Rome's Forbearance With Sacrilege

by Thomas A. Droleskey

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:"


Here are photographs from the Most Holy Redeemer website showing that the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" were indeed present at the Novus Ordo service as shown by the photographs taken by the members of the Saint Joseph's Men's Society:

Look at the upper left hand corner for the yellow and green "wreath," shall we call it?

Who are the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence?" Here is an excerpt form a letter to Father Stephen A. Meriweather, the conciliar pastor of Most Holy Redeemer Church, from a Catholic writer by the name of Allyson Smith when it became public knowledge that the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" were being permitted to use Ellard Hall, facility of the parish, to run their "bingo games" and sell pornographic digital video disks (DVDs):

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.


Father Meriweather was placed on a temporary leave from his duties by the Archdiocese of San Francisco after the event became known. Indeed, the conciliar authorities of the archdiocese even issued the following statement on October 30, 2006, about the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence:"

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.

Father Meriwether's leave did not last long. It was, as noted last year in Yet Another Conciliar Shell Game, Father Meriwether's temporary leave from Most Holy Redeemer Church was a mere public relations move. True, Meriwether is no longer the conciliar chancellor of the Archdiocese of San Francisco. He is still at Most Holy Redeemer Church, which sponsored a booth--with the permission of the conciliar authorities of the Archdiocese of San Francisco--at the celebration of perversity that took place this past weekend at the annual Castro Street "fair." Father Meriwether's pastorate at Most Holy Redeemer Church has also featured at least one bulletin announcement, published on September 16, 2007, extolling the birth of a child to two men "wedded" in their perversity:

Congratulations to parishioners James Donaher and Joel Alegria on the birth of twins Isabella and Ian, whom we look forward to baptizing soon during our Sunday Liturgy.”

There has never been a time in the history of the Church, not even when Saint Peter Damian was exposing the problems of perverted priests to Pope Leo IX in the Eleventh Century, when a Catholic parish treated two men living in a situation of open perversity as a "couple" with the same status and rights as a man and woman joined together validly in the Holy Sacrament of Matrimony. Two men with twin babies? One has a situation of perversity coupled with one where babies were conceived via the immoral means of in vitro fertilization, making a mockery of God's Sovereignty over the sanctity of the procreative powers of human beings.

Mrs. Randy Engel's The Rite of Sodomy explains how Saint Peter Damian condemned that which is glorified at Most Holy Redeemer Church on a regular basis:

According to Damian, the vice of sodomy "surpasses the enormity of all others," because:

"Without fail, it brings death to the body and destruction to the soul. It pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust. It leads to error, totally removes truth from the deluded mind ... It opens up hell and closes the gates of paradise ... It is this vice that violates temperance, slays modesty, strangles chastity, and slaughters virginity ... It defiles all things, sullies all things, pollutes all things ... This vice excludes a man from the assembled choir of the Church ... it separates the soul from God to associate it with demons. This utterly diseased queen of Sodom renders him who obeys the laws of her tyranny infamous to men and odious to God... She strips her knights of the armor of virtue, exposing them to be pierced by the spears of every vice ... She humiliates her slave in the church and condemns him in court; she defiles him in secret and dishonors him in public; she gnaws at his conscience like a worm and consumes his flesh like fire. ... this unfortunate man (he) is deprived of all moral sense, his memory fails, and the mind's vision is darkened. Unmindful of God, he also forgets his own identity. This disease erodes the foundation of faith, saps the vitality of hope, dissolves the bond of love. It makes way with justice, demolishes fortitude, removes temperance, and blunts the edge of prudence. Shall I say more?" (Mrs. Randy Engel, The Rite of Sodomy, p. 53.)


Most Holy Redeemer Church in San Francisco, California, has embraced utter degradation. Mrs. Engel has written a letter via e-mail to the lay administrator of Most Holy Redeemer Church seeking an explanation of the bulletin announcement about the men with the twins. She has received no response as of this posting.

Naturally, of course, the conciliarists must make a good "show" of things now and again, which is why the conciliar authorities in San Francisco issued the statement that they did in October of 2006, indicating that they knew full well about the horrific nature of the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence." It is all a show, however, as demonstrated by the simple fact that the "archbishop" himself decides to give these people who make a mockery of the Faith and who celebrate quite publicly their own sins what he believes to be Holy Communion. Then again, this is all the rotten fruit of over forty years of making a mockery of the Faith by means of the Novus Ordo, is it not? How can a conciliar "archbishop" who praised a motion picture, Brokeback Mountain, propagandizing in favor of perversity be expected to refuse what he believes, falsely, of course, to be Holy Communion to perverts in demonic costumes when putative "popes" have distributed what purports to be Holy Communion to half-naked people in Africa and Asia and Australia (and Rome itself on occasion)?

