Perpetual Indulgence of Perversity Must Lead to Its Institutionalization, part one

The scandal, by now well-documented, I am sure, of the invitation extended by the Brooklyn—I mean, Los Angeles—Dodgers to the blasphemous group of transvestites that call themselves the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” to be honored this evening, that is, on Friday, June 16, 2023, the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, at Dodger Stadium is the result of abject indifference, if not open support, of this truly wicked group by various conciliar priests and presbyters.

This “organization” that is dedicated to the open mockery of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, His Most Blessed Mother, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the consecrated religious life and, quite indeed, almost everything about the Catholic Faith has been able to insinuate itself in some of the pervert-friendly parishes around the country, to say nothing of invading places such as the Cathedral of Saint Patrick in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, New York, on Sunday, December 10, 1989, during what was called an ACT-UP disruption of the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service that was presided over by John Joseph “Cardinal” O’Connor, the conciliar “archbishop” of New York from March 18, 1984, to May 3, 2000, that I witnessed personally.

Famously, the late Father Stephen Merriweather, then the conciliar church’s chancellor in the Archdiocese of San Francisco, permitted the “Sisters” of Perpetual Indulgence” to exhibit their sacrilegious behavior at the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer in the notorious Castro District of the city named after Saint Francis of Assisi, in 2006. This travesty took place around the same time that a conciliar “bishop” in Canada had permitted a pro-abort, pro-pervert presbyter to run for public office without any interference or reproof from Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI. This what I wrote about both scandals at the time:

To wit, the following story, appeared on, a Canadian-based Catholic news site. It was written by Hilary White and John-Henry Westen:

MONTREAL, October 30, 2006 ( - Fr. Raymond Gravel, the pro-abortion, and pro-gay 'marriage' parish priest of the Catholic diocese of Joliette announced last week that he would be running for the separatist Bloc Quebecois party in the federal by-election for the north Montreal riding of Repentigny. Today his diocese confirmed with that he has the permission of his bishop to run for public office, despite a prohibition of such activity in the Church's Code of Canon Law.
Gravel is a former homosexual prostitute and one of Canada's most vociferous opponents of Catholic teaching on homosexuality, marriage and the sanctity of life. His self-proclaimed goal in running for federal office is to "fight for justice."
Since the scandal through the 1980's of Fr. Robert Drinan, a US Jesuit priest who as a Congressman helped usher in the current situation with legalized abortion-on-demand, Catholic priests have been forbidden by the Church's Canon Law from running for or holding public office. This decree, however, as with most modern disciplinary rules, has the caveat that the local bishop can overrule if there is some serious necessity for the "protection of the rights of the Church or the promotion of the common good."
Thus far, Fr. Gravel's greatest claims to public notoriety have been his vociferous opposition to Catholic teaching on sexual purity and the sanctity of life. Even so, the Joliette Diocese has confirmed with that Gravel was given permission to run by his bishop, Gilles Lussier.
In 2004, Gravel boasted to a radio interviewer, "I am pro-choice and there is not a bishop on earth that will prevent me from receiving Communion, not even the Pope."
In February this year, Gravel joined a group of nineteen priests in issuing a letter condemning Catholic teaching on sexual purity and opposing the bishops' submissions to Parliament against the same-sex "marriage" law.
The diocesan spokesman said that when Fr. Gravel takes on the role of politician, he may not function in any way as a priest. "It was decided that M. Gravel, during his political adventure, is relieved of his functions as a priest giving out the Sacraments, saying Mass and hearing marriages. Although he's still a priest."
Gilles Ferland, Communications Director for the Joliette diocese, said that part of the agreement was that Gravel would not take positions as a politician that "go against the doctrines of the Church."
Aside from his history of public opposition to those teachings, however, his choice to run for the Bloc Quebecois party that supports homosexual 'marriage,' abortion, and a host of others issues counter to the sanctity of life and family, would put him at odds with the Church from the outset.
Ferland told that the Vatican was not consulted by the diocese in making the decision. "No, it is not the Vatican that gives permission, it is the bishop. The responsibility to accept or refuse the request was his."
When asked if the bishop had raised the issue with any other bishops, the response was, "No, not at all."
The diocese' council of priests, the "presbyteral council" was consulted, however, and agreed. Ferland said the other priests of the diocese felt there was no problem. It was understood that "this is (Fr. Gravel's) career plan," Ferland said.
The Globe and Mail notes that Gravel himself speculated last year in an interview in a homosexual magazine that at least half of Quebec's priests are homosexuals.
"I would say that 50 per cent of the priests in Quebec are gay," he said. "But if I became a priest, it's because I'm a believer and I believe in the message of Christ."'s calls to Canada's nuncio and to Fr. Gravel at his parish were not returned by deadline.
(“Pro-Choice”, Pro-Gay Priest Given Permission from Bishop but not Vatican to Run for Politics.)

