Chicago’s Cardinal Blase Cupich on Tuesday lost a key election to chair the Right to Life Committee for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Instead, Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City won with 54 pecent of the vote. That makes him the first non-cardinal to win that chairmanship in at least 30 years.
Rocco Palmo, who closely follows the Catholic Church and writes the popular Whispers in the Loggia blog called the result “a genuine shocker.”
This vote by the American bishops, rejecting Cupich for the Right to Life post, is a key sign that Cupich is not as popular with his fellow bishops as his predecessor Cardinal Francis George.
Full story at NBC Chicago.
ooooohh that’s gonna sting and hurt his pride
The fox could not make it into the henhouse.
I am surprised that C. Cupich got any votes at all. Pro-life activities do not seem to be his forte.
Maybe NBC is surprised. I’m not.

Why on earth was Cdl. Cupich even considered for that USCCB “Right to Life” post? He is certainly no champion of the Right to Life of unborn children.
Praise be Jesus Christ.
Thanks be to God.
Let’s continue to pray for all of our bishops, including the Pope.
In addition to his non-support of pro-life activities, here’s another reason (from a 10/5 article in Cal-Catholic):
We have all learned that in some Dioceses of the United States of America, and in particular in the Archdiocese of Chicago, the ecclesiastical authority is mandating its clerics and faithful employees to be vaccinated as a condition for attending celebrations, liturgical activities. and pastoral and even for the mere fact of being priests with a ministry. Similar despotic measures are also imposed in Italy and other countries.
Priests who do not comply with the provisions of the Ordinary will be deprived of their priestly faculties and means of subsistence. Consequently, many churches will be closed, with very serious damage to the salus animarum, due to the lack of clerics who can replace those who will not be injected with the experimental gene serum.
To remove priestly faculties is an absolute outrage!
I’m told that this is a story from 2017. Accordingly, my observant friend says that the CCD needs some editorial help.
Moderators, will you please investigate and if you find that this is the case might you consider an apology to your readers?
Yes, 2017; apologies for oversight.
CCD made an inexcusable error. That’s the dark side. On the bright side, it shows that the majority of bishops saw right through Cupich four years earlier.
Always remember Cupich was the Bishop of Rapid City South Dakota when he locked the doors of the church for the local TLM community. Right then and there I had no love for this guy he showed his disdain for The Traditional Latin Mass. As a Croatian myself it’s a shame Cupich is one as well, he is a full blown Novus Orodnarian modernist.
What will you do when the novus ordo is the only game in town for a Mass in union with Rome? It’s coming
A “Novus Ordo modernist.” There’s a lot that’s wrong with that phrase. Just because a Catholic is devoted to the liturgies and the Mass of Pope Paul VI doesn’t make that Catholic a “modernist.” Therefore, RA is wrong. Again.
I’m going to stop reading this site because of jon’s arrogance. I just don’t want to be assaulted by his condescension anymore. Enough already.
So proponents of the TLM don’t love, don’t forgive and don’t believe in the Catholic Church?
Cardinal Cupich’s twitter account is good. He does not seem to be the jerk that some commenters want you to think he is.
Oh I think not about the only game in town as to the Novus Ordo, it has been a complete and total failure, is it valid why yes it is, however it is a man made mess of dancing girls, altar girls, lay lectors, drums, guitars, hand holding, kiss of peace, improper attire, rock, mariachi, folk music, communion in the hand while standing, ripped out high altars, communion rails, statues, confessionals, clowns, giant puppets, effeminate men in leotards prancing about with pagan incense bowls, 10% Mass attendance it was 75% prior to the Novus Ordo and the abomination’s can go on and on. On the other hand the True Mass of All Times has the Official Lingua Franca of The Church Latin, Gregorian chant, Mozart, Palestrina, Hayden, altar boys only, organ, proper attire, beautiful vestments, incense, bells, kneeling for Holy Communion, confession, silence, just like the person that currently sits in the Oval Office you can’t pull off a fraud and pretend its the real deal.
