"THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE -EVEN WHEN THE TRUTH IS REVOLTING"




IN A RECENT EMAIL SENT TO ME BY THE ARCHBISHOP OF DUBLIN - DIARMUID MARTIN - DIARMUID SAID SOMETHING VERY PROFOUND AND TRUE. HE SAID:

"THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE - EVEN IF THE TRUTH IS REVOLTING"

Many of the "truths" that have been published on this Blog in recent times have certainly been disturbing and revolting.

- Seminaries like Maynooth and The Irish College being seedbeds of promiscuous homosexuality.

- Priest, nuns, and brothers abusing men, women, and children sexually, physically, psychologically etc.

- Priests bullying parishioners in their parishes - to the point of sending old ladies home from Mass crying.

- Priest/seminarians or laymen having oral and anal sex on an altar.

- Priests computers pictures of naked men on their computers during sacramental preparation.

- A priest being caught in bed with three sailors.

- A man in his 50's being allegedly raped in a presbytery.

Etc., etc.


The REVOLTING TRUTH behind all of these happenings is that much of the Hierarchy and Clergy of the Catholic Church are absolutely corrupt in so many ways.




These revolting hierarchy and clergy members do not want to be exposed.

But they must be exposed in every corner of the Church where they exist. 

The TRUTH is that they were never suitable to the priesthood in the beginning - or that they have been corrupted by others as they made their way through seminaries, priesthood, and religious orders.





The OTHER TRUTH is that the pope, cardinals, archbishops, bishops, and clergy who know about these men and their activities and do nothing about it are also CORRUPT BY DEFAULT.

"FOR EVIL TO SUCCEED ALL THAT IS NECESSARY IS THAT GOOD MEN DO NOTHING"

People like Diarmuid Martin in Dublin, people like Eamon Martin in Armagh, people like Ray Browne in Kerry are all accessories before, during and after the fact by not sending these revolting priests and seminarians packing - and by covering up for them when they do wrong.

The Martins and the Browne's of the Irish Catholic Church are sinning before God in their failure to proclaim and challenge the evils that they see all around them.

And they are leaving men like Mullaney and Collins in Maynooth - where there is currently an active break out of homosexual promiscuity and bullying. 

And even the good priests who write on this Blog bear a great deal of responsibility for not speaking up.

Of course, it might derail their clerical "career" if they speak up.

Of course, some nasty and Godless bishop might consign them to an outback parish for their honesty and prophecy.

Of course, speaking out and whistleblowing is a painful path.

But is that not what the priest, Jesus Christ, expects of real priests - to proclaim the truth, even the revolting truth, loudly, in season and out of season, welcome or unwelcome.

Someone wisely wrote one time:

"THERE WAS A TIME IN IRELAND WHEN CHALICES WERE MADE OF WOOD AND PRIESTS WERE MADE OF GOLD.

NOW IN IRELAND, ALL THE CHALICES ARE MADE OF GOLD AND THE PRIESTS ARE MADE OF WOOD"


And as the Psalmist cried out:

"THERE IS NEITHER PRIEST OR PROPHET TO PLY HIS TRADE IN THE LAND".


The TRUTH is that much of what is going on in the Irish Catholic Church today is REVOLTING.

For Christ's sake do not make the excuse: "But there are good priests here and there doing good".

What are those priests doing about all the revolting things they see happening all around them in their dioceses, seminaries and religious orders?

It is not enough to keep your head down and simply look after your own little patch.

Not when there is so much at stake in the National Church!

POPE FRANCIS ON THE CORRUPT

As should be obvious to anyone who's spent more than 45 seconds reading the pontiff's daily Domus homilies, being distinguished from sinners "which we all are," "the corrupt" are a frequent and uniquely loaded target in Francis' arsenal of criticism – a category of people who are essentially beyond redemption, having lost their sense of sin and thus an awareness of their need for God's mercy. Among other examples, in a 2013 homily, the Pope put it bluntly, citing St John: "The corrupt are the antichrist.")

