Benedictine Monastery Hosts "Drag Show"


Edit:  we've heard of Benedictine hospitality, but is that extended to the Devil? Given the atmosphere of decadence, malignancy and outright evil, isn't it just possible that Collegeville wouldn't be this open about its depravity? This monastery and school were caught before for attempting to host a naked retreat. The naked retreat was cancelled.

Now a student organization funded by the school is promoting a "drag show". From the school funded website:

By Meredith Jarchow – mgjarchow@csbsju.eduTalented performers, dramatic makeup and high heels will ensure that this Friday isn’t a drag. 
For several years CSB/SJU People Representing the Sexual Minority (PRiSM) has hosted an annual drag show at CSB/SJU. This year’s show will take place on Friday, with the theme “Life is a Drag” which will include student performers as well as professionals. 
This year, the drag show was preceded by a few different events including a drag makeup tutorial and Ally training with the Institute of Women’s Leadership to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ women for Women’s History Month. 
“During this month, oftentimes [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning] (LGBTQ+) women are forgotten or aren’t part of the conversation,”

PRiSM co-president Anna Peichel said via email. “We wanted to just provide information about how to be allies and create safe spaces for LGBTQ+ women and LGBTQ+ folks in general.” 
The PRiSM drag show provides students with an opportunity to try drag in their own style and perform for an audience. 
“Doing drag is really dependent on the person, one person might create a long routine and another might want more crowd interaction,” Peichel said. “We really let the students do whatever they are most comfortable with.”
For CSB senior Paige Maki, this year will be her second performance in the PRiSM drag show. 
“I enjoy truly becoming my persona as Danny Deeper, and being able to dance in a ridiculous fashion but not feel any shame or embarrassment for it,” Maki said via email. “I also love the audience that comes because they are all so encouraging and don’t care if you mess up or aren’t the best performer.” 
In addition to the performances, the drag show will also provide the audience with a 21+ area that includes a cash bar. PRiSM hopes to create a welcoming atmosphere for all audience members, according to Peichel. 
“Drag queens and kings are amazing and great at their jobs, they shouldn’t make you feel uncomfortable in any way,” Peichel said. “They are usually very funny and put on very humorous performances. Be ready to laugh, cheer and have dollar bills ready for your favorite performers.” 
While this is not an experience many students on campus may have ever had, Maki and Peichel hope that those who have never attended a drag show to learn more about it this Friday. 
Maki says this event is important to the CSB/SJU community “to become more open minded, meet us, see that we are here and we aren’t that different from anyone else,” Maki said. “This event raises awareness about a community that not many people know about, and it shows that anyone can do anything they put their mind to.”
The biggest misconception about drag shows? The makeup, according to Maki.
“The makeup isn’t as easy as many would think for both drag queens and drag kings,” Maki said. 
There is no cost to attend the drag show, which will begin at 8 p.m. on Friday in Gorecki 204.

Collegeville Benedictines Dox Their Victims

Edit: they don't have much respect for persons. Saint John's Abbey is a Benedictine religious community in central Minnesota which has gradually, over a period of a century, sold its Catholic identity for some really ugly Bauhais architecture, ugly liturgical music and abuses, plus flagrant heresy, including Marxism.  Now they are attacking people who've been wronged by them, by publishing court records and private information in what seems to be a tactic of intimidation.
We've been covering this dump for about 5 years in this blog. It's an evil place.
 - It’s called the “Minnesota Transparency Initiative.” This month, in the interest of transparency, Saint John’s Abbey released thousands of pages of documents tied to monks “credibly accused of sexual abuse of minors” decades ago. However, some of the victims tell Fox 9 the release went too far — exposing private information about survivors.
Names of survivors were not released, and were redacted. However, one survivor, Louise (last name withheld), pointed Fox 9 to information she believes is personal and identifying that was posted online. Another survivor pointed to a deposition posted online. 
In Louise’s case, documents included copies of e-mails sent from a psychologist to the head of the Abbey detailing information about Louise’s family, medication, and health diagnoses.

Collegeville: Courageous Women Confront Alleged Canon Law Professor at Conference Promoting New Mercy

