With hundreds of Catholics faxing, calling and writing to the Nuncio and the Vatican about the abandonment of the Archbishop from his See, the seven years of dismantling the Catholic Church here in Boston and how in his abandonment, wealthy dissidents have taken over the Chancery and there is fracturing and chaos, we really don't know what to make of the news that the Pope has assigned Cardinal O'Malley to Ireland to "intervene" in a diocese devastated by sexual abuse allegations.
Is this the golden parachute and a Coadjutor will be assigned?
Or, when the Vatican received concerns of several hundred Catholics indicating the Cardinal has shifted power to Jack Connors, other wealthy dissident donors and the Kennedy School of Government,they brainstormed and came up with an idea to give him another job in another diocese, on top of the one he as, in a land far, far away that is a bigger mess than Boston?
Gee, I hope not, because the only thing more absurd would be to read they're rushing the Legionnaires of Christ over to Ireland to help the Church in Ireland out of the mess.
Here's a good laugh for readers who are privy to what's going on here in Boston:
“It really confirms Sean O’Malley’s profile as being the Mr. Fix-It of the Catholic church when it comes to the sexual abuse crisis,’’ said John L. Allen Jr., who covers the Vatican for the National Catholic Reporter.
Is this nuts or what?
