DONNA NOBIS PACEM: Wherein Fr D Warns of Social Media Dangers!

You know I don't get out much.

Between saying the Office, walking the dog, tending to the bees and the garden, baking altar breads, stringing rosaries for the missions and plaiting disciplines for the growing number of Traditional-Orders-(and-more-and-more-Oratories)-of-one-or-two that count on my expertise with that rare craft . . .

So in my free time it's just me and the computer, which means I've been able to introduce you to Blogging Fruitcakes galore: the anti-Francis freaks of RetRorate, Fr ZZ (top), the anti-every-Pope-but-Benedict XVI (even though he required her absolute ordination) Rev. Mother M. John Cunniwicke, the bow-tied dear olde things of The New Liturgical (Bowel) Movement and of the sodomy-obsessed Blogger-in-the-Closet-in-Chief Mundaboor.

But just the other day, I discovered a FaceBook Fruitcake!

Everyone's warning us of the dangers of Social Media.

Who knew that a principal casualty could be your ecclesiastical career?!?!?!?

Case in point: imagine being pastor of one of the largest parishes in the Archdiocese, and Director of Liturgy for the Archdiocese, and posting THIS about your newly-appointed Archbishop?





OH DONNA NOBIS PACEM!

  1. It surprises me just how many priests are still openly hostile to the boss's policies. Gee.. Exactly why would Fisher be wearing a pectoral cross that is similar to Pope Francis? Perhaps because Fisher despite being a Pell lackey is smart enough to figure out what Francis expects.

  2. I (and I don't think I'm alone) would be thrilled (and pleasantly surprised) to see my Bishop wearing a cross that shows the Good Shepherd carrying home the lost sheep and the signal that he gets what Pope Francis is teaching by his own example. I was struck by the number of young people who showed up at Bishop Fisher's press conference and very impressed at seeing them crowd around him to take a selfie, the young generation's most unaffected sign that they like somebody. That didn't look like anyone's lackey to me. Could it be that being on his own in his own diocese, and quite obviously having acquired the smell of the sheep, he returns to Sydney as his own man, the Pope's brother in spirit and a Good Shepherd? Good for him and good for Sydney.

  3. What's the problem with the Good Shepherd image anyhow? Isn't that his role?

  4. Yes.. It isn't shiny enough and this priest is attracted to shiny objects with precious stones.

    As for ZZZ, I have to be amused by the fact that his bestie Bishop Finn is being investigated by Pope Francis. Apparently, he must have been curled up eating cookie dough ice cream when he heard about it because he didn't post for a day but gladly he rallied and threw up red over Cardinal Kasper's latest interview. Yes, I'd like to see that open debate because I think that they'd call it because of the Little League mercy rule. Kasper has forgotten more today than Zzz has learned.

  5. Furthermore, Lacy Boy is grinding his choppers and wringing his paws at the sight of 'The Book' being sold off in a fire sale at 25% discount and it looks like the print run will be as small as Z's IQ.

  6. Realistically, who the hell did they think was going to buy that book? You know what their arguments are without reading it, and even at 25 percent off its outrageously overpriced. I smell a rat--some rich conservative Catholic gave Joseph "All my fellow Dominicans have AIDS" Fessio a pile of money to pay for it.

  7. In my diocese, we have many presbyters like this Fr Donald. We have a term for them, I think it must be Gaelic: Douchebags

  8. An Duasbagh is the the root.

  9. Fr. Fessio is a Jesuit, not a Dominican.

  10. This Fr Richardson's facebook page is literally sick-making. His narcissism makes Fr Zzzzz look positively normal by comparison. And at least Zzzzz is confined to a sort of virtual ministry, while this guy has been let loose on a parish. Lord, have mercy on us all.

  11. May he have a long and FRUIT-ful ministry picking out pectoral crosses he will NEVER wear.

  12. Yes Ron does sound rather precious. This is a similar type of baggage his new boss brings to Pell's old Cathedra. +Fisher is carries the nickname 'Boy George' after his mentor.
