$2.2 Million in Catholic Church money “blown” on Atlanta Archbishop’s posh new diggs

gregory

ATLANTA (AP) — The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Atlanta apologized Monday for building a $2.2 million mansion for himself, a decision criticized by local Catholics who cited the example of austerity set by the new pope.

Archbishop Wilton Gregory recently moved into a nearly 6,400-square-foot (595-square-meter) residence. Its construction was made possible by a large donation from the estate of Joseph Mitchell, nephew of Margaret Mitchell, author of “Gone With The Wind,” the Civil War epic that made his family wealthy. When Mitchell died in 2011, he left an estate worth more than $15 million to the archdiocese on the condition it be used for “general religious and charitable purposes.”

Editor’s note: The stories of legacies similarly squandered by Church prelates are legion. Even when such bequests have specific instructions and/or limitations included, a deceased person with no surviving family members typically has no one to see that his/her wishes are followed. A few years and a few personnel/policy changes later and anything becomes possible.

To put it quite simply: When you donate money – especially large sums of it – to the Catholic Church, the bishop can pretty much do with it whatever he wishes – no matter what – in which case your cash might be “Gone With the Wind”.

If underwriting the lifestyles of rich and famous bishops bothers you, then find something else to do with your money, before you die!

There has always been sin in the Catholic Church from the beginning of time, but it definitely has greatly multiplied since Vatican II and the sexual revolution of the 1960′s.

Smoke

Just when we most need the medicine for the evil virus that has entered the Church (true traditional Catholic teaching and the Latin Mass) those who want to administer it, are marginalized and silenced.  Even super progressive Pope Paul VI said: “the smoke of satan had entered the Church“.

Pope Francis: Jesus is a sinner…

“Jesus is a sinner, we take His own sins to Him and we tell Him, this is Yours and I’m going back out into the world to do it again. Jesus likes that.”

If this scandal is really Francis’ statement, then our Pope is a blasphemer and public heretic.

Incompetence, malfeasance and brutal politics manifest at the highest levels of the Catholic Church

Franciscans of the Immaculate Exonerated:
Correction of Commissar Volpi After Notification by Manelli Family

A reader sums things up for us: Still to this day there are no proven or formal charges of heresy, crime, or schism!. The so called “internal conflict” was generated, cultivated, and maintained by a few and seemingly deliberately over the past few years. Some malcontents, not living their Marian Vow, influenced others and turned a number of hearts against their founding fathers. Machinations have been and are going on behind the scenes with sympathetic ears in the hierarchy who do not care for anything of the traditional aspects of the Holy Church, even those the faithful have a full right to.

Reports of great suffering, even hunger, among the brothers is coming forward. Pray for the complete exoneration of the founders and a restoring of this holy Institute according to their direction and not the direction of a commissar or malcontents. A number of friars cannot in good conscience take the oath that the Novus Ordo is a ‘traditional’ expression of the Mass. It is not even though a valid liturgy. A number of friars are going home. The seminary is disbanded and holy vocations scattered.

Editor’s note: Once again, we have religious liberty for everyone, except for Traditional Catholics. That fellow who claimed, “Who am I to judge?” should have heeded his own words. Now we have the makings of a genuine scandal on our hands – and a totally unjust and unnecessary scandal, to boot! The military eqivalent of this kind of thing would be deliberately firing on your own troops. And that’s known as treason!

Somebody needs to get fired over this, but we all know that’s not going to happen. Why? Because instead of opposing and deposing the clerics who have worked to destroy the Catholic Church over the last forty years, the boys in the Vatican are instead, promoting them – and planning to declare a couple of them who have already died – as saints!

A huge scandal, all around!

I was born to devout Catholic parents and attended a Catholic school taught by devout priests and nuns.

We learned thoroughly our religious knowledge by means of the question and answer method called “catechism”. It consisted of 499 questions to which we memorized the 499 well-thought-out answers, word for word.

Our catechism dealt with all aspects of faith, morality and prayer. We attended Mass every Sunday and on seven other special yearly holidays.

Every day at home we prayed the Rosary, a meditation on the 15 most important events in the life of Jesus and his mother, Mary. We dearly loved our parents, our teachers, and our religion. We had a happy childhood.

When I was a teenager, there was a meeting of all the Catholic bishops of the world, about 2500 of them, in Rome. After the meeting, they published a book which said, among other things…

Editor’s note: This is just one of the many reasons that Muslims all around the world scoff at Catholic “New Evangelization” efforts. The referenced document “Nostre Aetate” was released on October 28, 1965 by Pope Pail VI. Like most Vatican II documents, it is poorly written, and it makes certain gratuitous, erroneous and even dangerous assumptions about a number of ethnic and religious groups.

In the case of Muslims, the writers of  Nostre Aetate assume that the pagan moon god of the Muslims is the one, true God that Christians worship, when the preponderance of the evidence clearly shows the opposite to be true.

The scariest part of all this is the fact that Pope Paul VI apparently intended Nostre Aetate to be an infallible statement of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. If that’s true, the only thing any sensible person can ask is “which Catholic Church might that be – the old one or the new one – since the real Catholic Church would never – ever – publish poor quality documents of this nature?

This is precisely the kind of nonsense you get when the liberals take over. It’s like they put that phony “signing guy” from Nelson Mandela’s funeral in charge of writing official Catholic Church documents.

A huge scandal, all around!

Pro-life leaders urge caution, while Pope, Cardinal Dolan praise controversial Nelson Mandela

CAPE TOWN, South Africa, December 6, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The death of South African former President Nelson ‘Madiba’ Rolihlahla Mandela on Thursday has led to an outpouring of glowing praise for the man most known for ending apartheid – a system of racial segregation.

However, pro-life leaders have warned that praise from Christian leaders is inappropriate given Mandela’s role in bringing abortion-on-demand and homosexual “marriage” to South Africa.

According to official statistics, nearly a million unborn children have been killed in South Africa since President Mandela signed legislation in 1996 permitting abortion on demand two years after taking office. Same-sex ‘marriage’ was legalized in 2006, with Mandela having supported it long before its passage.