The Novus Ordo's mania for the "inculturation of the Gospel" and conciliarism's de facto embrace of the heresy of universal salvation have convinced Niederauer, it appears, that no one can be denied what purports to be Holy Communion in the Novus Ordo, including known promoters of perversion who mock the Catholic Faith. This could never--emphasis on never--have happened in the Catholic Church. That it happens all the time in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, which apes but is not the Catholic Church, is simply a sign of the apostasy that has wrecked the sensus Catholicus of so many within its ranks, admitting quite readily that there are "clergy" and members of the laity in the conciliar structures who have maintained the Faith as best as they can and who are justifiably outraged by events such as the one that took place three days ago. And another telling sign of the apostasy represented by the counterfeit church of conciliarism is that men such as Niederauer who are responsible for sacrileges and blasphemous outrages almost never find themselves being disciplined by the conciliar authorities in Rome. The novelty of episcopal collegiality rules the day.

An additional wrinkle to this sordid story is the abject silence about it from many in the Motu communities. Silence must rule the day in order not to threaten the "privileges" extended by Summorum Pontificum. Silence ruled the day two months, seven days ago when Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI called Mount Hiei in Japan, a place where the Tendei sect of the false, demonic religion of Buddhism got its first "stronghold, "sacred." Defending the rights of God Himself? Calling for acts of reparation for this outrage committed against the First Commandment? No, silence ruled the day in most Motu circles. Silence. The same silence that is ruling the day amongst so many, although certainly not all, traditionally-minded Catholics still attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

The Catholic Faith teaches us to speak out in the midst of apostasy and sacrilege, not to be silent, pretending that such things are just going to "go away" all on their own. Pope Pius VI explained it this way in Inscrutabile, December 25, 1775 (hey, it's been a while since I last used this passage!):

Consequently, you who are the salt of the earth, guardians and shepherds of the Lord's flock, whose business it is to fight the battles of the Lord, arise and gird on your sword, which is the word of God, and expel this foul contagion from your lands. How long are we to ignore the common insult to faith and Church? Let the words of Bernard arouse us like a lament of the spouse of Christ: "Of old was it foretold and the time of fulfillment is now at hand: Behold, in peace is my sorrow most sorrowful. It was sorrowful first when the martyrs died; afterwards it was more sorrowful in the fight with the heretics and now it is most sorrowful in the conduct of the members of the household.... The Church is struck within and so in peace is my sorrow most sorrowful. But what peace? There is peace and there is no peace. There is peace from the pagans and peace from the heretics, but no peace from the children. At that time the voice will lament: Sons did I rear and exalt, but they despised me. They despised me and defiled me by a bad life, base gain, evil traffic, and business conducted in the dark." Who can hear these tearful complaints of our most holy mother without feeling a strong urge to devote all his energy and effort to the Church, as he has promised? Therefore cast out the old leaven, remove the evil from your midst. Forcefully and carefully banish poisonous books from the eyes of your flock, and at once courageously set apart those who have been infected, to prevent them harming the rest. The holy Pope Leo used to say, "We can rule those entrusted to us only by pursuing with zeal for the Lord's faith those who destroy and those who are destroyed and by cutting them off from sound minds with the utmost severity to prevent the plague spreading." In doing this We exhort and advise you to be all of one mind and in harmony as you strive for the same object, just as the Church has one faith, one baptism, and one spirit. As you are joined together in the hierarchy, so you should unite equally with virtue and desire.

