“He goes into Dublin with a lot of credibility and a good track record,” Groome said. “He won’t tolerate a cover-up. He’ll have a pastoral outreach to the victims. He will see to it that the Dublin church is doing things above board. In fairness, that’s been his record in Boston. If the church is going to send in apostolic visitors, I don’t think they could have picked a better person than Cardinal Sean O’Malley.”
You see this is what is so troubling to Boston Catholics who are in the know about what is truly going on. From the ground, we saw the Cardinal cover up a business to kill the children of the poor, why on earth would anyone believe he'd act any different when papers hit his desk about raping children?
We have had seven years of dishonesty.
After several years of sending paper trails to the Nuncio and Vatican about the propensity of the Cardinal to cover up corruption, the Vatican selects him to "fix" Ireland?
It's actually kind of creepy.
The temptation is there to draw the conclusion that their public statements about wanting to clean up corruption are insincere.
I find myself in agreement with Terry McKeirnan:
“The fact is, O’Malley, everywhere he has gone, has been a fixer,” he said. “He’s taken a bad situation for the Catholic Church, glossed it over and he’s a been a silencer, really, rather than a healer.”
He's thrown money at everyone to shut them up and make them go away. Meanwhile, back at the Chancery, he's dismantled everything that is Catholic and handed over the Chancery and the Deposit of Faith to the wealthy apostates. He has bullied and threatened orthodox priests into silence to the point where they have to fly under the radar.
Even taking out the facts that the Vatican is completely aware of the Cardinal's ineptitude, the chaos and dishonesty, how to they figure he can run the most corrupt archdiocese in America and simultaneously clean up the most corrupt diocese in the world?O’Malley’s work in Ireland begins this fall and is expected to take about a year to complete. The Boston Archdiocese says Cardinal O’Malley’s responsibilities here will not change.
At best, it is a joke.