  1. +Pat is it possible to give us insight to your connection with James McConnell as he quotes you on a daily basis on FB. Is he employed by you?
    He is seriously damaging to your image as he has caused much distress to the local neighbours and many families in our country parish.
    We really feel for the lad as the truth is well known in our area.
    Can you please publish your connection it will be generally good for all and that includes James.
    By the way I'm not a practicing Catholic.

    1. I met James more than 20 years ago when I was assisting a woman relative who was sexually used by a priest.

      We have stayed in touch.

      He was deeply traumatised by the events I mention above.

    2. @00.21 Forgive me for saying but you’ve asked this question 1000th times - it seems like that anyhow? If my memory serves me correctly, +Pat has answered it many times both thouroghly and sincerely. Are we to have the same question again? Quite frankly it’s becoming annoyingly repetitive.

    3. 09:57, I have only asked that question 17 times - I have kept a record. I think your real annoyance is my admission that I am not a practicing Catholic.

    4. @10.11 I never noticed you were not a practising Catholic, you could be any religion practising or otherwise and it would not bother me. I’m not that petty minded I can assure you, Do you not think asking the same question even 17 times (your own admission) is a tad obsessive and repetitive? You have received the same answer each time. Does one need to keep asking the same question over and over again which was my original point? Thank you.

      Delete
    5. +Pat thanks for response. I do appreciate that James struggles greatly with family problems and relationship which seemly involves the Church. He takes these issues to the heart of the community which causes concern for others. I do hope and pray his relationships with family heal as family is everything in life!

      09:57 I've never once asked that question as I have no interest in anything other than as a neighbour we all have concerns for his wellbeing.
      Show me where the question was asked before?
      It's a public blog and I have every right just like you to pist on this blog and my opinion if it differs be respected!

    6. McConnell has lost it completely. Pat please check out his Face Book page and you'll understand the community position with regard this sad individual and the vile posts about his family, town & country is laughing at him which is very unfair.

    It seems Pat that you wish to be controversial and "shock" people by your continued use of vulgar "picture cartoons" on this blog, such as that above of the praying bishop's exposed buttocks before the crucifix.
    I'm certainly neither prudish nor squeamish. I accept that some cartoons may make a serious point or highlight a relevant issue. But I do not accept that their use is either the only way, or best way, to make a point. Other comments in the past have also taken issue with you on this. You have tended to dismiss or take them lightly. I think that in the context of your aspiration to influence ordinary church going people you would do better by accepting that very many, of a more "tender disposition" on seeing what they may regard as your crude pictures will dismiss and ignore your more positive contributions.
    But it that's what you want, then by all means carry on. I have commented before on this issue, but will not do so again.

    1. MMM @ 9 13: I agree with you and I too have expressed my disgust at the use of vulgar and crude cartoons to ridicule, hurt and insult people. If Pat depends on these for argument of serious issues, then he is losing. The cartoons may have the opposite effect but as you know Pat is hardhearted and doesn't care who he slanders, ridicules or hurts. I find much of his own commentary and that of others to be unnecessarily pornographic in tone. There is too much on this blog that vengeance inspired. We all want the truth, but truth must be accompanied by justice, mercy and fairness.

    2. Very true +Pat. When I say he’s an old man I mean someone at 73 shouldn’t have to have this type of stress or worry in their lives.

      I think you might be right. 65 is probably a good age to step down. Maybe do what some retired PP’s do and become an adjunct curate or something.

      It’s not fair on these men I extend that to the Pope as well.

      Delete
    3. I asked my Bishop some years ago, a kind and wise old owl, what was the most thing he hated being a Bishop? He answered swiftly and honestly, “Opening the post every morning”. Mind you, that was before we had heard of emails and social media. I think it’s a thankless task and the reason why some Dioceses are without Bishops is because very few want it! I agree with Pat, Bishops should retire at 65 or set the their own retirement age. Some Dioceses are saddled with younger Bishops for years which I feel is not fair to the Bishop himself, his clergy and the lay faithful.