The affair is of the greatest importance since it concerns the Catholic faith, the purity of the Church, the teaching of the saints, the peace of the empire, and the safety of nations. Since it concerns the entire body of the Church, it is a special concern of yours because you are called to share in Our pastoral concern, and the purity of the faith is particularly entrusted to your watchfulness. "Now therefore, Brothers, since you are overseers among God's people and their soul depends on you, raise their hearts to your utterance," that they may stand fast in faith and achieve the rest which is prepared for believers only. Beseech, accuse, correct, rebuke and fear not: for ill-judged silence leaves in their error those who could be taught, and this is most harmful both to them and to you who should have dispelled the error. The holy Church is powerfully refreshed in the truth as it struggles zealously for the truth. In this divine work you should not fear either the force or favor of your enemies. The bishop should not fear since the anointing of the Holy Spirit has strengthened him: the shepherd should not be afraid since the prince of pastors has taught him by his own example to despise life itself for the safety of his flock: the cowardice and depression of the hireling should not dwell in a bishop's heart. Our great predecessor Gregory, in instructing the heads of the churches, said with his usual excellence: "Often imprudent guides in their fear of losing human favor are afraid to speak the right freely. As the word of truth has it, they guard their flock not with a shepherd's zeal but as hirelings do, since they flee when the wolf approaches by hiding themselves in silence.... A shepherd fearing to speak the right is simply a man retreating by keeping silent." But if the wicked enemy of the human race, the better to frustrate your efforts, ever brings it about that a plague of epidemic proportions is hidden from the religious powers of the world, please do not be terrified but walk in God's house in harmony, with prayer, and in truth, the three arms of our service. Remember that when the people of Juda were defiled, the best means of purification was the public reading to all, from the least to the greatest, of the book of the law lately found by the priest Helcias in the Lord's temple; at once the whole people agreed to destroy the abominations and seal a covenant in the Lord's presence to follow after the Lord and observe His precepts, testimonies and ceremonies with their whole heart and soul."For the same reason Josaphat sent priests and Levites to bring the book of the law throughout the cities of Juda and to teach the people. The proclamation of the divine word has been entrusted to your faith by divine, not human, authority. So assemble your people and preach to them the gospel of Jesus Christ. From that divine source and heavenly teaching draw draughts of true philosophy for your flock. Persuade them that subjects ought to keep faith and show obedience to those who by God's ordering lead and rule them. To those who are devoted to the ministry of the Church, give proofs of faith, continence, sobriety, knowledge, and liberality, that they may please Him to whom they have proved themselves and boast only of what is serious, moderate, and religious. But above all kindle in the minds of everyone that love for one another which Christ the Lord so often and so specifically praised. For this is the one sign of Christians and the bond of perfection.


A "priest" of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter told us over eight months ago now that he now responsibility to oppose error. Oh, no? Take a look at Inscrutabile, if you will. Those of you in the Motu communities who hold your tongues about the outrages of conciliarism are aiding and abetting travesties against the honor and glory of God that also injure the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross. You have taken your place as "High Anglicans" in the One World Ecumenical Church wrought by conciliarism and its various apostasies. Silence in the face of what happened at Most Holy Redeemer Church in San Francisco, California, this past Sunday, the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (which is also "Respect Life" Sunday in the conciliar structures), is in the service of none other than the adversary, not of God and His Holy Church.

Keep remembering these words from Saint Teresa of Avila:

"Know this: it is by very little breaches of regularity that the devil succeeds in introducing the greatest abuses. May you never end up saying: 'This is nothing, this is an exaggeration.'" (Saint Teresa of Avila, Foundations, Chapter Twenty-nine.)


Karol Wojtyla made George Niederauer a "bishop" in the counterfeit church of conciliarism at the behest of his friend and classmate Roger Mahony. William Levada, a classmate of Niederauer's and Mahony's who was made a conciliar "bishop" by Karol Wojtyla and appointed to his current position as the prefect of the conciliar Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith by Joseph Ratzinger, chose Niederauer to replace himself as the conciliar"archbishop" of San Francisco. Once again, this all lands at the doorstep of Joseph Ratzinger, who is as irresponsible in reaffirming sacrilege and apostasy as was his not-so-saintly predecessor.

A telephone message was left and an e-mail was sent to Mr. Maurice Healy, the Director of Communications for the Archdiocese of San Francisco, on Tuesday, October 9, 2007. No response has been received to the e-mail message, which is hereby pasted for your review:

Dear Mr. Healy,

An attempt was made to reach you by telephone earlier today.

In light of the documented evidence that the conciliar "Archbishop" of San Francisco, George Niederauer, who once praised the motion picture that celebrated the sin of Sodomy, Brokeback Mountain, gave what purports to be Holy Communion in a Novus Ordo service at Most Holy Redeemer Church on the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, October 7, 2007, I would like to know what can justify the distribution of what is believed to be Holy Communion to people who publicly promote and celebrate the very thing that caused Our Lord to suffer in His Sacred Humanity on the wood of the Holy Cross, sin?

Will "Archbishop" Niederauer tender his resignation for how he has blasphemed God and His Most Blessed Mother on the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary?

Sincerely yours in Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen,

Thomas A. Droleskey, Ph.D.


Mr. Healy did find time to respond to LifeSite, providing that webiste with a statement from "Archbishop" Niederauer:

"At Most Holy Redeemer Church Oct. 7, I noticed no protest, no demonstration, no disruption of the Sunday Eucharist," said Archbishop Nierderauer.  "The congregation was devout and the liturgy was celebrated with reverence. Toward the end of the Communion line two strangely dressed persons came to receive Communion. I did not see any mock religious garb. As I recall, one of them wore a large flowered hat or garland."