Yes, conciliarism always has a catch. Priests and religious are prohibited by the conciliar code of canon law from running for public office, except, of course, if the local bishop deems it "necessary" to give permission.

Ah, yes, the "springtime of the Church." One can be disciplined by Joseph Ratzinger one day but remain a priest in canonical good standing despite his support for baby-killing under cover of law and for "marriage" between those steeped in perversity. Yesterday's slap-on-the-wrist disciplinary letter is no impediment, however, to receiving a conciliar bishop's approbation a few years later to run for public office even though most Catholics believe that John Paul II was supposed to have barred all priests and religious from running for public office and from serving in positions of civil governance. The scandals of the pro-abortion serving Father Robert Drinan in the United States House of Representatives, of Sister Agnes Mansour serving as the head of the State of Michigan's Department of Social Services, which administered a Medicaid program that funded abortions for low-income women, and of Fathers Miguel d'Escoto and Ernesto Cardenal serving in the Sandinista government of Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua, were to have been things of the past. No, not in conciliarism, where such Hegelian slogans of pluriformity in unity and continuity in discontinuity are supposed to make perfect positivist sense. You are not allowed to run for office except when you are allowed to run for office. Makes perfect Hegelian sense, doesn't it?

In plain English, folks, this is a travesty, yet just another indication of the depths of depravity to which into which the counterfeit religion must perforce continue to fall as it makes it "accommodations" to the spirit of the modern state. It is not an impediment in the conciliar church for a Catholic priest to openly announce his support for abortion and for "same-sex marriage" and to remain a Catholic in good standing, no less to run as an ostensible cleric for public office while supporting these abominations.

Not to be outdone, of course, the conciliar Chancellor of the Archdiocese of San Francisco had been planning to sponsor event in the parish of which he is the pastor, Most Holy Redeemer, that is so gross and vulgar that any mention of its details would be an offense against all decency and modesty. A columnist and attorney by the name of Allyson Smith wrote the Chancellor, Father Stephen A. Meriweather. Unfortunately, Mrs. Smith's letter contains some of the graphic details that I consider too gross to include on this site. Here is, however, one brief excerpt:

Words fail to express my outrage at finding out that you are allowing the blasphemous sodomite drag queens, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, to use Most Holy Redeemer for their perverted, pornographic bingo games. You are not only the pastor of MHR, you are the CHANCELLOR of the San Francisco Archdiocese! How could you--how dare you--allow these perverts to desecrate Most Holy Redeemer by openly parading their abominable homosexual vice in the very same building where the true Most Holy Redeemer, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is present in His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity?

Are you out of your mind -- or do you find nothing wrong with this? Do you approve of sodomy, one of the sins that cries out to Heaven for vengeance, and of allowing open sodomites to desecrate our Lord's Real Presence and His temple? It certainly appears so, as I just called your church and a staffer there, Joey, confirmed that you are aware of these activities and that they are taking place with your approval.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence make endless mockery of our Lord's sacrifice at Calvary and of good, faithful nuns who spend their lives in prayerful, selfless service to the Church. They openly display their perversion in public streets during "gay pride" parades -- and now, apparently, in your own parish. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME! . . . .

HOW DARE YOU ALLOW PORN DVDs AND [unspeakable products] TO BE GIVEN AWAY IN THE HOUSE OF GOD? God have mercy on you and these wicked degenerates!!!

The [website for this perverted group] contains an announcement that the "Sisters" will hold their next bingo game at Most Holy Redeemer  this Thursday, November 2, ALL SOULS DAY! What a horrific way to mock Jesus Christ, who died to save sinners, by allowing unrepentant, mocking sodomites to hold their bingo game on that day in a Catholic church!

Father Meriwether, I beg and demand that you put an immediate stop to this terrible sacrilege. Kick the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence out of Most Holy Redeemer NOW. And, as you do, tell them to go to Confession and repent of their abominable homosexual vice. Do not aid and abet their mortal sin and blasphemies any longer. And seek forgiveness yourself for allowing our Lord to be mocked and vilified so hideously in your own parish.

Leaving aside the probability that Our Lord is not present at Most Holy Redeemer Church, Mrs. Smith properly expressed her outrage as a Catholic about this travesty. Her letter did result in a rather prompt and most appropriate response from the Archdiocese of San Francisco, which stated that the event has been canceled and that Father Meriwether is "on leave from his duties." This is indeed most welcomed and to be congratulated. Here is the statement issued by the Archdiocese of San Francisco on October 30, 2006:

Permission to use Ellard Hall should not have been given to the  group [the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence]. The Archdiocese of San Francisco  has directed the parish to end the arrangement immediately. For years the  group has directed contempt and ridicule at Catholic faith and practices. The  particular targets of the group’s derision are women in religious communities,  for whom Catholics, and many non-Catholics, have a special reverence and  respect.

Fr. Meriwether is on leave from his duties.

