I received this comment from Archbishop Michael Desmond Hynes OMA PhD (not in union with Rome) on a story I posted from the Washington Post on Sinead O’Connor.
I am amused at you mis information you have on Bishop Michael Cox’s validity. You appear to know nothing about the mandate given to Mons Thuc in 1938 by Pope Pius 1X. or maybe you don’t want to know as there is a lot of money to be earned creating stories that will attract peoples attention thus increasing sales of your reporting etc.
Whether Pope Pius the XI in his Motu Proprio gave the ability to Bishop Thuc to consecrate bishops without Rome’s approval I can not tell. But why would a Thucite Archbishop like Hynes who does not follow the Holy Father care what a previous pope had done if pope’s have no authority. Pope Pius certainly didn’t give this permission for all time and for all those consecrated by Bishop Thuc to consecrate bishops themselves. The comment on my motives was also pretty funny since he doesn’t seem to be aware that the majority of bloggers don’t get a penny for their effort or in my case I lay out money each month to host my blog.
Judge not and you shall not be Judged. Maybe there is a lot of truth in it. As well you seem to have a very superficial knowledge of Law or history.
Archbishop Hynes must have amazing powers if he was able to discern my lack of education by reading a story I posted from the Washington Post. While I readily admit to not being a history scholar I do know that the ability to ordain bishops does not extend to women. Since Archbishop Hynes also remarries people as long as they are “legally” divorced I wonder who has the superficial knowledge of law or history. Judge not and you shall not judge seems pretty strange to say a line after accusing me of not wanting to know the truth and doing this for money.
As well Sinead O’Connor has done numerous good deeds for people and she does not want me or any body to talk about. God will judge us all on the last day and let us pray that he shall have mercy on the Commercial Catholic Church which is by far the largest of the Universal catholic Church which has emerged form Apostolic Succession.
Commercial Catholic Church, I hadn’t heard that one before. I guess he is only in schism from the church’s CEO.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
I will treasure that profound statement coming from a Thucite Archbishop and I must leave now to buy the necessary smoking equipment to be able to achieve it. As a side note Bishop Thuc founded Dalat University in Vietnam, thankfully not called Thuc U.
Update: I changed the reference in my post to Pope Pius XI vice IX. Thanks to Bill Cork for noticing the mistake.
Wow, Jeff, you have esteemed members of the episcopate reading your blog! You must feel so proud. 😉 Or perhaps he was simply doing a Google search on “Sinead O’Connor” so he could lambaste anyone with the temerity to criticize her?
Pope Pius the IX? 1938? Pio Nono died sixty years prior.
Thanks Bill, my error for not fact checking what the Archbishop posted.
“Thuc U”–Heh, heh!
BTW, I LOVED your suggestions at Josh Claybourn’s site for a title for Bill Clinton’s potential new blog! Just perfect!