Edit: there was a dramatic confrontation at the aforementioned canon law presentation by  Father Dan Ward OSB, shilling for the New Mercy of Pope Francis,  this past Sunday.  They're trying to catch a boost from the Bergoglio Effect.   Two of Ward's alleged victims confronted him during the question and answer section.  
One of the especially interesting features of this confrontation was that the name of Josh Guimond, who's been reported missing from St. John's since November 10, 2002, was mentioned by one of the first of Dan Ward's alleged victims. Josh Guimond had been studying  abuse at Collegeville prior to disappearing, and was a captain of Dan Ward's Mock Trial team. 
St. John's Abbey has long been source of heresy and liturgical abuse since even the 20s when Liturgical Reformer, Father Virgil Michel OSB, was celebrating illicit Masses to as part of  the so-called Liturgical Movement, among whose stated aims was active participation in the liturgy, social justice and inclusion into the Mystical Body of Christ.  Virgil's activist, deforming and dissident work was carried on by Vatican II Peritus, Father Godfrey Dieckman OSB and his successors at Orate Fratres, now Worship Magazine, like the credibly accused predator and heretical Father Dunstan Moorse OSB who is now its editor.
Many still unfortunately do not see a connection between the credible pederastic and criminal sexual conduct of these individuals and their heretical beliefs, but we'd submit to you that as in cases like this outside of the Catholic Church, (Which aren't regarded with the same venom and moral outrage in the media, see Roman Polanksi and David Bowie, for example, in the entertainment media, psychology, education and so on) there is a powerful link between beliefs and the abuse of power.
What are Bishop Barron's beliefs?


We've copied and pasted the entire article for clarity, and for preservation purposes, which includes the transcript of the question and answer session:

[Behind the Pine Curtain] On Sunday, January 24, 2016, Father Dan Ward gave a presentation (via Skype) to an audience of 50-75 people on the campus of Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota.
One of Father Ward’s alleged victims attended. Father Ward admitted to the audience that he met with the alleged victim in the vice-president’s office [at the College St. Benedict] years ago, but he didn’t want to have a discussion about something that “was settled.”
Note: In October of 2012, Saint John’s Abbey confirmed that Father Dan Ward was under investigation for sexual misconduct. The public has yet to learn the results of that investigation, though Father Ward resigned from as Executive Director of the RCRI in May of 2013. Father Ward taught at St. John’s Prep School and St. John’s University.

The New Mercy as Interpreted by a Sexual Predator?



[Collegeville] what happens when a canon lawyer with all of the appropriate degrees is also a credibly accused sexual predator?  Saint John's Abbey houses what just might be the  largest concentration of free ranging sexual predators in the world. It was once the largest monastery in the world, but its numbers have dwindled considerably, and when encountering the monks, clear and distinct ideas develop as to why.

Father Dan Ward is going to attack the sacrament of marriage using his credentials in the appearances of legitimate ministry.

Ward has been credibly accused by former college students on four occasions of sexual exploitation. One by a young monk, and one student who came to St. John's Abbey for a visit after high school.

Now he's going to help stage manage the New Mercy in the annulment process, away from objectivity to the murk of sentiment.

Some Bishops have been dismissed and hounded out of their positions for far, far less. How about some mercy for the Church and take a long exile in the desert or leave the ministry entirely?

The Destruction of the Church in the United States Long Prepared at Benedictine Monastery

Saint John's Abbey, Heresy in Stone
Edit: the Remnant is a newspaper produced fortnightly which has, "For nearly fifty years we have been fighting in defence of the traditions of the Catholic Church and the proclamation of the Kingship of Christ. In print or online, The Remnant calls a spade a spade no matter who is using it to bury God."  Despite being so long in the trenches, they only seem to have first come across nearby St. John's Abbey as the source of trouble just this year. They seemed horrified by the recent national news item which recounted one of the many sexual predators of Collegeville who claimed to have had 200 sexual partners, but still managed to wax nostalgic about the Matt family visits with one of the founders of the so-called "Liturgical Renewal," Father Virgil Michel, and asked incredibly, "what happened?"

Alas, the Remnant doesn't see the connection between the hideous architecture of the campus, the evil of her monks,  Michel, Vatican II and the aftermath.  It's not a controversial statement to say that Father Virgil Michel was one of the forerunners of Vatican II.

We could go so far as to say that he even laid out the praxis in so far as he put his erroneous liturgical notions ad experimentum, using the local laity of Sterns County and the environs as guinea pigs.

Eponymous Flower doesn't normally link to Diocesan newspapers, particularly ones of poor quality like the Catholic Spirit, but the following article really does accurately describe many of the actors which prepared the Archdiocese and indeed, the United States, for Vatican II.   Some of the actors in the article are more guilty than others, some have misgivings, others ascribe to Vatican II things it did not call for or address, but they were all in one way or another, advocates, whether they lived to see the results or not, of a disastrous situation for the Church and the world.

Benedictine Abbey Lying About Prior's Accusation -- Media Gives "Helping" Hand

Edit: St. John's Abbey is at it again, attempting to  throw up a diversion by getting a press release about an accusation that "happened 30 years ago," while ignoring a much more credible, damaging one against the same perpetrator.  The resignation, pending a further investigation of Father Thomas Andert, has been unsatisfactorily  covered in the various Minnesota media organs [here, here, SC Times which is usually favorable to Collegeville. NPR goes to some lengths to point out that the accusation is not detailed.  [How helpful.]. None of these news items mentions another accusation leveled against this monk, even going to the point of lying about it.  As Aelred Senna, the Abbey's spokesman is quoted as saying:

The abbey said they have no other incidents or allegations filed against him.1

 What about the other, very credible accusation which the Abbey, and coincidentally the press, is ignoring?  We'd made mention earlier that Andert had preyed upon a young man who recently committed suicide.  There's also evidence of Andert's grooming his alleged victim with his  odd love letters.  There is no mention of this by any of the news media.

