Cardinal Mahony's 2007 wRECk chat

Have you been to the website of Cardinal Mahony's Religious Education Congress (click on this post's title) and seen the transcript of his 2007 nationwide chat?

Asked what are the two or three most important issues facing the Church today, he mentions "helping our immigrant peoples" but says ZERO about all the BABIES who are being aborted in his vast Archdiocese every day, day after day, year in and year out, with no letup in sight.

And what about the worsening anti-Catholicism, contraception, sterilization, pornography, the homosexual assault on our values and institutions, etc.?

Asked if he will support more Latin in the liturgy, including use of the Tridentine Latin Mass, if the Pope encourages it, the Cardinal replies, "[O]f our 5 million Catholics, only a handful are interested in the Latin Mass. I must focus upon the 99% who need a vibrant Mass that includes them in its celebration." So much for what the Vicar of Christ might encourage!

They take away the Mass of the ages for two generations, and they badmouth it and falsely characterize it, and then they have the nerve to say nobody's interested in it!

Oye -- listen: With the Tridentine Latin Mass, our churches were PACKED and NO ONE whined, "I don't get anything out of it"; but with the "New Mass," we've seen tidal waves of Catholics stop attending Mass and then even apostasizing to Protestantism, cults, etc.

So which Mass is "vibrant" and which Mass includes the congregation? Yes, the Tridentine Latin Mass. Find an indult Mass and you will love it and your spiritual life will deepen.

By the way, in last year's chat, the Cardinal said the Tridentine Latin Mass was the Church's Mass for only a slice of Her history. That is demonstrably inaccurate, any way you "slice" it.

Back to this year: Asked why only men can become priests, Cardinal Mahony does not answer! Instead he replies, "The moderator has better answers than I do to that question!!!"

It makes one wonder why, since he is a shepherd, after all, he would not leave the 99% and go in search of that 1%.

Dear Patrick,

Wow, that is an excellent point. Thanks for making it.

And thank you for all the good you do for souls, the Church and the babies through your Surprised by Truth apostolate, your books, EWTN's Open Line and so on!

An Indult was never really required and is an insult.

My late friend, Fr. Charles Fiore, who taught Moral Theology at the Angelicum as a Dominican for many years told me that Canon Law allows for a time of "Necessity", and he told me "ken, if these are not times of necessity, what in the heck is". Father entered Eternity as a Fraternity Priest and still a Dominican at heart.

Many fine young priests have decided that they must return to the Mass of ST PIUS V, and have given up virtually all worldly benefits in order to do so. By insisting on the insulting Indult, you are making these fine young priest out to be second class priest at best.

I'll tell you one thing from 1st hand experience. When you are sick and in need of a priest and call them, YOU DON'T HAVE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT AND HOPE AND PRAY THEY WILL KEEP IT! I know of one who got in a plane and flew out of town to visit a sick lady who couldn't get a Novus Ordo priest to come and minister to her! "By their fruits, ye shall know the!m"

St. Athansius the Great, pray for us!

God bless
