I’ve told you about the problems in San Antonio…. September 13, 2012Posted by tantamergo in Abortion, Basics, contraception, disaster, episcopate, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, priests, sadness, scandals, sickness, Society.
……well, Eponymous Flower gives us more evidence, like a priest endorsing pro-abort mayoral and congressional candidates, and new Bishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller offering Mass with illicit vessels for the Precious Blood:
…in the mayoral and state congressional race in San Antonio, Texas, Catholic incumbent Mayor Julian Castro and Representative Joaquin Castro are running on a pro-abort Obama-style platform. It’s unlikely that these two brothers were chastised about their pro-abort positions.
Enter center stage is what looks and claims to be a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of San Antonio. So far, the sleepy Catholic electorate of the city hasn’t paid much attention to an apparent endorsement being given to this man by Zeitgeist-Priest Father Jimmy Drennan. At this point, it also appears as though the local ordinary, Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller tacitly approves of this endorsement.
We don’t know if this Bishop is the kind who sues his faithful priests for teaching the Catholic Faith or whether he’s one of the growing number of Bishops who are reigning in dissenters and scandalmongers. He certainly loves at least one Liturgical abuse and appears below in a +Mahonyesque setting with carafes. He did in fact receive theology training in Los Angeles in the early 70s, according to Whispers in the Loggia.
Some photos of this disaster:
The short sleeve black clerical shirt is almost always a dead giveaway for a “dissenting” priest.
But what to expect in a Diocese where illicit vessels are used for the Consecration?
The vast majority of San Antonio residents are nominal Catholics. It is impossible to get elected in that town without winning the Catholic vote. But, San Antonio has routinely elected men with gravely immoral beliefs, beliefs counter to what the Church knows to be true. It appears the moral Doctrines of the Faith are not being well-inculcated in the souls there.
I have mentioned before how heterodox the Archdiocese of San Antonio is. In spite of former Archbishop Gomez’ reputation for orthodoxy, that was strictly relative, and his predecessor, +Flores, was very heterodox. Heterodoxy and heteropraxis – wrong belief and wrong practice – are very deeply inculcated in San Antonio. The Mass frequently has very strong protestant overtones, very few sanctuaries have tabernacles, few if any even possess a crucifix, there is a tremendously exaggerated focus on the ‘horizontal,’ anthropocentric view of the Mass and the Faith in general – San Antonio archdiocese truly embraces the more radical aspects of the ‘spirit of Vatican II.’
As I have also mentioned before, this seems to be consistent in dioceses with large hispanic populations. My theory is that this has to do with the collapse of the Faith in Mexico and other predominately Catholic nations, where the changes instituted after Vatican II (and government sponsored persecution) led to a massive vacuum where modernism, leftism, and protestantism have filled the void. The Church in Mexico is very, very sick. I could be wrong, but I know that several predominately hispanic dioceses are also some of the most problematic in the country – LA, El Paso, Orange, CA, San Antonio, Miami……the list goes on.