It is possible that after they determine that the accusation isn't credible, they'll reinstate Andert as Prior.


We also gotta ask... Where are the dissident leftists like Father Michael Tegeder, who were so vocal when Archbishop Nienstedt was being attacked relentlessly by the national and local news media?  The national news media doesn't seem to care on this count.  They weren't very helpful during the Marriage Amendment, either.

Josh Guimond is still missing and St. John's Abbey is still an organ of error and deceitfulness.

Modernist Monk in Collegeville Charged With Crime

Edit: this one will fall into the "Psychologically Well-Adjusted Modern Clergy" category.

It's the first time we know of that a monk from the evil monastery at Collegeville has been charged with a crime.
As usual, the way these stories go, the aberrosexual activism, Modernism and heresy of Collegeville are ignored, but Catholicism is blamed for these well-adjusted clergy.

[Saint Cloud Times] An investigator from the Hastings Police Department served a search warrant last week at St. John's Abbey in connection with the prosecution of former abbey monk Fran Hoefgen.


The investigator was seeking abbey personnel records on Hoefgen, who is accused of abusing an altar boy between 1989 and 1992 when Hoefgen was a priest at a Hastings church.
Hoefgen, 64, is scheduled to stand trial beginning Monday in Dakota County.

Victim of Modernist Abbey's Prior Died by Own Hand

Edit: there's so much that's wrong with this place, it's sometimes hard to know where to begin, and it's difficult to understand why nothing has been done. In most other parts of the world and walks of life, if there were  individuals devoted to a profession, a vocation, no matter how hallowed their institution was, who did not act according to the standards of their profession, its best practices and guidelines, hopefully, society would respond by correcting violations  of the rules by disciplinary, and even criminal proceedings.  But imagine if  a doctor violated ethical rules surrounding his practice and even broke laws? What if that doctor willfully murdered his patients and society did nothing to stop him?  That would indeed be a very corrupt and degraded society.

St. John's Abbey in Collegeville is a place where the spirit of the rules adumbrated by the Rule of the founder of the order of St. Benedict are routinely ignored,  but they're not content to ignore the rules, they vitiate them as well.  As for the dogmas of the Catholic Faith, these are routinely held in scorn by the monks through their public witness and their impudence and disobedience.  It's doubtful that the Masses said there are licit, they have often been blasphemous.

In contrast to the obedient and chaste Franciscans of the Immaculate, who have been going through their own Golgotha, and are charged with no known infractions of their own charters and rules, or any ethical violations, (Indeed, it's their Commissar, Father Fidenzio Volpe, who has broken Italian law by slandering the Manelli family.)   St. John's Abbey has a sickening catalog of sins, heresies, abuses and criminal acts of the most wicked kind.

Yet despite the public nature of the scandal surrounding St. John's Abbey, there is no visitor being sent, no coadjutor appointed.  St. John's Abbey is "in good standing".

We heard about this in mid-February, and have just now gotten around to putting it here.   A young man who attended the high school run by these "Benedictines" has killed himself, and the man who abused him is the Prior of the Abbey.  (The accusation was very solid by the way, since the Predator Prior wrote love letters to his victim.) What that poor young man described as a "culture of hypocrisy" thrives on in its festering malignancy, as reported on January 23rd of this year by the Pine Curtain. (The man's untimely death was announced in a warning to Kettler residents whose children were to be attending an event at St. John's Abbey.)

Despite all the time that's past, we haven't heard much about this, nothing has happened.

Father Tom Andert is not only a priest in good standing, but he's the Prior of St. John's Abbey.  It's arguably one of the least Catholic places in the world.

Josh Guimond is also still missing.

Followup On St. John's Abbey: Indifference at the Nunciature



Edit: as Cardinal Sean wrings his hands about Bishop Finn in Kansas City and demands an accounting, firing warning shots, there's a Monastery in the Midwest with hundreds of victims and probably the highest concentration of sexual predators in the world. One reader writes that he has contacted the Nuncio in Washington, has contacted the local ordinary, the Abbot, and the Bishop of St. Cloud (Himself a St. John's byproduct). Despite contacting them on two occasions, including letters, he has received no answer, no response to his letters, just silence and nothing changes.

But Cardinal Sean is rooting for women's ordination.

Here's my anonymous contributor's email message:

I have written the Vatican Embassy more than once, but never gotten a response.

