Lopes removes Ordinariate Priest for being, well, Catholic

"We were told that Fr. Treco was visited by Bp. Lopes, who essentially provided Fr Treco with the option of renouncing what he had said in the sermon (which Fr. Treco declined), or that he be removed as pastor, wherein he would have to take… wait for it…. further education classes so that he could better understand the post-conciliar church. We were also told, though, that Fr. Treco is free to continue as priest for St. Bede, even presiding over mass, just as long as he (a) does not deliver sermons or (b) has his sermons reviewed and signed off by the local diocesan priest prior to any such delivery.|

It has been hinted that Bp. Lopes was madder than a Vatican II bishop who has just been told that Jesus is a Divine Person.

Please, Friends, pray for Father Treco. I wrote to him with a word of support. I do not think he didn't care for it.

So now instead of just a few hundred people hearing the sermon, a few hundred thousand will hear it. And then all those people are going to google the bishop's name, find his picture, and confirm exactly what they were thinking about him all along: that he's a flaming faggot.

Of course. I know of a priest in my parish that is being silenced and persecuted for mentioning Catholic teaching. Happening all the time. The "church" hates the Catholic faith and is becoming one of the primary persecutors of the faith. Francis is supposed to help the destruction.

Dan said...

Dont worry though. Just keep sitting in those pews, you're not aiding and abetting the destruction of the faith at all...

Dan said...

I should mention that the young priests "crime" was mentioning that homosexuality was still considered a sin during a homily addressing the current crisis.

So naturally they MUST find a way to destroy him and "discover" that this priest didn't REALLY have a vocation. Not to worry though, cause "womyn deaconessas" will soon be coming. Of course "deaconess" may be too patriarchal of a term, so we will have to wait for the Francis to enlighten us.

Reminder. Be generous when you give to the bishop's annual appeal so that your dollars will help spread this new and improved gospel.

This follows the utter betrayal of the Chinese Catholics which has resulted in communists re-writing scripture (& sermons?) according to Mao Tse Tung. I hope to read a response from his congregation. These red tyrants crumble when confronted - even PF would if anyone in the Vatican had the b..ls to do so - they are all vacuous sodomites when their ecclesiastical garments are removed.

Wow! Almost certainly the best sermon I have ever heard from a priest whose jurisdiction is derived from the VII hierarchy (rather than simply "Supplied" by the urgent needs in this crisis).

Such well documented, carefully crafted, congruently delivered truth... I'm still stunned.
God Bless this man. May his martyrdom be the example that other priests need to follow the Truth rather than the relative comfort and security of their positions. And, may the support made available to Fr. Treco from the laity provide the assurance needed to other priests that teaching the Truth is the right thing to do - the only thing to do.

Each Rosary I pray includes, among other intentions, that all priests may receive and accept the graces that He offers them, reflecting them everywhere for the salvation of souls. Certainly, Fr. Treco is one such.

This is simply a case of a modernist liberal removing a modernist conservative. Trads should avoid getting emotionally invested in the plight of these modernist conservatives simply because they share some same values. Ask this modernist conservative where he stands on ecumenism and religious liberty and you will quickly hear a non Catholic response.

Tom A. said...

A "church" that hates the Catholic Faith is not the Catholic Church. Nor are priests of a "church" that hates the Catholic Faith, Catholic priests.

Tom A. said...

Lets pray he renounces V2 and the blasphemous NO fake mass as well.

Unknown said...

If he is an ordinariate priest how comes a non ordinariate bishop cam discipline him?

I'd wager that if he weren't an married Anglican convert/priest, and somewhat of a 'sacred cow' (no offense to the good Padre), he would have been gotten rid of completely and without hesitation. But it would be somewhat embarrassing for them to treat him that way. Many Protestant converts can see what is wrong with the Conciliar Church. It differs so little from the false church they were fleeing and resembles so little the traditional Catholic Church they are dreaming of in their hearts.

Hey Tom, The NO Mass I attend on Sunday is not a "fake Mass"; what you wrote is heresy!

what about blasphemous? When Christ is on the altar all the presumptuous peace givers turn their back on the altar where the resurrected Christ is displayed in all His glory. At least 95% of you do. Many not in a state of grace presume you can give peace, from where the Prince of peace is not.

Tom A. said...

Oh please, the NO V2 doesn't believe in heresy anymore. Unless of course you adhere to pre V2 Catholic teachings.

Peter Lamb said...

Dear Anonymous @4:05 pm, The NO priest is invalid, the NO bishop who ordained him is invalid, the "mass" he says is invalid and the NO cookie you eat is not the body of Christ. Your intention is good and you receive actual grace for that, but there is no Sacramental grace, because there is no sacrament. I am sure you attend with the very best of intentions, but the hard, sad truth is that you are giving support and recognition to the false judeo-modernist "church." Millions of good, poor, mislead souls are in the same boat. If you would like to go into the Sacramental theology to substantiate what I am saying, we can.

