|Pope Benedict contributing to the Church's disgrace|
In a recent interview the Cardinal explains with refreshing candor that he very idea of refusing Communion to public sinners is something "for the past", something he and his brother Bishops believe is not worth "going to the mat" for.
I'm afraid I have lost patience completely with the Cardinal and no longer feel constrained to speak of this in soft tones. He is a disgrace to the cloth he wears and the sooner he is gone from New York the better.
But given that his Roman boss - demonstrably - is not terribly enthused about the jots and tittles of clear Christian teaching on such unimportant points as the proper worship due to Jesus Christ, or the morals of those souls under his care, it is doubtful we will be seeing the exit of Dolan any time soon. I have come to believe that even if His Eminence was found to have raped and murdered his private secretary and wiped her blood off on his window curtains that the Pope would still allow him to sit in office.
May God have mercy on his Church while such clerics are allowed to run roughshod over the hearts and minds of simple Catholics.
Dolan won't go to the mat for Our Lord; I wonder if Our Lord will go to the mat for him when the time comes. One has to wonder about this because his tenure in New York has been utterly disgusting.
