"The floor of hell is paved with the skulls of bishops." -- St. John Chrysostom
Did he really say that? No one really knows.
"Priests, My Son's ministers, priests, by their evil life, by their irreverences and their impiety in celebrating the holy mysteries, love of money, love of honor and pleasures, priests have become sewers of impurity." Our Lady of La Salette
Did the Blessed Virgin really say that? No one really knows.
"The black beast like a leopard indicates Freemasonry; the beast with the two horns like a lamb indicates Freemasonry infiltrated into the interior of the Church, that is to say, ecclesiastical Masonry, which has spread especially among the members of the hierarchy. This masonic infiltration, in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by Me at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in even to the summit of the Church."
Did the Queen of Heaven really say that to Father Gobbi? No one really knows.
"But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh." Matthew 18:6-7.
Did Jesus really say those words? No one really knows.
Yes, it's easy to say that the above quotes cannot be confirmed or verified or whatever.
Because if the bishops admit that these statements are accurate, well, who is the subject?
And so our bishops neglect the spiritual realities that surround them and, instead, concern themselves with the temporal: $$$.
It's not easy to keep paying those "settlements," lawyer fees and court costs. Why, they even have to seek relief in the masonic bankruptcy court to wiggle out what a fine mess they are in.
But there is another way.
Yes, the Beatles sang All You Need Is Love, but the Rutles proclaimed All You Need Is Cash.
And the bishops of AmChurch have certainly shown their priority: all you need is cash.
Just ask their subordinate victims.
Below is just a partial list of those whom the bishops feel owe them; not because the bishop helped anyone of them in their spiritual endeavors. Indeed, many have been an obstacle to the spirituality of these individuals and their groups.
But they all have two things in common now. They once had money from supporters who received spiritual blessings from their work; and they once were an independent operation specifically because the bishop could not be counted on to promote their work; indeed hinder it.
So while we may, as an individual, not have been associated or supported some of these individuals, their group and their work, they all quite "coincidentally" share the same fate.
Besides the current victim, Father Frank, the most controversial is:
-- Father (or should we say former Father) John Corapi.
-- How about former Mother Nadine Brown. Hey, nice piece of property ya got there. Yeah, listen, we're gonna break up that little org of yours, okay?
-- Mother Angelica (you just can't go talking against cardinals now, mother).
-- Father Stefano Gobbi (are you kidding us; you don't really think the bishops believe the Virgin gave you all those messages. Youse was just makin' it up, wasn't ya?)
-- Father Nicholas Gruner (hey, get off the bandwagon already, will ya?)
-- Father Malachi Martin (we got rid a him and he only wrote fiction).
-- The Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (what, you thought it was just Corapi's money the good bishop was after? Then how come he has suspended the entire activities of the society turning good men into priests by ending all seminary work? And why is everyone in the society, priests and nuns, on hold for two years while he "investigates"? Oh, you didn't hear that in the media? You just thought this was a Corapi thing? Yeah, Father Flannigan needs investigatin', for sure. Lots of property there for ye 'ol bishop to confiscate and sell off).
-- Oh yeah, and let's not forget that Sister Joseph Therese with Our Lady of America stuff. We can make a killin' off a dis if we can just get her out of the way. Now how can we get rid of her? Claim she's not a nun? Yeah, that's the ticket. Maybe most Catholics won't notice the hypocrisy that if we claim she's not a nun than the same thing could be said of her companion, the visionary, Sister Millie. Nah. No one will notice. We'll just put out a "decree" and because we're the bishops, the people will believe us. What was that someone said recently about us? Well if they're the bishop, they must know somethin'! Yeah. We know we're the money is. Messages? What messages? We don't have to enthrone no statue; we'll just make a lot of cash and divert attention somewhere else, say one state instead of all fifty).
And the priest who murdered the nun on Holy Saturday (he used to listen to that blasphemous group black sabbath) and was convicted and accused of other evil rituals ; nah, even though he is in the same diocese as Sister Joseph, we won't defrock him. Sister Joe's our real problem.
