Name:

For nine years up till July 2010, I was parish priest at St Simon Stock Catholic Church, South Ashford, Kent, England. From July 2010 until June 2011 I was Associate Pastor at St Peter's Cathedral, Marquette, Michigan USA and then Pastor at St Anthony Parish, Gwinn, MI until October 2013. I then transferred to the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon to serve as Director of the Tribunal. And that's what I am currently doing. Since February 2015 I have also been serving as Pastor at St Stephen Parish, South East Portland. I miss "da UP" (Upper Peninsula of Michigan) but love being here in the Pacific North West.

Priest arrested at Notre Dame (aka Notre Shame)

For the benefit of those few parishioners who read this blog, this is the film I referred to in my homily today.

Notre Shame is really flying its colors today. Hubris did not stop them from also arresting Norma McCorvey [the "Roe" in Roe v. Wade which gave the US abortion on demand] today. Norma has been pro-life now for a number of years. Video here.

So far Notre Shame has:

1) invited the most proabortion president the US has ever had and given him an honorary law degree. [Zero also voted when he was in Illinois to allow a baby who'd survived a botched abortion to DIE in a corner without assistance.]

2) arrested numberous pro-lifers including presidential candidate Alan Keyes, a 78 year old priest, and Norma McCorvey

3) Apparently "Father" Jenkins can "dialogue" with a big proabort, but can't "dialogue" with prolife.

4) Judas is alive.

Bishop D'Arcy the bishop of that diocese has sent Jenkins a "strong letter" most of the contents release to the public. But the question is why haven't faculties been pulled? What is the point of having canon law re: the prohibition of allowing a forum for such a person to speak on a Catholic campus? THERE MUST BE CONSEQUENCES other than a "nasty gram" or these people will continue to scandalize the faithful.

I won't be happy until Jenkins is gone from the university and has faculties pulled. Anything less would be an injustice.

Do you have a copy of your sermon to post?

Thanks for the comments from the other side of the pond. To explain to our local readers 'Zero' is your nickname for Obama isn't it?

No copy of sermon, handwritten notes which are now consigned to the sacristy dustbin!
