Bishop Slattery Takes Place of Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos at D.C. Pontifical Latin Mass

April 22, 2010

Bishop Slattery, like Pope Benedict XVI, is hailed by neotraditionalists as a champion of tradition because he says the Novus Ordo Mass ad orientem. Can they be unaware of Bishop Slattery’s Judaizing liturgical alchemy? Or is it that they don’t care?

“There’s nothing in Catholic teaching or law that would prevent a group from having a seder meal to teach the faithful the origins of our own Mass, which comes from the seder.” (Bishop Edward J. Slattery)

In fact, the Haggadah, the liturgy used at seders, began to be formulated in the Talmudic Era, centuries after Christ’s Last Supper. The Haggadah as it exists today–as it is now celebrated in Catholic parishes around the world–dates only to the 13th century A.D. The traditional Mass does not “come from the seder,” although it is accurate to say that parts of the Novus Ordo Mass of 1969 do. I doubt that Bishop Slattery wants this distinction to be known. As we have seen from other modern prelates of high position, including the Pope, they want Catholics to believe that rabbinic tradition is an authentic continuation of the religion of the faithful Israelites of the Bible and for Catholics to involve themselves in these traditions. There could be no worse deception than this, as Pope Innocent IV observed, through the rabbis’ traditions, they render souls utterly alien from the law and the prophets, a fact which was later documented so thoroughly by Johannes Eisenmenger in his masterwork, Entdecktes Judenthum that no defense, other than censorship and ad hominem, has even been attempted against it.

For this rabbi enabler to be offering a traditional Latin Mass in the place of the sex predator enabler, Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, is no less a scandal. Protect your children, body and soul, from these treacherous men.

Ecclesia Dei Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos Lauded Sheilding of Admitted Sex Predator from Justice

April 16, 2010

Cardinal Hoyos is a rabbi in cardinal’s clothing. Why do I say this? Because he attempts to hang his talmudic casuistry from St. Paul, according to which it’s virtuous for a bishop to shield an admitted sex predator priest from the punishment he deserves. The real basis for his pharisaic anti-morality is the Talmud of Babylon:

Israel is not to be accused of pederasty. (Babylonian Talmud, Kiddushin 82a)

Would you care to join the neotraditionalists in assisting at a Latin Mass offered by this villain in Washington D.C. next week? I’m certain that the vestments and rubrics will be flawless. And while there’s no guarantee that your children will be safe there, you can be fully assured that the liturgy and sermon will be free of any offenses to the tender sensibilities of “our brothers, the sons of Abraham.”

Cardinal hailed bishop for hiding predator priest: report

(Reuters) – A Vatican cardinal in charge of clergy around the world congratulated a French bishop in a 2001 letter for not denouncing a sexually abusive priest to the police, according to a French website on Thursday.

The letter posted by Golias, a critical lay Roman Catholic magazine based in Lyon, is the most explicit of a wave of recently published internal church documents in showing past Vatican encouragement to cover up sexual abuse by priests.

In the letter dated Sept 8, 2001, Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos backed French Bishop Pierre Pican’s decision not to denounce a priest who was later sentenced to 18 years in jail for repeated rape of a boy and sexual assaults on 10 others.

Under fire in recent weeks for its secretive handling of abuse cases, the Vatican has insisted the fact that other published documents did not explicitly instruct bishops to inform police of abuse did not prove it told them to hide it.

Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi did not dispute the letter’s content but said it confirmed “how opportune it was to centralize treatment of cases of sexual abuse of minors by clerics under the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.”

The then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict, instructed Catholic bishops around the world on May 18, 2001 to report all case of clerical sexual abuse of minors to the Congregation, the top Vatican doctrinal office that he headed.

Pican, who received a suspended three-month jail sentence for not denouncing sexual abuse of minors, admitted in court he had kept Rev. Rene Bissey in parish work despite the fact the priest had privately admitted committing pedophile acts.

The case shocked France and prompted its bishops to declare that all abuse cases must be reported to civil authorities.

“I congratulate you for not denouncing a priest to the civil administration,” Castrillon Hoyos said. “You have acted well and I am pleased to have a colleague in the episcopate who, in the eyes of history and of all other bishops in the world, preferred prison to denouncing his son and priest.”


In it, the cardinal said relations between bishops and priests were not simply professional but had “very special links of spiritual paternity.” Bishops therefore had no obligation to testify against “a direct relative,” he stated.

The letter cited Vatican documents and an epistle of Saint Paul to bolster its argument about special bishop-priest links.

“To encourage brothers in the episcopate in this delicate domain, this Congregation will send copies of this letter to all bishops’ conferences,” Castrillon Hoyos wrote.

A staunch conservative from Colombia, the cardinal headed the Vatican department for priests from 1996 to 2006. From 2000 to 2009, he also ran a commission dealing with traditionalist rebels who broke from Rome in 1988 and were excommunicated.

He conducted the talks that led to the January 2009 decision to readmit the four banned bishops of the Society of Saint Pius X to the Church, which caused an uproar when it emerged that one of them, Richard Williamson, had denied the Holocaust.

The controversy was highly embarrassing to Pope Benedict, who said he did not know about Williamson’s views, even though they could easily be found on the internet.

Two months after the incident, Benedict folded Castrillon Hoyos’s commission into the Congregation and the cardinal retired.

On Thursday the pope said the church had to do penance for its sins, in a rare public reference to the pedophilia scandal.
