Re my “multiple” user names,
Jaypeeto3 is how I sign in on my office computer when I’m on a break. I just got my home computer a few weeks ago, and created Jaypeeto4 as my home user name cuz I didn’t remember the password for Jaypeeto3.
As for cheering on everything that officials of the church declare,
we ought to recall that duly appointed officers of “the church” officially declared Joan of Arc a WITCH and had her burned at the stake. Then, centuries later, “the church” declared her a Saint.
The pope himself did not suspend Father Gruner, who has by the way not committed any “schismatic” act at all.
His “sin” was refusing to return to Avellino to live (which legally he cannot do anyway cuz the Bishop of Avellino must take certain steps FIRST before Gruner could do that under Italian law, which legal steps the bishop has nevere taken).
Remember, he was given a choice: either return to Avellino to live, or get incardinated in another diocese by another Bishop.
Gruner chose to try to get incardinated by another Bishop.
He was successful. He was and IS incardinated by the Archbishop of Hyderabad, India. So legally and morally, he complied with the choice he was given. This suspension is in my view, grossly unjust and grossly immoral and therefore not binding in the eyes of God, Who never sides with injustice.
Father Gruner may indeed be wrong about the 1984 consecration being sufficient, but other than that he is a 100% orthodox conservative priest who has not done or taught ANYTHING against the Catholic faith.
It is simply amazing to me that the officials in the Vatican cannot “find the time” to , say, REMOVE Mahoney as Archbishop of Los Angeles thereby protecting Los Angeles Catholics from this wolf in Cardinal’s clothing, but yet they DO have the time to harass and persecute a harmless orthodox priest over the results of a private revelation.
Officials of the church ARE NOT always right when they issue decrees.
Love, Jaypeeto4 (aka Jaypeeto3)