Peter, sorry, but you too are wrong.

Hello, I would like to offer some correction and clarification on the facts as presented here.

I am a parishioner of the Church of St. Bede the Venerable and was serving the Mass at which the announcement and letter from the Bishop was read. I know the original writer of the email personally. I also have spoken with Fr. Treco to get clarification and he even asked me to make these corrections.

The linked article and the portion shared here have a few factual errors.

- Bishop Lopes did not visit Fr. Treco. Fr. Treco was called to the chancery in Houston (he had to travel from MN to Houston in 1 day.) There was further communication via phone, email, and letter.
-The priest replacing Fr. Treco and now appointed as Parochial Administrator pro tempore is not a diocesan priest. He is succeeded by Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson, Ordinary Emeritus of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter who is here in MN teaching as a professor at St. Paul Seminary and is now our "pastor."
-Fr. Treco was never technically pastor, though he functioned spiritually as such. Fr. Treco has always been parochial administrator since St. Bede's has not been canonically erected as a parish but is, for now, what is canonically called a "community in formation."
-While we were told in a meeting after Mass during our usual "coffee hour" that Fr. Treco could still preach homilies if they were reviewed by ecclesiastical authorities, that is actually not correct. His faculties for both hearing confessions and preaching homilies have been withdrawn. If he is celebrating a Mass as a supply priest that requires a homily (such as a Sunday Mass or Holy Day of Obligation) he is to either have the deacon (if present) preach the homily or, if there is no deacon, what he is to read which is taken from the breviary as his homily.

That is all I would like to add at this point. As far as I am aware, these are the only factual errors present. I would like to of course point out this is not the fault of Vox Cantoris or Mr. Walker, but simply errors in the information received initially.

Please pray for Fr. Treco as well as his family (he is married as many former Anglican priests who have become Catholic are.) He is the best priest and probably the best man I have ever known.

Regardless of where there is persecution, I am confident in my Catholic upbringing to carry me through to dry land. My journey to dry land may be through hurricanes of pain, suffering and rejection but it won't defeat me. I am a confirmed soldier of Christ. I know what sin is and what it is not. The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want. Though I walk through the valley of death I will fear no evil. 27 years ago I was arrested at a Catholic Church for praying the rosary with 3 other Catholics during a homosexual gathering that was unquestionably opposed to Church teaching. The priest had left the door open and walked away for the evening. When the arrest reached the Archbishop's ears, the priest was gone.

Dear M. Prodigal, When was I promoted and why? :)

While I find a great deal of the sermon theologically sound, I have a hard time accepting that Chtist intended His Church to "oversee" temporal political affairs on earth. He was pretty clear when He said "My Kingdom is not of this world". He also said " I bring Peace that the world cannot give".
Spiritual Peace (which I believe is what Christ died to impart to us) may thrive in peaceful times, but they're not required for personal holiness. The Church grew by leaps and bounds under some of the harshest, non-peaceful conditions and did nothing in those Apostolic times but did nott try to "rule" while doing so.

Catholicism is not a "temporal empire" building institution like Islam. Jesus corrected the Apostles (along with the entire Jewish nation of His time) on this point. He even called Peter Saltan for not accepting The Messiah's destiny of persoal suffering and death.

I'm not making a personal comparison here but Maciel was also likely a very "traditional" preacher to all appearances or I doubt he'd have hoodwinked Pope John Paul I. Ajd his moneyed-up insitute had more vovlcations than any other in his day. The "good tree, good fruit....etc." falls apart if you go looking for the fruit with confirmation bias.

Things are rarelv as simple as they appear on the surface.

The old Latin Mass , if you will find a good Missal, and soak in the beauty of the words, and the meaning of the symbols, including all of signs of the Cross, the inclusions of all of the early martyrs remembrance, the insistence on excellence and accuracy in thought, word and deed instead of sentiment, and people pleasing eyeball connecting...etc, etc.

afjg:

9I heartily agree Roseanne.

While I did say "things are rarely as simple" as they're often reported, I don't want to give the Impression that I'm haooy with the state of things in today's Church. I woukd likely attend a Latin Mass if one was available anywhere near where I live but that is simply not the case.

I have become more acceoting of the fact that "The Eucharist is The Eucharist" if/when a valid consrcration takes place. Those that insist the NO Mass is invalid are simply wrong. IMO some often speak and act like the very Pharisees whom Christ castigated so strenuously while here in earth.

Keep the Faith, receive the Sacraments as reverently as you can and say the Rosary. I have found if I do my best to dovtgese simple things, that much of the rest fades away and becomes "background noise". I believe in times of doubt and unrest, that listening to Christ's gentle rebuke of Peter (when he asked about St.John's destiny) is the best advice.... "What is that to you...you follow Me".

(IOW...Mind your own business and do what Christ asks you to do"!)

Peace
