On Saturday, April 26, San Francisco’s Stuart Hall for Boys elementary school, the male elementary school of the San Francisco’s “Schools of the Sacred Heart” held the boys’ First Holy Communion. Of the hundreds of priests serving in Archdiocese of San Francisco who could have celebrated, Stuart Hall chose one of the most notorious homosexual activist priests in the world, Fr. Donal Godfrey, SJ.
The choice of Godfrey by the Schools of the Sacred Heart can serve as “Exhibit A” for the problems Archbishop Cordileone is trying to address with his new initiative for San Francisco’s Catholic High Schools. The problem can be distilled to one sentence: “Will sodomy be celebrated in the churches and schools of San Francisco?”
The choice of Godfrey by the schools of the Sacred Heart is neither coincidental nor accidental. As CalCatholic reported on March 26, 2014 (Gay Totalitarianism at Schools of the Sacred Heart, San Francisco), three members of the department of Theology at Stuart Hall’s High School, are open homosexuals.
Of another, Michael Sepidoza Campos, we reported “In addition to his work at Stuart Hall he is a member of EQARS (Emerging Queer Asian Pacific Islander Religious Scholars). Their mission statement: “EQARS is a group of scholars, religious workers, and activists that began meeting regularly in February 2010 to discuss the emerging area of interest that is queer Asian Pacific Islander religions, and to engage in a collaborative methodology to further each other’s scholarly, religious work and activism….” Campos biographical entry at EQARS includes: “Michael’s research interests include Filipino-American diaspora, postcolonial theory, queer theory and critical pedagogy….”
Campos was also one of the facilitators at the praying of the “queer rosary” on September 17, 2009 at Newman Hall/Holy Spirit parish in Berkeley. On September 21, 2011 the website Queering the Church, reporting on a recent conference at Fordham University which Campos attended, said: “Michael Sepidoza Campos, Ph.D., who is gay, described his decision to join, and eventually leave, the seminary and his current work as a high-school teacher.”
The chair of Stuart Hall’s department of theology is Raymond O’Connor. According to a September 24, 2013 profile in the Convent and Sacred Heart News, O’Connor has been at Sacred Heart/Stuart Hall since 2000. He spent ten years training for the priesthood, nine of which were with the Jesuits. Not coincidentally, Fr. Godfrey is also a Jesuit. From July 9-15, 2011 O’Connor led the Convent of the Sacred Heart/Stuart Hall’s hosting of the Summer Service Projects, a program in which students visit various Sacred Heart schools around the country. The 2011 program was called Bay to Waves. Among other things, O’Connor took the students to a viewing of the film Milk, which celebrates the life of homosexualist Harvey Milk. He took 18 students on a tour of San Francisco’s Castro district, to O’Connor’s home parish Most Holy Redeemer, to the Harvey Milk Academy, and to the LGBT Museum. He took the students to the Human Rights Campaign Action Center in the Castro District. The Human Rights Campaign is the largest same-sex “marriage” lobby in the country.
For a number of years O’Connor served as the coordinator of lectors at San Francisco’s Most Holy Redeemer parish, and on the parish’s worship committee. In 2002, the New York Times wrote about Most Holy Redeemer, saying that “80 to 90 percent of the members are gay.” Not coincidentally, Fr. Godfrey’s Doctor of Ministry dissertation was “Gays and Grays: the Story of the Gay Community at Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church.” And Godfrey is not shy about his attitude towards Most Holy Redeemer, or about Church teaching on sodomy. “The Church,” he says “which is so sick” (p130), “The institutional Church is blind” he says (p130), but it’s OK, because, he says “A parish such as Most Holy Redeemer calls the rest of the institution to conversion…” (p130). Two pages later admits, although it is scarcely necessary, “I will not feign academic objectivity: if such a thing really exists. I firmly believe in a new approach and a new vision in this area of ministry. In this I do have an ‘agenda.'”
if public health officials found ebola in the school, or any other danger to public health, it would be shut down. when the fda finds certain molds in pharmaceutical productions centers, sometimes they are permanently shut down with no appeal. when a far dealier spitiual threat happens, it would seem only natural to protect the children by shuttting down the infected school, perhaps permanently….or at least place the identifiable infection agents in quarantine. at least the demons in gadarene has the coutesy to agree it was time to when they became swimmiers
“Fr” Godfrey says the Church is sick!!!! Well, I’ve heard it all now.
