Pope Benedict contributing to the Church's disgrace
Like many I have lost count of how many stupidities, boring platitudes, retreats in the face of The Enemy and banalities have dripped off the tongue of the garrulous Cardinal of New York, Timothy Dolan.  Pope Benedict will have to wear the shame of this disgraceful appointment all the way to his grave.  That Benedict would entrust the New York archdiocese to a man like Timothy Dolan is incomprehensible and insulting.

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.

Dolan was by far the worst appointment under Pope Benedict XVI, God spare us...

I've never been a fan of him, always thought he was a liberal, spineless shepherd, his attitude towards the Liturgy told me everything I needed to know about him.

I've read that St Francis made some poor choices of associates.

Take heart, all things happen for the good of those who Love the Lord. We can't see how at this point but we can believe it.

"Mr. Dolan won't go to the mat for the Son of God."

I'll bet he would for a doughnut.
