Last week, I hinted at an upcoming appointment in the Cardinal's Cabinet that would be, for once, an individual with a reputation for authentic Catholicism.

The appointment was announced today - but, as usual, there is a warped twist.

Scot Landry, one of the few people left in the diocese who knows the difference between Fr. Corapi and Walter Cuenin and has been succesful in bringing orthodox resources and programs into the diocese, is being shuffled into Ken Hokensen's job (fundraising).

That's not even the worst part.

Brace yourself.

Sr. Marian Batho, CSJ, new Secretary for Regional Services, has most recently served as Delegate for Religious in the Archdiocese of Boston. Sr. Batho has been the primary liaison for more than 2,800 men and women religious of the Archdiocese. Sr. Batho has generously agreed to continue that important ministry as she assumes the responsibilities of her position.

As Secretary for Regional Services Sr. Batho will represent the Cardinal in fulfilling his stated goal of moving the operations of the Church closer to the parishes, laity, and clergy of the Archdiocese. Sr. Batho will oversee evaluation and implementation of best practices for parish programs serving the needs of the laity.

Here's what a friend had to say about Marian Batho:

I have very little use for Sr. Marian Batho. She's from the Srs of St.
Joseph. Never wears a habit, lives in an apartment somewhere. Just like
Saunders is an empty suit over at MCC, I think even if Sr. Marian wore a habit, it
would probably be an empty one.

Scott Landry is now fundraising so the dissenters can sever the people in the parishes from the faith coming out of the Vatican.

"I am honored for the support and confidence Cardinal Seán has shown in me as I undertake this new endeavor on behalf of the Church," said Sr. Batho. "Vibrant parish life is central to the Cardinal's goals for the future of our Archdiocese. The major focus of my ministry will be serving the people of the Archdiocese at the parish level."

In regard to the new appointments of Scot Landry and Sr. Marian Batho, Fr. Richard Erikson, Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia, added, "these appointments reflect Cardinal Seán's sincere efforts to enhance lay and religious ministry and leadership in the Archdiocese.

I like my friend's synopsis much better: charge of the thankless 'uphill battle' job of raising $$, in the face of a very broken Church overrun by dissidents, with no moral leadership whatsoever...

Looks like we're all going to be gathering a lot more around EWTN and our networks in cyberspace!

Nighty, nights kiddos!