I think you have misunderstood the Archbishop’s issues.
Dear Holy Father we NEED you!!!! This Father Godfrey needs a good talking to….like they use to say…..like a Dutch Uncle!!!
Although they advertise themselves as “Catholic”, they also advertise themselves as independent of the Catholic Church.
See the web site for “the Network of Sacred Heart Schools” in SFO.
They receive no financial support from either the Roman Catholic Church or the Society of the Sacred Heart.
They falsely advertise themselves as ‘Catholic
They do not use Sacred Scripture and also the CCC as a required basis of their teaching of the Faith.
Anyone old enough to remember the 1950s ‘horror’ flick, “The Blob” can visualize the gigantic, quivering mass of red jello that left a slime trail and consumed everything in its wake. Consider the 2015 version starring this Godfrey fellow as a multi-colored bulbous slug sliming the streets and devouring anyone not smart enough to get out of its way, antennae glistening and alert for more victims, pools of sticky wicked trailing from it entrails and you’ve got a take, cut and wrap it , time for an expresso.
Father Godfrey is a priest of the Most High.
“Never again accept an out of the way word about a Priest, and speak no unkind word (about them) EVEN IF IT WERE TRUE! Every Priest is My Vicar and My Heart will be sickened and insulted because of it! If you hear a judgment (against a Priest) pray a Hail Mary.”
Our Lord to Mutter Vogel
It has been reported that Mutter Vogel never said that, and that the quotation is spurious. It does sound awfully strange that Our Lord would tell us not to charitably correct an erring priest, especially one who has committed a serious sin such as teaching heresy, or one who has committed a serious crime such as molesting a child. I cannot believe for one minute that Our Lord would want us to keep silent about such things. I am not accusing the priest in the article above of those things as I have not read the article thoroughly and do not know him. I am just correcting your quotation, Anonymous.
Anne T., Our Lord did not say not to charitably correct an erring priest. I do not know how you are getting that out of it. I only used part of the quotation but even still… You seem to be twisting our Lord’s words.
All He does is emphasize that the Catholic moral teaching on sins of the tongue which comes from Him (the serious sins of gossip and detraction and calumny and grumbling) are even more offensive to God when done to a priest. He considers them as committed against Himself.
Anonymous, I am getting my impression of what she is supposed to have said from “The Pieta Prayer Book” that is still being sold in some Catholic gift shops. It is on page 34 under Criticism of Priests
I agree with much of it except there should be exceptions, such as when an innocent child is being taught serious error by a priest or has been molested by one and told it is all right. Those are times to DO SOMETHING about it, such as call the police, etc. I know there are priests who agree with me and feel that children should not be taught by any priest who would pollute their innocent minds. No good parent would ever knowingly let their young son or daughter confess to a priest who is telling them good is bad and evil is good.
Anne T. yes, of course.
Anonymous – you are wrong. We must all speak the TRUTH, no matter who is doing the public sinning.
Doctrine of the Faith –
CCC: ” 2467 Man tends by nature toward the truth.
He is obliged to honor and bear witness to it:
“It is in accordance with their dignity that all men, because they are persons . . . are both impelled by their nature and bound by a moral obligation to seek the truth, especially religious truth.
They are also bound to adhere to the truth once they come to know it and direct their whole lives in accordance with the demands of truth.”
CCC: ” 907 In accord with the knowledge, competence, and preeminence which they possess, [lay people] have the right and even at times a duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church,
and they have a right to make their opinion known to the other Christian faithful,
with due regard to the integrity of faith and morals and reverence toward their pastors, and with consideration for the common good and the dignity of persons.”
