What Happens When A Cardinal Tells The Pope To Go Screw Himself?
Absolutely nothing (and don't tell me you're surprised)

This fine morning I was perusing one of my favorite Catholic news portals, and two stories were side-by-side, and literally jumped out at me.

The first one was concerning how the Cardinal of Vienna has (yet again) allowed homosexual "couples" to have their relationships "blessed" in the Cathedral of St. Stephen.

The second story was all about the hot air coming emanating from Pope Benedict about how Catholic bishops are responsible for "a solid religious instruction that can withstand the challenges of an extensively secularized society"

Ummm... Your Holiness, how does it feel to have one of the more senior Princes of The Church tell you to basically go f%@& yourself?

Whatever happened to our PanzerKardinal? Was God's Rotweiller neutered when we weren't looking? One thing's for sure, our Pontiff is desperately in need of our prayers.

Holy Father, your Soldiers of Christ are awaiting our marching orders from you. But take this piece of advice... warriors (holy or otherwise) despise timidity in our leaders. In other words, quit being a doormat for the Smoke of Satan crew. If you're going to be a leader... then LEAD!

and the massed warriors, standing in formation and at attention, shouted a hearty "AMEN!"

Gee, Cavey, I sure wish I could disagree.

I wish I could jump to the Holy Father's defense, accuse you of overreating, and assure you that all is as it should be, and moving in the right direction.

I sure wish.

Well, I've come to the conclusion that with the advent of the internet and the 24/7 news cycle, this sort of behavior on the part of a bishop or priest will no longer be under the radar screen.

Something must be done about this type of thing and I'm starting to think that God is the one to do it.

It may take a few days for the Vatican's SF team to get to Austria, set up, and ...

....a sudden attack of duct-tape will precede someone's falling down an Alp.

I too wish Papa Ratzi would come down like a ton of bricks on these guys (starting, of course, with the ones in my own diocese), and feel frustrated at the apparent lack of anything being done.

But at times like these, while we bear these crosses and pray for the conversion of wayward clergy, and for more faithful shepherds, we really need to remember one thing: Jesus PROMISED the gates of Hell would never prevail against the Church.

And He has never been known to go back on His word.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who feels this way.

Nothing will happen. Mahony has been doing stuff like this for years and years.

And if Halloween Mass didn't get a rise out of him, I give up.

"As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity ... the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. EAch day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests.
The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, and bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees (other priests). Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord."

A cheery message from Our Lady at Akita, delivered October 13, 1973. Things are FAR WORSE in the world and the Church today than they were then. Of course, I don't see many cardinals publicly rebuking cardinals or bishops going toe-to-toe with errant bishops.
