Diocese of Fargo Implementing the “Dallas” Policy……? October 21, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, Basics, Dallas Diocese, episcopate, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, Liturgy, secularism, self-serving, the struggle for the Church.
…….that policy being to quietly but forcefully forbid priests from offering Mass Ad Orientem? That is precisely what occurred to more than one priest of this Diocese under former Bishop Farrell. I don’t know if the message was conveyed by “edict,” phone call, letter, e-mail, or carrier pigeon, but the message was conveyed, and the effect was immediate. I observed at least one case unfold before my eyes back in Aug/Sept 2008.
Eponymous Flower is reporting the Bishop of Fargo, John Folda, has done the same, but EF has received at least one denial from someone claiming to be a diocesan official, but the denial left a lot of wriggle room and subsequent questions were not answered.
At least four priests of the Diocese of Fargo, North Dakota have been forbidden by edict [at least a letter] from saying Mass the way Catholics have been praying it since the times of the Apostles. It’s not difficult to look for the source of such a diabolical animus against the traditions of the Church and the desire to confuse the laity…….
…….It is headed by Bishop John Thomas Folda, who was ordained for the diocese of Lincoln Nebraska and consecrated bishop on 19 June, 2013. He attended St. Charles Borromeo in Philadephia, which might be the source of his problem. One wouldn’t think a protege of Bishop Flavin wouldn’t be this bad.
We’ve gone through the motions and contacted the chancery, but they have not contacted us.
Feel free to contact the diocese about their deplorable ignorance of the traditions of the Church, if you can get through their menu maze. Diocese of Fargo: Liturgy “Expert” 5201 Bishops Blvd. S., Suite AFargo, ND 58104-7605 Phone: (701) 356-7900
I thought Lincoln was filled with naught but upright and orthodox men? Note the new Bishop of Tulsa who refused to renew Fr. Ripperberger’s nascent order of traditional exorcists (approved by former Bishop Slattery) in his diocese was also from Lincoln. That’s not supposed to be broadcast anymore, but it seems very relevant right now. Is Bishop Bruskewitz’ redoubt being deconstructed? I know they still ordain a whole pile of men a year.
