Archbishop Nolan: Rwanda Policy “Appalling” … Double-Living Priests in Glasgow, Not So Much

Editor writes…

It’s a pity that the Archbishop of Glasgow is not quite so appalled, it seems, by the information I passed to him recently, about a stack of double-living priests in the Archdiocese of Glasgow – his priests, who are making a living out of the Church while enjoying their “lives on the side”, to put it as delicately as possible.  Click here to read my letter to him published in the current (June) newsletter, page 7.   I’ve had no reply, as he continues to treat laity (or maybe it’s just us lay women) with contempt.  I will leave it there and refrain from commenting on his sheer nerve to stand there in front of a Scottish TV News camera to spout from his imaginary high moral ground.  Yes,  I will remain silent on that…

Whatever any of us thinks about the Government’s Rwanda policy of dealing with the problem of illegal immigration, nobody, surely, will be persuaded by Archbishop William Nolan speaking with forked tongue on the subject of immorality, in any of its many guises.

Share your thoughts on this hypocrisy, as well as your views on the whole Rwanda debate.

    So, the new archbishop of Glasgow is on the Immigration crisis bandwagon, opposing any attempts to keep us all safe from illegals, no doubt, an open-borders man by the sounds of it. Why am I not surprised?

    I’m not sure what to think about the Rwanda policy but it’s interesting that the usual suspects who shout “racism” at every turn, seem to be opposed to this policy because it’s sending the illegals to Africa. I’ve read that they chose Rwanda because it is a safe country and also they are looking for migrants to employ, to built the country up. A “win-win” situation, I would imagine.

    It’s laughable on a number of fronts that the archbishop of Glasgow is criticising the policy, not least because he has no responsibility for Immigration but he has total responsibility for his priests and should be making sure they are not stealing from the collection plates to fund a double-life. He’s picking his battles carefully, to make sure he’s on the most popular bandwagons. It’s shameful, really.

      It wouldn’t matter what the government tried to do to stop these illegal immigrants, the radical left-wingers, like Archbishop Nolan, would object. We have to let everyone in and not just let them in, feed them and house them, no expense spared.

      You don’t see the likes of him offering to take them into their homes. When they start doing that, I’ll maybe believe that they really do care and are not just virtue-signalling.

        Well said. Let them leave their front doors open to strangers without any questions asked, and THEN they can push for open borders. Silly sausages.

      In that short clip Archbishop Nolan shows himself to be a passenger on more than one bandwagon – at the very least, two. He’s on the immigration (with bells on) bandwagon, AND the climate change bandwagon, which he seems to be blaming for poverty at one point. God help us all – this, remember, is a prelate of the one, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church (except he’ll not see it that way – he’ll be a member of the ecumenical branch(es) of Christendom, which my Protestant minister friend describes as “shared apostasy”.

    Who does this Guy think He is of course He’s another Bergoglio Puppet.
    I see no problem with Mr Nolan Here if He or His ilk want Illegal Immigrants then let them House them. Feed them clothe them pay for their Children’s upbringing am sure Mr Nolan wouldn’t be all that Keen if the Illegal Immigrants were sent to Him.

    Is He not able to count. Last Month alone Mr Nolan over 10.000 illegal Immigrants arrived in Britain just about enough to fill your Mansion which You don’t Live in so take them in. Like the ED I find you Appalling. I have a Daughter Her Husband and 3 Grandchildren whom I have to top up every week now with their Food Bill do you not find that appalling . And I certainly ain’t a wealthy Man.

    For Gods sake Man have you no idea how much this is costing us .
    The 10.000 who arrived last Month is more than the Population of my Town. BTW at least 90% of these Illegals are Muslims. Unlike us Pakistan would probably sink their Dinghies. We personally have had enough of the Goody Goodies and speaking from experience. The words are easy Mr Nolan until You have to pay the price.

      Why do you keep calling bishops “Mr”? It’s a bit strange – I have sometimes read your comments over and over to see if I can work out who the “Mr” is, but I remember Editor commenting on it and the penny dropped. It’s quite confusing, if you don’t mind me saying so.

        Nicky I call those Bishops Mr because like Mr Nolan above they are not a sincere Shepherd as far as am concerned ( but only as far as am concerned I speak for no one else ) . Once they start acting as Catholic Bishops then I will certainly call them Bishop.

