The Rainbow Flag With a Cross

Parishoners of Resurrection Church, Avondale, Chicago burned this  flag with the rainbow colors signifying LGBTQ,  overlaid with a transparent Catholic Cross.  And all hell broke loose!

The current pastor, Rev. Father Paul Kalchik had planned to burn the flag, which gives conflicting ‘faith’ signals, and had published the date in the church bulletin.

This is what he wrote:

“On Saturday, September 29, the Feast of Saint Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, we will burn, in front of the church, the rainbow flag that was unfortunately hanging in our sanctuary during the ceremonial first Mass at Resurrection parish.”

A footnote on his announcement stated, “U.S. Church homosexual scandal is a sequel to the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.”

Father Kalchik, himself, was the victim of abuse twice in his life and is still being treated for PTSD   (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome)  He is a very well loved priest by his parish according to sources I have sought information from.

Now, why should all this cause a disturbance?  It has.

This has caused the LGBTQ community much trouble. They have had to protest on the sidewalk … bringing along their small children.

Cardinal Cupich, who is close to Pope Francis,  ordered that the flag not be burned.

Parishoners then took it into their own hands and burned the flag.  Nonetheless, it appears that Cardinal Cupich will carry out the punishment.

Father Kalchik will be ordered to undergo psychotherapy, and, he will not be moved, as he had been planning on,  from Resurrection Parish to one which is close to his parents. Whether or not the priest will be seeing two psychotherapists remains to be seen.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has this to say on the display of flags in Catholic Churches:

“The origin of the display of the American flag in many parishes in the United States appears to have its origins in the offering of prayers for those who served during the Second World War (1941-1945).  At that time, many Bishops and pastors provided a book of remembrance near the American flag – requesting prayers for loved ones – especially those serving their country in the armed forces – as a way of keeping before the attention of the faithful the needs of military families.  This practice has since been confirmed in many places during the Korean, Viet Nam and Iraqui conflicts.

The Bishops Committee on the Liturgy has in the past encouraged pastors not to place the flag within the sanctuary itself, in order to reserve that space for the altar, the ambo, the presidential chair and the Tabernacle.  Instead, the suggestion has been made that the American flag be placed outside the sanctuary, or in the vestibule of the Church together with a book of prayer requests.

It remains, however, for the diocesan Bishop to determine regulations in this matter.”

Pope Is Not A Psychiatrist

“It is not advisable to defend himself from people who seek the limelight, because it would  feed …their Megalomania” Pope Francis to Victor Manuel Fernandez, Archbishop of La Plata, Argentia and close personal friend,”  speaking of Archbishop Vigano.

Archbishop Fernandez, believed to be the ghostwriter of the Pope’s most controversial publication, Amoris Laetitia, said Monday that Archbishop Vigano is “psychologically unwell and should not be listened to. ”

Are either of these men trained in Psychotherapy?  If they are, they are certainly breaking the patient/Physician confidentiality at the very least.  It  does not seem that they are trained to diagnose mental illness.  Like …. they have probably never seen a ‘Catatonic Schizophrenic.’  This is the ability to remain in the same position, like a statue, for days on end.

An explanation is in order after that!

Megalomania is not a term to be slung around loosely.  It is a serious psychiatric disorder and comes with many symptoms.  I am not trained to diagnose, but, was trained as a student nurse at Seton Psychiatric Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.  That is the same hospital that the former A.W. Richard Sipe was trained in.  He was the Psychotherapist of Boston Fame, and, I hear he was played in the move ‘Spotlight.’   I was about six years ahead of Sipe, but,  most likely we saw many of the same patients.

Megalomania comes with a slew of symptoms and is generally considered as part of another major psychiatric diagnosis, including schizophrenia. The Megalomaniac, or the one with Megalomania is sometimes afflicted with delusions of grandeur.  This is characterized by fantastical beliefs that one is famous, omnipotent, or extremely wealthy.  The delusions, or false beliefs, typically have a religious, scientific, or supernatural theme.  One client which we had was a woman who believed she was the Pope’s sister.  If we did not call her Sister (Popes last name), she would become enraged.  In those days (1950) they still used ‘rubber rooms.’  These walls and floors of these rooms were actually rubberized so that the client would not harm him/her self by banging the head, for example. Sister had to be put in one of these rooms.  We were afraid of her, and, we always called her Sister _______.  Believe me!

