Hasta La Vista, BABY!
I've received word from a friend who lives near Ecclesiastical Ground Zero (The Chancery in Raleigh) that... oh, shall we say "a change" has taken place.
The former, with emphasis on former, president (or as they say Down South, 'the dawg with the big nuts') of Cardinal Gibbons High School in Raleigh has essentially vaporized from sight.
Just a few short days from the start of the new school year... and then zap, poof, ~ or in the immortal words of Sonny Corleone ~ 'badda-boop badda-beep badda-bang'... he's gone.
It's VERY common knowledge that Presider Dan Kenna, OFM (poster boy and champion of all things heretical, liberal, and “progressive in the Spirit of VII”) is the same guy who had students recite portions of the Consecration during a Mass.
It is also VERY common knowledge that he's the same guy who constantly preached heresy to the students, such as –
"The ‘miracle’ of the loaves and fishes was that Jesus moved the (greedy orthodox) Jews to share their food (that they were all hoarding in their tunics for fear of sharing with their hungry friends)"
"YOU bring the living water to each other" – as opposed to Christ
"The Holy Spirit didn’t descend on the Apostles at Pentecost – the Holy Spirit was already in them!"
The same guy that upon arrival at Cardinal Gibbons HS, promptly removed First Friday Eucharistic Adoration from the school calendar. After all, we wouldn’t want Catholic students to actually do anything vertical, and possibly have a profound encounter with Christ’s Real Presence.
The same Kenna, that began the opening prayer at graduation, WITHOUT the Sign of the Cross, and then went on to pray to "the God of many names, and ways of believing".
Gee... I'm missing him already, and I didn't even go to Cardinal Gibbons.
And get ready for the best part... said evaporization manifested itself after a meeting with the new sheriff in town, Bishop Burbidge (the proverbial dog with even BIGGER nuts). Kenna was gone within a single day.
Draw what conclusions you may, but one thing is for sure... someone of a decidedly liberal bend is no longer influencing young Catholic souls and minds. (Thanks be to Almighty God!)
Oh, by the way... almost 200,000 Catholics in this diocese, and the best the old bishop (Smilin' Joe Gossman) could muster is ONE high school? I have a funny feeling that things will change real, real soon.