Is this serious???
Anonymous, the other Anonymous is getting the saying from some older prayer books that for the most part have good prayers in them. There is no evidence that a “Mutter Vogel” (Mother Bird in German) ever existed, though, from what can be found on line. Some obscure nun might have said it in the past trying to help Christians be charitable to priests, as we should be. If a Mother Superior did say it, she certainly would be using hyperbole, none the less, for there are times when we must speak out, though we should pray for all priests to be faithful.
It is from a private revelation. The book was published in 1929 in Germany.
The questioning of her very existence is from the Internet.
So is this:
She actually existed and was a member of my wife’s family. She is buried at the Waldfriedhof in Munich,Germany. She devoted her life to praying for priests. There was a book written about her life called “Mutter Vogls Weltweite Liebe” first published in 1961 in Germany. Unfortunately it was not translated into English, but we have a copy.
Yes, I have found more information on line about her. Was she Katherina Vogl who died around 1956, and who is being considered for sainthood?
That information seems to have been given to her for a specific time and condition. She seems to have been using hyperbole as some of what she said would surely contradict the passages from the John Paul II Catechisms that David quoted.
Ah, yes, “The Blob!” I did a childhood rendition of in book format with yellow construction paper with nondescript yarn binding.
Sadly, the slow and steady creep of the completely absurd seems to be overtaking many Catholics. But I’ve heard it said that denial is one of the biggest killers in emergency situations as many folks stall out in that stage, watching in amazement at the impending threat instead of getting the heck out of the way and/or combatting the threat.
Thanks for the memory, Dana. And the realistic warning. Just get out of the way.
Thanks, Ann…I suppose irs because I’m right- brained ! I often read a story like this and I get an image summing up what I’ve read. This homosexual juggernaut just rolls over everything in its path, getting ever bigger with the victims it consumes…mindless, soulless,relentless. I hope you still have your little book! So sweet…like a femine marvel comic. Haha. I still have a homemade menu from Dana’s Restaurant when I was 11 and cooked dinners for my family with entertainment following. ( jokes, slideshows) sorry to say, everyone disappeared immediately after dinner. One meal was egg rolls which was so hard because there was no prepackaged stuff..all from scratch. Everyone was starved because it took me so long but they were delicious…so good that everyone wanted more but there was just enough for one each, and that was the entire meal. Needless to say, that ended my career as a chef. :)
…ah,yes, the curse of creativity! Immediate image analogies. And yes, I still have my book – it was one of the few my mother saved.
Love the menu for the family – and glad you still have it. I once cooked a tuna casserole in a Tupperware bowl in the oven. Forget how old I was. I also had a penchant for doing dishes in very soapy water and then just letting them dry without rinsing. Creative time saver that just wasn’t very popular for some reason ;^)
It is peculiar how old science fiction movies are so pertinent to the current climate. Frequently I recall “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” (both of them are fine films) whenever I have to go through the current horror stories of contemporary Roman Catholicism — from Rome to San Francisco, from Manila to Buenos Aires — all these guys are just changing before our eyes — ah, but they are still Catholics….?
The image of Donald Sutherland with his mouth wide open and a screech coming out as he points out the “human” at the end of the movie is rather like CCD. Thanks or the visual, James. Spot on.
Yes. I agree James and Ann. Pod people!
How many of our current priests were educated in Sacred Heart schools I wonder? Are there any in seminary?
Why is Godfrey a priest? Why is O’Connor involved with the education of young men? Why are any homosexuals employed with Stuart Hall at all?
The circumstances involved are show criminal incompetence, from a Catholic perspective. Yes, Abp. Cordileone needs to re-assert Catholic morals, but, respectfully, he needs to start with the worst cases, not the easiest. Here are some ideas:
1. Close down Stuart Hall School for Boys for a period of two years. Use this time to (a) redo the curriculum to emphasize Catholic doctrine and truth, and to (b) hire faculty and administrators that adhere to the Catholic Faith and Catechism. Fire all employees that express disagreement with the Catholic Catechism; impose mandatory contracts with unequivocal language to require fidelity (or unemployment there).
