Francis' Synod Boss, “There Are Many Homosexual Priests”

The Church “must change” [= imitate the hapless Protestants], Luxembourg Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, 63, general rapporteur of Francis’ Synod, told La-Croix.com (August 3).

He repeats the prejudices of the Church's enemies, claiming, for example, that women are "at the centre of the Church" but "have been ignored too much." The truth: Christ is at the centre of the Church and the Church's problem is that she is ignored by men.

Hollerich believes that clergy formation "must change", “It must not focus only on the liturgy, even though I understand that seminarians attach great importance to it.” The truth: since Vatican II - 60 years ago - the liturgical formation of the seminarians has been reduced to zero.

Unprompted, Hollerich moves on to his favourite topic - sex: “We need to change the way we look at sexuality. Until now, we have had a rather repressed vision of sexuality.” The truth: If people had followed this "repressed vision" there would be no Aids, monkeypocks, divorce, sexual decadence, abortions, and lack of offspring.

According to Hollerich, “it's not about telling people they can just do anything or abolishing morality, BUT I think we need to say that sexuality is a gift from God." The truth: Sexuality becomes a gift from the devil with a Hollerich morality.

Hollerich wants homosexual priests ("there are many of them") to be able to talk to their bishop about it "without the latter condemning them.” The truth: Bishops condemn Roman Rite priests, not homosexual acts.

Obviously, Hollerich also questions celibacy, while Saint Peter says to Christ, "We have left all, and followed thee (Lk 18:28)".

For Hollerich, it is obvious “that every priest falls in love from time to time” and the question is “how to act in this case.” But if this is true for celibate priests, it is also true for any married man.

“There Are Many Homosexual Priests”. If you know it, throw them out.
John A Cassani
The only seminaries that give excessive “liturgical formation” are the ones that encourage priests to be showmen, and this was common in the ‘70s and ‘80s. They taught techniques for extemporaneous prayer, oversized gestures, unusual ways to swing a thurible, etc. Conservative seminaries spend very little time on liturgical formation, outside of daily Mass and the Divine Office.

Young priests are concerned about it, for the laity, because they’ve grown up in the post VII disaster.
