THE TENTH CRUSADE
Outrageous simply outrageous!
Jack Connors, one of the founders of the elitist, New England branch of a catholic lite "church". Adherents of this rundown version of pick and choose "catholicism" include stalwarts like "beatified" Peter Meade.This version of American "catholicism"/"christianity" was devastatingly described by Flannery O'Connor:"She was a good Christian woman with a large respect for religion, though she did not, of course, believe any of it was true."-- Flannery O'Connor: Greenleaf, in Everything That Rises Must Converge, published posthumously in 1965, "I'm going to preach there was no Fall because there was nothing to fall from, and no Redemption because there was no Fall, and no Judgment because there wasn't the first two. Nothing matters but that Jesus was a liar.-- Flannery O'Connor, Wise Blood (1952),
A Bhreathnaigh a chara, (Dear Mr. Walsh)Thanks for a great comment referencing Flannery O'Connor. It brings to mind that the Arse-diocese of Boston under Cardinal Jack Connors is the epitome of the "Church Without Christ." It only remains to be figured out how Wise Blood, as roman à clé prefigures the grotesques that inhabit #666 Brooks Drive.That will probably be the subject of another of Carol's posts. These heretics have to be expelled. All of them. As a minor Massachusetts schismatic Greek solon once observed, ᾿ιχθὺς ἐκ τῆς κεφαλῆς ὄζειν ἄρχεται. He didn't say it in classical Greek like that but rather in his Brookline patois, τό ψάρι μυρίζει από τό κεφάλι. It's the well-known adagium about the malodorous origin of a rotting fish.It's the head, Pat O'Malley. The head. The head, in case you have been misapprised in your pursuit of your careerist course as a company man in the Church without Christ. The stinking fish is entirely the blame of O'Malley. Let us remember that that fish was an early symbol of Christianity. ΙΧΘΥΣ. The word means "fish" in Greek -- and it is an acronym for Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour. The blame for its stench in this local church is to be laid at the feet of O'Malley. There is a legend that the popes used to be checked for their masculinity and the cardinal charged with the testicular verification would proclaim testiculos habet et bene pendentes. Should not a cardinal have balls before donning the watered silk? Come on, Pat, step up to the plate. Be a man. The watered silk is red. Red incarnadine. Yellow is not a liturgical color.
