Castrated or Non-Existent?

Last October, the test was the heterodoxy on the gay marriage issue. On the one hand, the pro-gay marriage Fr. Massingale got near unlimited space to blather on in "our" Catholic Herald...but in the other hand he was was suddenly canceled when he was scheduled to offer his tripe at St. John Vianney Parish in Brookfield (recently given new, if only temporary, leadership).

Now His Excellency, the chief teacher and guardian of orthodoxy in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, has another chance to prove what he's got.

Thanks to Fr. Bob Wilde's, wild, wild west side university, we will soon get to see if Archbishop Dolan has the courage to do what other bishops have done, and prevent the atrocity of a supposedly "Catholic" University putting on THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES.

To help provide vertabrae for His Excellency's backbone, every faithful Catholic should do two things: Write a letter to Fr. Bob Wilde-side, with a copy to His Excellency; and a separate letter to His Excellency with a copy to Fr. Wilde. Paper copies are better than e-mail.

Here are the addresses:

The Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan
Archdiocese of Milwaukee
P. O. Box 070912
Milwaukee, WI 53207-0912

Fr. Robert Wilde, S.J.
Office of the President
P. O. Box 1881
Milwaukee, WI 53201-1881

I offer all of this with no real hope that anything will really be done by the feminist powers that be at the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

Please do write.

News from the west.

Sources at the parish tell me that Fr. Paul Hartmann has been appointed "administrator" of St. John Vianney Parish in Brookfield. The pastor, Fr. Leonard Van Vlaenderen, (yes, Archbishop Weakland's right hand man) is said to be taking a leave for "health" reasons.

Fr. Hartmann is said to be originally from St. John's parish. He seems to be the got-to troubleshooter for Archbishop Dolan.

Time will tell how this develops regarding both Fr. Van Vlaenderen and Fr. Hartmann.
