"Kansas City, here I come!"

Have you read about Bishop Robert Finn, the new ordinary of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph in Missouri, and the house-cleaning he is doing there? Click on the title of this post to access a long article about him in the new issue of the National Catholic "Distorter."

When you read this article, you will find yourself exulting in more than a few places. Bishop Finn's house-cleaning of entrenched "liberal" personnel and programs sounds like a model for every orthodox and pro-life bishop to follow.

Let us pray for Bishop Finn, and for the naming of bishops like him in every diocese, including Los Angeles!

Ditto to your post I thought the same thing. we should ask him to provide a blueprint on how he went about with the house cleaning. I could not help myself from really laughing out loud when I was reading the article from national catholic rejector. Serves the liberals "right" they do nothing but destroy the church.

The whine was almost audible in the story in the 'distorter'. I have to admit cheering to myself.

I sent both an e-mail and a snail mail to the bishop to thank him for his faithfulness and will pray for his strength and courage to continue.

Can more such men be found? god willing!

Mahony, move over! You've done way too much damage. Make way for a true shepherd of the likes of Bishop Finn.

The poor bishop who will eventually come to L.A. (may it be soon!). What a mess he will have to clean up.

I noticed that Mahony's episcopal motto is: TO RECONCILE GOD'S PEOPLE. What a laugh! It should rather be:
TO WRECK GOD'S PEOPLE, because this is what this pathetic man has done all these years in the Archdiocese of Los
Angeles.

Yeeee Hawwww!

Don't give up: praying, fasting, offering sacrifices. It's beginning to look like the Lord's womb isn't closed to us after all!!!!!!!
Here's a greeting we used to say to each other before the modernization of the likes of Hizz Eminence got into power. It's a greeting that was in use by both laity and clergy:

V. PRAISED BE JESUS CHRIST.
R.MAY HE ALWAYS BE PRAISED

Bishop Finn is only 53 years old, and I am adding him to my short list of hopefuls for Los Angeles when Mahony is finally sent packing.

It's a prayer list, by the way!

I would not wish Mahony's mess (L.A. Archdiocese) on anyone.

If Bishop Finn was appointed here, he would need all the prayer and support that is humanly possible.

This is my first comment on this blog. I had a fantasy recently that came to me unbidden. Cardinal Mahoney was being led out of the chancery, quietly but firmly, perhaps by an angel in man's garb. He was told he was no longer a Church prelate and must make way for a true shepherd. He was permitted to take with him only personal items. He was escorted to an ordinary house and required to begin to live life as a private person, to maintain his own residence, to look after his own daily needs, to acquire employment for his sustenance, to make his own way. No longer for him the adulation of the wealthy and powerful. No longer for him living as a potentate, dining beautifully and living in splendor through the underserved efforts of others. No, he has not deserved these honors, this life. He has been a fraud and a counterfeit prince of the Church, and is now being made to step down and step aside for a genuine shepherd, for the good of souls. No longer are those souls to be disrespected, disdained, denied true spiritual leadership, kindness, and genuine support in the only thing that matters ... working out their salvation. He has been a hindrance. But no more. It is over. You are through, Cardinal Mahoney. You were to have been a servant, not an uncaring master. Ah yes, a fantasy.