    5. Bishop Buckley, thank you for another insightful blog today. I was very interested to note your very valid observations about Priests who don’t speak out about the rot that surrounds them and that they are fully aware of. You also make equally valid points about whistleblower Priests and those who choose to speak out publicly. It is truly a painful path to take and often a lonely path, I totally concur with you on this. I know of a few Priests personally who have spoken out and have been punished in different ways and in some instances silenced. I think that is cruel, deeply unchristian and spiteful. Do you know many Pat in these situations? Bishops can abuse their power and cause great hurt and pain to their Clergy. It’s a side of the Priesthood many laity don’t see or aware off. If you go on the airwaves or go to the print media you are persona non grata.

    3. Good point 12.48, the priests are living double lives and will continue to do so until they are allowed to live authentically. To 13.06 people are closing the door on Francis, his opinion is largely void.

      The church needs change and until it recognises the needs of these men and women being unmet, this blog will continue on the same thread. Over time we will become less shocked and the normality of men and women having relationships will just be a thing. It happened with premarital sex, condoms etc. No one is listening to the magisterium any more. The people have the power

      Delete
    4. 13:06, no, the Church as such did most certainly not teach decisively on this matter: rather, Pope JP II did in his apostolic letter of 1994, Ordinatio Sacerdotalis.

      But even this archly conservstive pope, perhaps by divine irony, did not close the door of theological debate on the matter for all time, since he expressly states that the Church's lack of authority to ordain women to the ministerial priesthood is merely contemporaneous with the Church and not a timeless feature of it: '...I declare that the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women...'. (Notice he did not state that the Church never would have this authority, only that it did not presently possess it.)

      The statement was not a ban on the Church's ever having such authority (no pope could ever invoke such a ban without exceeding the limitations of papal office), but an acknowledgement by Pope JP II that, in his opinion, the Church CURRENTLY had no such authority. Which means that authority to confer priestly ordibation on women may, at some point in the future, be bestowed on the Church by Almighty God himself.

    5. "The Anglicans have openly gay, married and women clergy and a fat lot of good it's done them. The Episcopalians in America are an endangered species."

      So are the Roman Catholics. And our hang-ups, which Anglicsns largely avoid, are what are doing us in. Nor can Pope Francis alter that, because he would face massive right wing rage if he attempted it. Of course the Anglicans faced such rage too and all sorts of schismatic behaviour, but their ship is flexibly constructed and can handle such divisiveness blandly.

      Nowhere in the New Testament does Jesus ban women from priesthood; in fact, at Pentecost (traditionally recognised as the birth day of the Christian Church), Acts of the Apostles does not exclude women from that momentous event (and, therefore, from ministerial priesthood itself).

    There is a long journey from issuing a solicitor's letter to a success in a defamation case.

    I can tell you this as the son of a barrister and as an experienced personal litigant.

    There is also the doctrine:

    "HE WHO COMES INTO EQUITY MUST COME WITH CLEAN HANDS".

    1. My honourable parents, JoJo and Jim were very radical in their own way.

      When they were alive I spoke about everything and they were 100% supportive.

      We're they still alive they would be the same.

      You certainly did not know them.

    2. It's extremely bad form, 19:46 to bring parents (RIP) into a spat.

  18. Pat, I’m forwarding you the names of a small cabal of Gay Westminster Clergy, you maybe already aware of these individuals. They are nasty and vindictive against fellow clergy and their Bishops, they always sit together at Diocesan gatherings sniggering and mocking liturgy, homilies and others attending. They often have gin parties and call each other and other clergy by girls names. Some have been guilty of bullying, particularly their parishioners. They let themselves down boozing, screeching and being loud in front of laity on pilgrimage in places like Lourdes. It’s truly shocking to see and equally shocking what influence some of them have in the Archdiocese. I will email the details.

  19. @20.28. The tide is changing and these priests need to be identified and dismissed.

    2. Sounds like a clique of Anglican pooves may have infiltrated the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. More work for +Pat.

  21. 22.24 Some are former Anglican single Vicars who became Priests of Westminster diocese but the majority of the cabal are originally Westminster Priests themselves. It doesn’t concern the Ordinariate. You are confusing the issue.
