THE HOLY FATHER - 60 YEARS A PRIEST

Church Celebrates Pope Benedict XVI’s Ordination to the Priesthood 60 Years Ago
On 29th June, 1961 Joseph Alois Ratzinger and his older brother George, were ordained to the Priesthood in the Cathedral of Freising in Bavaria Germany. Now 83 Years old, Father Joseph Ratzinger, later Bishop, Cardinal and finally Pope Benedict XVI has much to reflect upon. His service in the Lord’s vineyard has been truly remarkable including time as one of the Periti or experts at the Second Vatican Council, his time as a University Professor during the 1968 student “madness” which nearly brought down the French Government and reduced Universities around much of Europe to anarchic shambles. Later still, he spent 25 years as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith working as Blessed Pope John Paul II’s “Right Hand Man” drawing the world’s lightning whilst the then Holy Father went out into the deep to evangelise and to teach. Through all of that long period, Cardinal Ratzinger’s gentle …

ARCHDIOCESE OF BRISBANE - THE BATHERSBY YEARS - THE SICK MAN OF THE AUSTRALIAN CHURCH

Image
In modern History, Turkey toward the end of Ottoman rule, was referred to as the "Sick Man of Europe" There is little doubt, that as the Epicopate of several of her Bishops drew toward their routine end , and another sought to avoid being deposed, Queensland was "the sick man"of the Church in Australia.





But a visitor from Rome, following closely on the heels of an Apostolic Visitator to troubled Toowoomba Diocese, received scant attention in the Mass Media. Yet he was a true heavyweight - Cardinal William Levada ( pronounced improbably as" LevAYda" in the best American tradition) Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

On 26th April, 2008,His Eminence Blessed and Opened the new Holy Spirit Regional Seminary, whose Campus is carved out of the Northern edge of the massive Campus of the former Pius XII Regional Seminary at Banyo, which is now the campus of Australian Catholic University in Brisbane( save for its grand Chapel which remains …

ARCHDIOCESE OF BRISBANE - THE BATHERSBY YEARS 2005 -2007 THE USUAL SUSPECTS

Image
2005 - 2006 Were characterised by the usual abuses by the Usual Suspects in the Archdiocese of Brisbane - all without hindrance from Archiepiscopal Authority. Even in the Cathedral , the terms of Redemptionis Sacramentum dated on the Feast of the Annunciation 2004 at Chapter IV 4.106 , were - and for that matter - still are completely ignored. The Precious Blood was not , and is not, consecrated in the Chalices , but in a large Silver Jug and poured - contrary to the Instruction, subsequently into the Chalices. This is not the greatest offence imaginable - but it is a considerable arrogance.


In June 2006 Archbishop Bathersby was reported as having written to all of his Priests saying that he wished to spend his last five years in office leading up to his July, 2011 Retirement, "leading the Archdiocese in prayer."


Meanwhile His Grace's Liturgical Il Supremo for the Archdiocese, Father Tom "Two Tables" Elich, continued to have difficulty in adjusting to his post- N…

GOSPEL COMMENTARY


"It is likely therefore, in this instance, that Jesus was using the word "repentance"to urge his brothers and sisters to abandon any thought of armed rebellion against the Romans..."


We Comment:


What planet has the writer come from? Never in the entire course of the Gospels does Our Divine Lord concern Himself with the political situation in Judea. This is as far out as the folk who would have us believe that the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was "a lack of hospitality"!! The book Archbishop Bathersby allowed to be printed is lurching ever further away from the reality of Christ.

GOSPEL COMMENTARY


"Believing that his life's purpose was the inauguration of the Kingdom, Jesus "SUGGESTED that it was still possible for GOD'S people....."


We Comment:

Jesus is God. He does NOT "believe". He "knows". He did not "suggest", He made it clear. Why is the Author trying to systematically…