        These are the same Men who want to be called Catholic Bishops who not only closed our Catholic Churches but made no effort to open them and that Job fell to Protestants which was a Disgrace.
        Then they backed up Bergoglios
        T. C. and stopped our Sunday Latin Mass. Also the main reason for not calling Bergoglio Pope. After all it was He not Me who refused the Title Vicar of Christ.

        Also some ,although not all and I confess I certainly don’t know all The Scottish ones ,but The Irish Bishops still do not want Holy Communion distributed on the Tounge .

        If you read or follow other Catholic Sites, and I don’t mean Bergoglio Catholic Sites. You must surely know that nearly all Bergoglio Clergymen are Career Catholic Clergymen and sorry but that just doesn’t sit well with me .
        But again I am only talking about myself.

        I am not at all happy at your referencing bishops of the Church, even the worst of them, as “Mr”.

        I would consider it a personal compliment if you would not do that any more.

        Thank you.

    If he showed any concern for them risking their lives in those ridiculous float boats, that would be more like it. He hasn’t said a peep about the people-smugglers making a fortune out of this trafficking. No, just a chance to dig at a Tory government that’s all this is about.

    As for his ignoring the letter about the double-living priests – that’s absolutely disgraceful. If I ever found out that one of those priests was in my parish, I would sue the socks off the archdiocese when it came to light. To be going to Confession to one of these frauds, is unthinkable. He should be answering that letter or coming onto this blog to reassure everyone that he is doing something very serious about those bad priests.

      Michaela . That is something that is deplorable. The ED has sent this Man Clear Evidence of their double Lives.
      How can a Man who believes in The Catholic Faith stay as a Priest or Bishop if they lead a double life.
      For Gods sake and Our Sakes leave the Priesthood. Of course again as the ED said , they have to much of an easy Life. Mr Nolan does not need to top up His Family’s Food Shop everyweek.
      Although if I am wrong Sir I am right Here ready to accept your criticism and offer an apology.

    Publish it provided that you have rock solid evidence. Awareness is the key and important thing for any Catholics re priests double lives cos the laity have a right to know. It would enable any Catholics to withold their donations on weekly Sunday collections. Just be aware that the Catholic Church is dependent on our donations even though they have massive wealth squirrelled away somewhere.

      Francis de Sales,

      Trust me, I would have published every single name without a second thought but for one trifling detail that I won’t divulge at this time.

      Just keep praying for these dreadful priests – and for those who are complicit in their double-living. Catholic Truth has done all we can for now.

    looking at his face and that shabby Anglican-looking ecclesiastical garb screams to me that this is no true disciple of Our Lord Jesus Christ. That’s confirmed as soon as he opens his mouth and the humanism comes pouring out. How on earth did men like this ever make it to ordination, let alone to high episcopal office? It’s absolutely depressing to have these deadly liberal humanists presenting themselves as successors of the Apostles. The Church has never been so afflicted. Tragic!


    I should add here that while I agree about Archbishop Nolan’s pig ignorance when it comes to responding to your written communications, it would be remiss of me not to likewise highlight that the SSPX superiors in the UK and Menzingen are every bit as lacking in holy humility and good manners. Ecclesiastical pride is rife right through the Church in our time, even within so-called Traditional communities. You know how many times I have written to these latter with real and verifiable concerns only to be met with an indifferent silence. This is an era in which the spirit of Our Lord in higher ecclesial office has given place to that of the Pharisee. Too many intellectual self-servers and not enough humble servants of God. Lucifer is having a field day with the clergy in our time!

      I agree. There is never any excuse for ignoring communications – ignoring a written communication is no different from ignoring verbal communications. I wonder if these priests and prelates would actually ignore someone who speaks to them in a room. I would imagine not. To quote Hilaire Belloc, The grace of God is courtesy.

      As well as a lack of courtesy, ignoring written concerns suggests a lack of skill in dealing with concerns and controversy. Not something one expects to find in anyone holding a leadership position.

      If, as may be the case, the Archbishop of Glasgow does not deal speedily with the priests on the list I sent him, then he is doing the devil’s work. And if he falls for any of the tall stories (such as those in the legal letter sent to me – priceless) then he’s not one of those “fools for Christ” of whom St Paul speaks – he’s just a fool.

      We need to pray for these men – they, each one of them, face a terrible judgment, whether for making life unnecessarily difficult and confusing for the laity during this time of crisis, or for their complicity in sexual infidelity – whatever, they need our prayers.

