The Pope’s Point Man in the USA on the Sex Abuse Crisis

 

Cardinal Cupich of Chicago responds to the allegations in the Vigano Letter. This is outrageous.

“The Pope knows we have a bigger agenda. He’s got to get on with other things, of talking about the environment and protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the church. We’re not going to go down a rabbit hole on this. … …Quite frankly, they also don’t like him because he’s a Latino.” —Cardinal Cupich

    So, this Cardinal says that the Pope doesn’t have time to deal with petty matters like a massive coverup of sexual abuses of children in the Catholic church, because he is so busy dealing with important matters of the Catholic church, such as:

    Scott Wilmot: “The Pope knows we have a bigger agenda. He’s got to get on with other things, of talking about the environment and protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the church.

    That is what he thinks the Catholic church’s mission is. The man is a Cardinal.

    The Catholic church, believe it or not, may actually have bigger problems than this sexual abuse scandal cover up. It apparently doesn’t even know why it exists, or what its purpose is. My goodness.

    Absolutely unbelievable.

    Cupich: “Squirrel!!!!! On second thought, racist squirrel!!!!” 

    I agree with Fr. Z:

    You know what we need?

    We need, oh please, even more interviews with Card. Cupich, as well as with Cards. Tobin and Farrell and Wuerl….

    At least the Cardinal isn’t a Jesuit. This is depressing enough.

    I’ll say it again … these times remind me of Pope Paul VI’s quote that “from some fissure the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God.”

    Cupich is the Pope’s main sycophant in the USA. He was promoted by McCarrick (that is the accusation from Viganò) He is part of the lavender mafia. It is a real question whether or not he has supernatural faith. The man is a disgrace.

    It is unbelievable as you say. That is why we the faithful are calling for the cleansing of this filth from the Church.

    To say that the Church doesn’t know its mission is as outrageous as what Cupich said.

    I don’t disagree with you. But he doesn’t speak for the Church. That is why many call for his resignation.

    Both Pope Francis and Cardinal Cupich (of my Archdiocese) rubbed me the wrong way from the get go.

    At least current events prove my people judging instincts are still functioning on all cylinders

    Pope Francis seemed to go strangely out of his way to pay homage to useless Lefty axioms.

    Cupich tried to shut down our Parish School, and it was not that closing certain Parish Schools is necessarily the wrong thing to do in all instances, it’s just the way the Chicago Archdiocese/Cardinal Cupich went about it in this instance.

    It reminded me of:

    He’s on my list, along with some of the other usual suspects. The protectors of Pope Francis, and those who will not be able to withstand an investigation are starting to fight back. You are not going to get the full story from them, nor will you get the full story from:

    The National Catholic Reporter (Every heresy fit to print, and some that are not fit to print).

    Crux (National Catholic Reporter Lite).

    A voice of one a few crying in the desert:

    From the document of Archbishop Viganò one can draw the following conclusions:

    (1) That the Holy See and the Pope himself will start to cleanse uncompromisingly the Roman Curia and the episcopate from homosexual cliques and networks.

    (2) That the Pope will proclaim unambiguously the Divine doctrine about the grievously sinful character of homosexual acts.

    (3) That there will be issued peremptory and detailed norms, which will prevent the ordination of men with a homosexual tendency.

    (4) That the Pope restores the purity and unambiguity of the entire Catholic doctrine in teaching and preaching.

    (5) That there will be restored in the Church through papal and episcopal teaching and through practical norms the ever valid Christian ascesis: the exercises of fasting, of corporal penitence, of abnegations.

    (6) That there will be restored in the Church the spirit and the praxis of reparation and expiation for sins committed.

    (7) That there will start in the Church a securely guaranteed selection process of candidates to the episcopacy, who are demonstrably true men of God; and that it would be better to leave the dioceses several years without a bishop rather than to appoint a candidate who is not a true man of God in prayer, in doctrine and in moral life.

    (8) That there will start in the Church a movement especially among cardinals, bishops and priests to renounce any compromise and any flirt with the world.

    Thank you Bishop Athanasius Schneider, but I’m afraid Pope Francis will do nothing at all.

    It is almost incomprehensible to fathom the evil that these sodomites perpetuate in the Vatican. These are evil evil men.

    All faithful Catholics and men of good will should listen to this podcast by Ann Barnhardt. She has been villivied as a nut job by many Catholics and the secular world, but everything she has been saying since the “election” of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope has come to pass.

    Pope Benedict XVI – we desperately need to hear from you. My prayers cry out for your safety and for your courage. Do not disappoint us again Holy Father Benedict. There is no one in the Church Militant to whom I look up to more than you. We need your witness Father.

    St. Augustine, pray for us.

    And now he’s instituting a program essentially combining several parishes in an area. At least that’s the case in my area as we’re going to begin a process of combining efforts (and my guess is assets too). It’s galling. Most of the parishes in Chicago were built by the extremely poor, and now my parish will be cannibalized to prop up other parishes who can’t support themselves? I have an idea: instead of tearing down strong parishes in an attempt to prop up dying parishes, let’s throw out the pederasts and their enablers and then let’s start teaching the faith again.
