Final Installment (Part 3) of Bishop Lynch's Booty Call Conference

The third and final installment of Bishop Lynch's Booty Call Conference, which Cardinal O'Malley's highest ranking priest in the Archdiocese, J Bryan Hehir, is keynoting, has been posted at Bryan Hehir Exposed.

Among the most doctrinally disturbing Bishops in the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops,  Lynch banned Eucharistic Adoration.

For parishes that wish to inaugurate adoration of the Blessed Sacrament the Bishop says they should “reflect on… their commitment of time and money to social services.” Among other reflections, they should ask, ” Does the eucharistic bread look like bread?"

I just can't speak to this offense against the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord.   My blood pressure skyrockets.  Nothing disgusts me more.

What in inquiring minds want to know is why Lynch hasn't been removed in the "zero tolerance" policies of priests accused of sexual impropriety.   Lynch paid off a former employee to the tune of $100,000 against a claim he was making sexual advances towards him.

How can this be?

Why are Bishops who make sexual advances being held to a different standard than priests?

More importantly, with the history of paying off an employee for making sexual advances, Bishop Lynch has rounded up a priest who is well-known for his shtick as sexualizing priests with homosexual attraction.    His shtick is running around the country pushing the sexual activity buttons of homosexual priests.

Cardinal O'Malley's numero uno priest in the Archdiocese of Boston is a keynote speaker at this conference.  

Please, call the Nuncio and stop this travesty.  Follow the links on Bryan Hehir Exposed and make the phone call.

I AM MORE than Outraged!!!
So would Benedict if He only knew...The Eucharist: Heart Of Christian Life
VATICAN CITY, 15 APRIL 2010 (VIS) - Today the Holy Father received the prelates of the North II Region of the Brazilian National Conference of Bishops on the conclusion of their ad limina visit.

Speaking of the Eucharist, the Pope recalled that it constitutes "the centre and permanent source of the Petrine ministry, the heart of the Christian life, source and summit of the Church's mission of evangelization. You can thus understand the concern of the Successor of Peter for all that can obfuscate this most essential point of the Catholic faith: that today, Jesus Christ continues alive and truly present in the consecrated host and the chalice."

"Paying less attention at times to the rite of the Most Holy Sacrament constitutes," he said, "a sign and a cause of the darkening of the Christian sense of mystery, such as when Jesus is not the centre of the Mass, but rather a community preoccupied with other things instead of being taken up and drawn to the only one necessary: their Lord."

Benedict XVI emphasized that "if the figure of Christ does not emerge from the liturgy ... it is not a Christian liturgy". This is why, he added, "we find those who, in the name of enculturation, fall into syncretism, introducing rites taken from other religions or cultural particularities into the celebration of the Mass."

As Venerable John Paul II wrote, "the mystery of the Eucharist is 'too great a gift' to admit of ambiguities or reductions, above all when, 'stripped of its sacrificial meaning, it is celebrated as if it were simply a fraternal banquet'."

The Pope highlighted that "behind many alleged motives, there exists a mentality that is incapable of accepting the real possibility of divine intervention in this world to assist human beings. ... Admitting God's redeeming intervention to change our situation of alienation and sin is seen as fundamentalism by those who share a deist vision and the same can be said about the sacramental sign that makes the salvific sacrifice present. For such persons, the celebration of a sign that corresponds to a vague sentiment of community would be more acceptable."

"Worship, however," he continued, "cannot come from our imagination: that would be a cry in the darkness or mere self-affirmation. True liturgy supposes that God responds and shows us how we can adore Him. ... The Church lives in His presence and its reason for being and existing is to expand His presence in the world."

The Holy Father concluded, recalling that within a month the 16th National Eucharistic Congress will be celebrated in Brazil. In this context he asked that Jesus in the Eucharist "truly be the heart of Brazil, from which comes the strength for all Brazilian men and women to recognize themselves and help one another as brothers and sisters and as members of Christ. Whoever wishes to live, has a place to live, has something to live for. Let them draw near, create and begin to form part of the Body of Christ and they will be given life."
