      What the heck does that mean? The blog is nice? The site is nice, the archbishop is nice, the weather is nice. I often wonder why people go in for politics and/or blogging when they can’t string a sentence together,. Gimme a break. The last thing for which I am in the mood right now is another troll. If your next comment is a comment, it will be released. Otherwise, goodbye. NICE knowing you…

      Note: I’ve removed/replaced your “username” which is nothing more than an inappropriate advertisement – certainly inappropriate for this blog.

    Your erstwhile troll was flogging hemp. Perhaps the Archbishop would do better with a puff on a spliff before his next ramble.

    These tired clerics have nothing to say. They abnegate their spiritual leadership duties to act as middle managers of buildings and human resources. It may as well be Tesco (where many former Catholics seem now to worship on Sunday).

    They’re effectively handing over the theological function to Joe Bloggs, uncatechised and unformed, in the delusion that this will “meet the world where it is”. A pointless and God-optional exercise that has been tried for decades by our, ahem, ‘separated brethren’.

    Dear bishops, man up.

      Andrew Q,

      Not so long ago, the Diocese of Paisley was preparing to put teenagers in charge of running things so uncatechised or not, that seem to be the future, and the future is thus NOT bright!

    The same all same all about Discernment and Listening, and surely He could have spoke from the Heart and not a script. At least He didn’t tell the Irish not to Burn Peat . If any Irishmen even cared about the Sinnod on Sinodality it’s news to us all.

    It astounds me how these modernists can turn every single thing into a call to include the “marginalised” but they never actually spell out what they mean, or who they mean by “marginalised”. That can only be because they know they are living in public sin, scandalous partnerships. I know some modernists do spell it out (James Martin SJ) but there as still some, like Archbishop Dermot Farrell in the video who speak in vague terms, so they must know that they are wrong to call for the normalising of any sins.

      This is so sugary my teeth hurt.

      Editor: please do not use the holy Name of Jesus in that way again on this blog.

      We are aware the Irish people use the Holy Name blasphemously a lot of the time. We discussed that issue in a previous blog here

      It’s decidedly UN-impressive. It shows neither true piety nor any remote Catholic sense, so as I say, whether you are from anti-Catholic Ireland or somewhere else, we do not tolerate that particular abuse of Our Lord here – never have and never will.

      No, tragically, they don’t know that they are wrong. That is the very nature of spiritual blindness, they cannot SEE that they are wrong. Hence, they are diabolically disorientated.

      Sometimes they do spell out who they mean by the marginalised, and it’s usually the LGBTQ+ Catholics. I think they watch not to spell it out sometimes because they know homosexual activity is classed as a serious sin, although not by Francis, LOL!

    Archbishop Farrell is addressing Muslims at their Eid festival. He might be said to know more about Islam than he does about Catholicism!

    It’s hard to believe that any Irish bishop could sink so low. He reduced the Christian faith to the usual humanitarian “virtues” – respect, tolerance etc. He’s all but denied Christ in that address to Muslims.

    January 21, 2020 At the Vatican, it is no longer the testimony of faith nor the salvation of souls that preoccupy them, but the instrumentalization of the Church institution for exclusively political ends.
    Apostasy is at all levels!
    They did not reform the Church, they shamelessly transformed it in defiance of all previous texts such as « Humanum genus » (Leo XIII April 20, 1884) in particular.
    To what extent can this hierarchy claim to be legitimate when it has turned its back on previous decisions clothed in papal infallibility? But if we have been deceived for more than twenty centuries, how can we trust leaders who claim to belong to a Church that they have in fact repudiated?
    At the disastrous Second Vatican Council, the bishops diverted the sacred heritage of the Church and harmed the Divine Majesty for the benefit of Freemasonry and its diabolical works and many would like us to believe that this robbery was breathed in and blessed by “the Holy Spirit who would have been complicit in this shameless attempt at destruction”!
    “By their fruits you will know them” (Matthew 12:33).
