The smug visage of a spiritually dry man

So.  Our Christmas present from the Holy Father is none other than Donald Cardinal Wuerl, who will now be more influential than he ever was in appointing new Bishops.

George Neumyer writes about the smug Cardinal at the American Spectator.

The "Jadot Faction" has returned with a vengeance.  It was the extremely strange Jean Jadot who gave us such exemplary prelates as John Quinn, Kenneth Untener, Raymond Hunthausen, Peter Gerety, Bernard Law, James Hickey and Rembert Weakland among other notables.

These men were called Jadot's, well....."boys".  I wonder why?

Now we have the homo-friendly Donald Wuerl influencing new Bishops.  His decisions will be with us for a long time.  Apparently that certain Mafia in the Church - the one that Pope Francis said that he would see what he could do about it - is still more than a little influential.

He has risen to the position because of his service to the Church we are told.  One example of that service was his public humiliation and hounding of a good priest for refusing Holy Communion to an obnoxious, extremely fat and loud-mouthed lesbian Buddhist last year.

Why do men such as Wuerl rise to such prominence in the Holy Catholic Church?

Why in a stagnant pond does scum rise to the top?

Why? Because God is letting those like Wuerl have their reward.

"The most evident mark of God's anger, and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world, is manifest when He permits His people to fall into the hands of a clergy who are more in name than in deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than the charity and affection of devoted shepherds. They abandon the things of God to devote themselves to the things of the world and, in their saintly calling of holiness, they spend their time in profane and worldly pursuits. When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people and is visiting His most dreadful wrath upon them."
-St. John Eudes

'Return O ye revolting children ... and I will give you pastors according to My own heart'
-Jer. 3:14,15

Thank you, Anon, for reminding me of that quote. I had known of it before but it is good to keep it in front of our eyes.

With every good wish for Advent, and the coming Christmas season...

Compare his face with all those behind him. LOL I don't think they were experiencing what he was.

Those are all good questions, with no satisfactory answer of course.

I'm more than a little concerned that Wuerl has joined the bishop makers. Thank goodness Card. Ouellet remains.

I very much share your worries, Wendell. Wuerl will see that the only people promoted to Bishop will be people like him, or worse if that's even possible.
