Over the weekend Sean Cardinal O'Malley, OFM Cap., the Archbishop of Boston, has been named a member of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith. I strongly oppose this appointment.
Catholicism in Boston is dead, and no sitting prelate has defended the Catholic Faith since 1944 or said Mass Pontifically since 1970. There is no orthodoxy in 99.9% of the parishes, 100% of the schools, colleges, fraternal groups, and with Catholic Charities. Our consecrated Catholic cemeteries are full of urns of cremains that had no business being cremated or with bodies that have no business being interned in consecrated ground.
There's no big secret, but Sean is a shill for the Democratic Party and wearing his Capuchin habit is all for show. He's no Padre Pio, who actually said Holy Mass up to his heavenly reward.
While this appointment is only a membership and does not affect his assignment, his successor should have the initials SSPX at the end of his name.
