Follow The Dots
AGAIN I must follow in the footsteps of Quintero. (But he's so COOL!)

Yes, I'll readily admit that I'm swiping from Peter. But hey, a great idea is a great idea! And in all honesty, I don't think that Peter would mind. What's the old saying, "imitation is the sincerest form...". Well you know the rest.

But anyhow, the utter, absolute and arrogant hypocrisy here is simply mind boggling (in the immortal words of Kelly Bundy, "It wobbles the mind") .

Follow The Dots...

Nov 15, 2005. "Church officials got the "run around" from the Federal Emergency Management Agency when they wanted to know what federal plans were for helping the regions devastated by Hurricane Katrina"... The harsh criticism of FEMA came from Archbishop Joseph A. Fiorenza of Galveston-Houston. "It was clear to me that not a whole lot of help was coming from FEMA," he said.

Archbishop Fiorenza Kicks Out Priest Because Of Latin Masses

June 29, 2003. Fr. Stephen Zigrang JCL, pastor of St. Andrew's Church in Channelview, has been called into his bishop's office, threatened with suspension, removed from his parish and even forced to defend his mental health to his own father... He was told that he would be suspended and had until the next day to vacate the St. Andrew's rectory... as he was moving out of the parish rectory, Fr. Zigrang was called by Bishop Fiorenza, who recommended that he take a two month leave of duty. It was further suggested that Fr. Zigrang may want to seek psychiatric counseling during this time.

Archbishop Joseph Fiorenza Protects Child Molesters

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, as bishop of San Angelo in West Texas, he employed a priest who'd been forced from three other dioceses because of molestation accusations. Bishop Fiorenza wrote in a 1982 letter that he knew of the Rev. David Holley's "past difficulties" and stated: "With our shortage of priests, I am willing to risk incardinating him"... In 1997, when The Dallas Morning News obtained that letter and the rest of Father Holley's personnel file, Bishop Fiorenza refused interview requests.... Father Holley is now imprisoned for molesting boys in New Mexico. the mid-1980s, Bishop Fiorenza transferred the Rev. Noe Guzman to another parish after the priest was caught sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl. The bishop has said he delegated the matter to an assistant, who has testified that he accepted Father Guzman's characterization of the girl as a "precocious child who came on to him." The woman who caught the priest has said that the assistant urged her not to cooperate with police. The assault came to light after Father Guzman impregnated a church secretary; he served a short jail term.

Have you followed the dots? And we wonder why we have a shortage of priests. We can't figure out why the majority of Catholics don't even believe in The Real Presence. We struggle to find out why Confession is a dead Sacrament. Want the answers? Look to the wolves in sheeps clothing at the USCCB.

Good research!

I'm in Archbishop Fiorenza's Archdiocese and I am still hesitant to look into his past. I'm praying for his quick retirement, but if he continues to hang on past the new year, I will pray and reconsider.

Wow, good blogging.

My recommendation is to attend an SSPX chapel. The post-Conciliar church is in a shambles and you really dont know what faith they're teaching anyhow.