Since you posted up the phone number, I called Washington today asking to speak to a staff member about the need to investigate the monks of St. John's Abbey. It seems impossible to get past the receptionist. She put me on hold for a long time, and when she came back she assured me my most recent e-mail of complaint had been received and was being reviewed, but that no staff member was available to visit with me. She also refused to put me on hold when I said I would wait to talk with someone about the history of the monks theological, liturgical, and sexual abuses, claiming that I had called an embassy, not a hotline; she told me I was free to call back, but the situation would remain the same.

Why does the phone number exist if all you can speak to is a deflecting receptionist? Why can't we call our Church leaders in Washington to express fears and indignation? Why won't they ever even write me back, or even acknowledge in writing they have received my correspondence?

Why does the same thing happen when I've written the last two bishops of the St. Cloud Diocese about the monks, the OSB nuns who preach daily at Mass, about the deteriorating Catholic ethos at the College of St. Benedict and St. John's University?

Benedictine Abbey in Minnesota: 2 Missing Persons and About 230 Victims, Evidence of Financial Misconduct and Luxurious Living -- No Apostolic Visitor

Edit: despite about 230 victims of sexual misconduct, not including predation upon vulnerable adults and college students, and two missing persons in the vicinity of St. John's Abbey in Collegeville, there have been absolutely no arrests and no convictions.   The Sheriff's department has been overtly hostile to  one of the victim's relatives, and no wonder, the Sheriff is a St. John's Abbey alumnus.

At approximately 11:00 pm and midnight on November 9, 2002, leaving Metten Court, a dormitory on the north end of St. John's University campus in Collegeville, Minnnesota, Josh Guimond disappeared.  His clothes, his wallet and car were all undisturbed.  He has been missing for 12 years this November.

Joshua Wetterling also disappeared on October 22nd, 1989 in close by St. Joseph.   Pine Curtain draws a connection between the Wetterlings and the a monk named Tom Gillespie.  The concerned monk consoled the Wetterlings when their son disappeared.

We're posting this to draw attention again to the evident corruption at one of the most famous Benedictine Monasteries in the world, if not the largest, and despite the ample evidence of serious corruption and negligence on the part of the monks, to say nothing of a singular indifference and hostility to the Catholic Faith which they claim to hold, there is not the slightest hint of an investigation, no calls for the resignation of the abbot, or the seizing of its assets by an Apostoilic Visitor.

Not even the local community has been moved to do anything about this resident evil.

Untouchable Hippie Priest In Deep With "Gay Subculture" Where Sexual Abuse Was Common



Edit: the following is part of an exchange where the heretical and disobedient pastor of St. Frances Cabrini church in Minneapolis insults his Archbishop and publishes their correspondence on his blog rather than address the liturgical abuses. Father Michael Tegeder has been reprimanded for having laymen give sermons before, invoking pagan gods or worshipping rocks, or lecturing the Archbishop on sexual abuse.

He'll probably keep his job.

We'll also recall that Tegeder hasn't held his alma mater, St. John's University and Abbey in Collegeville to the same standard  he holds Nienstedt.

When Tegeder was at St. John's, he was pretty familiar with the "gay subculture" there. Did he know about the sexual abuse that's been all too frequent there too? From the City Pages article:

He shares stories, stories beyond those bag boys, those fag-beaters. He talks about the gay subculture he saw when he was a student at St. John's, shared between teachers and students alike. [Many of whom were preying on their oftentimes minor students.] He mentions that one of those students had to move to New York to find some acceptance, only to be murdered in a Manhattan bar by another man looking to beat some fags. [Or maybe it was a drug deal gone bad?]


Did Tegeder cover for Deacon Joseph Damiani when the two worked together at St. Kateri's as presiders over a pagan "Indian" ceremony? Damiani is currently suspended by the Archdiocese, and the lawsuit he filed against his nephews and their countersuit were settled out of court.

Here's Tegeder's blog entry.  We're going to post it before it disappears. How does he get away with this?

September 21, 2014

DOING SOMETHING RIGHT Early in my ministry I had a wise pastor who said that if you do not occasionally get some flak you probably are not doing something right. I occasionally take some flak, not that this necessarily means I am doing something right, but sometimes, as Jesus said to the young man who responded from his heart, I may not be too far from the reign of God.

This came to mind with the following letter that I received from our local Ordinary:

Dear Father,

I am in receipt of a communication from a gentleman presently living in Texas, who was visiting his mother recently in Minneapolis and attended Mass at St. Francis [sic] Cabrini on the Feast of the Assumption with his son. He made the following observations:

1) The homily was provided by a lay person.

2) The content of the homily struck him as problematic. At one point the woman preacher said something to the effect that: "The centuries' old theological debates surrounding whether Mary was or was not assumed into heaven are not really important today."

3) The Eucharist was confected using leavened bread.

4) The sacred vessels used were stoneware.

He added, "Sadly these deviations were extremely distracting. Normally the moment before communion is a very peaceful time. However, I felt that my rights as a Catholic as well as those of my son, were being violated. Given my state of mind, I refrained from receiving Our Lord. I received a blessing from the presiding priest who gave the following blessing: "You are the Body of Christ." I'm not sure this is an appropriate blessing or what message it is meant to impart--especially as a blessing tied to the reception of the Eucharist."