There are more "all you need is cash" victims in this list; perhaps you know of one or two?
Now as for "obedience" to these bishops; well, if you want to see more scandal, more Church closings, more irreverence during the Mass, more loss of the faith, more bankruptcies, more loss of moral authority before the world, governments, people, etc., then, yes, say nothing and just nod your head.
However, if you want to stand with Christ (think St. Athanasius) and that you were obedient to His Truths and stood up for Him and His Mother, then we can no longer put our heads in the sand and claim the bishop must know something.
Because, as they continue their autodestruction of Catholicism as the Saints knew it and taught it, we become accomplices with them.
We may not be shooting the teller during the bank robbery, but if we continue to remain silent we are surely driving the getaway car.
Even if we should die during the theft, we would rather stand before Christ our King and plead that we tried to stop the thieves before they got away with it all.
We cannot stop them if we continue to remain silent and let them spread the "smoke of satan."
What scandal of these scandal will it take for us as Catholics to call to account those who think they are unaccountable? Are we still paying a pension plan for former archbishop and confessed gay abuser Weakland? What will it take to excommunicate the "management"?
Indeed, Jesus Himself is now Warning us that even further drastic changes are coming within His Church that will contradict the very Truth of the Scriptures.
Where will you stand? With Him or in "obedience" to sin and the sinners who perpetuate it?
And so now Father Frank Pavone is the latest target of the wrath of the bishops for having the audacity to be successful.
It is not his success in bringing the issue of issues to the forefront -- something most bishops appear to be "risk-averse" regarding this evil.
No, it is his "success," like others around him to be financially self-sufficient.
Perhaps, while we hear so much of the bishop's public letters of condemnation against Father Frank, there was an unrecorded conversation previously between he and the bishop that might have went something like this:
"Father Frank. How are you?"
"Fine Bishop Zurek. How are you?"
"Just fine, Frank, just fine."
"What can I do for you, Your Excellency?"
"Well, Frank, to be quite frank, we have been noticing how much cash you have been able to raise with your organization."
"Yes, bishop, the Lord has been blessing our mission."
"Yes, we've noticed here. BTW, did you realize I've inherited a diocese that has financial difficulties? We've been able to keep it out of the media recently, but we are still struggling to make ends meet."
"Sorry to hear that, Your Excellency. I will pray for your needs."
"Well, Frank, we were hoping you would do a little more than just pray, so to speak."
"What exactly are you saying, Bishop Zurek?"
"Well, Frank, let's face it, your organization is well-financed and you owe your allegiance to us."
"What exactly do I 'owe' you, Your Excellency?"
"Let's just say Father that a "contribution of O, I don't know, perhaps, 40 percent, or roughly, I don't have my calculator handy, say $4 million would be correct."
"$4 million? Your Excellency, that money was not donated for the purposes of the diocese of Amarillo, but for the work of the Priests for Life. I couldn't possibly acquiesce to such a demand."
"Demand? Are you insinuating, Father Frank that I am 'demanding' payment from you?"
"No, Your Excellency. Just talking out loud about what our supporters believe they are contributing towards."
"Well, Father Frank, let me tell you that without me your supporters do not have anything to contribute to. I will be sending you a further communique regarding this matter shortly in the future. And, as your bishop, I demand that you report to me by September 13."
"Your Excellency, I will be in Amarillo by that date. When shall I meet with you?"
"Er, Father, I will be busy traveling that week and will not be able to meet with you. Please ensure you do not inform anyone of my travel plans as part of your obedience to me as your bishop."
"Where will you be, Your Excellency, in case of emergency that I may contact you to avoid perpetuating any scandal in the Church?"
"Unfortunately, Father Frank, I will be on vacation at that time in Brazil and the beach I will be staying at, I believe, does not have cell phone service. We'll discuss your situation when I get back after my exhausting trip."
