ALERT: 3rd Vatican Council announced [Fr. Z]


#1

And now from the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation, we have this about our lost sheep… er um… shepherd… um… whatever, H.E. Emmanuel Milingo:

Milingo launches the 3rd Vatican

Ex-communicated Catholic Archbishop, Emmanuel Milingo says the Movement for Married Priests is in the process of establishing the third Vatican Council to shape the future of the renewed Catholic Church.

Archbishop Milingo said the third Vatican Council will be launched in South Korea before the end of this month. [Do I detect a little full Moonie influence here?]

He told ZNBC news shortly before he and his wife Maria Sung left for South Korea that proposals for the foundation have already been made.

Archbishop Milingo also said the movement is preparing for the Universal Peace Federation meeting.

He indicated that faith based groups will soon hold a symposium on Catholicism.

Archbishop Milingo boasted that his organisation will provide air tickets for delegates from the Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC) if they are willing to attend the ceremony.

The Archbishop, 78, leads 150,000 married priests across the world. [150K…. yah… riiiight….]

He was ex-communicated for holding divergent views from the Catholic Church and marrying priests. [Not to mention his own deal….]
As our good friend, the official WDTPRS parodist offered us some comic relief…

… to the tune of the famous song in The Sound of Music:

How do you solve a problem like Milingo
He sneaks around and can’t be found,
Until he’s on TV…
He takes a Moonie for a wife,
Embracing heresy;
And underneath his mitre,
Seems his lost his sanity.
I heard him once professing Docetism.

He’s always breaking canons
But his penitence is real
He’s always late for everything
Except for every meal
I hate to have to say it
But I very firmly feel
Milingo’s even worse than Charlie Curran!

I’d like to say a word in his behalf
(then say it, Sr. Margaretta)
Milingo makes me… laugh.

How do you solve a problem like Milingo?
How do you make a bishop keep in line?
How do you find a word that means Milingo?
A flibbertijibbet! A will-o’-the wisp! A clown!

If bishops are dogs, Emmanuel is a dingo Which even a German Shepherd couldn’t tame.
So how do you make him stay
And shut up for just one day?
How do you keep a crosier from his hand?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Milingo?
How do you keep a Moonie’s feet on land?

When I’m with him I’m distressed
Things he blesses don’t seem blessed
And you never know what stunt he’s pulling next He’s defiant as M. Luther Wacky as Rosemary Reuther He’s a bishop! He’s a nutcase! He’s a wreck!

He’s a Gnostic without Gnoss
Like a crosier sans a cross
He could make a Trappist hermit scream out loud He is funny, he wild Pray his wife is not with child!
He’s a headache, he’s amusing
He’s a looooooon

How do you solve a problem like Milingo?
How do you make a bishop keep in line?
How do you find a word that means Milingo?
A flibbertijibbet! A will-o’-the wisp! A clown!

Many a thing you know you’d like to tell him:
Celibacy’s not just a papal whim
So how do you make him stay
And shut up for just one day?
How do you keep a crosier from his hand?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Milingo?
How do you keep a Moonie’s feet on land?

Full entry…

How can it be a “vatican Council” if it is held in Korea?


#3

david,
My question exactly.


#4

LOL!

And here I thought Pope Benedict had *really *surprised us all!

Edwin


#5

Yeah. Me too.

My first thought was…“Cool…when…”

Then I started reading…

Chuck


#6

OK… Ya got me too… I was thinking Pope Benedict was holding a council…

So does this mean the guy holding it thinks he is pope?


#7

BWAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHA!


#8

To quote that famous social commentator, Bugs Bunny, “What a maroon.”

He doesn’t even know how the Church names ecumenical councils? How did this guy ever graduate from seminary let alone be consecrated a bishop? Did he suffer a head injury?

And who cares about “faith-based groups” holding a “symposium” on Catholicism. I mean what “faith-based group” is he talking about; The Fellowship of Christian Athletes?


#9

The phrases *Politically Correct and Affirmative Action *occur to me. :frowning:


#10

I would have thought that the Council will be held in Sydney… after all, His Holiness is coming over to Sydney for WYD!!! =P


#11

:rotfl:

But seriously, we should pray for our brother…

This is an example of the effect of his sin. That’s probably what happens when a bishop listens …to his wife!