The "Sisters" were heavily involved in the recent Folsom Street Fair which in addition to full nudity and public sex acts by homosexuals involved included a mockery of the Last Supper with Christ and his apostles represented by leather-clad homosexuals.  Bishop Niederauer stressed that he had denounced the poster.  "In the past when the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence or other groups have ridiculed the Church I have denounced their actions," said the Archbishop. "Only a week ago, Catholic San Francisco carried my remarks condemning the derisive use of the Last Supper on a poster printed by some other local group." San Francisco Archbishop Responds After Caught on Video Giving Communion to Gay Men Dressed as Nuns  


This is what took three days to release? This? "Archbishop" Niederauer did not recognize these draq queens as members of the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence"? Why were people dressed in such hideous garb permitted in the church in the first place? Did Niederauer denounce the Castro Street Fair or revoke permission for Most Holy Redeemer Church to have a booth there? Did he denounce sodomy as one of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance? No. He gave what he believes is Holy Communion to drag queens. He's spent enough time around perverts to recognize a drag queen. He couldn't do so on Sunday, October 7, 2007?

We are living through the Mystical Passion and Death of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as those who purport to be Catholic but are actually apostates have seized the institutions of the Catholic Church and claimed them for themselves, thereby deceiving so many truly well-meaning Catholics into thinking that the Catholic Church is the author of these problems. Pope Pius XI noted in Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928, that the Catholic Church simply cannot be the author of error and sacrilege:

So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics: for the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it, for in the past they have unhappily left it. To the one true Church of Christ, we say, which is visible to all, and which is to remain, according to the will of its Author, exactly the same as He instituted it. During the lapse of centuries, the mystical Spouse of Christ has never been contaminated, nor can she ever in the future be contaminated, as Cyprian bears witness: "The Bride of Christ cannot be made false to her Spouse: she is incorrupt and modest. She knows but one dwelling, she guards the sanctity of the nuptial chamber chastely and modestly."The same holy Martyr with good reason marveled exceedingly that anyone could believe that "this unity in the Church which arises from a divine foundation, and which is knit together by heavenly sacraments, could be rent and torn asunder by the force of contrary wills." For since the mystical body of Christ, in the same manner as His physical body, is one, compacted and fitly joined together, it were foolish and out of place to say that the mystical body is made up of members which are disunited and scattered abroad: whosoever therefore is not united with the body is no member of it, neither is he in communion with Christ its head.


Conciliar Rome shows great forbearance with sacrilege. Why not? It is in the grip of apostasy as it continues to offend God each time the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service is "offered" by a conciliar "bishop" or "priest."

We must, therefore, intensify our daily acts of reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. We must not kid ourselves into thinking that our sins, whether great or small, numerous or few, have not contributed mightily to the worsening of the state of the Church Militant here on the face of this earth. We must make reparation for our own sins as we make reparation for the sins of others, praying that those responsible for wanton sacrilege and apostasy will receive the graces to quit the counterfeit church of conciliarism and to rejoin the ranks of the Catholic Church as the totally consecrated slaves of the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, whose Divine Maternity we celebrate today, October 11, 2007.

Francisco Marto was told that he would have to pray many Rosaries before he could go to Heaven. What about us? Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us now and the hour of our deaths. Amen.

All to you, Blessed Mother. All to your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you. Save souls!

The Longer Version of the Saint Michael the Archangel Prayer, composed by Pope Leo XIII, 1888

O glorious Archangel Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly host, be our defense in the terrible warfare which we carry on against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, spirits of evil.  Come to the aid of man, whom God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil.  Fight this day the battle of our Lord, together with  the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in heaven.  That cruel, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels.  Behold this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage.  Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the Name of God and of His Christ, to seize upon, slay, and cast into eternal perdition, souls destined for the crown of eternal glory.  That wicked dragon pours out. as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity.  These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on Her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck the sheep may be scattered.  Arise then, O invincible Prince, bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God, and give them the victory.  They venerate thee as their protector and patron; in thee holy Church glories as her defense against the malicious powers of hell; to thee has God entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude.  Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put Satan under our feet, so far conquered that he may no longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church.  Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High, so that they may quickly conciliate the mercies of the Lord; and beating down the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, do thou again make him captive in the abyss, that he may no longer seduce the nations.  Amen.

Verse: Behold the Cross of the Lord; be scattered ye hostile powers.

Response: The Lion of the Tribe of Juda has conquered the root of David.

Verse: Let Thy mercies be upon us, O Lord.

Response: As we have hoped in Thee.

Verse: O Lord hear my prayer.

Response: And let my cry come unto Thee.

Verse: Let us pray.  O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon Thy holy Name, and as suppliants, we implore Thy clemency, that by the intercession of Mary, ever Virgin, immaculate and our Mother, and of the glorious Archangel Saint Michael, Thou wouldst deign to help us against Satan and all other unclean spirits, who wander about the world for the injury of the human race and the ruin of our souls. 

Response:  Amen.