As is my policy, I write to ask you to respond to these concerns that the writer raises, seemingly in good faith.

With every good wish, I remain…

Here is my response:

Dear Archbishop John

I was not the presiding priest nor was I present on the said occasion. However, I take full responsibility for it, something all church leaders should consider doing. By the way, your public condemnation of Father ______ ______'s "crimes" was a good example of not taking responsibility. Your violation of respect for due process owed Father _______ was stunning.

Regarding the actual communication I would have to say that things must be pretty good in Texas if this poor soul was "extremely distracted" by the things that he relates. I would have referred this troubled Texan to the wise advice of Pope Francis who calls the church to stop obsessing about "small minded rules."

But what is most amazing to me is that with the concerns in the Archdiocese these days you would take the time to relay such concerns from a complete stranger. What did Jesus say about the splinter in your brother's eye?

He and you seem so concerned about his so called rights as a Catholic being violated. I am more concerned about children being violated under your watch. You still owe us an explanation for your decisions involving Wehmeyer.

As it turns out, the Sunday after I received this letter, the gospel reading was about handling differences in the church. Jesus says first of all go to the person and work it out. He says nothing about first reporting back to the local ordinary. If the man wants to discuss his issues please give him my address.

I do have a concern over his state of mind as I do for yours. Indeed, I do not see how you can continue in your position. It cannot be good for you. Even Cardinal Burke has apparently seen the light and is moving on.

I will continue to pray for you.

shalom,

US Ambassador & Former University of St. John’s “Theology” Instructor Accused of Lewd Conduct

Edit: along with a few others, we bemoaned the US President’s appointment of a seething Marxist to be the Ambassador to the Vatican. This Cuban born son of “humble origins”  has taught at the theologically and morally debased Benedictine University of Collegeville, Minnesota which has a long gone unchallenged in its promotion of a culture that runs counter to Catholic teaching.

Diaz has been credibly accused of sexually harassing a husband and wife couple who teaches at  the University of Dayton where he, until recently, worked.  It’s certainly possible there were others who found Diaz’s behavior appalling.  At least the Jesuits are keeping him on their team at University of Chicago Loyola. [Loyola University Chicago]

A relativist in ethics will probably be a relativist in practice. Here’s from an article in the Star and Tribune, which addressed the issue of Diaz’s reticence to take a position on abortion, or at least express the one he has. In typically Modernist vocabulary, he responded:

Asked about reconciling the church's "pro-life" theology with Obama's "pro-choice" politics, Diaz ... suggested that a media interview is not the forum for straightforward ethical statements on abortion.

"In order for me to formulate what I would like to formulate, it would take me more than a simple answer," Diaz said. "So I resist categories of either/or, in terms of arguing this or that. Unfortunately, it does not allow me the time to be able to explain in a thorough and satisfactory way what I mean by whatever I would say I am," he said.
Diaz’s curriculum vitae is interesting.  From wikipedia:

Prior to his service as ambassador, Miguel Diaz was a professor of theology at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University in Minnesota. Díaz is the co-editor of the book From the Heart of Our People: Explorations in Catholic Systematic Theology and author of On Being Human: U.S. Hispanic and Rahnerian Perspectives, named "Best Book of the Year" by the Hispanic Theological Initiative at Princeton Theological Seminary. Díaz has taught religious studies and theology at Barry University, the University of Dayton and the University of Notre Dame. From 2001 to 2003, he taught and served as academic dean at St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary in Boynton Beach, Florida. He is a board member of the Catholic Theological Society of America (CTSA) and past president of the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States (ACHTUS).

And from the news story:


A theology professor who is a former U.S. ambassador to the Vatican is moving from one Roman Catholic university to another after an investigation found it likely that he sexually harassed a married couple where he now works.

Miguel H. Díaz, who was President Obama’s representative to the Holy See from 2009 to 2012, was found to have likely engaged in “unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature” toward a married couple who were his colleagues at the University of Dayton, according to a confidential letter written by Dayton’s provost.

The married couple – husband and wife professors who teach in the humanities – accused Diaz of making various sexual requests and references to sexually explicit feelings. The suggestion that a Catholic theologian suggested an adulterous encounter involving both another man and another woman and that he made unwelcome requests of fellow academics could be problematic for Diaz, a Catholic theologian, who is a married father of four.

Modernist Benedictine "Monastery" to Host Rabbi Promoting Aberrosexuality April 28th

Edit:  St. John's Abbey at Collegeville is probably one of the most vile and evil places in the world, made so much more so by the fact that they misrepresent themselves as good, as Catholic.