It remains to be seen whether some of the laity in leadership positions in the parish will "direct" parishioners to an alternate venue for the "performance," if not arrange that venue themselves. This is a standard modus operandi when a chancery office cancels something odious on church grounds after protests are lodged and made public. Stay tuned.

For example, a lecture by Father Richard McBrien, the notorious "theologian" from the University of Notre Dame, who remains in "good standing" as a priest in the Archdiocese of Hartford, Connecticut, was held at the Performing Arts Center in Appleton, Wisconsin, six months ago. The lecture was promoted actively by Our Lady of Lourdes Church in De Pere, Wisconsin. Telephone calls to the Diocese of Green Bay were met with the "explanation" that the event was not being sponsored by the diocese and was not being held on diocesan property. Do not be surprised if something similar happens in San Francisco with the event that had been scheduled to take place at Most Holy Redeemer Church.

What remains an enduring scandal in Archdiocese of San Francisco, however, is that Father Meriwether had enjoyed the confidence of William Levada when he was the Archbishop of San Francisco from 1995 to 2005. Furthermore, the invitation extended to the perverted group did not just "happen." That the event was scheduled at all is indicative of the underlying ethos that has been fostered within the infrastructure of the Archdiocese of San Francisco for many decades now. How many of the people who planned this event will retain their positions?

Yet another scandal is that the current conciliar “archbishop of San Francisco, George Niederauer, had praised the pro-sodomite motion picture Brokeback Mountain upon its debut earlier this year. Niederauer, a product of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, co-owns a beach house in southern California with his predecessor, another product of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the current conciliar prefect of the so-called Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, William “Cardinal” Levada.

Although, thankfully protesting in Sodom-by-Bay does appear to have gotten somewhere regarding the proposed "performance" at Most Holy Redeemer Church, the Homosexual Collective is still quite active in the Archdiocese of San Francisco, especially as young people are propagandized by "programs" that undermine the innocence and purity of children and adolescents. One must recognize that conciliarism and its novelties, including that episcopal collegiality, make it impossible for believing Catholics across the contemporary ecclesiastical divides to reverse all of the ceaseless outrages against God and His Sacred Honor and Glory that are committed on a regular basis under the official auspices of the conciliar officials.

The problem here, ultimately, is not in San Francisco, it is in conciliar Rome itself, where Benedict places the Protestant syncretistic Roger Schutz in Heaven and convinces himself that the revolution he helped to wrought as a peritus at the Second Vatican Council has produced a veritable "springtime of the Church." His revolution has been a rejection of the constant patrimony of the Catholic Church and a disaster at the pastoral level for the souls for whom Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood. One must reject conciliarism and then come to recognize that what is happening at Most Holy Redeemer Church, which is in the temporary hands of non-Catholics, does not emanate from the Catholic Church at all.

There are several other contemporary examples of the rot involving the sodomite infestation of the conciliar structures (including a pending document to be released in two weeks by the United States Conference of Conciliar Bishops, USCCB, which will encourage the baptism of the children "adopted" by "gay couples). An elderly reader wrote to me a few days ago to explain that she was leaving the internet to concentrate on her prayer life before she dies, "Why do I have to keep up with the problems in the conciliar church. I don't keep up with the problems in various Protestant sects. Why should I bother myself with the outrages taking place in Catholic structures that are now in the control of the non-Catholic conciliarists?" Indeed. The conciliar church is of its very synthetic nature a positivist exercise to convince believing Catholics that it is the Catholic Church. It is not. (From: A Positivist's Work is Never Done, October 31, 2006. A follow-up commentary, Yet Another Conciliar Shell Game was published on November 18, 2006, to explain that Father Stephen A. Meriweather was placed on a brief administrative leave before being permitted to return to the self-described “gay” parish, the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer.)

Well, it was nearly a year later that “Brokeback Mountain” George Niederauer personally gave what purported to be Holy Communion to the wretched “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” during a staging of the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical abomination:

What could not be verified yesterday morning was verified by yesterday afternoon: the conciliar "archbishop" of San Francisco, California, George Niederauer, did indeed give what purports to be "Holy Communion" during a Novus Ordo service at Most Holy Redeemer Church in San Francisco on Sunday, October 7, 2007, to two cross-dressing "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence." The photographs proving that this sacrilege of distributing what Niederauer presumably believes is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ within the context of the sacrilege of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo Missae were taken by members of the Saint Joseph's Men's Society, which is based in northern California. The photographs are authentic. George Niederauer distributed "Holy Communion" in a Novus Ordo to two people who were dressed in a bizarre costume that mocks the consecrated religious life, two people who are dedicated to the public promotion of the very thing, sin, that caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to undergo such fearsome suffering in His Passion and Death and that caused His Most Blessed Mother's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart to be pierced through and through with Seven Swords of Sorrow.

Once again, here is the photograph of the moment when Niederauer gave what Novus Ordoites believe is Holy Communion to the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence:"
