What Rorate Caeli does not mention [in its blog posting titled, “The Church that led the Vatican II ‘Rhine reforms’ was rotten,”] are two facts that have been reported on Friday, December 16, 2011, at the frontpage of the the Dutch ‘quality newspaper’ NRC Handelsblad (with Lux et Libertas in it’s logo) and that you will find, with video presentations in Dutch, on
‘De onderzoekscommissie deed nauwgezet onderzoek en concludeert dat Simonis als bisschop van Rotterdam en later als aartsbisschop van Utrecht niet altijd zorgvuldig handelde. Zo drukte hij de wijding door van priesters ‘die ongeschikt bleken en zich aan misbruik overgaven’. Ook bezorgde hij ontspoorde en soms veroordeelde priesters nieuwe aanstellingen. Dat deed ook de opvolger van Simonis in Rotterdam, monseigneur Bär, die volgens de commissie ‘opmerkelijk veel’ homoseksuele jongemannen tot priesters wijdde.”
“The investigation committee… concludes that Simonis as bishop of Rotterdam and later as archbishop of Utrecht did not always act carefully. For instance, he exercised pressure so that priests were ordained ‘who turned out to be unfit and indulged in abuses.’ This was also done by Simonis’s sucessor in Rotterdam, Mgr. Bär, who, according to the committee, ‘ordained remarkably many gay boys.'”
This looks like a concerted action of the type mentioned by Randy Engels in The Rite of Sodomy. If this be true, it might show that the ties between the Sons of Darkness and the Dutch RC Church are tight and long existing. Many of the sex scandals date from the time before Vatican II, so they cannot be all attributed to the false Conciliar Church.
But it might be possible that seed has been sown by the enemy before Vatican II to make sure that the people would one day hate the Church with more hate than ever. Anyway, a Catholic who loves his Saviour and looks forward to Heaven in my opinion should not have problems with the 6th and 9th commandments, or any of the others.
Simonis is spending his old age a few miles from where I live, in the former Mariencroon Cistercian Monastery (http://focolare.netone.nl/marienkroon.nl/paters/). It was a very fruitful monastery, the biggest of the Cistercians, until, some 40 years ago, a new abbot was installed, who disliked dogma and made most Fathers leave. This abbot has handed a nearly empty monastery to the false oecumenistic Focolare movement, that has turned the monastery into a Mariapoli. It is in this milieu that Simonis feels most at ease, presumably.
Mgr. Bär started as a monk of the Chevetogne monastery, (http://www.monasterechevetogne.com/index.php?taalkeuze=3), a breeding place of false oecumenism in the hands of Dom Beaudoin, friend of Roncalli’s: “At the news of the death of Pius XII, the old Dom Lambert Beauduin, a friend of Roncalli’s (the future John XXIII) confided to Father Bouyer: “If they elect Roncalli, everything would be saved; he would be capable of calling a council and of consecrating ecumenism.” (http://www.tldm.org/news6/VaticanII-2.htm)
In 1993 Mgr. Bär and the pseudo-conservative Limburg Mgr. Gijssen stepped down after rumours of scandals involving the two (separately), the first thought to have a gay lover, the second thought to have watched his seminarians in quite personal circumstances.
I hate to stir all this mud but it is important to know what kind of people we are dealing with.
God help us – and them.