        Very well put – I agree on all points.

        I don’t know if there’s any truth to the story, but I was told this morning that St. Aloysius school in Glasgow are set to approve boys in skirts, presumably with permission of the local Jesuits. It sounds too publicly evil for me to believe immediately but having just read of a priest in Bologna, Italy, who celebrated a Mass of “thanksgiving” for two men in a “gay marriage”, nothing shocks me now.

        I can tell you, though, that one look at Archbishop Nolan told me instantly what he is. There is not the slightest holiness or priestliness in his countenance – a dead giveaway!

      Athanasius I agree with you 100% which is why I cannot give these Career Clergymen Respect of their office. In fact I believe and am sure am 110% correct. That Bergoglio will never promote a Catholic Clergyman.

    This is a very good example of what is involved in the “silent apostasy”: it is not only a complete abandonment of the Faith, it is the replacement of the Faith with a fake one – social justice. That is the legacy of the current pontificate.

    The inaction of this Archbishop leads me to suspect another factor: threats of blackmail. In short, is he already compromised?

      The present Pope is only bringing to fruition what was intended by the infiltrators at Vatican II. Apostasy from the true religion by replacing it with a false alternative was always the goal of the Conciliar revolutionaries. But like faithful servants of the Freemasonic worldview, the dirty work was done by degrees until sufficient damage had been done to the faith to bring on a Communist-thinking Pope.

        I agree. This present situation does give us one advantage, however: the wreckage is now so plainly visible that it becomes very difficult to deny it.

        I suppose, though, that being in a state of denial is still the recourse of the passive and the brainwashed. Just like with the scamdemic and the “vaccines.” Also, just like with the health dictatorship, there are those who are convinced that the French Revolution of the Church was a good thing…

        Reminds me of a line from an old Simon & Garfunkel song, “The Boxer”: “A man hears what he wants to hear, and disregards the rest.”

    Athanasius we know that Bergoglio is an Atheist at best and a Communist at worst. I was listening to a Good a Very Good American Catholic Priest speak of Communism being in no Hurry it will get there. The recording is in 1963. How right He is and now it is most certainly in the Highest Echolons of Our Catholic Church.

      I never saw their uniform policy before today, just checked it a minute ago and it doesn’t say anything about boys or girls uniform – is that something that has changed, otherwise, I would just assume that skirts meant girls uniform

      I’m still struggling with this trans stuff so if you can confirm that, I’d be grateful. Is it likely that boys will be allowed to start wearing skirts to St Aloysius? Or do the priests assume everyone will know that it is meant for girls?

        Margaret Mary

        The source from the school who is highly placed maintained that the policy is now technically speaking open to alternative applications for boys and girls.

        The literature as yet has not been publicly altered thus far however as l have been informed by this individual that the school policy has been amended internally to cover this transgender ideology.

        As they put it to me if a girl chooses to wear trousers etc etc and all things being equal if a boy decides to choose to wear a skirt well the policy allows for personal choice etc.

        Itโ€™s a shocking state of affairs either way. I hope this has been helpful the individual concerned will keep me posted of additional developments.

        Every blessing

        Yes, that is very helpful, if worrying as well. If a top Catholic school like St Aloysius goes woke, that crosses a line somewhere. I wonder if any parents will object. Time will tell, I suppose.

    I think it’s obvious that the new archbishop of Glasgow is not going to be any way an improvement on his predecessors. We’ve had scandals galore, even the murder of the Polish student lodging at St Pat’s Anderson, and still they don’t learn the lesson.

      On the subject of hypocrisy, I can never forget the definition which Francois De La Rochefoucauld gave of it when he said that it is the homage which vice pays to virtue.

      That said, have any of you ever asked yourselves why the Catholic Church in Scotland exists? I mean, what conclusion would a Martian come to if he came to earth and simply observed us going about our daily affairs.

      I am loathe to say it, but think the inescapable conclusion to which an impartial observer would arrive at the present juncture is that the Church exists for no other reason than to maintain the clergy. Sure, I know good priests who proclaim Christ not just with their lips but with their lives. But institutionally? Christ is practically never mentioned. This is why Archbishopโ€™s Nolanโ€™s banging on about immigrants and the environment rings so hollow. What was it somebody said about works without faith?