They habitually return to lap up their vomit. No public reprimand will change the way they think or the patterns long established here since before the Council, they will continue attacking the Church from behind a Catholic name. No matter how many outrages they've done, many of which are publicly known, as well as the endemic failure this institution suffers in terms of its decline in numbers and fervor, no one really stops them, they suffer no visitation, no interdict,  but they enjoy full recognition by the Catholic Church, despite all of their frequent outrages and insults to Christ.

It's not enough to say that they will die out. Average age of the monks is nearing 70. Shouldn't something be done for their souls, and the souls of the many students who are placed in their spiritual care year after year by largely unsuspecting families?

Rabbi Rachel Timoner will present the free lecture, “Listening for the Spirit of God in Our Pursuit of Justice: Spirituality and Justice in the Jewish Tradition,” at 7:30 p.m. April 28 in Quad 170 at St. John’s University. 
The lecture, sponsored by the Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning, will explore God as spirit, spiritual practices that help nurture the spirit’s gifts and how it relates to creating a better world. 
Timoner is the associate rabbi at Leo Baeck Temple in Los Angeles, where she focuses on social justice, spiritual life and lifelong learning.
She worked for 13 years with social justice organizations, and was honored by the San Francisco Examiner for helping to break the isolation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth.

Decadent Monastery Still Running from the Crimes of Its Past

Josh Guimon who disappeared 11 years ago from campus.
Edit: with about 153 professed monks and shrinking, there are as many as 50 predators in the decaying and rotting Abbey of St. John's,  according to Patrick Marker.  Although the relatively smaller number of offenders has been played up by the press against Archbishop Nienstedt, relatively little attention has been given to dissident Collegeville which hosts an atmosphere of moral theological, and liturgical indifferentism.

While there are diocesan libertines demanding Archbishop Niensted's resignation, not one of them are calling for accountability where it counts.   There are  still questions about the disappearances of Josh Guimond and Jacob Wetterling, which mostly likely, are known only to the Modernist Monastery.

Let's not pretend that this kind of moral depravity doesn't walk arm in arm with the heresy of Modernism which allows these bawds to continue their monastic charade.

"I think St. John's is hopeful the media won't pay attention to this," he said.

It would be easy for the St. John's list to get lost with the others that have come out, but victim's advocates have always been interested in the names because of two very high-profile missing person's cases. St. John's college student Josh Guimond vanished from campus 11 years ago while leaving a campus party, and he hasn't been seen since. Then, there's Jacob Wetterling, who was abducted 24 years ago from nearby St. Joseph, where the local Catholic priest was Father Tom Gillespe, a Benedictine monk who, by then, had already molested a 10-year-old boy.

"He was one of the first people to visit the Wetterling's home to console the family," Marker said. "I'm not saying he did it, but I believe a full examination of facts will lead us to Josh and Jacob."

Marker believes the numbers of abusers that St. John's Abbey knows about may total at least 50 altogether. Three of the monks on the list were also on the list released by the archdiocese, meaning they also worked at parishes in the Twin Cities; however, it is important to note that Benedictine monasteries are operated separately from the archdiocese.

It's a good thing these men didn't do anything like offer a Latin Mass, teach traditional Catholic doctrine on morality to the students of their "schools"  or anything like that, then they'd really be in trouble.  Seems like the only thing the people of Minnesota won't stand, is honest to goodness Catholicism.

Critic of Modernist Monastery Banned From Class Reunion

Edit: besides Pat Marker, and the late Tom Roeser, there really have been no serious critics of the Modernist Monastery of Collegeville.  He edits an assiduously documented chronicle of Collegeville's malfeasance with respect to its past deeds and the destruction it continues to wreak as they refuse to acknowledge their misdeeds and pathologically attack those who justifiably expose them.  For all this and despite their interminable and very public dissent from Church teaching and the presence of a very large and dangerous coven of sexual deviants, 23 of whom have been credibly accused (although there are more), Collegeville sails on with generous support from various donors like Tom Petters, Exxon Mobile, UNESCO, Dell Computers, and so on. Even George Bush Sr. wasn't ashamed to appear at St. John's Preparatory, the Abbey's prestigious high school, the receive an award from this same institution.

Part of the reason for Modernist Collegeville's present temperamental outburst must have to do with the fact that Marker has been critical of Father Jerome Tupa, whose pornographic art featuring the use of real gold was recently criticized, along with some credible accusations against Tupa..

We hope some will remember that Tupa testily attacked Marker's work as "calumny" and "being libelous talk" and even attacked the University Newspaper for publishing Marker's words. [Tupa never specifies how Marker's efforts are libelous, but they must not be if the Abbey hasn't taken him to court yet and only resorts to slander.]

Marker was actually invited to his reunion, and was then asked to leave after he had arrived, and was speaking to friends. We're reminded of the strange behavior of other Bishops in the Church.



Here's the story from the St. Cloud Times, where Marker was invited to his High School reunion, but then asked to leave by security subsequently. We think that such pettiness really speaks to the kinds of men who gather at St. John's Abbey.

