McCarrick to sodomite priest and his 'partner', 'God bless you both!'

From THE STAR-LEDGER ...

Gargiulo said McCarrick told him he wanted him back as a priest, but that he would have to be celibate. Gargiulo told McCarrick he would not return.

"I said to him, 'I have to tell you that my partner is in the outer office, and if you'd like to come and meet him that would be fine, and if you don't, I understand that completely.'

"He said 'Oh no, I'll come out and meet him.' He came out, he shook his hand, he was very nice. He said, 'Mariano's worked very hard for us for many years, and you take care of him. And God bless you both.'

"I have to say, he's a gentleman. He truly is."

A gentleman? High praise perhaps from one with a disordered sexuality. But NOT a bishop who is a true shepherd of souls or cares about their salvation.

I hope Pope Benedict accepts h is resignation right away--perhaps he is waiting to see if there is a worthy shepherd to name to the post?

This could take a while...

Well let me tell you this. They are both going to hell, Archbishop Myers did the right thing in excommunicating him. I know I would have not accepted his resignation, I would have made his life hell and that would have been in a rectory with me until further notice and hubby would have left the pastoral center alone. The bishops can control the sodomites and keep a thumb on them if he so called chooses. A shepard cares about the souls in his care and does not let them leave for any reason. I would say that this priest is in violation of canon law 1041-1 and 1041-3. Archbishop Myers has that right to excommunicate him. CCC 2348,2357-59 are the 3 refereces that are supportive to the priesthood.Remember he chose to become a pagan, for protesants are pagans they are automatically heading to hell unless they repent and convert. He chose to leave because he could not control himself, check the kids in the places he served.

I agree with the comments here: it is stunning the indifference which these modernist prelates show towards the salvation of souls.

Or worse, perhaps, they're acting on what they believe which is that we'll all be all right in the end anyway-- so why make a big fuss about it? We should help each other to be happy.

Seriously, it wouldn't be easy to be a bishop or archbishop, and to have to find the right tone and message to strike in warning unrepentant sinners. But guys like McCarrick, wow, I've got to think that saving souls, in any traditional sense, is not even on their radar screen.

Since I go to Mass in DC I was really hoping this was a joke.

bobnd, you are rather naive if you think you can stop someone from quiting. The priest wasn't asking to leave, he was telling McCarrick he was leaving!
