  Is this true?
Questions! Questions! Questions I always have questions. My mind is always hurrying and scurrying, in a state of wondering what does it all mean. What was said and how does it fit in with what I was taught? I ask what causes so much confusion in the Church today? How does it fit in with the life I try to and must live? A life that must be obedient to and found in Christ's teaching. The question is, should I ask these questions of anyone other than myself? Am I questioning God? Is it sacrilegious to ask a Bishop or to say, “Look one Bishop makes one claim, another of you claims something different has more importance, then another of you says this problem is even more pressing, now please what are we to believe and do?”. Very few mention how the blasphemies and sacrileges heaped upon the Body and blood should be stopped. I believe many do but they have some cockamamie view of unity that forms their final opinions. Which is right action for the Laity to take? I have been to Eucharistic Conferences and the latter day saintly ones are useless. They smack, as do the charismatic passion plays of emotions of mass hysteria. The organizers of both happenings find members of the Laity who witness to how wonderful they are and the life they live. These people seem to be more social than spiritual. On the 'net there is a you-tube of a Eucharistic Procession in Dublin before WW1I, what a magnificent display of belief and faith. I have not read or heard any of these witnesses, of these times, once say how they prepare to receive Him who died for our salvation. I always have the feeling it is a joyful occasion and we all go home and go back to our normal way of life, bubbling with laughter but not the Holy Ghost the Divine Eternal Spirit of The Holy Trinity.

I ask should I do what a former Parish Priest told me, “Go back to what you were. Sit in the pews and keep quiet?” If you agree write and tell me, those who receive this link. Do any of you have an answer for me? Can of you straighten out my or the Laity's confusion, without spouting platitudes? Can you straighten out my ways or level the hills? Is there any Bishop who truly understands and sees the dogma or doctrine in the revelation of God command to Moses “Tell them, I am Who am” or what Christ said in the garden, “I am He”. Do any of you, Bishops, Priests and self processed just Catholics hold dear to their hearts these phrases and their meaning? What changes, if any, can any one of the Hierarchy make? Anyone of us for that matter, unless we have Righteousness Himself with us. Can Hierarchs, as many have, by their works claimed to be collegiate or otherwise make the changes they have? I question as I read many of their statements, do they truly understand what the power of the keys mean or meant to the Jewish Apostles of that time? Can they just, as they see fit, alter God’s explicit instructions, directives, ordinances or commands found in Holy Scriptures? At this moment it would be correct to ask what are commandments? Has the Church ever defined, that is without, ambiguity, how to recognize a commandment? Does the hierarchy really believe, how the instructions by God to Moses should weigh heavily upon their consciences, I mean His, “I am Who am”. It seems the new and Third Great commandment of the New Testament written on some kind of stony material in the modern hierarchical heart is, “I am in command obey me and my successors to eternity. It is OK now, I am in charge I do not need the Paraclete to remind me or the Comforter to comfort me, especially in my diocese and I certainly do not need the Holy Ghost, the Divine Spirit of Supernatural Love and Sanctifying Grace, to help me and I wish He would stop. He is only confusing the Laity. Can I make this claim through personal observation that this is the type of thought process the Bishops and therefore their Priests use daily? I thoroughly understand they must make the final decision on things spiritual and many of them have forgotten, especially the Hierarchy, it is a priestly necessity, for the sake of their soul, to prepare us for heaven. Again by observation, I wonder if they have the Holy Spirit in them or is He only with them?

The recently appointed Prefect for the Defense of the Sacraments and the Faith, the Holy Inquisition of old, said last week, “Anyone who does not believe in Vatican 2 is a heretic”. As a bishop I knew, as a Parish Priest often said and I echo him, “Good Golly” and so I wonder how can that be since I can honestly ask in absolute truth, which Vatican 2 or which Spirit is the righteous one? So who can say who is the heretic if one cannot be precise about the true spirit of Vatican 2? Did not a Bishop Athanasius Schneider ask for a proper clarification of Vatican 2 last year. What was Vatican 2? Was it an Ecumenical Council or was it a Pastoral Council? Three Popes, all present at the Council, as advisers on theology for various bishops, have strongly made it clear, by words and letters, we must look it as a pastoral council. This means no dogma or doctrine could be changed, a statement qualified by the last four Popes. As Ecumenical is it part of the Magisterium and as such must be believed. If the Book of Wisdom, Chapter One, is to be believed, then the spirit of Wisdom, the spirit of discipline may have watched but not acted, since the opinions expressed after is more reminiscent of the Tower of Babel than a pillar of Unity. For example, with the Spirit of confusion that has entered into the Church from the Council deliberations, I have noted that parish priests give one answer to the Liberals and one to the papal Catholics who are orthodox in their beliefs. My best example of this is twofold. The Eucharist and the words of canon law on who can receive this wonderful gift and a Parish Priest who when faced with blasphemies against the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, under his nose. In the priest's parish there were hosts stuffed in hymnbooks, even on the floor. We watched an under age child taking one from the leader in the Parish of the charismatic, who are so careless in the practice of our religion took it back it to his mother who folded it into a Kleenex and put it into her purse. Such a hot denial shouted loudly by the priest, when faced with this fact We were liars no one could do this. He followed up with a childish letter in his parish bulletin, which I have kept. Another priest told me of a child who also took the Host back to his mother in another parish. The mother explained, when questioned by the priest, their dog was sick and it was for their pet. Do you want to hear of extra to the ordinary Eucharistic Ministers. I watched as two EXTRA-TO THE ORDINARY MINISTER do something really extraordinary. On separate occasions in the same parish they each picked up something from inside the Eucharistic Chalice and flicked both specs of dirt onto the altar floor.

Of course I must also remind on the opening of the new Ikea some years ago. Many of the The overnight lineup were interviewed, one volunteered the information he was catholic and he was there not going to Church that Sunday. He was asked and it was in print that it did not matter , his sister had gone to mass and brought him the Host. I wonder if this happens still on occasion. Can you tell me it does not?

Of course once again I recommend you, take this to your parish priest and ask him if this could be lies? Make him give you an answer or ask why he cannot. Somehow I feel you will find it easier to condemn my views than take it to anyone even send a link to your brother and sister. Is it any real surprise our children leave the Church? Why would they stay when they see us so easily dismiss what we learn't from our fathers and mothers.