In defining its core values, St. John’s Preparatory School lists “Community” as its first one — followed by these words: 
Our school is community, providing hospitality and demonstrating citizenship. Life together in this place is built on trust, love, respect and a genuine interest and concern for one another, which includes welcoming, helping, listening, caring and being present to others.” [Words don't mean what they say, clearly, they can't even abide by this mealy 501-C style statement.]
Framed against those words, it’s hard to understand why the school, led by the Order of St. Benedict, decided now to ban a prep school alumnus from all of the order’s property for a year — even if the alumnus is highly critical of how the order has handled clergy sex abuse cases. 
As reported in the Times, Patrick Marker — a member of the school’s Class of 1983 — first was required to leave the prep school’s Class of 1983 reunion on June 29 despite it inviting him to attend. About a week later, on July 8, he received a letter from the order barring him from its property for a year.

Modernist Monk Inflamed About His Clique Being Called out by Cincinnati Vocations Director

What a Wonderful Day for an Auto de Fe
Edit: flamers gonna flame...   Father Anthony Ruff is having a clerical tizzy meltdown over a spade being called a spade at his Pray, Tell blog.   He complains about a priest who is the Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Father Martin Fox, who writes in Bonfire of the Vanities about a gathering of dissident Warlock Priests in Oregon, the Association of Catholic [sic] Priests.

What this is is a case of a "Catholic" priest complaining about a Catholic point of view described by the  good Vocations Director, and of course, the unstated and growing paranoia on the part of Father Ruff, that his cohorts of Liberalism and relativism are thinning and dying away.

 Father Ruff himself is an Old Liberal dissident of dubious orthodoxy who works at the Modernist Monastery, a hotbed of Old Liberal dissent and Gomorrist syncretism, if not manifest heresy, who has recently taken another priest to task for his tone.   Father Ruff can disparage the hierarchy, but when various organizations associated with the aging lavender clerocracy in the United States are justifiably attacked, he's beside himself and wants something to be done about the Vocations Director of the Cincinnati Archdiocese.

No one held Ruff responsible for attacking Pope Benedict's agenda for the translation of the New Mass that we know of, and no one holds Ruff or his superiors responsible for undermining the Catholic Faith, either.  So why should Father Fox be held responsible for doing what is right and doing nothing other than stating an obvious truth that this post-Vatican II crew is dying out?

Here's a sample of Ruff's simpering:


Fr. Martin Fox, writing in his personal blog, Bonfire of the Vanities, has issued a broadside against the Association of Catholic Priests and their upcoming meeting in Seattle, calling it the “Sad-funny-ironic swan-song of the ‘Spirit of Vatican 2′ crowd.”

Calling their agenda “pointless,” his dismissive remarks about the group, which has 950 members, highlight not only the generational differences between age cohorts in the American Catholic priesthood, but also the increasingly acerbic and derogatory tone that younger priests feel free to take in public when speaking about their elder brothers.[Ruff misrepresents Fox on several occasions throughout this blog entry and in the subsequent hilarity of the ensuing comments. That's not particularly brotherly.]

In fact, it would be hard to tell from Fr. Fox’s remarks that he regards older priests as brothers at all, much less valued older colleagues in ministry. They are described more as if they are either enemies or a pathetic nuisance to be gotten out of the way. Younger priests such as Fr. Fox, confident that they hold the whip hand, now seem ready to snap it — on other priests.

Continue reading at Pray, Tell...

One positive thing with this is that it shows that higher ranking clergy, including Bishops, are finally calling out the bad fruit.  If there is a gap in the "former bastion of priestly solidarity" it's only because there are too many priests who are disobedient, heterodox and frankly evil, promoting pernicious doctrines under the guise of the Catholic Church, with relative impunity I might add.

Dissident Priest is on Sabbatical to Anglican Monastery for Year: Discipline?

Edit: since attacking the Church during the campaign on behalf of marriage which was promoted heavily by the Diocese, involving the prayer, expense and personal time by many in the Diocese, Father Bob Pierson O.S.B. had taken it upon himself to challenge traditional Church teaching and attack that campaign.


Father Pierson is a monk at the decaying Monastery of St. John's in Collegeville Minnesota who has done a lot of things he will one day have to answer for.


He has also been known for other offenses in the past, for example,  he resigned from his job as Campus Minister at Saint John's University when Pope Benedict announced new norms (which are generally ignored in most places) about formation for priests in the seminary, that they may not have deep seated problems with respect to homosexuality.

In the last year, he also hosted a naked retreat which would involve "touching". At the time, we felt that  it was the surfacing of one of the previous Abbot's methods of instruction for his novices, whom he insisted on interviewing in the nude.

