a slick one.

    2. Zuhlsdorf is a low rent racketeer. HIS vision of the Church of Christ seats him at the head of his own imaginary table. He is a disgusting character gluttonously feeding himself and rapaciously enriching himself on contributions from the REAL Faithful.

      I am immensely enjoying his $$ thermometer dropping. Maybe we here will have the pleasure someday of seeing this corpulent con man decompress and then melt.

  6. Rochester priest friend claims Matano brought his own secretary with him from Vermont because he didn't trust any Rochester priests to be loyal to anyone but Matt Clark. Does that count as clergy lend-lease like going to the Missions or combat pay like chaplains?

    1. According to the Rochester Diocesan Website that claim appears to be fact.

      Though the only picture found comes from VT

      The new Bishop of Rochester seems to be following the Pope's lead either that or he has taken up a part time job to help out...
