Photos from Chilean Abuser-Priest Karadima's Church

With all the talk about Pope Francis' refusal to listen to Father Karadima's sexual abuse victims...
ABC news article about Francis' Karadima/Barros/Errazuriz problem...

 AND with the hinting around that Karadima was/ is some kind of traditionalist.  I thought it might be enlightening to look at the Church which was his center of operations for so many decades.

Perhaps you all can correct me if I am in error here, but I believe these are a couple of photos from the Church 'De El Bosque' in Santiago. Yes, at least there are vaulted ceilings.......but

1. Where is the Tabernacle?  AND

2. (most importantly for the purpose of this blog) Where is the ALTAR RAILING?

It seems to me that such a sanctuary layout --typical of post conciliar, versus-populum, priest-centered worship--is designed to eradicate kneeling during Holy Communion.

Scholars Dissect Ridley Scott's 2005 Crusader Film for Historical Accuracy

For the past two Monday's, Jay Steven Robert's 'Real Crusades History' youtube channel has been painstakingly treating 'Kingdom of Heaven'.

The verdict, so far is

1) The film is well shot and the costumes/clothing and ambience are accurate.

2) The theme of the movie, its blaring message, is demonstrably wrong, i.e. that the only noble Crusaders there were, were ones who shared modern-day agnosticism and cynicism and religious pluralism, (in other words, the 'good guys' believed and disbelieved whatever it was Ridley Scott believed and disbelieved at the time he directed the film).

3) btw, beheading the corpses of suicides as punishment for the next world unforgivable sin was not practiced.  This desecration of the hero's wife's corpse--by a Catholic priest-- at the beginning of the film features highly in the film's story line.

Lavender Wrath

Some of  positions taken lately by outspoken lesbians and homosexuals against same-sex marriage/adoption/IVF,etc, robertlopez and dolce+gabanna and salopards, are very brave!!!--I say brave because Lopez and Dolce /Gabanna have and will most definitely suffer withering economic and emotional attacks from the 'lavender community'.

And, speaking of withering attacks, I recently spoke with a woman whose story would fit right in with the stories that Robert Lopez has been documenting on his website.  The story of the dark, flip-side of coming-out-of -the-closet

the story goes....

She and her husband were married in the Church, had two boys and were active in the Church and even themselves trained altar servers.  Then, after twenty some years together, with boys in jr high and high school, the husband announced that he was leaving her for a man.  The husband and his boyfriend both have highly paid civil service jobs, but nevertheless that affluence did not cause him to give his wife a generous split.... he instead implemented a bridge-burning tactic and, among other things....

1. accused her of having sexual relations with their sons
2. accused their former marriage counselor of having sexual relations with his daughters

The above did cost the parties involved considerable legal fees, not to mention permanent bruising to their reputations and their psyches.

It is all quite wild!  Elton John's screaming threats against Dolce and Gabanna, the group-think-Mafia's trashing of Robert Lopez, this husband's character assassination of both his wife and someone who was trying to help him....

With the 'lavender community's' demonstrated penchant for organization and group-think and calumny and take-no-prisoners tactics, it all makes me wonder about  our large population of homosexual Catholic clergy and really if they had nothing to do with Pope Benedict's abdication and Pope Francis' elevation.

Crescat Blog's Katrina Fernandez denied Communion on the tongue at her Gramma's funeral

Friends :-(  you can read about it here....abbey-roads version  .  She and Terry Nelson, of Abbey-roads blog, are doing a great job of exposing this incident, along with this same parish's denial of last rites to her grandmother---because the same priest had farmed out this duty to lay people.

I'm afraid cases of clericalism, pastors who like to lord it over their  ignorant sheep, are on the rise

Voris' cases and mine 

I don't think either Katrina nor Terry would chalk this up to one more manifestation of the 'Francis effect', but I am kind of feeling that it is.
