INDIAN CARDINAL LIVING ABOVE ROMAN GAY SAUNA

A Roscommon priest yesterday sent me a link to a new site carrying a story that a Roman Curia cardinal, Cardinal Ivan Dias, is living on the floor above Rome biggest gay sauna.


Cardinal Ivan Dias




CARDINAL DIAS, THE FORMER ARCHBISHOP OF BOMBAY HAS A 12 ROOMED APARTMENT ABOVE THE EUROPA MULTICLUB.



Father Who?


WHY DOES A CARDINAL - ESPECIALLY FROM A COUNTRY WHERE MILLIONS LIVE BELOW THE POVERTY LINE - NEED A 12 ROOM APARTMENT ANYWAY?

APPARENTLY 20 OTHER PRIEST WHO WORK IN THE VATICAN LIVE IN THE OTHER 20 APARTMENTS IN THE CENTRE CITY PALACE BUILDING.

IF POPE FRANCIS HIMSELF LIVES IN A TWO ROOMED FACILITY AT A VATICAN HOSTEL WHY DO ROMAN CARDINALS, BISHOPS AND PRIESTS LIVE PRINCELY LIFESTYLES IN PALACE LIKE BUILDINGS AROUND CENTRAL ROME.

DO THESE CARDINALS AND PRIESTS NOT FEEL CHALLENGED BY FRANCIS' EXAMPLE?

RECENTLY POPE FRANCIS HAS BEEN SPEAKING ABOUT BISHOPS NOT LIVING LIKE PRINCES. IS CARDINAL DIAS LISTENING TO HIS HOLY FATHER?

FRANCIS HAS ALSO BEMOANED THE FACT THAT THERE IS A "GAY LOBBY" IN THE ROMAN CURIA.

A PRIEST FRIEND OF MINE FROM ENGLAND, WHO HAPPENS TO BE GAY AND WHO SPENT A LONG TIME IN ROME TOLD ME THAT THE WAY TO GET PROMOTED IN THE CURIA IS TO DO "SEXUAL FAVOURS" FOR YOUR SUPERIORS THERE.

AND YET THE VATICAN - BUT NOT THIS POPE YET - CONDEMNS THE MILLIONS OF GOOD, CHRISTIAN GAY AND LESBIAN WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD WHO ARE LIVING THEIR LIVES OPENLY AND WITH INTEGRITY.

EVEN IN THE IRISH PRIESTHOOD THERE ARE A NASTY MINORITY OF WICKED AND AGGRESSIVE GAYS WHO LASH OUT AT EVERYONE WHO TELLS IT AS IT IS. YOU WILL SEE SOME ANONYMOUS COMMENTS FROM SOME OF THEM ON THIS BLOG.

I KNOW WHO MANY OF THEM ARE - DIOCESE BY DIOCESE - FROM SOUTH COUNTY CORK TO NORTH COUNTY ANTRIM.

I HAVE MINISTERED TO MEN WHO HAVE BEEN THEIR VICTIMS.

DO THEY NOT REALISE THAT THE DAY OF RECKONING IS UPON US?

    1. My Friend,

      Believe me I have no desire to live anywhere in Rome.

      Its a great city for a visit but not my idea of a place to live

  4. A killer Cardinal who has destroyed the Catholic faith way back to India. A person with a split personality!

  5. I hear that this Cardinal funded a Mafia group of the Church to take the life of his brother in India, pray for his poor soul, he is suffering now in Rome for all his ill deeds.
