And Archbishop Lefevbre Was "Excommunicated" For What Again? (Part II)
More raw sewage rises to the top in Boston

Alas, more anti-Catholic shenanigans from the Roman Protestant Archdiocese of Boston. The Apostasy De Jour is some chick up in The Land of Law has done and got herself "ordained".

Hey sweet-cheeks... I don't know if you realize this or not, but one can no more ordain a woman as much as one can... oh, let's say... baptize a Cocker Spaniel or give Last Rites to a tree.

But anyhow, this gal was actually in a leadership role... for years... within the Archdiocese of Boston, and NO ONE KNEW of her attitudes towards so-called women priests? No one had even an inkling!!?? You gotta be kidding me!! WHO THE HELL'S IN CHARGE IN BOSTON!!??

The "priestess" in question, one Jean Marie Marchant, who just turned in her resignation to Cardinal O'Malley... and that's where it ended. What? No writ of excommunication? Un-freakin'-believable.

Love, hate, or indifferent towards Abp Lefevbre, you have to admit that at least he had valid reasoning for his actions, unlike Marchant. Abp Lefevbre at least had the good manners to cite Canon Law for his actions, unlike Marchant. Abp Lefevbre at least had the good manners to request a Canonical Trial for his actions, unlike Merchant (and oddly enough, Abp Lefevbre never got his day in court... hmmm).

And here's the scary thing about Merchant - according to the Boston Globe; Marchant chose to be ordained last year by female bishops associated with Roman Catholic Womenpriests, which says its ordinations are valid because its bishops have been ordained, in secret, by valid Roman Catholic bishops.

Things are way out of control in Boston. Yes, the word apostasy works nicely.

I think that my good goomba, the Curmudgeon, just may be on to something here... as Curmudgie says ~ In the old days, a prelate would put a region under prohibition, or whole groups of people under interdict when things got so out of hand he needed to get people's attention. It's long past time to do that in Massachusetts. Sure, it would be a hardship on the faithful Catholics in Massachusetts, but it isn't like they're in Texas. Everyone else can catch Mass just across the state line on the weekends, and that's . . . . what . . . . twenty minutes in any direction?

The bishops are never going to be taken seriously since the sexual scandals unless the good ones start regaining their moral authority and that won't happen until they get the balls to clean their own houses. The shepherd's crook as a symbol of their rank was given them for a reason!

The other one-twelfth, the successors of Judas Iscariot, should start doing their penance now or, as Dante said, their bones will tile the floors of hell. (Was that too judgmental? Sorry.)

From what I can see in Boston anything goes. Cardinal O'Malley is a nice man but he's led by the same people who were in place when Card. Law was there.

Dymph, you hit the nail right on the head!

Cardinal O'Malley is a nice man but he's led by the same people...

Cdl O'Malley is the one who should be doing all the 'leading'. Instead, he's the one being led around by the nose.

As I said in my post... WHO THE HELL'S IN CHARGE IN BOSTON!!??

Obviously, the good Cardinal ain't.

Someday, when Rome wakes up from this 40 year nightmare, Archbishop Lefevbre will be raised to the altar as a saint!

All authority flows downward from above with God as its source, as VSC pointed out indirectly.

We must pray for the Pope that he be inspired by the Holy Ghost to restore Tradition to the Church.