With the advent of medications for some of these disorders, the rubber rooms have been done away with, I hope.

Archbishop Fernandez said, in an interview Monday, that the ” Pontiff’s strategy of silence regarding the allegations against him stems from his policy of not feeding people’s craving for attention. ”  Of course that makes sense if one is dealing with a person who is diagnosed as a megalomaniac by a certified Psychotherapist.

It doesn’t make sense if one is the Pontiff addressing the peoples of earth and revealing what he believes about one of his Bishops … but what he really doesn’t know.

What kind of reply would come from His Holiness if President Trump said that he was “a megalomaniac”  because he allowed his picture to be featured on the front cover of Time Magazine?

May Your Tribe Increase, Father Paul Kalchik

Parishoners of Resurrection Parish in Chicago, Illinois, held a rainbow flag burning event last week cutting up and setting on fire an LGBT flag that  once hung in the sanctuary at the parish’s first Mass.  The event was originally scheduled for Sept. 29, the Feast of St. Michael and the Archangels, but the Chicago archdiocese … heeding complaints by gay activists … called the pastor, Fr. Paul John Kalchik, and ordered him not to hold the event.  A handful of parishoners took things into their own hands and decided they would burn the flag themselves. The ‘banner’ which was hanging for Cardinal Joseph Bernardin and one of the founders of AGLO, cost $1,000 in a parish which was struggling to hit $4,000 a week.

Ah! At last!

The Rising of the Laity!!

Father Kalchik is a victim of homosexual rape and abuse.  Once at the age of 11 and again at age 19.  He has been pastor of Resurrection Parish for 11 years.  He issued a heartfelt plea to Pope Francis in an open letter calling for an end to clerical cover up.

His strongly worded articles and homilies calling for reform in the Church, in particular denouncing the honosexual predation of clerics, has drawn down the ire of Cardial Blaise Cupich and the Chicago archdiocese, who have threatened to remove his priestly faculties and derail his priestly career.

This parish obviously loves their pastor.  Here are the words of one parishoner:

The Burning of the Banner

“It is important to understand why the rainbow cross banner that hung in Resurrection Church when it was  formed in 1991 has been burned.  This was no regular rainbow flag, but a banner merging the Cross with the rainbow.  It was not an  innocent litttle flag. It was a signal that this parish would be the new “gay” parish, as Father Daniel Montalbano’s previous church, St. Sebastian, and home to gay Mass had been burned down.

Longtime parishoners and deacons have given accounts of the gay Masses that were held in the basement of the rectory and the wild all male parties in the parish house.  The real story of Father Montalbano’s death in 1997, at the age of only 50 is too sordid to be detailed on paper. In cleaning out the rectory, many things, including vestments that were used in the hidden Masses, were taken to Father Paul’s family farm and burned there.

Somehow, the rainbow banner was tucked away, but recently found.  It is visible in the pictures of the 1991 Mass with Cdl Bernardin and Fr. Montalbano.

Also shown is the parish’s first Easter Candle, which is curiously sporting a rainbow too.

It Sounds as though this parish has had enough!  Cardinal Blase Cupich has to go they say

Imagine!  Threatening to take away the priestly faculties of a priest like Father Paul, who was terrorized and abused himself by these monsters.

Yes, monsters !  See the story of Paul Shanley, Pervert Priest on this web site.

May God Help Us!!


Catholic Judge Defends Death Penalty Sentence

Cincinnati Ohio,  (CNA)  Sept. 7, 2018   Catholic Free Press

A Catholic judge in Ohio  who recently sentenced a man to death defended his decision on both legal and theological grounds.

Hamilton County Common Pleas  Judge Patrick Dinkelacker sent convicted serial killer Anthony Kirkland to death row August 28, agreeing with a jury’s recommendation of capital punishment.

Kirkland, 49, was convicted of killing three women and two teenage girls.

