Lots of news -

First and foremost...Romney now says Catholic Hospitals must be forced to kill children

Bryan Hehir had this in the bag all along. He took over the Mass Catholic Conference, direct them not to respond to emergency contraception telling them to spin it by saying Catholics will had legal out, which of course, those of us who knew what was going on with Hehir's proabort "catholicism", refuted.





Dear ________________:

In case you haven't already seen it - am forwarding to you (below) in your official capacity at the CDF, the response of the Archdiocese to a recommendation from the Holy See. The hierarchal structure of the Roman Catholic Church in Boston has officially been replaced with "committees" of lay people.

This schismatic decision-making structure has been in place for almost two years and is fully operating in many capacities in the diocese. I hope this letter helps you to understand the urgency of the situation we have in the Archdiocese and in fact, the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts.


The Commonwealth has just announced today they intend to force Catholic Hospitals to participate in abortions or face prosecution.

Before Rev. Hehir pulls together a "committee" and "stacks" it with proaborts and those with prior histories of advocating personal consent to their sexual temptations prohibited by our religion, to come to a conclusion about whether employees should go along with the Commonwealth - and we have to open up the Boston Globe to read that the Archbishop has announced he will not go to Catholic Hospitals - and next year we see the Lt. Governor being honored by Bryan Hehir -- may I suggest that you inform the Holy Father of the emergency situation? The Archbishop must be ordered to shut down Catholic Hospitals in Commonwealth. I cannot stress enough how critical this is to the entire United States. We have got to stop them right here and right now.

There is no other choice. The Dept of Health should be notified today, December 9th, 2005 - that the Emergency Rooms at all Catholic Hospitals will be shut down on December 14th and patients redirected and spend the next few months, transferring patients out of our hospitals. Not a single abortion should be committed in our hospitals.

Our history relies upon 2000 years of documented martyrdom for refusing to go along with governmental orders that we are prohibited from executing.

I will fax this communication to the Nuncio - we are rounding up others to do the same.

Thank you in advance for understanding why I am jumping out of protocol to seek emergent intercession.

In Christ, Carol McKinley

here are the quotes:

A top church official in Washington is urging Archbishop Sean P. O'Malley to stop Catholic Charities of Boston from brokering adoptions unless same-sex couples are excluded, a source close to the hierarchy in the capital told the Herald.



The recommendation was contained in a letter sent recently from the office of Archbishop Gabriel Montalvo Higuera, the papal nuncio, the source said on condition of anonymity.

The recommendation was contained in a letter sent recently from the office of Archbishop Gabriel Montalvo Higuera, the papal nuncio, the source said on condition of anonymity.



The archdiocese, asked about the letter, issued a statement saying, "As a matter of course, the archdiocese does not comment on any private communications it might receive from the Holy See."



"The dioceses of Massachusetts are currently reviewing the issue of Catholic Charities having facilitated adoptions for same-sex couples," the statement continues. "The bishops expect to receive a recommendation concerning this matter early in the New Year."



That recommendation will come from a commission that was established to study the situation.

There were several stories in the Boston Herald today regarding the situation in the diocese....

This one lists the various struggles now taking place.

This one was good too - - pressure in the diocese, sayeth the press, is coming from high up.

Ya think?

“It’s really not that difficult. What they should do is shut their doors or prostitute themselves. It should be a simple call, but it won’t be because they have relied on state money for so long,” said William Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights.

Wait until he gets a load of the new world order at Catholic Hospitals.


The papal push is being felt worldwide. In Melbourne, Australia, Archbishop Denis Hart cancelled an annual lecture sponsored by an archdiocesan agency which was to be delivered by a prominent politician who favors legal abortion.


And, of course - - there was this one regarding the adoption policies of Catholic Charities which conflict with the orders of the Holy See.

Sure is heating up around here.

Subj: Boston Update: Mayor Menino Situation
Date: Thu Dec 8, 2005 4:34 pm
Size: 20K
To: christifid@comcast.net


Dear fellow Catholics,

Here’s just a quick update on the outreach efforts to stop Mayor Tom Menino’s honor on Friday and preserve the faith.