2. Take steps to fire priests like Fr. Godfrey, and any other ordained or religious that refuses to adhere to the Catechism.
3. Impose a single, faithful teaching of the Catholic Faith, based on the Catechism, and include the Baltimore Catechism and other elements of orthodoxy.
4. Entirely re-purpose MHR Church, most notably as a center for the TLM. Alternatively, hand-over the administration of MHR to a Traditional Order, where only sacraments in the extraordinary form will be provided.
Be ready for media explosions against you, dear Archbishop, and possibly litigation. Be ready, but stay faithful.
Oh yes, all of the CCD blogger world should seek out the right to become auxiliary members of the SF Diocese, or at a Church you select within the Diocese, such as Star of the Sea. Get envelopes, make regular, modes, donations. And take steps to show solidarity with the Archbishop.
To repurpose MHR, which I think has been previously discussed and with a traditional priestly order in mind, would take considerable physical restoration. But any reconversion of that space to a more traditional sanctuary design would be a huge improvement. The windows are nice and the church has a proper choir loft. Parking in that neighborhood is difficult but not impossible.
When the homo-nazi reich targeted Boys – they destroyed the Boy Scouts in Germany and instituted the ‘hitler youth’ – run by the Homo-Anal Coprophile founder of the party and leader of its homosex terrorist Storm Troopers – Ernst Rohm… And his syphilitic prostitute protege / boyfriend hitler. The nightmare of Radical Homosex Indoctrination that destroyed that republic now threatens ours – and it is being done ‘in committee’ – while the Faithful are kept in the dark and fed homosex hate propaganda gussied up as ‘tolerance’ – for the Sick Exterminationist Misandry & Vile Coprophile Behaviors that are their ‘happy faith’.
Court May Deny Religious Liberty of Catholic Schools
The key battleground for the federal government’s twenty-first-century assault on religious freedom may be Catholic education—in particular, those faithful Catholic institutions that refuse to surrender and remain committed to Christ and His teachings as they come to us through the Church.
On Tuesday, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, Jr., told the Supreme Court that religious colleges could lose their tax exemption and suffer other penalties if the Court redefines marriage.
Certainly this could affect Evangelical Christian, Mormon and other religious colleges, as well as all religious apostolates that adhere to the natural definition of marriage. But Catholic education especially has been targeted by LGBT activists, from within and without.
Good suggestions but…
1) Close down school–PETE comments in this topic that the school is independent of the Catholic Church.
4) Most Holy Redeemer used to have a TLM. Not sure what happened there. I’m afraid that a change from the current operations there would cause an uproar more massive than we have seen with the morality clause or Star of the Sea. Maybe someone is getting their ducks in a row on that, though! We certainly need missionaries in that wilderness.
Yes, we need to be ready for media explosions. How can we come together and be prepared? Social media has demonstrated that there is a lot of support for the archbishop, even world wide!. How can we connect and organize? “They” will be trying to fragment us.
” the school is independent of the Catholic Church.” – is on the School’s web site.
http://www.cavecalifornia.com has again reminded us of the Annual Homage to the Homosex Pederast / icon – Harvey Milk, used to spread the same type depravity ole harvey was so notorious for:
“Parents, grandparents, listen up! Homosexual activists are working hard to tell children to be homosexual-bisexual-transsexual or to at least support this unnatural, unhealthy, unbiblical, and tyrannical agenda that tramples all that is good and sacred.
“Harvey Milk ‘Gay’ Day” is coming up May 22, targeting kids in California public schools. Please realize this, then protect your children, grandchildren, and other children by partnering with SaveCalifornia.com.