Then, Pierson seems to have gotten himself banned from speaking in the Archdiocese of Minneapolis and St. Paul, where the Archbishop told him not to speak any longer in his jurisdiction, as a result of attacking the Archbishop's defense of marriage initiative.  That didn't stop Father Pierson from continuing to speak in other parts of the United Stats, and to use his Facebook page to promote his anti-Catholic agenda.

Now, Father Bob Pierson's Facebook page is down and he's on sabbatical for a year at an Anglican Monastery called Holy Cross in West Park, New York.  We hope that he decides not to return after his "sabbatical" and hope that his stay in Holy Cross becomes permanent, barring a dramatic road to Damascus of some kind for this persecutor of Christians.  It would be nice if it were more obvious that this was some part of a disciplinary action on the part of someone.  There's no indication it is, but hopefully, Pierson will follow through with his occasional threat and find the more doctrinally suitable, if unsound, Anglican communion his permanent home from now on.

Byproduct of Modernist Abbey Pleads Guilty to Molestation

Mr. Feeney minored in “theology” at St. John’s University.
Edit: as aforementioned, a devious predator has been sentenced with extensive contacts to a Modernist Monastery.  Now it looks like he’s going to be going to prison for a long time.

In a related story, Father Jerome Tupa, a pornographic “artist” has displayed his work at a St. Joseph Parish after the Palm Sunday Vigil.

An alumnus of the St. John's University, Mathew David Feeney, run by the Monastery of St. John's Abbey, according to Pine Curtain, was recently accused of sexually abusing two boys he promised would go to Hollywood in the capacity of his talent agency, Walden Entertainment.


[Fox News] Former Twin Cities talent agent Matthew Feeney pleaded guilty to molesting children in Washington County Court Monday.

Two brothers who were working with Feeney accused the agent of touching them inappropriately. His plea means Feeney's young victims won't have to go through a trial in May, when prosecutors will ask a judge to give Feeney nine years in prison.

He admitted touching the youngest brother who was nine at the time when he slept over at his house, and admitted to molesting the older brother when he was 16.

The youngest victim, now 12, was in court. His mother spoke out in defense of her son.

"He said, ‘I hope he spends every day in prison wondering what is going to happen to him, like I used to wonder what he was going to do to me," the victim's mother said.

There was no plea deal in terms of Feeney's sentence. State guidelines call for up to nine years in prison for someone with a history like Feeney's. He was also convicted 20 years ago of three cases of sexually abusing boys when he was a Catholic church youth director and worked at a catholic youth camp.

Feeney's attorney will argue for a shorter sentence than that, but did not specify the length.

"No sentence is long enough because he'll just get out and do it again," the victim's mother said.

The time Feeney did in court Monday does may not be the end of it. He's also accused of molesting the son of a relative in Massachusetts, and due in court on those charges later this month.

Benedictine Monastery Continues to Promote Homoheresy


Edit: the Guesthouse Master at the Modernist Monastery in Collegeville is speaking publicly against chastity and the teachings of the Catholic Faith. When he’s not attacking the Archbishop’s efforts to defend the Catholic Family, he’s promoting nude retreats, and getting away with it despite repeated warnings from the local ordinary.
Courageous  [sic] priest joins us in February to uphold church teaching on the fundamental call to show respect and compassion for LGBTQ persons. 
Fr. Bob Pierson, a Benedictine priest out of the Collegeville MN Abbey in Minnesota, stood forth publicly last summer to emphasize the primacy of the informed conscience in respect to voting on Minnesota's marriage amendment. Since then he's been barred from several dioceses in Minnesota. He'll join us in this QCF conversation to speak also of the church teaching to show respect, love and compassion to our LGBTQ sisters and brothers, and to resist unjust discrimination. How is the whole church challenged by these teachings? 
The conversation begins at 9:00 EASTERN, Tuesday, February 26, 2013. Attendace is free, as usual, and all are invited to submit live questions and comments during the hour.
 
February 26th, 2013 9:00 PM   through   10:00 PM

Byproduct of CINO Education Now Obama's Chief of Staff

*CINO = Catholic in Name Only

Edit: the brother of the troubled former Vicar General of the Archdiocese of St. Paul in Minnesota, the Old Liberal, Father Kevin McDonough, has now been announced as Chief of Staff.

Denis McDonough attended the decadent Monastery school of St. John's University and was the star of John Gagliardi's famed football franchise.  St. John's University is a haven for predators, deviants and worse, dissenters from Catholic teaching.

The nut doesn't fall far from the tree.

For those who don't remember, Father McDonough was identified as a problem in the Archdiocese by local activist Doctor David Pence.  The priest, who was born in Stillwater, Minnesota in a family of 11, went on record as denying a homosexual subculture in the Archdiocese, as it was reported at Lifesitenews.

The priest was subsequently moved from his Vicar General slot down to be the assistant of a small, failing parish in South Minneapolis.

The other brother, William McDonaugh didn't agree with his brother's assessment and lamented that it wasn't more over than it already is.
