Sister Lucia Didn’t Think Much of the Bishops….

Sister Lucia Didn’t Think Much of the Bishops….

I continue to read Mark Fellows book on Sister Lucia and it is a real eye-opener. He quotes from some of her correspondence. In one letter she wrote:

God willing, the meeting with the Archbishop of Mitilene will have gone well, and His Excellency will not be one of the chicken-hearted…I think the best course would be that things be done with the bishops’ full knowledge, but without them taking responsibility (as if they did not know), this is to say, to avoid the inconvenience of fears…Afterwards, when success comes, they can then declare that they took part in it.
What a realist she is. Most bishops are cowards and one must go around them while letting them know what one is doing. Then they can hide under the bed if things go badly and take full credit if things go well. Has anything changed since she wrote this in the late 1960s or 70s?

In another letter she elaborated on those in positions of responsibility:

Our poor Lord, Who saved us with such love, and how little understood He is! How little loved! How badly served! [I hear the echo here of Blessed Francisco’s lament, “Love is not loved!] It is painful to see such disorientation, and in so many people who occupy positions of responsibility!…
Voluntarily I sacrifice myself and offer my life to God, for peace in His Church, for priests and for all consecrated souls, above all for those who carry on so erroneously and so deceived!…this is why the devil has made such war against it (the Rosary). And what is worse is that he has succeeded in deluding and deceiving souls who have much responsibility because of the positions they occupy!… They are the blind leading the blind!…We pray, work, sacrifice ourselves and trust that — in the End, My Immaculate Heart Will Triumph!
Mary’s requests at Fatima were not frustrated by simple souls responding to her request to pray the rosary, but by those in authority who know better than the Mother of God what is good for the Church. Her requests will ultimately prevail, but the time will be late and there will be much suffering. Meanwhile, the chastisement continues with the increased assaults against peace by Islam, whose assault against Christendom was roundly defeated by the rosary at the Battle of Lepanto only to resurface now with the complicity of clerics proclaiming, “Peace, peace…” when there is no peace.

Pray the rosary. It is our surest “weapon” (besides the Eucharist) against the wiles of Satan. “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.”

    This all confirms what I read today in Mark Fellows book about Sister Lucia. She sure didn’t think much of the bishops and talked about clerics who are “blind guides.” Sad!

    Once Again, Fr. Paul Garrity Uses His Bulletin for Heresy

    Posted by TTC
    Saturday, December 5, 2015

    For those of you lucky enough to be unfamiliar with this situation in Boston, Fr. Garrity is a personal friend of Cardinal O’Malley’s. Upon Cardinal O’Malley’s appointment to Boston, this personal friendship gave Fr. Garrity the license to cause serious harm to others without repercussion or consequence.

    And boy, did he ever go to town.

    The boldness of the safety his friendship with the Cardinal provides to him is positively scandalous.

    The faithful are treated to outrageous misfeasance and malfeasance of the Sacrament of Holy Orders.

    This case illustrates the lengths an Archbishop will and can go to in order to enable a priest’s wrongdoing.

    You may remember a few months back, Fr. Garrity’s heresy was published in the Archbishop’s newspaper. Many Catholics took the time to reach out to Cardinal O’Malley to ask him to put an end to this scandal. Including Michael Hichborn’s passionate open letter to Cardinal O’Malley.

    The article was removed from the Cardinal’s newspaper and his supervisors assured Catholics they would do all in their power to end his 15 year history of public heresy. But Catholics familiar with Cardinal O’Malley’s guarantee of protection makes efforts of his subordinates to stop Fr. Garrity an exercise in futility.

    In 2013, Fr. Garrity went so far as to blaspheme the Holy Family.

    Fr. Garrity is taking advantage of the Church’s long history of coddling and protecting priests and is completely out of control.

    Knowing the Blessed Nativity has always been an opportunity for Fr. Garrity to blaspheme the Holy Family, I moseyed on over to his website to randomly open a few bulletins.

    I call your attention to the bulletin dated November 29, 2015, linked below:

    In it, Fr. Garrity once again implies Pope Francis is trying to jury rig the synod to approve of homosexual sex but his agenda was ‘sadly’ revised by imperfect and fallible men.

    The plot really thickens in the third paragraph of this disgraceful publication when he makes an outlandish and erroneous statement that the Synod provided the Holy Father some ‘space for a new look at the validity of second marriages’.

    Besides being a heresy, this is simply not true. It is a…I hate to use the word, but it is a…lie.

    He further suggests the synod affirmed the use of artificial contraception is not sinful as Humana Vitae is subordinate to a couples discernment of appropriate family size.

    Fr. Garrity has given thousands of readers the idea that all couples have to do is decide how many children they wish to have and that makes the use of abortifacients acceptable to Christ. Another lie.

    The seriousness of this dishonest assertion cannot be underestimated. He is obstructing these people from the absolution of sins which ultimately leads to the loss of their salvation. Not to mention the loss of his own salvation.

    After reading his morass on marriage, sex and contraception, one is left with the impression Fr. Garrity rejects the Deposit of Faith in its entirety.

    This man is robbing people of their salvation and has been doing so for a very long time without any consequence. No matter what Fr. Garrity says or does, his confidence that Cardinal O’Malley will protect him is manifest in his obstinate refusal to temper his obsession with publishing his own personal thoughts on the virtue of homosexual sex and the errors of infallible Church teaching.

    After all we have been through, how is it that a Cardinal Archbishop could protect a priest whom everyone paying attention knows is doing terrible damage to the salvation of souls?

    Faithful families have given ample notice to the Holy Father of the damage he is doing to Catechesis. He continues to empower heresy and apostasy. Notwithstanding how this sad situation plays itself out until the smoke rises again, it does not relieve Fr. Garrity’s immediate supervisors and Cardinal Archbishop of their own duties.