More than 600 people have signed the petition to the Mayor asking him to withdraw since Monday. About 155 of those also sent a message to Archbishop O’Malley asking him to uninvite the Mayor, correct his doctrinal misstatements, and address the problems with Catholic Charities leadership. All messages were sent to the four Catholic bishops in Massachusetts, and most respondents also copied Bishop Skylstad (USCCB President), and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Thank you for your enthusiastic support and participation! To date, there has been no response.

What else can you do? There’s no single answer. But, based on news released just this afternoon that the State of Massachusetts will now be forcing emergency contraception on Catholic Hospitals, it is urgent that we continue fighting to uphold Church teachings in the public square, and encourage Catholic Church leaders to courageously do the same, especially now with the Menino situation.


So, here is what we would propose as next steps for everyone who have been asking. Whatever you have the time and capacity to do is helpful from the options below.

1) Call Archbishop O’Malley’s office at 617-782-2544 this afternoon or Friday morning. Ask to leave a message requesting that the Archbishop:
a) Publicly correct Mayor Menino’s doctrinal errors, such as, "When the pope speaks on doctrine, that is absolute. I don't think choice and gay marriage are doctrine" (Boston Globe, Nov. 30 2005). This egregious misrepresentation has been read by hundreds of thousands of people across New England and must be corrected
b) Insist that Catholic Charities still uninvite Menino
c) Appoint and install new leadership at Catholic Charities
d) Courageously defend authentic Church beliefs in the face of dissent and intrusions by the state (e.g. emergency contraception now forced on Catholic hospitals, gay adoptions)

2) Call the Papal Nuncio's office in Washington, DC at (202) 333-7121 and ask him to intervene to protect the faith.

Most Reverend Gabriel Montalvo
Apostolic Nunciature of the Holy See
3339 Massachusetts Ave., N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20008-3687
Fax: (202) 337-4036

Your message covers similar points as those listed above. We are asking the papal nuncio to urge Archbishop O’Malley to take action on those same four areas. Note: the people who answer the phone will push back,saying the papal nuncio doesn't get involved and asking you to send a letter; so insist they take and pass along your message. Then, if you have time, send a fax. The Holy See, via the nuncio, just intervened to urge Archbishop O’Malley to end Catholic Charities’ brokering of adoptions to homosexual couples, so there is good reason to believe the Holy See will intervene to help fix the problems at Catholic Charities as well.

3) Send a fax to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome

Archbishop William Joseph Levada
Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine Faith
Piazza del S. Uffizio 11
00193 Rome, VATICAN CITY
Fax: 011.39.06.69.88.3409

Same message as above—urge Archbishop Levada to intervene in whatever way he is willing to help preserve and defend Catholic doctrine in Boston.


4) Send a fax to the Congregation for Bishops in Rome.

Giovanni Battista Cardinal Re
Congregation for Bishops
Piazza Pio XII 10
00193
Rome, Italy
Phone: 011.39.06.69.88.42.17
Fax: 011.39.06.69.88.53.03

Same message as above—urge Cardinal Rey to intervene to encourage the Archbishop to take bold action


5) Attend the protest taking place at the Catholic Charities event on Friday evening, December 9.

Picket Catholic Charities Dinner Dec. 9 Honoring Menino
There will be a picket of Catholic Charities annual dinner, for its choice to honor Boston Mayor Tom Menino, on Friday, Dec. 9, 5:15-6:45 p.m. at the Boston Harbor Hotel, 70 Rowes Wharf (big archway) on Atlantic Ave.

For more information, see Operation Rescue's web site, www.ORBoston.org.


6) Email Pope Benedict XVI at: benedictxvi@vatican.va

Thanks again for your participation and support toward defending Catholic beliefs in the public square. Please do pray especially for Archbishop Sean O’Malley and all of our bishops, that the Holy Spirit give them the strength and courage to take bold action in defense of Catholic moral principles and beliefs. We will keep you posted on the results in a few days.

In Him,
The Christifideles.net team