Just look at this article by homosexuals for homosexuals. They love the perverse Harvey Milk and want this sexual anarchist to be the biggest role model for innocent boys and girls — without parents even knowing about it. And because “Harvey Milk ‘Gay’ Day” is a statewide law for all students in all K-12 government schools, any teacher, principal, or school district that wants to brainwash students, will.
From the homosexual webzine East Bay Reporter: The Alameda Unified School District will observe Milk Day with an event the night of May 21. The East Bay Gay Men’s Chorus, as well as students from Alameda High School and Encinal High School, is expected to perform at the celebration planned for 6 to 8 p.m. at Alameda High School.
Sorry about the misprint – that is http://www.SaveCalifornia.com – a great website for those wanting information Censored by our bought and paid for ‘free press’ in this One Party State System.
Ah, the Fruits of Vatican II!
Oh, for goodness’ sake!
WHY would this EXPENSIVE Catholic school choose this man to be the celebrant for First Holy Communion for the children???
Are these people headless?
They seem to be directly attacking Archbishop Cordileone by making this choice, and if I were he, I would call the headmaster into my office and have a very serious “come to Jesus” talk with the man — or woman.
“Founded in 1887 as an independent, Catholic school, Schools of the Sacred Heart San Francisco carry on the educational mission of the Religious of the Sacred Heart.”
I suppose he could talk to the headperson but they wouldn’t have to listen.
A Diocese Bishop has the authority to publically tell any school, university, or organization that it may NOT advertise itself as “CATHOLIC” –
if it does not conform to the teaching of the Catholic Church (which is contained in the CCC.)
Code of Canon Law re Schools:
” Can. 803 §1. A Catholic school is understood as one which a competent ecclesiastical authority or a public ecclesiastical juridic person directs or which ecclesiastical authority recognizes as such through a written document.
§2. The instruction and education in a Catholic school must be grounded in the principles of Catholic doctrine;
teachers are to be outstanding in correct doctrine and integrity of life.
§3. Even if it is in fact Catholic, no school is to bear the name Catholic school without the consent of competent ecclesiastical authority. “
I know nothing about him. Never heard of him. What did he do that has got you so riled up?
Because he is a Sodomite, seeking to provide witness to this great evil, and to enable its acceptance within the Church.
Instead, Fr. Godfrey should be publicly rebuked, and defrocked.
My reply to you was meant to indicate that Archbishop Cordileone might call the headmaster of Stuart Hall to his office but 1) he would not be obligated to appear because the school is not affiliated with the archdiocese and 2) if the headmaster did pay a visit, he would not be obligated to do anything the archbishop asked of him because the school is not affiliated with the archdiocese.
Or were you responding to someone else?
The Archbishop has the right to demand that the word “Catholic” not be used to describe the school, its policies, or its affiliations.
See Canon 803 §3, “No school, even if it is in fact catholic, may bear the title ‘catholic school’ except by the consent of the competent ecclesiastical authority”. Canon 803, and related authorities, has lead to the removal of the term “catholic school” from a number of educational institutions. In Virginia, for example, it lead to the removal of the “Catholic” identity of Notre Dame High School in Middleburg, VA.
Abp. Cordileone could insist that this school no longer hold itself out as a “catholic” school in any way, shape, or form. To do so what be educational, and theological, fraud.
Too bad any parent would pay even one dollar to have a school tended to by a sodomite like “Fr.” Godfrey (who should be dismissed from any Catholic order, at least within the jurisdiction of SF). His presence is demonic and a scandal of major proportions to the “Catholic” students there.
Sorry but I just cannot understand how a “Catholic” school can also call itself “independent.”
If it is Catholic this should be clear by what it teaches and by who it employs and what it does.
If it starts going along the wrong path it should change it’s name and make it clear that it is no longer a real Catholic school but rather has decided to embrace the values “du jour” of the city.
Otherwise innocent parents will send innocent children there expecting a real Catholic education! :(
Look at the images of Our Lady of Fatima. The final image is the distraught in her eyes over the tragedies in her Son’s Bride!
