Has anybody seen the current issue of the new downsized Wanderer this week? It has an article on the impending retirement of the dissident Bishop of Rochester, New York (Fulton Sheen ran this diocese from 1966-1969) He took over in 1979 and after 33 years at the helm he turns the mandatory retirement age of 75 in July. Bishop Matthew Clark has invited every dissident available over the years and has put radical nuns and their equally radical laity to run parishes. He ruined St. Bernard's Seminary in Rochester which was built during the reign of Pius IX specifically to weed out modernists, today it is run by modernist's. Bishop Clark's close friend Bishop Howard Hubbard 73 has run the Albany, New York diocese for the last 35 years(since 1977) Why Holy Mother Church allowed these two to reign and destroy Catholicism for such a long time is beyond belief. At least time takes it's toll and these 2 will be aged out. Of course Rochester and Albany will have become missionary outposts since nothing of true Catholicism remains.
Rochester has got to be one of the most tragic disasters of the American church.
What a hard job the next bishop has. 

C.
Put one of the SSPX Bishops in Rochester, what do they have to lose , only modernism is there.
This is one thing I do not understand: High ranking clergymen like Matthew Clark have been chided for decades. It used to be Mahony, Gumbleton, Weakland, Bernardin, or Quinn. Yet, who has appointed, promoted, and maintained these men all these years?

Matthew Clark was appointed to head Rochester over thirty years ago, and underwent episcopal ordination with the now supposedly blessed and beatified JPII himself serving as principal consecrator. So, for over twenty years, this man had the implicit or tacit approval of JPII, and still has this same approval, for the last seven years of Benedict XVI.
If Bishop Fellay is reading this maybe he should ask the Pope the next time they meet why Bishop Williamson in particular and the SSPX in general has to agree to certain "principles" while Bishop Matthew Clark of Rochester and Bishop Howard Hubbard of Albany are allowed to disregard church teaching, appoint heretics to positions in their diocese and they are in "union" with him. Hmmm!!! :O :O :O
Here is a picture of in full communion, fully-regularized, no need for an agreement or preamble, appointed and consecrated by Blessed John Paul II himself, and maintained and supported implicitly by JPII and BXVI since 1979, the Bishop of Rochester, the man who supposedly has the power and represents Christ in that diocese, Matthew Clark

Like St. John Chrysostom said, "The floor of hell is lined with the skulls of rotten bishops".
Welcome to authentic Catholicism, where an active homosexual can be an Archbishop for 25 years under the Conciliar Popes (appointed by Pope Paul VI and maintained in the Milwaukee Archdiocese for 25 years until his mandatory retirement age hits) and do whatever the hell he wants, even including the wreckovation of the historic cathedral against some useless Vatican curial office's wishes.

Makes you wonder why it's worth anything to be "in communion with the Pope," doesn't it?

It's mind-blowing, but don't think too far down that road.

Oh, I understand, but I fail to reconcile how a sin that cries out for vengeance to God (sodomy) can be practiced by the archbishop of a major American city, yet some retired bishop wants to do things the way he's always done it and receives the full force of the Vatican hit squad.

It makes modern Catholicism is a freaking joke, doesn't it?
