How in the heck?!? Scumbag sodomite McCarrick somehow winds up 60 miles from my family farm? November 5, 2018

More than just 60 miles away – I’ve been to St. Fidelis several times.  The church is as beautiful as the Masses offered there by these Capuchins are as bland Novus Ordo as they come.  In fact, the church is just about half a mile south of I-70 in Victoria, KS, about 10 minutes east of the medium sized town of Hays.  So I will have to drive past this son of a gun every time I go to my farm.

The townspeople and people of the Diocese of Salina are none too pleased at this development.  McCarrick will also be within a few dozen yards of the local school.  And no, those facilities are not sequestered at all, they all share the same lot and there is no fencing or any substantive barriers in between – at least there were not as little as 6 months ago.  Typically, local Church officials in Kansas did not bother to inform either the school or local residents before placing this disgraced monster in their midst.

So while this may seem like a banishment to the outer hinterlands and a real sequestration of McCarrick, I wouldn’t be so sure.  If he is allowed to roam, he can be in Denver in 7 hours or Kansas City in 5.  From there, the world.  We’ve certainly learned of the escapades of other priests and prelates who were supposedly “banished” to a life of prayer and penance, and yet they kept le bon temps roulez, no?

Sockcuckers:

 A school official in the small town of Victoria, Kansas says Church leaders did not inform them that the disgraced former cardinal, Theodore McCarrick, would be moving in next door to an elementary school.

The Archdiocese of Washington announced Friday that McCarrick, 88, had moved into St. Fidelis Friary in Victoria, with the permission of the local bishop, Gerald L. Vincke of the Diocese of Salina.

The friary is attached to the Basilica of St. Fidelis, which is right next door to Victoria Elementary School and only five blocks from Victoria High School.

“I was never made aware of it until I found out through social media today,” Kent Michel, the elementary school’s principal, told the Kansas City Star on Friday.

The Star says they asked Michel if the school had told parents of McCarrick’s new living arrangements, and he replied, “I’ll be getting with my board. I really don’t have a comment on it right now.”

McCarrick, the former Archbishop of Washington, DC, and a prominent liberal, lost his cardinal’s hat and was told to withdraw from public ministry in July after a credible accusation that he sexually abused a teenager.

Pope Francis named Vincke as bishop of Salina in June. He was consecrated and installed as bishop on August 22.

Vincke told the Star: “I am not aware that the school was notified, but I need to double check with the friary.”

In a letter to the faithful yesterday, Bishop Vincke explained why he welcomed McCarrick into the diocese.

“I realize this decision will be offensive and hurtful to many people,” he said. “Please know that I agreed to this arrangement with the understanding that Archbishop McCarrick is excluded from any public appearances and ministry. Our diocese is not incurring any cost in this arrangement.”

“In saying ‘yes,’ I had to reconcile my own feelings of disappointment, anger and even resentment toward Archbishop McCarrick,” said the bishop.  “I had to turn to Christ for guidance.”

Because Christ was all about total forgiveness for the utterly unrepentant.  Even more, Christ always spoke about how wise it was to expose the most vulnerable of sheep to the most ravening of wolves.

I hope I can attend this tomorrow night.  Solemn Vespers for the Dead in the traditional Rite will be offered Nov 6 on the campus of the University of Dallas at 7:30 pm at the Church of the Incarnation.  All details below:

Check out the generous confession times at the Church of the Incarnation, too – 45 minutes a day or more Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sat.

I heard the Catholic Action for Faith and Family Conference was a big success.  My daughter was there yesterday to sing in the schola for the solemn pontifical low Mass Cardinal Burke offered on Sunday morning.  Many other events over the weekend were sparsely attended because so many other folks were off at the big conference at the Irving convention center.  Bishop Burns was there.  I’ve heard some other good things about Bishop Burns in the last several days on other fronts.  Even though he is closely associated with the sad triad of Wuerl/McCarrick/Farrell he seems cut from a bit different cloth.

But the opening of the diocesan records on priest boy rape is a nothingburger.  It’s all been carefully checked over in advance but there may be a few belated revelations.

All that aside, I have a small but growing pious hope that in Bishop Burns Dallas has finally gotten someone a bit virtuous as bishop.