Thank God there are places to go to Mass that aren’t touched by this evil promotion of sin!
I think we seriously lack Real Men in the world of today! Real Men– who can responsibly bear hard circumstances, maturely shun babyish self-gratifications, who can easily tell right from wrong, stand up quickly for what is right, make quick, firm decisions, not care if someone’s “feelings” have to get hurt temporarily– and do their manly job, unselfishly– for God, and to responsibly protect humanity! People who sin, should not complain, about their babyish “feelings” getting hurt! They must all GROW UP, and get over it!! Immoral Catholic schools must either be cleansed of sin– or be forever closed! Take your pick! And Almighty God knows all, and sees all! You cannot fool God!
Vatican II made a HORRIBLE mistake, allowing so-called “religious freedom!” And institutions and schools that are not of a diocese or archdiocese– are no longer under the local prelate’s control! They can do as they wish! This is one of the evil fruits of the false “springtime,” of Vatican II!! This evil of the misguided Church Fathers of Vatican II— is destroying the future of our Church, of our Nation– and of all civilization! We desperately need Real Men– NOT liberal “goofballs”– to guide our Church, and our Nation!!
I will say one more thing. Archbishop Cordileone, and Fr. Illo, are Real Men! Excellent! But they exist in a Church that has lost its true mission, for Christ! A Church guided by liberal “goofballs!”
Note that Bp. Barber cleared up the major problems at Newman Hall (as described above) quite quickly. Bp. (then) Cordileone did nothing.
‘Diversity’ in the pathetic farce of Academentia is only a little less common than respect for Facts, at least those which get in the way of radical Misandrist political agendas. While the ‘ivy league’ smells more like rotten tomatoes than most compost heaps, it is really the Brain Rot of the tenured professoriate who leech off the system (via Rich parents, Richer Government Loans…) to ‘justify’ their political tantrum theater as ‘educational.
Yeah, Right – pull the other one, it has bells on it.
Report: Harvard Faculty Supports Democrats a Whopping 96% of the Time
Leah Barkoukis – Townhall.com
It’s common knowledge that higher education institutions are dominated by left-leaning professors and administrators—and if you somehow missed that chapter, Townhall columnist Mike Adams, Campus Reform, or even a Google search will quickly fill you in. Nowhere is this political bias more prevalent, however, than at our nation’s Ivy League universities.
So, how bad is it? At institutions like Harvard, the numbers are truly staggering.
Republicans running for president might as well skip any fundraisers at Ivy League universities like Harvard, where a new analysis shows 96 percent of faculty donations over the last three years went to Democrats.
Academia in general, and the elite northeastern schools in particular, have long been seen as a bastion for left-wing professors. Nationally, about two-thirds of college professors say they are liberal and less than a tenth identify themselves as conservative, according to one study.
Church Militant TV was told not to use the term Catholic, despite their clear adherence to the Teachings of the Church – but nobody appears to have protected the ‘Trademark’ from these Radical Homosex Activists, who drag it through the filth they push as their ersatz fraud of ‘tolerance’ – for Evil.
THE VORTEX: ACCOUNTABLE TO NO ONE
Too many of the clergy, especially the higher clergy, act as though they are unaccountable to anyone. They behave like the Church belongs to them. They show a disturbing lack of humility and present an air of superiority that is decidedly unChrist-like. Heck, let’s face it — Brian Williams at NBC has far more accountability for far less wrongdoing than many of today’s bishops and senior clerics.
For example, the various bishops who supposedly oversee affairs at Catholic Relief Services have kept mum on the issue of an open homosexual in a sodomite marriage being one of the top dogs there. When asked by faithful Catholics what they were going to do about Vice President for Overseas Finance Rick Estridge being married to his sodomy partner, not a word in response to the evil situation — and it is evil…
Well said, Michael! The Catholic hierarchy was who the great Catholic historian Lord Acton had in mind when he wrote, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” I think what keeps the Church balanced and faithful are her saints,and her devoted and humble followers like Linda Maria who are obedient but aren’t blind to error.
