SIGH OF RELIEF OR RELIEVING THEMSELVES






Well, it's both really. They've been relieving themselves -
spewing their anti-Francis crap - in post after frantic post, day after disconcerting day since even before the Synod began ... Indeed since about a half hour after the Holy Father was elected; and now we hear - in between the snarky snipes and slander that, apparently, are part of the alleged "Anglican Patrimony" - a giant sigh of relief.

For a while, there, what with bishops discussing - not deciding by a show of hands, mind you, but just discussing - living the Christian life in a challenging world, and with (shudder) non-ontologically transformed paying customers (aka laity) actually being invited to speak and even being appreciatively listened to by bishops ... Ye gads but it was beginning to look and sound a lot like the Church these panicked clergy had left, a Church that just didn't appreciate their brilliance .....

So, lucky us ... The married ex-Anglicans who hate Pope
Francis are all ours ... for now. End of discussion.

Meaning as long as there's no more discussion ....



Because if real life pastoral issues start to be discussed again ... yes even just discussed ... Look for the panic to resume. Meanwhile, count on the venom ... it's just a charming part of that great heritage with which they're mutually enriching us.

Of course if Mundabor's voodoo doll novena fails and Francis lives and prospers, I guess there's bad news and good news for our ex-Anglican "treasures". Bad news: SSPX would never take a priest with a wife, even if it's just an Anglo-Catholic style clergy "marriage" (nod nod wink wink). That's just being good old open minded non black and white Rome being nice ... But most of you guys are into facial hair and dress up: there's always the Orthodox Church!  (SURPRISE! Onion Domes!)

  1. Father, I followed you link to Cu*twinker's blog to see what this was all about. I found one cogent sentence in the post here:

    "Cardinal Ratzinger's insistence that the Pope is but the humble servant of Tradition had me raising my glass to drink his toast. (Indeed, during his Pontificate I was rarely sober.)"

    To the extent I have the stomach for it, I have read Hunwicke's flog looking for some hint of humility or decency, some acknowledgment that the work of Christ has to come into play in the lives of these clergy and the existence of this church, but have come up empty time and time again.

    Rub a dub dub,
    Three fools in a tub,
    And who do you think they be?
    The glutton, the drunkard,
    The bit red caped tosser.
    Turn them out, knaves all three.

    The Graft Zeppelin, still looming on Roman holiday, feels comforted by Benedict's "stemma" on the church of St. Athanasius.
    Furthermore, he looks like he's trying to rally his lemmings to the PXies. A PXie reparation for some "Black Mass" held somewhere in Oklahoma?? Who cares? Oh, wait: it's one costume ball following another, of course.
    Tuna for lunch? For shame!

  3. This bunch and their black capes. They saw "Dracula" too many times as children.

  4. Yes, what the hell is with the weird capes and bizarre hats? Listening to all their bitching and moaning, you have to conclude that they saw the Catholic Church as some place where (increasingly under John Paul and Benedict and, they must have thought, permanently) it was dress-up time, no questions to ask, no controversies to be tolerated, and it scares the shit out of them to think that their fantasy Church may be vanishing before their eyes. That Orthodox Church alternative makes a lot of sense. Lots of dress up and plenty of never-ending clerical infighting.

  5. Whoa check this out from GlobalPulse Magazine
    http://www.globalpulsemagazine.com/news/retired-pope-breaks-silence-and-encourages-catholics-attached-to-tridentine-mass-and-anglican-ordinariate/250

    Those that stayed back in Rome went to an 11 a.m. Mass at Rome’s designated “extraordinary rite” church (where the rector is an Australian), too late and too far away to make it to the Angelus. Fr Richard Cipolla, a married and former Episcopalian priest from the United States, preached at that Mass. He said Pope Francis’ now famous response to a question about gays – “Who am I to judge?” – was “a denial of truth in matters of morality,” and added that it “lies at the heart of this drive to change the Church’s moral teaching in the name of more merciful pastoral practice”. Fr Cipolla then went further and said it was actually a “denial” of doctrine that led to, “at best, liberal Protestantism or, at worst, the individualism of secularism”.

    Isn't accusing the Pope of heresy kind of significant? Is this Cipolla guy in the Ordinariates thing or maybe he is SSPX or what?

    1. The "emeritus" Pope created this mess. It disappoints me that he didn't maintain a modicum of class in keeping his mouth SHUT.

      This Cipolla guy belongs unemployed.

  6. I thought Cipolla+ was a Latin rite cleric who teaches Latin and Greek at some fancy school. I understand that he used to play the organ at the Epiphany in Providence.

  7. Antony Cipolla was involuntarily laicised by JP2 in 2002 following a series of CSA claims. However, he continues to practice as an independent traditionalist priest. If it was him that preached at the mass on sunday then they've made a serious mistake.

    1. Wrong Cipolla. Anthony was laicised. Richard Cipolla remains a married former Episcopalian minister turned Catholic Priest residing in the Diocese of Bridgeport CT as parochial vicar at St Mary's Norwalk.

    2. Richard Cipolla is married! Well, knock me down with a maniple fringe as I would have thought him 'not the marrying kind'.

    3. As if he would be the first priest to marry a beard.

    4. Someone said of the Ordinariate shindig they had a while back: "The most beards I've seen in one place since the Oscars!"

  8. I had to take some Prilosec after viewing all of the crap that lacy-boy has consumed while in Rome.
    He had better lay off all of that. The pic with him and the lady at the grocery store shows that he is developing jowls like Wally the walrus. He might want to consider a bread and water fast during Advent.
