|The beleaguered St Rose of Lima, Miami Shores|
After reading this I was incredulous that Archbishop Wenski could even think of castigating the faithful with charges of “slanderous gossip, calumny and detraction” much less publically say it. But as ever, protecting those priests who are perverted is the job of an archbishop I suppose, since apparently parish unity is more important than dismissing a priest for sexual improprieties with a male prostitute, there being a priest shortage and all. But a priest immersed in the filth of homosexuality, lying, and living a private life of grave sin with a male prostitute cannot lead souls to heaven. It’s impossible.
All former bulletins on St Rose of Lima’s website have been scrubbed, the Archdiocese of Miami (ADOM) is in frantic damage control, and Archbishop Wenski is probably hoping no one surfaces with a big, “I told you so”. [I’ll send him an email.]
One more bit of information: Fr Pedro Corces was the Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Miami from 1996 to 2006. Granted, Archbishop Wenski was Coadjutor Bishop of Orlando from 2003-2004 then Bishop of Orlando from 2004-2010, however he was an Auxiliary Bishop in Miami from 1997-2003. Therefore during the 7 overlapping years when he was in the Miami Chancery he must have has some input as to who would be the Archdiocese's Vocations Director. I wonder how many vocations Fr Pedro Corces got for Miami...that is, good and holy men for the priesthood.