Where are the parents in all of this? Do they consent to this? What Catholic parent in their right mind wouldn’t stand up and say something knowing that they’re paying good tuition to a so-called, “Catholic” school only to have their children indoctrinated by the LGBTQ mafia?! What does this say about parenting nowadays?
Just look at Baltimore…need you ask?
Homosexuality and Paedophilia: A Reference Guide
THE DISSIDENT is pleased to announce that this site will be serializing a new book Homosexuality and Paedophilia: A Reference Guide. Our last post about Peter Ashman was an excerpt from this book, written by a group of scholars from various universities and Christian organisations.
This new book is a useful compilation of a lot of available evidence on this subject. Next time you hear somebody say “There is no connection between homosexuality and paedophilia,” you can have all the facts ready. Just consult this handy A-Z. From Auden to Pasolini, from Oscar Wilde to Gore Vidal, most famous gays were paedophiles. and so were virtually all the founders and leaders of the “Gay” Rights movement.
Who says so? Well in most cases they did. Here is the evidence. It gives you the names, the dates and the sources to prove that the correlation is very strong and undeniable. The LGBT movement has always been a paedophile movement and its object is to destroy the family.
In this installment, we give you the Introduction…
God help these men and Fr. Godfrey who feel the need to spread their misguided thinking to such young children. And what is wrong with the parents of the First Communicants who allowed this to happen? They are just as bad the so called teachers and Donal Godfrey. They are all responsible for the direction they are pointing their children in. Is Donal Godfrey still a priest in the Archdiocese of S.F. It was my understanding he had joined another church…..NOT a Catholic one.
They all need our prayers…..especially the Rosary to Our Blessed Lady.
CONGREGATION FOR CATHOLIC EDUCATION
Concerning the Criteria for the Discernment of Vocations with regard to Persons with Homosexual Tendencies
in view of their Admission to the Seminary and to Holy Orders
… specific question, made more urgent by the current situation, and that is: whether to admit to the seminary and to holy orders candidates who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies.
1. Affective Maturity and Spiritual Fatherhood
2. Homosexuality and the Ordained Ministry
From the time of the Second Vatican Council until today, various Documents of the Magisterium, and especially the Catechism of the Catholic Church, have confirmed the teaching of the Church on homosexuality. The Catechism distinguishes between homosexual acts and homosexual tendencies.
Regarding acts, it teaches that Sacred Scripture presents them as grave sins. The Tradition has constantly considered them as intrinsically immoral and contrary to the natural law. Consequently, under no circumstance can they be approved…
In the light of such teaching, this Dicastery, in accord with the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, believes it necessary to state clearly that the Church, while profoundly respecting the persons in question, cannot admit to the seminary or to holy orders those who practise homosexuality, present deep-seated homosexual tendencies or support the so-called “gay culture”.
Many rich, liberal, immoral “Catholics in Name Only,” like Nancy Pelosi– send their kids to Schools of the Sacred Heart– which are no longer religious, and are extremely immoral, and heretical to Christ!! These evil “schools” are turning out little immoral “hellions,” for the future Church and Nation, among mostly the rich families! No doubt– many of the “Lying Catholics” who wrote up that full-page letter, in the Chronicle, recently– have sent their kids to Schools of the Sacred Heart! You can call up the Principal, Jaime Dominguez, for Stuart Hall for Boys– (the local Schools of the Sacred Heart boys’ elementary school) at (415) 563-2900 (main switchboard, for the Schools) and request to be transferred to Mr. Dominguez. Or else, you an email him, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course– it will do no good! What really needs to be done– is a total CRACKDOWN– by no less than the Vatican!! In another 20+ years from now– our Church and our country, will both see these grown-up rich, immoral, immature, liberal “hellions,” doing further destructions, Nancy Pelosi-style. (But I may not live to see that!)