He had been serving a life sentence for two of the adult murders, while the death sentence was handed down for killing a 13 and 14 year old girl.

“As a person who morally believes in the sanctity of life, to judge another to determine if the imposition of the death  penalty is appropriateis not a duty I take lightly” Dinkelacker said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

He stressed the rule of law, saying with it, “those not able to protect themselves become prey for those like Kirkland.”

“I took an oath to follow the law and I will do that” the judge said, according to Fox19 Now.

“To do otherwise, is morally, legally, philosophically and theologically wrong.”


Mr. Kirkland killed five women.  Our leader in Rome would have him confined with other human beings, in a comfortable setting, with others who … without a doubt … would fear the man.  May your tribe increase Judge Dinkelacker!

We pray that Mr. Kirkland repents before his sentence is carried out.  We pray that a kindly priest will visit him.  Please Lord, let that happen …

Paul Shanley, Pervert Priest

This is not for the faint of heart.  It is a Reporters version of the Paul Shanley Trial.  Not all of it but enough to make you sick.  Don’t read it if you don’t want to know what they do to our children.  But then … maybe you should. Maybe we all should.  It should come out of the shadows.

Award winning Author of three books,  Theresa Marie Moreau flew to Boston from Los Angeles to cover the trial of Paul Shanley.  Her article on Shanley won Honorable Mention at the Los Angeles Press Club’s 48th Annual Southern California Journalism Awards in June 2006.

The story, which certain people, especially some Bishops and Cardinals … even a Pope …    would like to gloss over … must be known for the horror of it.”

And this is the way it was:

“If you tell, no on will believe you” Father Paul Shanley whispers the warning as he kneels before his six year old parishoner.  The boy stands still.  He dares not move, as his pants are unzipped and pulled down around his ankles by the consecrateds hands of the 52 year old beloved priest.  The Reverend Father carresses, rubs, then grasps, in his not-so-holy fist, the boy’s body.

“This is how it’s supposed to be done,” Shanley says, then wraps his lips around the boys’ penis.  A faucet drips as the sick sweetness of urinal deodorant fills the ar in the bathroom hidd in the basement of St. Jean L’Evangeliste Church in Newton, Massachusetts  Shanley switches off the bathroom’s overhead bulb.

Darkness overcomes the light.

On the witness stand, remembering the assaults proves too much for the victim, now a 27 year old fireman  in Newton, his hometown.  The victim asked news organizations not to use his name, so I will call him Ron (not his real name).  This former military Policeman, with a hair-trigger temper who disdains authority, chokes on the sobs, buried inside more than 20 years before.  Over three days in January, for almost 14 hours in the Middlesex County Superior Court, Ron recounts with difficulty the rapes and molestation he suffered from 1983 to 1989, from the age of 6 to 12, at the blessed hands of Father Shanley.

Ron hides his hawk like eyes with the heels of his hands.  Furiously he whips his fingers across his eyes to wipe away the tears that flow down to his cheeks.

In the line of questioning Ron, Assistant District Attorney Lynn Rooney lays the groundwork for the Massachusetts Commonwealth’s case against Shanley.  He faces four charges:  two counts of rape of a minor under the age of 16 and two counts of indecent assault and battery of a minor under the age of 14.  Rooney already has a track record.

She is the same prosecutor who won the case against Father John Geoghan, convicted in January 2002 of indecent assault against a 10 year old boy after fondling him in a public swimming pool.

Rooney guides Ron -the sole remaining witness against Shanley – through the landmines that dot the years of abuse, a bathroom in an isolated corner of St. Jean’s basement, the pews, the confessional, the rectory.

The three others, also named in the indictment  have fallen, one by one, off the case.  Emotionally fragile as a result of the abuse they allegedly suffered under Shanley, they cannot face him

Ron again:

I used to go to confession, but I didn’t make any confessions.” Ron notes sarcastically, explaining that on the pretense of rehearsing him for his first confession, Shanley frequently removed the boy from Sunday School Confraternity of Christian Doctrine class.  Once in the reconciliation room, Ron would drop to his knees on the kneeler behind the large chair in which Shanley sat.  But the priest alsays insisted Ron sit in a small chair across from him, face to face.

“What would happen?”  Rooney questions.

“He started undressing me.” Ron says, describing how Shanley would then also undress himself and stand with him in front of an old fashioned flip style mirror positioned in the corner of the reconciliation room.”

“What did he do to you? the prosecutor pushes.

Ron breathes deeply, his face reddens.  With his hand across his face, his eyes hidden behind his fingers, he blurts:  “He used to stick his finger in me.”

“Where?” Rooney demands.  When Ron falters, she again asks, “Where?”

“My bum” he forces out

“How did it feel”  Rooney pushes.

Rons face grows even darker.  His breathing more labored

“It felt awful”  He sobs.

The Hunt For Vigano: Vatican Spies Are Tracking Whistleblower Cardinal

Photo: Quiet Francis      Story From:  Church Militant and Letters From Inside the Vatican by Dr. Robert Moynihan   see at:   Sept. 7, 2018

By Rev. Michael X.,  JCL

Vatican officials are on the hunt for Abp. Carlo Maria Vigano.

According to sources within the Vatican, the Secretariat of State of the Holy See – under the direction of Pietro Cardinal Parolin – has communicated an instruction to its internal and external security services to use its “intelligent resources” to locate the physical whereabouts of Abp. Vigano.

This request has been commnicated not only in order to prevent more unpredictable damage to the image of Pope Francis and the Holy See on the world stage, but also to “prerpare the terrain” for the former apostolic nuncio-turned-whistleblower to be prosecuted for alleged multiple crimes against Vatican and Church law.

The urgency with which the location of Apb. Vigano is being sought is all the more palpable since, according to canon 1507 of the Code of Canon Law and other procedural and penal norms of the Holy See and Vatican City State, Abp.  Vigano cannot be prosecuted or even punished unless he first be given the opportunity to be officially notified in writing of the specific canonical and Vatican crimes he is alleged to have committed and be given the opportunity to defend himself against them.

As first reported by the very well informed Baron Roberto de Mattei (Correspondenza Romana, September 5), criminal counts are said to be in the process of being researched for Vigano having allegedly committed perjury for his having breached pontifical and other forms of state secrecy in violation of, among other norms, the Instruction Secreta continere on the Pontifical Secret issued on February 4, 1974, by Jean Cardinal Villot, (list of Pecorelli) Secretary of State of the Vatican.

The specific Norms of Secreta being researched for applicability and evidence in support of potential prosecution include:

  1.  Art.1-4 for Abp. Vigano’s alleged divulgation of extrajudicial denunciations regarding Theodore Cardinal McCarrick and other clerics referenced by Vigano in his testimony and in the articles of journalists to whom the archbishop is alleged to have disseminated such classified information.
  2. 2.  Art. 1-7 for his alleged disseminationof Vatican secrets gained by reason of office pertaining to appointments of Bishops, specifically regarding the appointment of Cdl. Blase cupich as archbishop of Chicago, Illinois;
  3. 3. Art. 1-9 for his alleged divulgation of the electronically encrypted order transmitted by the Secretariat of State to Abp. Vigano regarding the appointment of Bp. Robert McElroy to the see of San Diego, California.
  4. Art. 1-10 for his breaching of “business or matters which are so grave in nature that they are placed under the Pontifical Secret by the Supreme Pontiff or a Cardinal of the relevant Dicastery.

News of the Vatican deploying its vast international resources to track down and prosecute Abp. Vigano are consistent with his assertions made (veteran Italian Catholic Vaticanist)  Aldo Maria Valli on their final encounter:  that ” Vigano had purchased a plane ticket” and that he was “traveling abroad”,  that he “could not tell (Valli) where”, that Valli should “not try to find him” – that his “old cellular number will no longer be functioning” and that they “saluted one another one last time.”

Vigano, in saying goodbye to Valli, appears to have known exactly what the worst elements of the Vatican and its agents are capable of

Le us hope he has taken every necessary precatution from falling into the hands of those who would wish him ill.

In other words, everything he said was true.  Let us all pray for his physical safety and his emotional well being.  We love you Cardinal Vigano!!   maryanne
